One of Pakistan’s popular TV show hosts, Hamid Mir, has reportedly been sacked from Geo News for his recent diatribe against the military.
It is reported that Mir’s prime time show at Geo News has been taken off air by the management without any official announcement. And it is now learnt that Mir has been shown the door for the above reasons.
TV anchor Asma Sherazi said in a tweet: If @HamidMirPAK is taken off air or banned from doing program on #GeoNews, more fingers will point towards the powerful establishment & the government while resounding the “words that he said”. Journalists of Pak stand with #HamidMir #Geo management must clarify its position.
To which, Hamid Mir responded: “Nothing new for me.I was banned twice in the past.Lost jobs twice.Survived assassination attempts but cannot stop raising voice for the rights given in the constitution.This time I m ready for any consequences and ready to go at any extent because they are threatening my family.”
