Communication gives ground to debate and discussion and debates are the gateway to increase communication and in harmony. However, it would not work in Pakistan because lack of tolerance makes people unable to listen to something different due to which force and power are used in a negative way as in the case of Mubashir Lucman and Fawad Chaudhry.
Well-known TV anchorperson, Mubashir Lucman, filed a complaint against the Federal Minister of Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry, in Model Town police station.
According to the filed complaint, the anchorperson was tortured. He was pushed out of the hall in the event of the wedding of son of Punjab Minister, Mohsin Leghari, on the orders of the federal minister by guards.
Mr. Lucman’s complaint said that the journalist was harassed by Mr. Chaudhry; therefore, he requested the police to solve the case on legal grounds. Police confirmed the complaint on media.
As per reports, the personality was slapped by politicians but the matter between the two public figures was resolved by Jehangir Tareen and Ishaq Khakwani, PTI or Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s workmen.
The fight was started some weeks before when TV presenter invited a journalist on YouTube show who compared Science and Technology’s federal department’s head with country’s Tik-Tok star, Hareem Shah who is known for videos she shot with Fayyaz Chohan, Sheikh Rasheed, and a video that she made in Ministry of Foreign Affairs that raised different controversies on which she said that she is member of PTI.
Minister; however, expressed on Twitter that he is informed about the comparison by posting a tweet in which he posts some negative comments about the journalistic qualities of Mr. Lucman. The politicians commented about his choice of words and remarks.
Fawad Chaudhry and Mubashir Lucman have known personalities. Their fame gives them a responsibility to spread peace and literacy by doing arguments and discussions in an educated way. Such comparisons from the side of TV presenters and use of force from the side of powerful personalities are making society insecure as it shows that people do not have the right to speak against the government. TV presenters are wrong but torture and harassment made the matter worse. It now shows that PTI is turning Pakistan from a so-called democratic country into a strict and corroding Authoritarian rule.
مبشر لقمان جیسے لوگوں کا صحافت سے کوئ تعلق نہیں یہ وہ طوائفیں ہیں جوصحافت میں گھس گئ ہیں، ایسے صحافتی دلالوں کو بے نقاب کرنا سب کا فرض ہے۔ https://t.co/5YQhc8eQMK
