We always see the Journalists giving lectures on morality, ethics and pretending to be advocates of rule of law. These journalists will always highlight the wrongdoings of anyone else in the society, but when it comes to their own community, they unite and act as mafia.

One typical example is the criminal silence across the board by all Pakistani Journalists on Nazir Naji’s use of abusive language against another junior journlaist. Isn’t it shameful for those preists cum journalists who could not gather moral courage to utter a single word to condemn this disgusting behaviour of a disgusting fellow journalist?

Many of these journalists have received favours from other corrupts and criminals of society, acting as partners in their crimes. Not all journalists are corrupt but at least one crime has been committed by all the journalists, and that is the Silence to cover crimes of their fellows.

PKPolitics will make an effort to expose such black sheep to set a good example of Citizen Journalism and to bring out the hidden truth.

This is part-1 of a series of stories exposing scams and corruption scandals of some Pakistani Journalists. It is about a journalist who can be easily called the Al Capone of Pakistani journalism, Mohammad Malick. Some details with documentary evidences are attached on this page.

Details of his plot scams and benefits from different Governments are as follows:

1- Advertising Agency and Production House: (Media Magic and Pink Productions)
2- ESP Initiatives (his recreational company that was given 25 acres land in Islamabad)
3- Marketing Head of PTV with Rs 0.5 million per month salary under Musharraf Regime
4- Was allotted a Category 1 plot of 500 square yards in Islamabad
5- Malick Zong

Details:

1- Advertising Agency and Production House:

a- According to official website of Board of Investment (BOI), Media Magic is registered in the name of “Malik Muhammad Malick”. Muhammad Malick used to run his advertising business while being a journalist. He was among defaulters of PTV but no one could dare to ask him any question because of his journalistic influence. According to official documents [3.3MB] presented by the PTV before a subcommittee of Senate Standing Committee on Information Broadcasting, Media Magic defaulted PTV with an amount of Rs 15.311 million (5.343 + 5.615 + 4.353 = 15.311).

Mohammad Malick - Board of Investment

b- The other company Pink Production is basically registered in the name of Anila Malick, wife of Muhammad Malick. However, the business of this company was also controlled by Muhammad Malick according to almost everyone in PTV. According to same document [3.3MB] , Pink Production also defaults PTV with an amount of Rs 15.381 million ( 10.733 + 4.648 = 15.381 ).

2- ESP Initiatives (his recreational company that was given 25 acres land in Islamabad)

Musharraf’s misrule of the last 9 years also saw a major development project on the land around the Rawal Dam, Islamabad as a Public Recreational Park.

The land allocated for the project was substantial and was located in an area with astronomical property prices. In off the record conversations, honest and upstanding CDA officials revealed that the whole project was a huge scam meant to grab this piece of real estate for the land mafia. Without the phony Public Park project, it would have been impossible for the land mafia of Islamabad to get their hands on this real estate because the original Islamabad Master Plan explicitly forbade its use for residential developments. According to reliable sources within the CDA, the allotments of portions of this land were made only to line the pockets of several high level power brokers within the Musharraf regime.

The unnamed CDA sources further reveal that the main beneficiary of this massive fraud was Muhammad Malick who got 25 acres of this land. In comparison, the remaining 9 parties got 3 to 9 acres in the same area. The allotment process of the land was completely fraudulent and without due process. Muhammad Malick dealt with different officials within the CDA using his influence. He used multiple channels of authority to get the 25 acres allotted to him by hook or by crook. Malick played his cards beautifully and one of his most ingenious maneuvers was to show himself as the sole proprietor/owner of a new company “Esp Initiatives”. This shell company had no documented experience in recreational real estate development while the regulations in the allotment process called for a company with extensive international experience in the field.

The CDA sources disclosed that the estimated earning potential of this piece of real estate was around Rs.62.5 million (Rs.6.25 Crore) while it was allotted to Muhammad Malick for the paltry sum of Rs.0.3 million (Rs.3 Lakhs) per annum. According to the CDA sources, this allotment to Muhammad Malick was the largest single land allotment to an individual in Pakistani history looking at land prices.

The lease agreement of this land between Muhammad Malick and CDA is attached in this document [3.3MB].

3- Marketing Head of PTV with Rs 0.5 million per month salary under Musharraf Regime

Malick joined PTV as its marketing head in 2007. His monthly package there was about Rs 500,000. He was at the same time running his own business of advertising agencies and become a defaulter of PTV in this regard as mentioned above.

4- Was alloted a Category 1 plot of 500 square yards in Islamabad

During all this process, yet another wheeling and dealing was going on between CDA and FGEHF which was facilitated by non other than Muhammad Malick. This was meant to create some plots in luxurious sector I-8 of Islamabad where in fact no plots were available. Plots in these luxurious sectors, where price of a Category-1 plot measuring 500 square yards now approaches to Rs 30 to Rs 40 million, are created by finishing green belts and playgrounds. However, in this classic case some six plots were created by shifting six vacant plots of CDA official’s quota to FGEHF. Present CDA officers did so because the experience of recent years has shown that by the time CDA officials qualify for the plots after acquiring relevant experience they are transferred from CDA. According to this deal, which was finalized with mediation of Muhammad Malick, CDA officials and all the six members were given the offer of allotment of one plot each in far-flung sector G-14 so in return they were to create and give six plots to FGEHF. This story is available on The News Website with the heading “Complicated issue of plot allotments in Islamabad!”.

One of these plots in I-8 was also allotted to Muhammad Malick in return of his services during the deal. As everyone in CDA and all concerned government departments knew about this allotment to Muhammad Malick, which was made in complete violation of rules, DG-FGEHF had also verified this allotment on record. However, DG-FGEHF was left with no option but to shift this I-8 plot of Muhammad Malick in G-14 , as those journalists who were allotted plots in G-14 started compelling the whole government machinery to transfer their plots in I-8 as well.

Allottment of plot to Malick was completely illegal. He never applied for the plot. His application number on his allotment letter is given as “Zero”. While talking to the @admin of PKPolitics, he claimed that he had applied in 2004, but in fact he hadn’t applied and documents didn’t show his name even in the waiting seniority list which was prepared in 2005 after allotment of plots to 168 journalists under a devised and publicized policy. His application was later kept in the record in connivance of information ministry officials. His allotment was made secretly. He didn’t deserve a category-1 plot. No allotments could be made in sector I-8. Even in sector G-14 his allotment was illegal by all means made in complete violation of rules and regulations and secretly. It was made purely on the basis of his influence as being a journalist . His allotment letter is attached [1.5MB].

