    ARY News VS Geo News


    ARY and Imran Khan VS Geo news/ Jang groups. So how did one of the leading news channel in Pakistan got itself in all this chaos? It all started when one of the most prominent Journalist Hamid Mir was attacked in Karachi. And Geo blamed an ISI officer Lt General Mohammad Zaheerul Islam was behind this attack on their journalist. This was one mistake they made which got them where they are right now. Taking advantage of this Mr. Imran Khan jumps in saying how could Geo do such a thing? How can they say such stuff about someone as respectable as Lt General Mohammad Zaheerul Islam?
    Actually Imran Kahn was having issues with Geo TV already because they were playing campaigns against him calling him Taliban Khan which might be true who knows Mr.Khan seems very keen toward the Jihadist groups. Imran Khan took the advantage of this weak moment and said he was boycotting Geo news/ Jang Groups. And apparently he has got some proof against Geos owner and journalists working there. He claims that the government is backing Geo which is true after all Geo news was the channel which announced the results before the decision was made.
    Now a hype is created everyone is going daft how could Geo make do all this? So everyone gets together and gets against Geo news. Now Its ARY and Imran Khan VS GEO News. A Qawwali played on Veena Malik’s wedding is also held against them my stance is not everything done by GEO wasn’t wrong yes it did make some mistakes but then everyone makes mistakes. If we look at the Qawali Issue the same Qawwali was also played on a morning show by ARY why isn’t anyone questioning that?
    ARY getting involved in this war is not right because I believe at some point media should unite instead of bring each other down the way Geo is being treated  today someday similar things with happen with another tv channel. All these campaigns would have been different if something might have happened to Hamid Mir everyone would have been siding GEO. ARY and GEO playing campaigns against each other is immature. In my opinion there is no news channel or journalist who is spotless. The lesson learnt here is every news channel and journalist should start taking responsibility of their acts instead of blaming eachother.
