Supreme Court orders ban on Dr. Shahid Masood’s TV program for three months

March 20, 2018

ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court banned Dr. Shahid Masood for three months after the television anchorperson tendered an unconditional apology as his allegations regarding the murderer of seven-year-old Zainab were proved wrong.

“It seems Dr. Shahid Masood does not realize the importance of the elder’s advice as he ridiculed my court officer on the second (after the hearing),” said Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar while hearing a case regarding the TV anchorperson’s ‘revelations’ about Zainab’s murderer.

Shahid regretted his mistake with an unconditional apology. CJ Nisar said, “If you admit your mistake, then, we should ban your television program for three months.”

In earlier hearing on March 10, Dr. Shahid said that the allegations he leveled regarding Zainab murder case were ’emotional dialogues’.

“Being a father, I got emotional and made such statements,” he said in the reply filed through his counsel in the case against him.

    i wish my grand kids will long enough to see this spineless supreme court taking any real action against the powerful and corrupt elite in this country. people like rana sanaullah directly involved in child abuse scandals are roaming around, NS and his daughter are roaming around cussing judiciary all the time but they dont have the stomach to punish them. law is only for the common people.
    dr shahid should be punished for speaking up against corrupt elite. he should take bribes like hamid mir and spend a comforable life.

    I think it is ridiculus and shocking for th Sc to punish dr shahid masood for speaking the truth ,
    I stead of getting down to the truth they ban hin fof no reason. Why dont they punish the real culprits . We really miss Dr shahid masood because he is the only one who ever speaks the truth and is gully innocent. We all should get togather and make a petition to try and get Dr Shahid Masood back on air.

    I think we should all make a petition to get Dr Shahid madood back on air. The Sc has punished the wrong gut for the wrong reason. The poor children were raped and murdered instead of getting down to the bottom of the actual case and who are the powerful people behind this, they go and ban an innocent and simple person who most of the common people watch because he is the only one who speaks the truth. I wish the Sc judge thinks again.