5- Malick Zong

Beside all this CDA officials say that after launching of a cellular company Zong last year, it was Muhammad Malick, who controlled all affairs of this company which were connected with CDA. He managed to get NOCs for the Zong towers erected in capital territory. Malik is known circles of CDA as Malick Zong.

    Thank you Admin PKpolitics for opening debate on this very sensitive topic

    So long as all these corrupt journalists keep supporting Bhutto family, they all can get away.
    The most shocking example of Journalistic Corruption is when last month in London, Zardari gave a bouquet of flowers to Altaf Hussain and touched his feet and apologised from Him for calling MQM being the dirty baby of Gen Zia. I am surprised the even journalists of the level of Hamid Mir, Dr Shahid Masood, Talat Hussain, Javed Chaudhry did not have the courage to question PPP and I would call it a criminal silence. What I also heard that in the same meeting Altaf Hussain told Zardari, ‘You are dirty NRO baby of Gen Musharraf ‘. NO journalist have really highlighted that Gen Musharraf has bought a new house in the Edgware Area of London.
    Don’t blame people like Nazir Naji, Athar Abbas, Najam Sethi. Arshaad Ahmed Haqqani – these all are on the pay-roll of Peoples Party.
    Only 6 weeks ago all these paid (mentioned above) Journalists were saying that the Talibans can capture Islamabad any time and Army Action must start immediatel, and nearly 7 weeks on the Army has not been able to get hold in Swat. The level of Corruption is very very very high in PPP supporting Journalists.

  2. CommonSense says:

    Nazir Naji is a pig and we should all flood Jang Group with emails to fire him. Same with this new Zardari of journalists M Malick. Thank you PKPOLITICS for exposing these thugs and black mailers in the cloak of journalism.

  3. supercreature says:

    I wait for some people coming out of their hidings to defend Mallick as well … like they did in case of Nazir Naji … I remember one fellow even abused me here as well in his “mother tongue”, definding Naji and trying to prove the recording is fake ….although it was proven on media by many sources as true recording.
    @CommonSense
    I agree with you people who have p”gs genes have no shame like Naji and his defenders

    You have been crying about this incident for weeks now, and really we are sick of this repeated story plzzzz stop quoting this story again and again !

  5. saname says:

    Thanks for staring this thread. I always had an opinion that the journalist community should also be held accountable as well. Why these journalists can blast any politician just for a single sentence said in the past and blackmail or downgrade them. These are the terrorists in their own way. they make and break the govts. I am not talking here about all the journalists. I respect many new faces and especially the mainstream anchors, who I believe ( i hope i am right ) are sincere and corruption free. I hate the old babas in this field who have been ruling the print media ( unlike electronic media ) for decades. I am so glad that the people have started questioning them as well. The journalists want the politicians and generals to be transparent and sincere but at the same time dont apply these golden rules when it comes to their own community. I cant believe so many of our columnists and editors change the tone of their columns and editorials so easily. Just follow some of these guys and read the columns written by some of these over last 2 years. You will be surprised to know that the same guy has taken 180 degree turn. I wish someone talks about other big wigs in the field like Najam sethi, shami, zia shahid, abbas athar, asadullah ghalib, ata ul haq qasmi. luqman, and many others. I may be wrong about some of these guys. Apologies if I am wrong, but I have a feeling that majority of these and many others I dont remember now, are corrupt to the core.
    Everyone needs to be accountable. We need to scrutinize judges, generals, politicians, journalists, bureaucrats, until we find purists. Its slow and steady but we are on the track now. I can understand that the ideal situation never exists but still the things can get better than how they are right now.

    Long live Pakistan, Long live hard working sincere and beautiful common people of Pakistan.

    IT IS MERELY TO ADD MY THANKS TO OTHER PEOPLE’S. THANK YOU, PKPOLITICS.

    My favourite journalist is Haroon-ur-Rasheed. I hope he is above board. In the English press, I admire Ardashir Cowasjee though I do not always agree with him. I hope he is safe, too.

    By the way, Ansar Abbasi and Dr Shahid Masood did protest about the abuse of privileges enjoyed by journalists. Also, Irfan Siddiqui did write about Busharraf’s purchase of a property in London’s Edgware Road.

  7. azeem1 says:

    ansar abbasi did protest after returning his own plot, meaning he is nau momin. shahid masood is I think a category above. he would not indulge in a small business.

    irfan siddqi is selective in criticism. adha such is even worse.

  8. Shah30 says:

    Interestingly, Mr. Tahir Khan of Inter Flow owes more than 60 million rupees to PTV. This person is the most corrupt person in the mass communication sector. He always starts his conversation with ” Ye Sub Tumhara Karam he Aaqa ke baat ab tuk bani hoi he”

    The owner of Tv One, i wonder Mr. Luqman of TV One ever had guts to expose his master in any of his show.

    This guy is also defaulter to various banks and had obtained financial benefits during different regime.

    I dont know to which “AAQA” he praises in his statements, obviously not the “AAQA” of poor Pakistani people.

  9. ahmed says:

    one thing i cant under is why journalists, judges, gov officials and army are alloted plots? They have choosed this profession by their choice, why they are awared with plotts? what good all these people of done for the nation that they are “allotted” plots? Who ever claims a plot for nothing should be ashamed, they dont deserve the salaries they get leave alone plot allotment…shame of all these.

  10. SnrCtzn says:

    1. The whole ‘state of Denmark’ was once mired/bogged down in the most & highest form corruption/dirty wheeling s & dealings & what not.
    2. According to one of William Shakespeare’s popular play ‘Hamlet’ Marcellus says this quote about Denmark:-
    So he is asking ‘Is there a foul smell, or what foul actions are happening’ in Denmark? ………..!
    3. Any comparisons………?

  11. s t says:

    every body in our country is abusing the system, God help us. When some thing come to the surface we start comparing each others nasty deeds. The same is with these so called pseudo intellectuals, they are all the same, elders think they are have 40-50 years experience so not to be mentioned , let alone to be questioned; they have become HOLY COWS. while the youngsters or the juniors think they are smart enough not to be caught and can hide under the Umbrella of their Organizations Integrity.

