Islamabad: PTI condemned in the strongest words the Geo morning show, says a press statement issued on Thursday evening.
Central Information Secretary PTI, Shireen Mazari, today condemned in the strongest words the Geo morning show which sought to ridicule Islam and the Prophet(PBUH)’s family. This is absolutely unacceptable Mazari stated. It is also unconstitutional since our Constitution does not permit anything against Islam.
Mazari said this clearly shows yet again the Geo/Jang group’s agenda is dictated by foreign funding and anti-Islam and anti-Pakistan. It is time the government put a stop to this abuse of Islam and the Prophet (PBUH)’s family and hold the guilty accountable instead of simply sheltering behind PEMRA and the so-called Complaints body. Freedom of the press does not imply freedom to abuse Islam and the sentiments of Muslims not only in Pakistan but across the world.
