WEB DESK – The Lahore High Court (LHC) moved to register case of treason against Mir Shakilur Rehman, Jang Group and Geo Television Network for maligning the national security institute over alleged murder attempt on Hamid Mir.
A petition was filed in LHC on Monday by one Sardar Aftab in which the petitioner maintained that inquiry on Hamid Mir’s alleged murder attempt was not even initiated and the group started maligning Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) for it.
The petitioner also stated in the petition that Jang and Geo Group were trying to sabotage the integrity of ISI and Pakistan Army.
Earlier, the Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Major General Asim Najwa had also hinted to carry out legal actions against the Jang and Geo group for their ‘baseless’ maligning on the ISI and its chief Lt General Zaheerul Islam.
Its worth mentioning here that after the alleged murder attempt on Hamid Mir, Geo and Jang group never wasted a minute to run the whole course of transmission in order to prove that how Hamid Mir himself had nominated ISI and Lt General Zaheerul Islam if anything happened to him.
However, it was only after damnation and criticism on behalf of other media outlets and general public, Geo and Jang Group changed their stance and started publishing/broadcasting news that they are not accusing any institute nor pointing fingers at anyone rather demanding a free and fair investigations.