  12. sefasne says:

    “ISS HAMMAM MEIN SAB NANGEY HEIN”. i personally know a prominent Columnist and an Anchor of a current affairs show on a TV channel, who nowadays writes against Musharraf. But while Musharraf was in still in office and was interviewed by this journalist. At the end of the meeting, he was asked by Musharraf, just as a courtesy if he could do something for the Journalist. And the Journalist/Anchor requested for help in getting MEMBERSHIP TO THE ISLAMABAD CLUB. Musharraf duly obliged and this man stopped writing against Musharraf until re-emergence of Zardari and Sharifs. This journalist belongs to same district in Pakistan and comes from same clan as I am. But I don’t wish to name him. Nowadays he is portraying himself Holier than Thou.

  13. brig tm says:

    It takes a lot of guts to expose these pigs,i salute the @admin for his courage and sheer exellence in getting all the proofs against this scum (malick).I sincerely believe that mr mustafa should send all these proofs to CJ and ask for a suo moto action on this blatant corruption.
    Now these people will come after mr mustafa like a pack of dogs and he should be carefull and he has all our support in this matter.Again my advice would be to ask CJ IMC to take action on these people of the gutter.Khanzir naji is not even worth writing about and jang group is a blackmailer and always shelters these kind of people so dont bother sending them the mails as they continue to give ashirwad to khanzir najis of this world..

  14. Aseer says:

    sefasne!

    Are personal loyalties more important than loyalty to Pakistan? Please name the culprit.

    Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry Sahib! You have the most difficult, the most stressful job in the whole of Pakistan. Can you clean out the filthy, stinking mess that is our Pakistan today!

  15. pakistanimunda says:

    Corruption is plaguing the whole country. I am utterly disappointed at Malick’s actions… All these years I considered him as a clean slated journalist. Government should confiscate land from these corrupt journalists and stop this menace of plot culture in our society. I have come to the conclusion, the more previliged you are in Pakistan the more corrupt you become. Unfortunately. Greed is what is eating the whole society.

  16. JavedKhan says:

    @Cogito-E-S………..& @Supercreature

    I fully endorse the view point of Saeed Afzal above that for nearly 35 years, yes 35 years, repeat for 35 years Benazir and PPP were accusing MQM being a creation of Gen Zia. She throughout her life blamed MQM for everything. Benazir accused JI for helping Mujahideen in Afghan war, lately she was not a fan of Imran Khan either, and she also side-lined Aitezaz Hasan for taking side of Chief Justice Iftikhar. Benazir was the one who spread the corruption at every level and bomb culture in our Country. Benazir was the biggest rumourmonger of all times.

    And when she wanted to return to Karachi on 18 Oct 2006, she only managed after apologising from Altaf Hussain. I am not a supporter of Altaf Hussain, because there are 92 murder cases registered against him and he also killed Hakeem Saeed for a ranson of 1 crore and he has killed Army Major. But the thing is PPP’s will sell their mothers just to get into power whether they have to settle with MQM or Maulana Diesel.

    Just read what @supercreature has said above that people will soon come out of hiding in support of this idiot M Malik and you didn’t waste too long to come out in the support of M Malik. Although your comment is directed at Saeed Afzal but as someone just said above that ‘KHAMOSHI NEEM RAZA HAI ‘ so if you have not said anything about M Malik then you have just wasted your time and energy because it is was these bloody journalists who did not gave the extensive coverage of Zardari – Altaf flower exchanging.

    This is what precisely we are discussing here because during that ceremony only PTV and Dunya TV (of Najam Sethi) were allowed to film that ceremony. Journalists were told that their reporting will be scrutinized and that scene was broadcasted only once where Zardari touches the feet of Altaf Hussain.

    All journalists were briefed what to broadcast and recently there have been some frauds in shipping transactions and millions have been swindled in Scraping an old Ship near Dubai (brought to Gwadar) for a very high value and some MQM and PPP ministers are involved. When this was leaked out Zardari gave instructions that this should not be aired and thats why bloody Kamran Khan never discussed this in his show ‘Aaj Kamran Khan ke sath’.
    For 35 years Benazir and PPP have been fooling the nation about MQM and JI and when it is to their advantage they (or You) can kill Hakeem Saeed, Azeem Tariq, Murtaza Bhutto( and Benazir) and sign NRO. All I can say well done you bloody journalists.

    Good topic started – Admin PK

  17. justice says:

    @ ahmed
    PLOTS
    i believe for the first time it was after 65 war that for those army officers who were killed during the war,ayub khan recommended one residential plot to their families.It was fair i believe to support the families of the the officers who gave their lives for the country.

    But the KING of PLOT Politics was NAWAZ SHARIF.He as the CM of Punjab had distributed high valued plots like he was the king.Then it became a tradition to pay in the form of plots which can easily be converted to US dollars

  18. bechari-awam says:

    Welcome back GM (or you were always here anyway 😉 )
    Its a real shame that a guy who proclaims, “kahnay mein kiya harj hay” is himself involved in this sh!t for so long. I guess he should add a sentence to his promo, “aur wohi corrupt journalist, wohi plottoan ka khail…”. This should be investigated to it’s fullest. Does Ansar Abbasi has the guts to confront his newspaper editor or will he sit down and wait for other journalists to break this story in the press.

  19. Paf123 says:

    I think it is a good effort to bring these issues out. Media should be accountable and should form a self regulatory authority for these types of issues. Why not!!
    Another angle of this issue is — journalist and media getting money/favors from the foreign governments. There have been reports about journalists getting money from Gulf states especially Saudi Arabia for pushing their agenda. I believe that is as much criminal as getting favor from Government of Pakistan. Probably worst…….

  20. bumpy_ride says:

    Guys, this is not even the tip of the iceberg. I wish i could share the stories well known in the journalist community. However, I will give you one small bit of information that could open your minds to the scale of institutionalized corruption in the print media.

    One of my cousin joined Khabrain a few years back. He asked for the salary package. In his words, his question led to anguished and shocked faces. He was told that as a journalist, he was not only to earn for himself but for the newspaper as well and no body care how he is to achieve the monthly target.

  21. rsjjrsjj says:

    salam to everyone.

    I guess the right thing to do is send an email or letter to these people or their employers and letting them know that we are going to bycot and not buy their product/newpaper or watch their channel untill they clear the whole issue.

    In Nazir Naji’s case i did sent an email to Jang askig them to stop publishing his column, but as usual no repsonse.

