Minister (2k+ posts)
Mushtaq Minhas is being stupid. It seems as if he is sayin' everythin' outta jealousy.
Very true.... Mushtaq Minhas ki Jalan Ansar k saath bilkul numayan hai. Mustaq minhas jesa Chawal banda is program main hona hi nahi chahiyee thaa.. How come some dumb speaks like that infront of millions of people in a live program, I felt Kashif gave support to Mushtaq as well.
Strangest thing for me is that all of you commented on Minhas viz a viz his attitude, no one actually said anything about his point of view which was backed by Talat Hussain. Not sure why Talat's opinion has been ignored as well.
I have huge respect for Abbasi sb but why on earth someone has the right to name me, you, politicians or x.y.z. on Media in their absence but cannot point towards the Mafia within the Media or why there has not been any noticeable contribution from anyone against the tax issues of Jang or Ary?
Bhai, I assure you, in Pakistan, responsibility does not come naturally to people or institutes. That is why, personally speaking, I am in strong favour of checks and balances for everyone, including Media and Judiciary. I think Media and everyone should have utilized the best opportunity that they had during 18th amendment, to pressurize the political parties to make a system of over-sight for all the important and key appointments, instead of criticizing Judicial Comission and going to court to revoke it.
Ansari Abbasi satisfactorily tackled their objections. Ansar replied Talat's observations that Editors of newspapers have been writing their views in their personal capacities in past as well. So it is not as strange and surprising as Talat was tryna portrayin'. Initialy Talat said there is no example of this in past, then Ansar counted the names of Editors who have been doing this and no one objected.
Giving doubt of benefit to Kashif, I would say that this was an unintentionally planned effort against Ansar. I am also amazed on why Kashif invited two people Talat and Mushtaq from the same media group or to say from same school of thought.
I have to second Raja Bro on this. Ansar Abbasi, we see a lots of him now on TV channels, pretends to be an authority while discussing corruption of politicians and beaureaucracy Laikin Jab Ghar Ki Baat Hoti Hai Tou Gheedhar Ban Jata Hai.
Are we not aware of Jang Group Badmashi. He made billions from paper quota - Newspapers were allowed to bring tax free paper for printing newspapers while commercial import was charged at 65% imort duty so the newspapers used to import ten times their requirement and sell 90 percent of paper in the open market making billions. It was not only Jang but all the groups. Their newspaper business was in loss but they continued as they were making billions every year selling paper. NS tried to put a stop and there was big tussle between Jang and ML and ultimately Jang won and NS had to apologize.
Journalist collude with each other to safeguard interests of media owners but good thing is that is an awareness that they need to flush out the very bad ones like Nazir Naji. I feel Ansar Abbasi is not corrupt but when it comes to his Group owners, his lips are sealed, why? Raja Bro has rightly pointed out that he can say anything in the absence of politicians and others but when it comes to Media group, his lips are sealed because other party is not present. Kya Yeh Khulla Tazzad Nahi!!
Kia Pak Society ki sari kharabiyun ka theka Ansar Abbasi ne hi lay rakha hai?
Politicians ki corruption b wo dikhaye? Generals ki b wo dikhaye? Public Institutes ki b wo dikhaye? Aur ab aap logon ki DEMAND hai k Journaliston ki b wo dikhaye?
Khoob, bohat khoob. Acha insaaf hai.
Why dont this Mushtaq or Talat or Kashif show Journalists corruption. Why only Ansar take everything on his shoulders?
Ajeeb log hain aap log b
Jitna kaam wo ker raha hai, ussay appreciate kernay ki bajaye, ulta tanqeed kertay hain, aur do more do more kehtay rehtay hain.

You have the right to cite your opinion and I respect that. But I do not agree with it at all. Your comments give an impression that perhaps this effort was to discredit Abbasi sb. The corruption of Jang group is entirely a different matter than the credibility of Abbasi sb. I at least do not have any confusion about this. Moveover, I see it as a matter of principle that is acknolwedged by MAJORITY of the journalists and some ''outliars'' in Jang Group are negating it and I expect Abbasi sb to stand with the principle, not with his Group.
Abbasi sb is always on the front foot on all other talk shows. He always has a lot to talk about and is coming up with one example after other. No one ever could interrupt him in any other program. This was an exception and for me the reason is simiple, as he is on the wrong side on this issue.
One should not forget that all of these people are in the main stream media for ages now. They know the inner secrets that is why you could see that almost everyone had a unanimous point of view. I assure you the same stand would have been taken by other neutral and leading journalists like Nasim Zehra, Dr. Pirzada etc.
Jang people would say that our cases are pending in the courts. We do not accept this excuse from all the political parties, or Dasti sb but we let Media get away with it. I guess it was also a Jang group top gun who actually made a statement indicating their role in the selection of future PM or President after 07 elections. (sorry, if I am wrong).
Perhaps, the expectations from someone like Abbasi sb are too high and therefore if he does not meet them, his supporters like me are somewhat disappoined.
