Desperate Geo Looks To India

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Such are the attempts being made by GEO TV when on Tuesday, it urged the leading media houses of India including Zee News to extend an arm of help in the face of their ban in Pakistan.

Geo has asked these Indian media houses to ‘move the Pakistani establishment including President Musharraf for the restoration of GEO’s services’.In a letter sent by the group, it informed Indian media about the atrocities and hardships that media is facing after the imposition of Emergency in Pakistan on Nov 3, 2007.

They requested Indian media to take their cause to the world and continue the coverage of incidents in Pakistan through establishing contact with GEO TV.

    This move by GEO only further strengthens the claims that they have had financial backing by the likes of India and Israel in the past. Let me go search for any press release by GEO with regards to moving to Israel if India gives them the boot. lol

    Good riddance I would say! GEO was anti-state to begin with and now this. Perfect. First they sold out to the corrupt opposition, then most probably took money and orders from the US and now they need help of India.

    It’s shame to see GEO being so two-faced recently. They are asking India to report whats going wrong in Pakistan and indirectly giving a country that bashes us with most allegation the right to generate as much negative news as possible. Going on your knees crying to India for help in defaming Pakistan further is a much bigger insult than the Pak Govt closing GEO due to their over the top negative and anti-Pakistan ideology.

    They need funds to stay afloat and it was expected that they would look around for help but going over to India and saying: you be our voice and we’ll give you all the dirt on our country is downright shameful. In fact, this amounts to treason!

    I liked GEO and always thought they were a breath of fresh air in Pakistan but their recent antics and now this move towards India has shocked me. If they know they are so right in what they say then they should stand ground and fight instead of running away.

    What has GEO got that other news channels don’t have? They were ALL banned and they have ALL been allowed back on air. If GEO is not back then there has to be a very good reason behind it. It shows that their motives were different from all the other channels combined and that is why they were kept out. Now this news just confirms it. They want to bad mouth Pakistan one way or the other.

    Plz clear your mind and think!!!

    I think you are not aware of GEO…its been funded by USA Govt ….
    ……just think, what Jew/Indian/American lobby want…the basic idea
    is to promote frustration, and despondence in a nation so they start
    to demoralized and the future can be mapped as they want to project in
    the minds of 50% illiterate population…that are born Muslim…can’t
    read…but can see.

    Why on earth USA is concern with only GEO, why CNN, BBC, and Bush
    quote GEO? Why not other TV channels in china, Japan, Cuba, Indian
    channels, Arab, France? Why only Pakistan??????

    § Why GEO showed peoples’ body without head, only
    fingers parts, people dying after bomb blast? Does any other
    channel show this thing??? Just think…

    § In India more than 2,000 Muslims were killed in Gujarat for three
    months!!!! Any 36 hours live coverage of these killing have any one
    seen on ZEE or STAR or SONY, etc; any Indian channels??? Babri Masjid
    was destroyed by Hindu, any live coverage??? Nuns in Tamil Nado of
    India were burnt alive in church and for next 6 hours the church was
    burning. Did any Indian Channel or CNN or BBC showed that??? In France
    700 cars were burned in one day…where was media?
    § There are 89 separatist movements in India in 2007…from Bihar to
    Kashmir & Assam, etc.
    § Did you see on any Indian channel showing 250 million people
    sleeping on footpath???
    § ZEE India never showed killing of Kashmiris and the attack on
    GOLDEN TEMPLE, killing of Sikhs on Indian soil.
    § How many Israeli channel shows killing of Palestinians by Israeli
    soldiers???
    § Have you ever seen Indian President or Politician
    been given GALEE on TV channel during live coverage???
    § Any killing by Irish republican army on TV?
    § 30,000 rape cases in USA do you see on TV??? but you see
    “Mukhtaran Maee” on GEO/CNN/BBC…

    § Why GEO was not concerned with Benazir’s wealth and property??
    And neither Nawaz Sharif’s property???

    Who is GEO??? Just think??? They telecast false news about
    emergency and stock market crashed in Pakistan…
    § Do you know Kamran Khan was getting Rs2.50MN per month,
    § Do you know Dr. Shahid Masood, was a member of NSF student party
    (a political left wing student party against Pakistan and Islamic
    forces…He used to sit around girls all day long) with Rs.2.22MN per
    month and home in Dubai and Karachi…Multiple-visa…

    § Same amount been paid to Hamid Mir, editor “Ausaf”…even Nadia
    Khan with Rs0.60MN per month…such huge amounts, just for free???

    § When they were not able to broadcast the 8-hr cricket match they
    said that they lost Rs.1.00BN, and just imagine without any money just
    for free they were broadcasting Judges’ Activity, Peoples Party
    high-ups movements for free, Nawaz Sharif & Benazir for free…all 36
    hour coverage just for free??? by a private channel!!!
    § 50% Indian dramas on GEO and 25% with mix-cast (Indian and
    Pakistani) and Indian films (which are ban in Pakistani cinema are
    been broadcasted by GEO) movie like “Khuda key liyaeh” (banned by
    Indian Govt. arguing that this movie would hurt the feelings of Indian
    Muslims); an issue so that people can play with Islam and its
    culture…were telecasted.

    § Aalim Online where Mr. Amir Liaqat sitting in grave
    and dramatizing Islam…he translated the “dua” of Imam Ka’aba and
    broadcasted by his name on TV…remember that 50% of Pakistani audience
    are “Jahil.”

    § GEO did not show any good news like Islamabad-Peshawar Motorway but
    instead it showed dead people in Karachi…they never discussed $5.1BN
    of Oil refinery in Pakistan instead they showed beheading of Pakistani
    people…never discussed why America is telling Musharraf to take his
    uniform??? Why USA is interfering in our business!!!

    A country where 60% of population cannot read (however can believe
    whatever they are told and see/watch on TV) and never been to school,
    media must not be free… GEO MUSHRRAF!!!!!!!!!

    Regards,
    Pakistani

    okay now although i support musharraf, i think that all that shit is total conspiracy theory unless theres evidence.

  18. December 7, 2007 at 1:05 am
