It is never too late.
In view of the falling ratings of Geo TV’s once popular program Meray Mutabiq, particularly in view of its one-point agenda campaign against the democratic government in Pakistan, Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman, the CEO of Geo TV today dismissed Dr Shahid Masood from Geo TV.
Dr Shahid Masood has been stopped from conducting his talkshow Meray Mutabiq.
It may be noted that only yesterday Dr Masood was ridiculed in Pakistan’s parliament by the head of parliamentary committee on accountability (Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan) and a legal notice was served on him for recovery of Rs5.1 million which he had to pay as per his contract before leaving the PTV.
Although Dr Shahid Masood has disgracefully accepted a job offer at ARY digital, however, he has assured his new employers that he will refrain from his usual baseless defamatory propaganda against the democratic government. He has also assured that he will refrain from eulogizing acts of jihadi and sectarian terrorism in Pakistan and will stop being a Taliban apologist.
If history is any guide, this man’s assurances cannot be trusted.
Finally this excellent tweet by my friend Rabia: Imagine what a horrible feeling it is to find out that Dr. Shahid Masood is your new boss.
And this response, actually prayer, by Farhad: God help Kashif Abbasi!
