Karachi: Tolerance seemed to be have ended in the Pakistan’s society as we have always heard about politicians, lawyers, doctors and other people belonging to different walks of life fighting each other, but now there is another fight gearing up in the media between Najam Sethi (Geo News), Talat Hussain (Dawn News) and Mubashir Lucman (Dunya News).
The quarrel between Najam and Talat started when Talat Hussain in his program, News Night with Talat, accused that the word ‘Chirya’, used by Sethi for his source, was none other than Pakistani business tycoon Malik Riaz, main character of Arsalan Iftikhar scandal.
Talat further said that Malik Riaz himself has unveiled that he is the ‘chirya’ of Najam Sethi and after gathering information from him Sethi present it in his night show
Responding to Talat’s word, Najam Sethi in his program, Aapas ki Baat Najam Sethi K Sath, said that he (Talat) was speaking a lie about his association with Malik Riaz and he would sent a legal notice to the anchor for his irresponsible allegation.
“He (Talat Hussain) is a CIA agent as according to wiki-leaks document, two Pakistanis including Talat Hussain were working for Stratford, a spy agency working for CIA,” Sethi said.
Furthermore, furious Najam Sethi didn’t stop after lashing out at Talat Hussain and started talking about Mubashir Lucman.
Sethi said that earlier Lucman propagated a lie about him that he was a US national, which was totally a senseless allegation.
“I have not acquired US citizenship. I am a Pakistani and I would be a Pakistani,” the Geo News analyst claimed.
He further said that Lucman also alleged that his daughter was working for late Richard Halbrooke, US special envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The analyst further said that he had sent a legal notice to Mubashir Lucman on which the High Court directed Lucman to avoid putting false allegations on him.
