The Irresponsible Media

Dated: 16-Feb-2016

Media in general is a propaganda machinery for spreading lies. On November 27, 2015 major media outlets broadcasted the news that Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri has threaten to commit suicide. What is sad and unprofessional is that no source of this news is mentioned. I am sure it was a lie because family of Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri denies any such threats issued by Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri. If he had truly issued this statement then his family members would have been highlighting this rather than denying it. As a matter of fact, Mumtaz Qadri, though ready to face any punishment that comes his ways because of his deed in the protection of the Blasphemy Law, I am sure he would never commit suicide because it is prohibited in Shariah, the Islamic law. Article 295C in Pakistan Panel Code declares death penalty for anyone who commits blasphemy by not respecting the most honorable personality Hazrat Muhammad (may peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him). The is not liked by west and media houses, who like to please western powers, never misses an opportunity to spread confusion and lies. The statement is alarming because in past people have been killed and then blamed of committing suicide, like Amir Cheema Shaheed was tortured to death when he was prisoner in a German jail.

Below we present snapshots of the so called “news”  clippings that were shamelessly made up to paint Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri a man of low character.

First to go in the list is the daily Dawn. I thought they made some attempt to verify the news before spreading it