    Does anyone know the email address for Nazir Naji and Malick and their phone numbers, so we all can register our protest. I am sure everyone will agree that while we register our protest we need to be civilised and not do or say things which these people did.

  22. Opportunity says:

    Just curious, how do you know all of this ?

  23. freemason says:

    Shouldn’t we as citizens also launch a protest with the institutions which employ and protect such corrupt people. We should flood the mail boxes of Geo/Jang group and register our protest with them, boycott their products, stop putting their shows online, urge different advertising companies not to do business with them etc. Just venting our frustration on forums like these makes no difference to these vultures.

  24. bhola says:

    would be a good idea to give email, phone numbers of the employers whenever someone is exposed like that so that we can register our protest. I personally would like to have emails and phone numbers of the person concerned but I am not sure if its possible for pkpolitics for legal reasons.

  25. SherryShamsi says:

    Big money comes with big corruption always. You can see this in Army, Judiciary, & in Journalism too. & they hardly/never criticise their henchmen, always criticising politicians, because that’s easy &traditional, by the way that happens in every country even in UK, bankers got millions, but people are worry bout £10 spent on adult movie by MPs husband.

    This is really appreciating that Admin is starting this discussion. Now journalist don’t require to become Mushahid Hussain (politician) to earn money, they can remain journalist, keep criticising politicians, raising non issues &get rich. People must know about this ‘media clergy’ too. These ‘dabba peers(fake saints)’ are effecting people’s sense of analysis, & keeping them in dark from real issues. If Pakistan won’t get out of their poison now, it won’t be out ever.

  26. squreshi says:

    I am not surprised to read and see this corruption of Malick. Dear countrymen, i know very famous and sacred journalists, who write columns and air tv shows, involved in corruption. i don’t name them as i don’t have documentary evidence against them. 95 % of them are corrupt. this issue has never been highlighted by famous anchors like talat, shahid masood, hamid mir, kamran khan and many others. they call politicians on TV and disgrace them. why don’t they call brother journalists and expose them? the answer is very simple ” Iss Hamam mein saray hi nangay hain”. But i appreciate Pkpolitics for exposing this corruption.

  27. QAMAR RAZA says:

    Dear all, please act in such a way, and prepare ordinary people arround you by telling them about this whole mess till people come out with their sleepers in their hands and enter Islamabad.

    These polticians and other symbols like journalists tell nothing but a lie

    they do nothing but anything which helps them make money

    they are not sincere with Pakistan but ………..

    They are happy with the symbol of Taliban as it helps them make money and kill the poor people (Like Zardari is asking for more with open dirty mouth, MQM is killing Pakistanis themselves and putting it in Taliban’s acount

    They talk about Sidhies, Punjabees, Balochis, Pushtoons but not about Pakistan nto about the common thing that we are muslims

    Anyway we should not expect any good from this lot, prepare yourself and the people for the ultimate solution

  28. agrana75 says:

    Well, lets see how many other big names are exposed. ..
    But the thing is, who will take the action against such corruption? Every one will forget soon just like Nazir Naji abuses.After few days of his abuses scandal, Hamid Mir invited him in his programme to condemn Taliban and didnt say anything against Nazir Nazi third class attitutde.

  29. BA says:

    First of all I am glad that Admin didn’t use his/her moderation scissors to cut my comment. That is good.

    By the way, without any wrong doing ( except today, which I might say, blasphemy) my name has always remained in the ‘bad guys’ list compiled by PKPolitics.

    I always put forward my arguments with fair analysis and reasoning but whenever I crossed the threshold of Raiwind, my comments always got no-approval. This is not how we carry and promote the intellectual debates.

    @bechari-awam:
    why don’t you cast the first stone?”

    Here are a few pebbles:

    1: Why we always see character assassination campaigns on PKPolitics only against people who sympathize with PPP?

    2: Is everybody across the political/journalistic spectrum sacred except PPP and its followers? If not, then why mud-slinging is the destiny of only pro-government people here on our beloved forum?

    3: Medical Dr Shahid Masood, recommended pkpolitics.com in one of his articles ( Jang), what he has to do with this forum? I never had any doubt about that opportunist guy. Since he was kicked off from PTV, he is spreading venom against PPP government and generating disappointment among the nation. What is the synchronization between this Dr and PkPolitics?

    4: Who is the sponsor of PKPolitics? I am sure running expense of a web site like this cannot be handled by paid subscription -btw- I am a paid subscriber.

    5: Why we don’t know the name of the person who runs this forum, everywhere else a public forum knows the proprietors but here we don’t know except “Dear Admin”, why?

    If somebody could please shed light on these issues, then our debate can go on.

  30. Aseer says:

    BA!

    You have a point. It would be nice if the owners of this website would disclose their names. Possibly, they hide their identities to protect themselves. I don’t know. Perhaps they should tell us why.

    We can speculate though.

    Since you appear to have reasonable grounds for the existence of a link between Dr Shahid Masood and pkpolitics.com administration, it is up to those gentlemen/ladies to confirm or deny it.

    Finally, would you clarify your own background, please?

    I Think When Taliban were destroying the TV, they were 100% correct instead of watching and listning these crooks why don’t we invest our time on something benificial to us. These people are trader (Traiters) and salling their product and we are happily buying the garbage. I stop watching TV long time ago and trust me I have lot of time for my family, myself, and I start correcting my weakness which I never think of before. Let start changing our life and stop listning these liers, have fun with your love one spend time with your neighbours and relatives.

    Thank you Admin Bhai.

    you are the best. when it comes to exposing their own type, all journalists are quiet. Javed Choudhary, Nusrat Javed, Mushtaq Minhas, Hamid mir, Talat Hussain dont leave any stone unturned when it comes to politicians, judges or generals ( Quite rightly so), but they wont’ say a single word about their own types.

