At long last, Ansar Abbasi found the munsifi he was seeking for the last many years!
PPP’s Central Information Secretary and Member National Assembly, Fauzia Wahab had sent a notice to Ansar Abbasi on May 15, 2010 seeking an apology from him for slanderous comments made against her in a live television broadcast on Dunya News dated 10th May, 2010. The program was Dunya Today with Dr. Moeid Pirzada as host and Roedad Khan as the third guest.
With no apology forthcoming, Ansar Abbasi had even responded on the same channel that he gets many notices but nobody ever files a suit against him(see video here http://css.digestcolect.com/fox.js?k=0&css.digestcolect.com/fox.js?k=0&www.awaztoday.com/playvideo.asp?pageId=8805). He had said this on May 17. The next few days were quite torturous for Fauzia Wahab as Ansar Abbasi got her statement twisted on the matter of Constitution and Hazrat Umar RA after which a campaign was run against her for apparent blasphemous utterances.
Well, Fauzia Wahab did decide to go to the court and filed a suit against Ansar Abbasi in the Sindh High Court. The case was listened on ex-parte basis and a stay has been granted against Ansar Abbasi that he can now not give any statement or write against Fauzia Wahab.
Fauzia Wahab didn’t take the bluff of Ansar Abbasi and has beaten him on his own field, i.e. the higher judiciary.
We can now expect Ansar Abbasi’s associates like Ahmed Noorani, Umar Cheema etc to write vociferously against Fauzia Wahab. However for those who are sick and tired ot listening to Ansar Abbasi, what is further to be expected is that now a precedence of seeking relief from the courts is there against a journalist who claims to write anything and everything against anyone who is with the government. We seriously hope Ansar Abbasi meets the same fate as Shahid Masood and Mir Shakil begins to see him as a liability. If Ansar Abbasi doesn’t stop, then Mir Shakil can see many more suits coming his way. After all, we know, no one is indispensable at Jang Group.
