An appeal to the Chief Justice of Pakistan

By Sarah Khan

An appeal to the Chief Justice of Pakistan

Apply Article 6 of the Constitution on Dr Shahid Masood, Shaheen Sehbai, Ansar Abbasi, their other accomplices, and owners of Geo TV/ Jang Group.

According to the constitution of Pakistan (Article 6):

6. (1) Any person who abrogates or attempts or conspires to abrogate, subverts or attempts or conspires to subverts the constitution by use of force or show of force or by other unconstitutional means shall be guilty of high treason.

(2) Any person aiding or abetting the acts mentioned in clause (1) shall likewise be guilty of high treason.

(3) Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) shall by law provide for the punishment of persons found guilty of high treason.

Honourable Chief Justice:

It is common knowledge that certain agents of anti-democracy establishment in Pakistan, namely Dr Shahid Masood, Shaheen Sehbai, Ansar Abbasi and their other accomplices (Saaleh Zafir, Muhammad Ahmed Noorani etc), as well as owners of Geo TV / Jang Group, are openly conspiring to derail democracy in Pakistan. On more than one occasions in their columns or TV appearances, these persons have openly invited or encouraged the Pakistan Army to take ultra-constitutional measures to either dissolve the parliament or to remove President Asif Ali Zardari from his position as the duly elected constitutional president of Pakistan.

While we understand that the professional leadership of Pakistan Army is committed to its oath and duties as per the constitution of Pakistan, the conspiracies, acts and speeches of these three persons (Shahid Masood, Ansar Abbasi and Shaheen Sehbai) and also of their other accomplices in Geo TV/ Jang Group (and certain other parts of the Pakistani media and politics), tantamount to abetting and aiding in conspiring to abrogate, subvert or attempt or conspire to subvert the constitution by use of force or show of force or by other unconstitutional means.

These three persons and their accomplices, therefore, my lord, are guilty of high treason according to the Article 6 of the constitution of Pakistan.

You are requested to initiate a suo moto acation against the culprits, and award them with an exemplary punishment consistent with the spirit of the constitution of Pakistan.

Yours sincerely
Sarah Khan

چیف جسٹس آف پاکستان کے نام ایک درد مندانہ اپیل
مٹ جائے گی مخلوق تو انصاف کرو گے ؟

ڈاکٹر شاہد مسعود انصار عباسیاور شاہین صہبای، ان کے مالکان (جیو اور جنگ گروپ ) جیسے لوگ جو کھلے عام جمہوریت کے خلاف باتین کرتے ہیں جو کھلے عام فوج کو آئین پاکستان توڑنے کی دعوت دیتے ہیں.. جوجنرل کیانی کو خط لکھتے ہیں یا اپنے پروگرام میں فوج کو مداخلت کی ترغیب دیتے ہیں، ایسے لوگوں کے لیے آئین میں سزا آرٹیکل نمبر ٦ کے تحت درج ہے.
ہم پاکستانی عوام چیف جسٹس آف پاکستان جناب افتخار محمّد چودھری سے اپیل کرتے ہیں کہ سو موٹو نوٹس لیتے ہوے عدالت ان دونوں غدداروں اور ان کے شریک جرم لوگوں کو گرفتار کر کے آئین کے تحت ان کو موت کی سزا سنائے.
آئین پاکستان کا جو غدّار ہے وہ قانونی طور پر پھانسی کا حقدار ہے

Haq bajanib farmaya. This is what we need,CJP had to take action against these traitors who are disturbing the democratic system of Pakistan and inviting Army to rule. Those who had used the slogan RULE OF LAW in their Long March, we are reminding you your promise which u have made before getting your seats. Please hang these traitors so we can say that our media is doing their job according to the consitution and law. At this time no one is saying truth but they are using their powers to drail democratic setup and clearly inviting a Dictator to take over the Government and ruin the system as the 4 of dictators had ruined our Country. Democracy is the best revenge and yeah Mohtarma said this because this is the best way to make our Country the best as we can. Spokespersons of Taliban should be hanged According to Article 6. We want Rule Of Law, We want this Government to complete their 5 years!

Credibility of Shaheen Sehbai & General (R) Musharraf !


Mr Shaheen Sehbai in fervour of "Get Asif Ali Zardari" is ready to give importance to the negative statements of Musharraf against Zardari whereas Mr Shaheen Sehbai himself used to trash Musharraf in his web based magazine South Asia Tribune [Shaheen Sehbai Founded this magazine after he escaped from Pakistan in 2002 to seek political asylum in USA]. Let say and assume that Musharraf is right about Zardari [as per Shaheen Sehbai] but then question arises about Shaheen Sehbai's veracity about Musharraf???