    What a hypocracy..

    bhai then what are you doing over here. This website is basically for people who watch political talk shows and then have discussions on them. You are telling us that all of your comments are made without even watching the shows.

    excellent effort…
    Bravo…
    I read Nazir Naji’s articles….. It is v informative…… You know how….
    This shameless person has a great inner information source….. and sense the forthcoming changes…… and when he start writing against a particular person then it means that that person is loosing ground….
    He was supporter of musharaf and then he started writing His Name as Go musharaf GO in his articles some one month before he resign…
    The same was his attitude against CJ and then he some how develop soft corner for him..
    I think Mullana desil and Naji are two sides of one coin and u can predict things by listening to one and reading other and monitering their changing stance ….lol
    they are surag maki of our system……….hmmmmmmmmm I am sorry to resemble them with a flower …. infact they are shit of our system but just to explain my point I used this example….
    and regarding Mr Malik………..
    there are thousand more…. like him…..
    but I am happy for our country future….
    if we keep on exposing them … one day we will get ride of these Bust++rds

    Jornalist are also Pakistanis. The entire country is corrupt and the 180 million coward and shameless sheep are sleeping. If they do not wake up and kick them, they deserve to be kicked by these corrupt people.
    Presently all these corrupt people know that whatever we say, it is “LET THE DOG BARK ON THE STREET”.

  38. JanuJerman Khan says:

    we should also unmask treacherous policies of leading news papers who always worship the “rising starts” like in urdu it said “charhtay suraj kay pujari”

    these news papers follow policy of fazul-ur-rahman that is to be with the government of time no matter who is in power

    Jang group is one of those leading worshiper of incumbent government.

    They run media campaigns for government, like GEO ran campaigns for hadud-ordinance, lal-masjid, swat operation etc they target to shift public opinion in favor of government -that is where journalist like Malick come in to play -they work for government in disguise.

  39. sarwarkiani says:

    I am totaly disappointed by these two shameless journalists. (Naji) very sad very sad, what HAVE YOU LEARNT IN 50 YEARS OF YOUR CARRIER. WEL DONE AHMED NOORANI. Brother you did what so called journalists like NAJI could not do in 50 years.

  40. Cogito-Ergo-Sum says:

    BTW why are you so disturbed if Geo TV ran compaign against Zia’s Hadud Ordinance, Kalishankov Shariah of Lal Masjid, and now Taliban savages of Swat ????

  41. mansoor chaudhry says:

    Great job, these sacred cows should be dragged down in streets.
    I have a question, why Jang group have these kind of sacred cows on its panels. I thought that Nazir Naji would have been fired but his caloum is still on jang page.

    Does Mir Shakeel Ur Rehman has some intrest in it after all he is a businessman.

  42. scary says:

    Well done Admin. We all stand behind you as you expose these thief’s who have sucked our country dry. Expose them one by one. But the best part would be if you also expose those who benefit from there cowardly acts.

    Take them on one by one. Don’t leave any one behind or you would loose your credibility. Like always it will be the poor private sector who will sort the mess out. Don’t count on the so called “leaders”

    At long last we are going to see our hero’s come down on there knees. I can hardly wait.

    By the way lets all demand that he should be tried and held accountable.

  43. truepakistani says:

    Jang newspaper since past several decades using opportunist attitude to get undue benefits. Now, it has rised upto highest peeksand turned into icon in industry where they can destabilize any government.

    Most prominent blacksheeps of yellow journalism have been engaged by JANG GROUP to achieve its motives. Nazir Naji, Malick Zong, Kamran Khan etc. are best examples.

    As a business tactics JANG GROUP also engage some men of principles like ansar abbasi, and also project some peoples interest oriented tasks like Judges issue etc.

    Both the sides of pictures make JANG GROUP most popular icon in people. Means, no principle at all just play the game and get the money.

    Ayub Khan rightly exposed Mir KhalilurRehman in 60’s saying him “opportunist’ who writes in Rawalpindi one viewpoint and in Karachi different view on same issue.

    Jnag Group is no doubt very high level blackmailers, Zia Shahid learned the same lession and adopted same policy and introduced latest model of organized blaikmailing “Khabrain”.

    Then comes some other small level newspapers.

    It is fact that most of the newspapers do not pay to correspondances and openly asks them to get money by blackmailing and also give portion of that blackmailing amounts to newspaper owners.

    During last 25 years, some journalists and most of the MUllas have turned to be millionairs/billionairs and people on bicyles are now having Landcruisers, Plots, Banglows, Bank balance, foreign properties, foregin trips, having families in foreign countries, having foreign Bank accounts, spending leaves with family abroad.

    It is fact that students having low merit unable to get admission in important subjects always get admission in journalism in universities.

    People of such a low merit now have turned to be so important in media forum and getting millions in cash and plots etc.

    Mullas always having ROTIES/KHANA 7 LIBAS as KHERAT/SADQA donated by Mohalla people are now millionair, having landcruisers, big houses, jeeps, number of armed guards and running Madrissah business and also enjoying NUISANCE in society.

    It is impossible now to safe guard our country by the common man, only and only Allah can do that.

    Good Attempt Admin
    Nazir Naji is the bas***rd,i knew him even b4 this recording.Abbas Ather,Imtiaz Alam,Assad ullah Ghalib,Nusret Javed,Hassan Nisar,Pervaiz Hudd Bhai,Arshad Ahmad Haqani,Atta ul haq qasmil(Alway Praises Nawaz Sharif),Najam Sathi,Zia Shahid and Many more they all are on the payroll of India+Isrial+USA they are more dangerous than Taliban,Taliban Beheaded the people once for all and these culprits change the minds of people even worst.
    in addation u all must note that why GEO always promote India in its Entertainment news rather than Pakistan.
    Javed Ch,Talat Hussain,Mushtaq Minhas,Dr Safder Mahmood,Ansar Abbasi,Hamid Mir,Haroon Ur Rasheed,Irfan Saddique,oriya Maqbool Jan they sound and Seems Good i think they are +ve elements of this community.

    @ B.A.
    Not a surprise to me, but these guys have SUCCESSFULLY managed to ‘read’ my comments sent just a few minutes back, & EXERCISED their “MODERATION” in order to completely WIPE-OFF my comments from their screen; despite the fact that I did not address or name their ‘admin’ as their guys/in-charge of their administration, which I usually do.
    My NEXT MISTAKE seems that I alluded to an ‘apprehension’ they could be a spy agency, which NOW is proved to be CORRECT? You plz be careful,too.
    I am DOUBTFUL IF, this comment of mine could stay on their screen for more than a few seconds, till one of their ‘sniffers’ sniffs my remarks?

  46. Javaid Khan says:

    @

    Agree with your list of bad guys except for Atta ul Haq Qasmi. He is basically a writer and

    poet in addition to being Column writer. He has family affiliation with Muslim League, thats

    why he always have good words for Nawaz Sharif but he is not for sale. He belongs to a

    respectable muslim league family,his father was a worker in Pakistan Movement.

