ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Federal Minister for Interior Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Thursday strongly reacted to incorrect reporting by Geo News about his remarks on the Federal Cabinet meeting held in Islamabad today.
In a statement, a spokesman of the interior ministry said that the reporting about remarks of the minister during the meeting was not accurate, and on part of Geo it was inappropriate and against the journalistic norms to link remarks with the minister which he had not expressed.
The spokesman said that the media channel should follow truth and report based on reality, adding that the Minister for Interior’s remarks during the Cabinet meeting were on record but it was quite different that had been reported.
The minister did not say any such word that the Channel was reporting, the spokesperson added.
Earlier on July 10, the Supreme Court of Pakistan also issued notices to Geo/Jang group Editor In-Chief Mir Shakeel-Ur-Rehman, Publisher Mir Javed-Ur-Rehman and reporter Ahmad Noorani over incorrect reporting, and sought response from them in seven days.