Dr Shahid Masood has been tasked to weaken the Pakistani nation. In this task, he is being helped by the Zionist lobby and its agents in Pakistan.

Brigadier (R) Imtiaz & Confusion of Jang Group of Newspapers.


Jang Group of Newspapers, GEO TV, Salim Safi, Shaheen Sehbai, Rauf Klasra and Ansar Abbasi should be ashamed of themselves before filing a Cock and Bull Table Story of Secret Cell and State Funded APP Journalists because it was the Jang Group of Newspapers which statrted giving undue attention to Brigadier (R) Imtiaz since July 2009.

افسوس کہ جس فلم کا اتنا چرچا تھا وہ پہلے ہی شو میں فلاپ ہوگئی. اتنے بڑے سینما ھال میں ھو کا عالم ھے. اب تک صرف تیرہ شائقین سینما ھال میں داخل ہوئے ہیں. جو ھال میں داخل ہوئے وہ بمشکل چند منٹ گزار کر واپس چلا گئے. کئی شائقین تو ھال سے نکلنے والے لوگوں کے چہرے دیکھکر باہر سے ہی واپس لوٹ گئے. آج تو سارے بڑھکیں مارنے والے اور سیٹوں سے اٹھکر اٹھکر ڈانس کرنے والے بھی غائب ہیں. گیلری اور اپر کلاس تو ویسے ہی خالی پڑی ھے. ٹکٹ بیچنے والے ہاتھ پر ہاتھ دھرے بیٹھے ہیں اور شائقین کا راہ تک رہے ہیں. فلمساز ماتھے پر ہاتھ رکھے گہری سوچ میں ڈوبا ہوا ھے. جب ایک ہی کہانی پر مبنی فلم کو نام بدل بدل کر دکھایا جائے گا تو آخر شائقین کب تک اسے دیکھتے جائیں گے. لوگ بار بار وہی پرانے چہرے، شاہین صہبائی، ہارون رشید، صالح ظافر، روئیداد خان، شیخ رشید، شفقت محمود، عرفان صدیقی، حمید گل کو دیکھ دیکھکر اور سن سن کر تنگ آ چکے ہیں. وہی پرانے ڈائیلاگ فوج کیوں نہیں آ رہی، زرداری کیوں نہیں جا رہا، نواز شریف کیوں چھپ ھے وغیرہ وغیرہ. ڈبہ فلمیں زیادہ عرصۂ نہیں چلا کرتیں.

ڈائیریکٹر صاحب اگر مارکیٹ میں رہنا ھے تو کوئی نئی کہانی تلاش کریں. نئے چہرے ڈھونڈ کر لائیں، کچھ نئے ڈائیلاگ لکھیں، نئے گیت لکھوائیں، نئی دھنیں تیار کروائیں، کچھ آوٹ ڈور شوٹنگ، کچھ دلفریب مناظر، غرض وہ چیز لوگوں کو دکھائیں جو انکو ایک نئے پن کا احساس دلاتے. وہ کچھ نہ دکھائیں جو آپ پسند کرتے ہیں بلکہ وہ کچھ دکھائیں جو لوگ دیکھنا پسند کرتے ہیں ورنہ فلمساز آپکو زیادہ دیر برداشت نہیں کریں گے

There is a topic that ISI received huge funds from CIA and it was spent on construction of its new headquarters. But SM will not discuss it because it is about his MASTERS.

Have you heard that SM went to President House to see Zardari and Zardari refused to meet him and challenged him to speak against him as much he can. This person has no Ghairat. (source: pkpolitics)

Jang Group VS Dr. Shahid Masood & ARY ONE World.

One wonders that when Dr Shahid Masood knew everything bad about Asif Ali Zardari & Co then why did he join the PPP Cabinet, he also accepted the post of MD PTV and then again quit PTV and that too when his pay package was discussed [read the news below filed by the side kick of Ansar Abbasi i.e. Muhammad Ahmad Noorani in The News]in National Assembly and Senate he filed this story in The News International about Ansar Abbasi and rejoined GEO TV again.

It's really a request to the Chief Justice to take effective measures to stop these newspapers and channels from creating uncertain situations and working against the democractic government of Pakistan! They must be banned because of their wrong attitude towards carrying out their responsibilities in a good way.

CJP must take action not only against this but also against all the team of TJU who are showing wrong picture of PAKISTAN to the world...

Zardari did it - Meray Mutabiq Blocked???