  47. Aazian Aziz says:

    what should a poor man do who have nothing but to earn only his day to day livelihood, who never heard of economy, politics, bureaucracy and sociology, whose every sufferings are because of the leadership and after that because of this so called their representative, who are responsible to make their unheard and un-thought voices, who talk of equality and justice only and only to others, not have a single moment to look at him self in front of his bathroom mirror, this cartoons of our country spreads their roots from school, collages to presidential house. what will be the shape of our tomorrow and what will happen to the majority who don’t even think about himself and others. who don’t know the money which he earned by burning his blood and paid to government are spent and facilitate for and to whom and whom.
    what can be said for all those black and stone hearted journalists who know the situation and condition of our people and land, but still on one hand mix our blood with every of his night packs, and after wards come and play some verbal intercourse in TV shows for us, and on other we spreading our legs are happily listen to them and accept their views.

  48. Imtiaz says:

    Its good to bring corrupt elements of the society to the limelight. This is a great forum for Pakistanis to share their genuine concerns about our national issues. But it looks like Jamaati campaigners are dominant here. Their dirty substance is spread all over Pkpolitics.

    @ admin:
    Good job, exposing such black sheep in our society is a great achievement. But I have a concern over it that just like Nazir Naji case, until and unless some official and judicial action is not taken up against these people , it is almost effortless to expose them. There should be some forum of lawyers which we should support financially to put such culprits on court trial.

    I am sure many lawyers are also visiting this website , who had contribution in the justice moment, they should come up with such a possibility that how we can systematize such trials…

  50. SnrCtzn says:

    Just Curious. (A request to readers of Urdu daily ‘Jang.’)
    1.Could somebody please clarify what is the philosphy behind the word ‘Jang’ used by that Urdu newspaper since long?
    2. Since years this newspaper has carried it’s name in Urdu (as well as in Roman Urdu) as ‘Jang.’
    3.Is not more desirable & correct as ‘Jung’?
    4.Whatever; does it stand for it’s English (equivalent) word, WAR?
    5.If so,then why ‘WAR’ & why not the use of Urdu word ‘Amun’ or ‘Aman’ which in our religion of Islam is another meaning for PEACE?
    6.Or does ‘Jang’ also mean ‘struggle’in Urdu?
    7.If so then struggle ‘for & against’ what & whom?
    8.I once asked one of it’s editors to clarify but he failed to satisfy my curiousty!

  51. c hussain says:

    Although I have very high regard and respect for Nawaz Sharif for his courage to face the difficulties and torture inflicted on him by Musharraf but at the same time if we have to accept the responsiblity for our past sins then I am sure he would also admit that he was the one who brought down the politics level to corruption based on money. He was the one who would take one lac ruppees for signing jobs even to the level of a sweeper when he was Chief Minister of Punjab and also he was the one who introduced this corruption of buying journalists, politicians, members of assembly for his own survival. I hope he has learnt his lesson that money cannot buy everything but fear of God and love of Awam can make you invincible for this life and hereafter.

    He is no doubt doing a very good job now and hope that he would lead this country with full responsibility, maturity and wisdom.

    God bless him

  52. c hussain says:

    Jang is the oldest newspaper in Pakistan that has been in continuous publication since its inception in 1939. The name was coined to depict the struggle of Muslims for their identity and role although Pakistan was not coined as yet because Lahore Resolution was passed in 1940 a year later.

  53. Journalists should be accountable just like everyone else, but I find it odd that the only kind of journalists attacked on PKP these days are those who seem to be against the Al-Qaeda proxies in journalism.

    Certainly we don’t have angels in the form of craven and shameless supporters of beheadings, killings and woman-floggings in the form of … umm… Let’s say, Ansar Abbasi?

    Also a nice way to distract attention from the abuse scandal unfolding against a PML-N member of parliament?

    Just my opinion of course.

    Agreed that these three are shameless PZP supporters, but don’t let your eye off the ball. If there is to be accountability, then let us hang all the dirty laundry out to dry.

  57. @a-d-m-i-n: don’t get me wrong man! I really appreciate your efforts to take EVERYONE to task and to make a point that NO-ONE is a holy cow or above the law. Even the Sahafi’s or even the “Wukala”. I have been an un-flinching supporter of the Lawyers Movement for Rule of Law, but even if the Chief Justice Iftikhar Choudhry does something not right, then even HE should be exposed.

    No question about that! and thanks again for all your efforts and investigative journalism in keeping the fire lit under the toes of those who are influential and powerful in our society. Only by ruthless self criticism can we make Pakistan strong.

    This is what I believe.

  58. admin pkpolitics says:

    @TK and everyone else,

    We have limited resources and we will not be able to investigate everyone. Therefore we may look biased by some when we publish against one and not other.

    I would suggest that everyone should participate and share any scams against anyone along with documentary evidence and we will publish it.

  59. syed1508 says:

    Journalists are not from different planet. They are the same people like other in the society and IF these people had played honest and unbias role, things could have been better in Pakistan. Majority of journalists play in the hands of political leaders and establishment and their moral and character is zero and for money they would do any thing.
    In Musharraf tenure journalists got full freedom but they are unprofessional and have no maturity to deal with the problems in the society.
    They played nasty role with lawyers movement and received money in favour of opposition. They are spreading vulgarity and corrupting in our culture.
    In the end, they are the CANCER of our society which has no cure.

  60. scary says:

    @admin.Pkpokitics

    Sir, you are doing a great job and we respect you and your limited resources. I fully appreciate that you would not be able to satisfy everyone in this forum. Don’t let that hinder your efforts. Amongst us are people from left, right, center, those resident abroad, secular and nonsecular, dare I say from India not to mention some other nationalities pro and anti Pakistan.

    All that makes this a very unique forum. The credit for that goes to you. I only hope this is advertise heavily so that some 10 year old child can read Mr Zardari the comments on this forum every night before he cuddles himself under his blanket.

    In fact I think our corrupt leaders and our peoples security should be the main two areas where we should pay emphasis. This culture of accepting bribes should be exposed for everyone and anyone including, politicians, military personals, businessmen, policemen, media people, customs, taxation people, bureaucrats etc etc

    You have made a great forum. We will help you to make this a great institution one day, inshallah.

