Transmission of Geo and ARY in cities of Sindh has been blocked. This reminds us of a similar incidence in Musharraf regime. But this time, it seems like that the action is taken by activists of MQM as hinted by Information Minister in Capital Talk. There are two points that we want to share here.
- If the transmission was blocked by activists of MQM without informing Central government, it highlights the state of coordination between coalition partners in Sindh. It also indicates the culture of intolerance and lack of democracy in the structure of MQM.
- If the transmission was blocked by using MQM activists and with the consensus of the Center, it is the hypocrisy, PPP is famous for.
We may not be in favor of media due to its current ‘dizzy’ mood, still independence of media should be supported, principally. Media should also take lesson from this situation and should report with sincerity.
