Only last week, a secret meeting took place between the owner and CEO of the Jang Group (Geo TV / The News / Jang / Awam) Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman and some important religious scholars who were escorted by none other than a serving Colonel of the ISI.
This was a high level delegation of Sipah-e-Sahaba (under the leadership of Mufti Muhammad Naeem, Mufti Muhammad Hanif Jallandhari and Mufti Rafi Usmani) who appreciated Geo TV and Jang Group for it services to Islam and ‘Islamic forces’ in Pakistan.
The terrorist mullahs assured Mir Shakil-ur-Rehman of their full support to Geo TV and Jang Group of Newspapers. In return, Mir Shakil-ur-Rehman assured them that their strategic and operational interests will be safeguarded by Geo TV / Jang / The News.
Less than a week after that meeting, here is the latest revelation (scoop/ breaking news) by Geo TV / The News / Jang.
In March 2010, a notorious terrorist, Hafiz Abdullah of Choti Zerin, D.G.Khan, who was activist of a local chapter of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi / Sipah-e-Sahaba, killed a Shia man and critically injured two more men (a Shia and a Barelvi). The furious crowd, mostly comprising Shias and Sunnis of the local town, then in riot fury took the murderer to the task (of course illegally) and provided urgent justice to him by killing him. (This mob action can be understood in view of the fact that Justice Sharif and Justice Iftikhar courts are hell bent on protecting and releasing the arrested terrorists of the Taliban and Sipah-e-Sahaba).
Geo TV hero or a sectarian terrorist?
It may be noted that in March 2010, the same newspaper, The News had reported that “Hafiz Abdullah, the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP) district secretary general, killed local leader Naseem Abbas, injured his father Haji Ghulam Rasool and Matloob Hussain, a Post Office official, with a dagger and firing.”
Previously the same terrorist, Mullah Abdullah terrorist, was the mastermind of a terrorist attack on a Shia majlis in Pakistan in February 2009 killing more than 40 persons.
Geo TV’s “Support Sipah-e-Sahaba Campaign”
Almost 6 months after the killing of the terrorist mullah, Geo TV / Jang Group has started projecting that criminal (Abdullah Munafiq) as a hero, as an aggrieved party. Quite the opposite. Abdullah Munafiq was a terrorist of Sipah-e-Sahaba / Taliban / Lahskar-e-Jhangvi who was a notorious murderer. Instead of supporting and projecting terrorist, Geo TV must think about ways to protect and support those Shias, Barelvis, Ahmadis, Christians etc who have been mercilessly killed by terrorists of Taliban and Sipah-e-Sahaba.
Or should we expect that, soon, Geo TV and Jang will be running another video, this time in support of notorious murderer Riaz Basra, killer of hundreds of Shias and Barelvis.
By aligning itself with Sipah-e-Sahaba and Taliban, Geo TV and Jang Group is taking a very dangerous path. It it the part of sectarian and jihadi terrorists. Mir Shakil and his team at Geo TV, Jang, The News must reconsider their strategy and priorities.