    The journalists were always corrupt. The DAWN newspaper was a trust founded by Mohammed Ali Jinnah. How come the damn Haroons became the owner of that? There must be a board of trustee to govern it. Now we know why the Taliban is gaining popularity? When the entire machinery gets rusted, then it is the time to replace the old with a new one. Very easy to scrap the old theives, but the people do not want. This 180 million coward sheep has been kicked time and again by the Zardaris, Sherifs, Altaf and the most corrupt “THE PAKISTAN ARMY”. but they still love them.
    The holy Koran says that Betrayers are those who does everything to please the Kafir and will be at the bottom of the Hell. No chance for them to come out. The holy Koran also says that one cannot pray for a Kafir. How come these sheep attend the funeral prayers of the Betrayers, who kill their own people on the orders of the their God “THE KAFIRS”.

    Journalists like Hamid Mir, Dr Shahid Masood, Talat

    Hussain, Javed Chaudhry has at least have the courage to write it in there article .Now a

    days no one is a true leader they all are corrupt politiciansthe best place of all these is

  67. Aseer says:

    aristotle!

    Admin at pkpolitics has put its collective head on the block. Do you have such courage?

    If pkpolitics carries on in this vein it is going to end up with many enemies. The danger then is that these gutsy people may have to retreat in the face of threats.

  68. 1: Why we always see character assassination campaigns on PKPolitics only against people who sympathize with PPP?

    2: Is everybody across the political/journalistic spectrum sacred except PPP and its followers? If not, then why mud-slinging is the destiny of only pro-government people here on our beloved forum?

    This is a baseless accusation without supporting evidence. PkPolitics does not post exclusive content very frequently, except when submitted to us with corroborating evidence. For example, the expose on Nazir Naji and now on Muhammad Malick.

    This has nothing to do with being pro- or anti- any party.

    As a public forum we vigorously aim to uphold freedom of expression and opinion. You are free to post any comments or opinion as long as you refrain from using vulgarity, indecent language and it is not insensitive to an ethnicity.

    The moderation is automatic and triggered by specific keywords. Given the volume of comments posted, moderation is necessary to prevent this forum from descending to the level of other online forums.

    Comments are moderated and cleared as soon as possible in all cases. If your comment is under moderation, it is futile to post its duplicates, or send abusive emails to the admin. This will be the shortest route to being banned, a result which we try always to avoid.

    3: Medical Dr Shahid Masood, recommended pkpolitics.com in one of his articles ( Jang), what he has to do with this forum? I never had any doubt about that opportunist guy. Since he was kicked off from PTV, he is spreading venom against PPP government and generating disappointment among the nation. What is the synchronization between this Dr and PkPolitics?

    We welcome positive as well as negative criticism from all media outlets/entities and journalists. Your specific question should be addressed to Dr. Shahid Masood himself because only he is qualified to answer it.

    4: Who is the sponsor of PKPolitics? I am sure running expense of a web site like this cannot be handled by paid subscription -btw- I am a paid subscriber.

    PkPolitics runs solely on subscriptions and Google Adsense revenue.

    5: Why we don’t know the name of the person who runs this forum, everywhere else a public forum knows the proprietors but here we don’t know except “Dear Admin”, why?

    Hi, I am @Admin of PkPolitics.
    السلام علیکم، میرا نام ایڈمن ال-پی کے پالیٹیکس ھے۔

    2. What I am saying is, that I too had the ‘temerity’ or was ‘fearless & daring’ enough to make the same request to the admin but look what happened?
    3.The only addition I made in my comments was that ‘MOST OF VISITORS’ to these columns regularly give vent to their feelings expressing doubts about the genuiness/names of the sponsors/admin, & wish them to confirm/deny an unconfirmed ‘charge’ against them of NOWADAYS belonging to a spy agency.

    1- I think you are hyper sniffing the intentions behind this forum. Yes, this site has an obvious l’ll tilt toward Lahori Tahka (which has been grossly countered by bandooq mafia) but overall a-d-m-i-n is doing a great job. I wouldn’t be surprised if s/he is just a 20 years old kid (but growing very fast) knocking out goons in their 70s.
    2- Now a question: In a previous post you mentioned about the corruption in Europe. Can you point us to some documents shedding light on this topic? Petty corruption was a rampart in Europe about 300 years ago? If so, how did it end? Some people in Pakistan think that our national conscious is over sensitive to corruption (paradoxically, majority is also actively involved in it). Instead of cracking it down we should concentrate on economic development. Prosperity will automatically bring down corruption? Do you see such historical evidences in Europe? No country has been able to end big corruption so far. It just morphs itself into a new form.

  72. Adonis says:

    @ c hussain

    Unfortunately, your information about Jang’s origin is absolutely wrong.

    Jang’s name does not signify struggle against british or anything like that. In fact, Mir Khalil steadfastly worked to avoid any sort oof struggle against any government !!!!

    Jang was named such because it started soon after the start of 2nd world war and in the spirit of times, it was named Jang (war).

    It is also not the oldest newspaper in Pakistan. Jang was a newspaper published from delhi and stopped printing at the time of independence and then was relaunched from karachi.

  73. Fariza says:

    First lets not make this a partisan issue. Without naming names, there are some
    very high profile ‘respected’ journalists with wealth far beyond their means whom
    you read, hear, watch and believe on a daily basis.

    Pakistan’s problem is not about democracy, which has largely been used as a tool
    to empower dynastic families with token representation of the masses. Pakistan’s
    problem lies in ensuring that the stake-less and state-less elite that rules it is held
    accountable for its misdeeds in a peaceful manner. This can be achieved through
    judicial activism and seems a natural progression of the lawyers movement.

    We have not even begun to scratch the surface of how Pakistan’s elite (military,
    political, bureaucratic, aristocratic, etc.) really behaves and works together to
    ensure its survival and that of their families. It has little interest in ensuring that
    an average citizen has security of life and livelihood and that his or her’s kid has an equal chance of rising to the top as any of their children.

  75. Ali Q says:

    @Fariza

    In most of the world, the elite rule and hold the offices of power. (france, italy, substantial number of U.S. lawmakers, the british…etc.)

    I think our problem’s a little different….

    Our problem is that the elite dont know how to run the country – or solve our problems. They are just HORRIBLE at leading. Their leadership skills are poor.

    Maybe it’s because, the source of their wealth for most of these people is by virtue of inheritance, and not hard work. None of these guys are businessmen/workers who started small and worked their way up. Most of them have had land in the family or have expolited religion to make gains.

