A man has moved Lahore’s high court and filed a petition against the popular drama serial ‘Ehd-e-Wafa’. Petitioner has claimed that the drama has negatively portrayed politicians and media personnel.

The show has represented the characters of a politician, media anchor, bureaucrat and army official, said the man, identified as Muhammad Zeeshan. “Four pillars of the state were displayed but the role of the army was shown instead of the judiciary,” he stated in the petition.

Zeeshan claimed that Ehd-e-Wafa could tarnish the image of politicians and media personnel. He said that the roles being portrayed in the drama painted a negative image of Pakistan internationally. He has also requested to halt the episodes of drama from airing.

The case has been taken up by the court.

In Ehd-e-Wafa, Shahzain (Osman Khalid Butt) is an established politician, Shariq (Wahaj Ali) is a successful journalist, Shehryar (Ahmed Ali Akbar) an assistant commissioner and Saad (Ahad Raza Mir) an army officer.

It is directed by Saife Hassan and written by Mustafa Afridi of Sang-e-Mar Mar and Aangan fame. It is produced by Momina Duraid in collaboration with the ISPR. It first aired on HUM TV on September 22.

    Infact it shows how honest journalist and administrative officer can change the system. It should insipre young Pakistani and guide them with the right path, who want to bring a change in the system.
    This case has no merit.

    Media has become a menace in Pakistan with all those fake news and bad reporting its about time we should start talking about these foul characters of our society and root them out once in for all. A strict law should be imposed of Media cells/ channels and on social media, any fake news should be dealt with a heavy fine and cancellation of expensive licences. There should be a watchdog in place.