Monday, November 23, 2009, Zil`Hajj 05, 1430 A.H

KARACHI: A ban has been imposed on airing of Geo News’ program ‘Meray Mutabiq’ from Dubai. According to sources, the high government officials of Pakistan exerting pressure on the Dubai government had the airing of the program stopped. Geo’s administration has said that this step of the government is tantamount to targeting the freedom of expression. It may be mentioned here that the senior analyst Dr. Shahid Masood was the anchor of ‘Meray Mutabiq’.

Death threats to Dr Shahid Masood? The only death threat currently looming over his head is the Article 6 of the constitution of Pakistan. In my view he should lodge an FIR against the Article 6 for posing death threat not only to him but also his other cronies namely Ansar Abbasi and Shaheen Sehbai. Those who conspire to subvert the constitution of the country deserve utmost legal punishment as per the law of the land.

Atlast leftist radicals could not bear the opponents' point of view. Where is the liberalism,tolerance and secular values which(according to lefts) give equal rights to every one. Its amazing how online extremists shouting and screaming ,"Get lost Shahid Masood". WHy? just because he does not agree with you? I dont agree wit Shahid either due to his conspiracies but heck, he has right to say and express his point of view. The so called seculars(read the left wing Talibans) become quite conservative when they face the heal themselves."Doosro ko Naseehat Khud ko Fazeehat". Wah mere secular intiha pasindo. You guys are not lesser pathetic than talibans battling in ground. Both of you posses extreme view;to silence the voices which displease us. Be thankful you guys are in Pakistan otherwise countries like USA would have put you in jail by applying unwanted censorship .

Media under attack — again Wednesday, November 25, 2009 Mazhar Abbas Ex-secretary general, PFUJ, http://www.thenews.com.pk/daily_detail.asp?id=210260

As a mark of protest against the move to ban Dr Shahid Masood's programme Meray Mutabiq, I withdraw my name from the list of journalists invited to accompany Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on his official visit to Germany and the UK from November 30 to December 4. It does not mean that I agree with Dr Masood's views, but it is the most undemocratic way and use of dictatorial tactics to silence someone's voice that has hurt me. I hope the prime minister will order an investigation into the matter and allow Dr Masood to express his views on air. I thank you, Mr Gilani, for inviting me, but after this action my conscience does not allow me to undertake that journey.

Dr Masood's language and views, at times, violate the generally accepted norms of journalism, but the answer is not to gag the press like General (r) Pervez Musharraf did. He too had approached the UAE government in November 2007 to dislodge Geo and ARY from Dubai.

Shahid Masood has always been an emotional person. I know him since he was in Sindh Medical College. He used to bring press releases of the Peoples Doctors Forum, PPP's medical wing, while I was working in an evening newspaper in Karachi. I met him first during a hunger strike by young medical doctors outside Karachi Press Club. He was a great admirer of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto. Later, I came to know that he went to London and for sometime also worked at the Pakistan Peoples Party Secretariat. During his stay in London, he started writing for an Urdu evening newspaper in Karachi before joining ARY. I may be mistaken, but he too was a 'jiyala'.

When he joined the channel, the electronic media was in its infancy but his programme "Views on News" started getting a large viewership. The Iraq war gave him the real boost. Dr Masood's language skills and oratory made him the most popular anchor in the early years of the electronic media in Pakistan. At the same time many started believing that his views had tilted from left to centre, and afterwards from centre to right. During this period he hardly ever cared about the established journalistic norms, but within years he stole the show and became the head of that news channel.

Later, he joined Geo and did a successful stint there. Also Geo TV never 'owned' his programme, meaning that he was free to speak his mind and the channel saved itself from any possible legal battle. I never liked his joining the state-controlled media organisation and he suffered a credibility loss when he became its managing director – a post he should have never accepted. He remained close to President Asif Ali Zardari for sometime and would not have left the job had Sherry Rehman not been the information minister. Through Meray Mutabiq-II, he made a comeback and to his luck President Zardari's poor decision of not restoring the deposed judges gave a real boost to his programme's ratings.

The naive move of President Zardari's camp to use the influence of the UAE authorities will only help Dr Shahid Masood, and the government will be the ultimate loser. As far as life threats to Dr Shahid Masood are concerned I think he should return to Pakistan and resume his programme from here. There are journalists in Pakistan who have bravely faced life threats. My only question, however, is that why recently Dr Masood and Shaheen Sehbai went to meet Asif Zardari as reported by Hamid Mir. All I want to say to Dr Masood is that "Life and death are in the hands of God. Let's face it, Doctor sahib."