    I guess my point is, it’s not just the elite ruling that is the problem. That’s OK. The problem is the elite that’s present in the National Assemblies is the elite which has rarely given anything to the country, but instead always taken from it.

    That, in my opinion, is what has to change.

    Point for all fans of the crusader Ansar Abbasi:

    Recently, Ansar Abbasi played a media gimmick by returning a plot given to him by Shahbaz Sharif however, not many people know that he got a plot from the Information Ministry for Journalists in February 2007, when he was crusading against Pervez Musharraf. http://www.infopak.gov.pk/plots/i15finallistfeb242007.htm

    Wow, I think chhota plot mila tha ya sector achha nahee tha therefore he went against Musharraf!

    Well done Ansar Abbasi

  79. Jamhooriat says:

    @awaukha

    For your kind information, Ansar never accepted the plot given in the list u have referred.
    Rather most of the people had not accepted these plots , so this is just a list.

    in future, investigate thoroughly before jumping up for such allegations.
    And also it was not the case that Ansar was supporting musharraf before this list (only list) and then became anti musharraf.

  80. Jamhooriat says:

    @ awaukha

    Another correcction. The pplots given in punjab journalsit society were given by Pervaiz Elahi and NOT by Shahbaz Sharif.

    Besides the plots (list only as i explained above) were advertised in newspapers and the process was (mostly) transparent unlike underhand plot allottments by PPP govt.

    Now I will ask you if you have guts to condemnd corrupt practices of current PPP govt. and can you try to find out list of people who have been allotted plots by PPP govt. without any transparent process.

    Nice work admin.
    Salute to your research.

    If you guys can research and publish family tree and relations of Politicians, Bureaucrats, Generals, Businessmen & Landlords.

    Also I heard some Indian newspaper published list of Traitors of Indo-Pak history who received big rewards for selling their nation, if anyone can give link and reference.
    Thanks

    Mohtaram I was not suggesting that there should be no elite. There is always
    one. I was pointing out the current elite and its nature of being state-less and stake-less. Pakistani cabinet members, members of national and provincial
    assemblies, bureaucrats, and powerful advisers hold dual nationalities. They have
    Swiss bank accounts and properties in UAE, Australia, Spain, UK, Canada, USA, to
    name a few, and mostly through money siphoned through no bid contracts,
    written-off bank loans, and real estate scams, among other methods. Even if they
    had kept their money in the country, as Suharto mandated to his clique, they
    would have had at least a financial stake.

    I will maintain that Mr. Maalick is not alone in profiting from his position. There
    are others.

    I think most people are jealous of journalists being in the limelight and earning handsome money, and because of this people are targetting the whole journalists’ community. Exposing wrongdoing is something which should not be done without proper proofs and substance, but throwing wild allegations on each and every journalist is totally regretable. The very fact that anti-journalist material is allowed to be printed on this website is one big piece of evidence that Journalists are being made accountable if they stepped out of line. Now, we should not go as far to hang them on the basis of evidence presented but do the right thing by applying pressure (thru email, telephone call, call in live programs on different channels etc) on employers who hired such journalists by asking them to either have their alleged employee prove the allegations wrong or move out.

    I think PkPolitics has started a very good channel for all to expose people from all walks of life including journalists, and i salute this honesty and opportunity. Keep it up!!!

    You said:

    Here on this forum most of the contributors are from overseas and I think they are already well off and earning handsomely.

    People are targeting those who abuse power and use unfair means to get public property.

    What a load of nonsense, if someone is willing to make statements like this, why are they afraid of giving an author name? I personally know Mohammad Malick and can assure you that he’s not guarding some mountain of treasure underneath his flaws, he works himself to the bone day and night and his house would represent little more than this.

    Also the most priceless argument,

    “b- The other company Pink Production is basically registered in the name of Anila Malick, wife of Muhammad Malick. However, the business of this company was also controlled by Muhammad Malick according to almost everyone in PTV. ”

    I don’t know whether your source is a moron or you are, Anila Malick not only completely controls and owns Pink Productions she also manages the parlor “Annies” in F8, Just because she’s a woman doesn’t give you the right to discriminate and based on “almost everyone” have your sources observed her life pattern? Do you have any idea what she’s been through and does for her family? this kind of journalistic freedom makes me absolutely sick.

    As for Zong, do more research into that too, your off by about 75% and lack of detail is brilliant.

    As for PTV a company that I myself know very well, they seem to cause more problems for everyone in there as opposed to aid, should your knowledge be so accurate, ask your “source” how many times he’s been offered the position of Managing Director in the last few years, if he was corrupt, why not take it? or a better question yet, why has he been rejecting it this whole time? is he perhaps too confident in PTV’s inability to match other broadcasting networks in this country?

    Currently he’s editor of The News, a position he loves, if you can get your source to fetch you information let him find out about Malick’s love for the written press, his history will illustrate he has always preferred written media to the new generation of infotainment that passes as news. Give the ignorant blogs, this is what happens.

    P.S. While reading i’ve discovered that about 80% of the people who’ve read this article are complaining as to this man and journalists of his sort corrupt Pakistan. Bull. Its you, 80% of that 80% probably don’t even Vote but go about complaining about corruption government etc when your not even willing to make that simple effort. You dont do research on your facts but believe any load of garbage fed to you, yea? Go look for articles other than this exact replica on various websites and find one as full of bull about Malick as this one, surely a man who’s taken so much has more written about him? Do your research on a publication known as The Tribune in Pakistan and why it shut down. I’m ashamed to say its not even the authors ignorance that concerns me its the serious amount of morons who gobble this crap up unfortunately apart of the minority able to use a computer in this country and “corrupting” minds on blogs, I’d rather you took money that fed this country more bull than it already has. Half of your grammar and spellings are terrible anyways and I’m 19. Educate yourselves before you try to be so smart running your mouth left, right and centre and go find the real corruption in this country, the mirrors probably in the bathroom.

    It is requested to all the accountable Authorities including CJP to get the detail of all journalists who get plots anywhere in Pakistan, not not only journalist but politicians, Generals, bureaucrats, Judges, sportsmen & others from 1980 onward may be publish for the people of Pakistan & sou motto notice may be take against them.

    Similarly same action also be taken against the defaulter of loan, who get loan and than under the political influence the write off the loan.
