The Government’s Position On Hamid Mir’s Holiday Also Came Up. Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry also took a stand on the issue of sending senior journalist and anchorperson Hamid Mir on leave by Geo News.
The Government’s Position On Hamid Mir’s Holiday Also Came Up:
In his message on Twitter, Fawad Chaudhry, without naming Hamid Mir, said,
“Which broadcaster has to broadcast a program and what its team will be is decided by the institutions themselves. They are responsible for formulating their own policy under Article 19 of the Constitution.”
کس نشریاتی ادارے نے کیا پروگرام نشر کرنا ہے اوراس کی ٹیم کیا ہوگی یہ فیصلہ ادارے خود کرتے ہیں، ہمارا اداروں کے اندرونی فیصلوں سے کوئ تعلق نہیں تمام ادارے آئین کے آرٹیکل 19 کے تحت اپنی پالیسی بنانے کے خود ذمہ دار ہیں۔

It may be recalled that the management of Geo News has sent anchorperson Hamid Mir on leave indefinitely. Their program will be conducted by an anchor in Karachi.
On the other hand, Hamid Mir has said that there is nothing new in this. He has been banned twice in the past as well. He had to lose his job twice. He escaped the assassination attempt. Didn’t stop raising.
He added that at the moment he is ready for any kind of outcome and is ready to go to any extent because “they” are threatening my family.
