BILAWAL HOUSE WRITES PEMRA TO STOP MEDIA TRIAL OF PPP
Islamabad—Pakistan Peoples Party on Sunday wrote a letter to Pakistan Electronic Media Regularity Authority to stop media from maligning the Bilawal House.
PPP complained that the wild allegations were being hurled upon Bilawal House by local media on daily basis, for maligning the party.
“Bilawal House is not just a concrete structure of bricks and cement. It serves as spiritual power house to tens of thousands true Jiyalas”, the letter stated.
“It is devastating for the souls of true Jiyalas about banner headlines in the channels and the print media that someone in the Fishermen’s Cooperative Society was paying 70% of his ill-gotten money to Bilawal House. Another detained official is quoted with 25%. This is all done through the ‘sources’. Truly professional journalists understand that any story quoting ‘sources’ is some kind of propaganda. In media-literate societies such stories are rubbished.
In a country where dead bodies are recovered with torture marks on daily basis, anybody under duress can own any words put into his mouth’, the letter added.
The letter also mentioned that similar media trial of the leadership of Pakistan Peoples Party was conducted during the Nawaz Sharif period in 90’s.
“PPP like to request the TV channels to stop the media trial of Bilawal House and let the courts decide all the matters on the merits of rule of law”, the letter concluded.
