    What a shameless character Asma Shirazi. Some time ago she was caught attending a party at our "friends" embassy. And now she is so shameless that she is defending another corrupt behavior.

    @dell

    This is a character assignation attempt by you to defame Asma Shirazi. What about ex playboy life style and pictures of Imran Khan with lots of White women during his cricket days. Now Imran has become a saint and a strong supporter of Taliban mafia. Someone has said correctly "Billi chali hajj ko soo choohay kha key". Be a gentleman and stop character assassination campaign of Asma Shirazi.

    A Govt funded hajj is another thing but defaming her by posting pictures is inappropriate and invasion in her privacy. Would yo like to see pictures of your family on these pages on Internet? or what about your political hero Imran Khan. I am sure he has got more playboy pictures than anyone else.

    A lot of politicians were defending it too (no surprise since they use this kind of things to buy the journos). I just watched Khawaja Asif, e.g., saying he saw nothing wrong with the practice because they were doing a "naik kam"... :)

    I will never understand what good comes out of posting pictures of a news anchor's personal life or videos of a news anchor smoking. Why is our nation so obsessed with the personal lives of news media 'celebrities'? Our thoughts can be contrasting but our goals shouldn't be so **** scattered!

    Seriously guys! We have a lot of much more important issues to worry about.

    As for the Hajj issue, Aasma should be ashamed of herself. The hajj she performed was paid by the government. The government runs on tax money. The tax comes mostly from 'ghareeb awaam'. She had no right to go on that hajj. 'La Ilmi' is never an excuse especially when stealing from the poor awaam.

  13. Sweettruth,

    Asma Shirazi is a public personality, we have every right to expose her hypocritical behavior, she is all goodie goodie with a hijab and all but she doesn't see a problem with govt funded Hajj and partying at the expense of US embassy.

    Asma and Mehr are the darlings of right wingers and these rigth wingers need to see their reality.

    Just like all right wingers were gung ho about TTP being a righteous "Mujahids" whereas they were exposed by the whole Davis affair.

    This is not personal life, they were at AMERICAN EMBASSY.

    Why don't you post proof of Imran's past life, go a head post pictures of Imran, and it's my right to repudiate those allegations.

    And also, refrain from talking about my family, you don't know me like that!!! FYI none of my family members are in public and go to US embassy and party!!!

    @ sweettruth,

    I agree with the pictures part. That's her personal life. Who are we to judge her personal actions? I dont think she was drinking or doing drugs, even if she was we shouldnt consider media celebrities as angels or gods and expect them to be Masoom.

    As for the hajj issue, it was paid out of government funds that is generated via taxation (mostly sales tax paid by the poorer class). What gives her the right or the eligibility to do free hajj along with her husband on government funds?

    I personally have no ill will for Shirazi, I don't watch her shows. But I found it really funny that in her show on Wagah border she asked India to turn down the music because she was conducting her show on this side? That was so dumb of her!!

    Btw: Asma Shirazi in no way is a person he deserves a government funded hajj. If the government wants to sponsor hajj for somebody, then do it for the poor and needy and not well off people like corrupt Asma Shorazi.

    Official Hajj like plots is open corruption that government uses to hide it's deficiencies. The bigger corruption plots taken by judges, generals, politicians, bureaucrats, Journalists should be stopped. As far as Hajj is concerned religious scholars should come forward and high light it's religious value. My understanding is Hajj is not mandatory, those who can afford should perform one, which means it has to be from your hard earned savings not poor's tax money.

    I don't know if Asma Sherazi is right or left journalist, I seldom watch her but her pictures from embassy party were uncalled for. As a journalist it's part of her job to be at parties like that. If Hamid Mir, Talat Hussein, Kashif Abbasi can build relations with Taliban why Asma Shirazi can't with foreign consulates? What do we expect news that we get from media are revealed to journalists in dreams? They have to build relationships with information sources be it ISI, embassay, politician, or jihadi to extract news.

    Having said that Journalist like Politician needs to be careful using race or religion for personal growth. They may have short term personal gain but in long term nation pays the price as we are paying.

    Are you saying that all the journalists were present at the American embassy for reporting purposes or were they just enjoying and building relations with the Americans? Remember USA has a special budget for building a positive image in Pakistan by the use of money/parties. Can the journalists be trusted if they participate in such events?

    Btw: Whom of the participating journalists made prg. or article about the party and the purpose of the party?

    Our politicians are the most corrupt in the world and the nation is also same. Media is also part of our nation just like our cricketers and some people do not mind if the hajj is funded by Govt. But criticism of hers is unjustified and display of her pictures is highly dis-tasteful.

    CORRUPTION of all kinds is now a socially acceptable culture in Pakistan and the one who is not doing corruption is the one who has not yet got the opportunity!!!!

    Some people firmly believe women should stay home, cook meal for the family, wash plates, clean house and breed children. This negative and backward mentality is still very strong in our society and some small minded people get jealous when they see a woman climbing high in her professional life.

    When Hamid Mir's tape came out Kashif Abbasi and Talat Hussein in one of the program discussed how they themselves talked to alleged caller Usman. Among other things they discussed cricket at length with him. Some people may have issue why leading journalists are so cozy with killers who accept responsibility of every blast. But Kashif Abbasi aptly explained it. If he only talks to Usman when Usman has some news he will loose that source. Usman will only share news with him on regular basis if he feels comfortable with him. Same logic applies to journalists building relations with GHQ, consulates or Politicians. And yes journalists who build relations with information sources can be trusted, they all do - no exceptions.

    Sorry but that is such a screwed up statement -- even worse than @bitterlies. And since when did "building a relationship" mean do it by accepting bribes? It is NOT "building a relationship" but getting owned.

    What a "corrupt" statement to make! Fascinating! :)

    It would be really nice if they are partying at US embassy and getting close to them to extract info. But we all know the reality, you think Glen Beck parties with Palin to extract info? Obviously not, all fox news reporters were really close to Bush regime and towed his lines very well. Similarly, these journalists i.e. Asma and Bokhari etc were invited to US embassy so that they can get cosy with each other and than US embassy can influence their reporting.

    Remember both Asma and Mehr are right wingers not left wingers. It wouldn't be a big surprise if Mosharraf Zaidi or Nadeem Paracha et al were partying in US embassy like that but this is sheer hypocrisy by Bokhari and Asma. That's why I posted these pictures and they have been circulating the internet for a while now and they are shocking to many people for many different reasons i.e. some have problem with here "dancing and paling" around with men and some have a problem with her hypocrisy, and I too belong to the latter group.

    @Shirazi

    As Dell already has pointed out there can only be reason in being f.ex. in the American embassy if journalists wants to get some information they otherwise couldn't get access to. As far as I know none of the participants have reported about the shadowy practice of the American embassy and the journalist who love to be invited to such places. So there is NO excuse to participate in such dubious activities.

    If your goal is to expose right wing hypocrisy on speaking against US in Public for ratings and enjoying cozy relations with them in private, I agree. Most of our political and media elite are like that and they shouldn't be. I am not against them maintaining working relationship with all information centers and perhaps you don't have any objection either. So no disagreements.

    On Hajj .. my 2 cents ...

    Official Hajj like plots is an open corruption that government uses to hide it's deficiencies. The bigger corruption plots taken by judges, generals, politicians, bureaucrats, Journalists should be stopped. As far as Hajj is concerned religious scholars should come forward and high light it's religious value. My understanding is Hajj is not mandatory, those who can afford should perform one once in life, which means it has to be from your hard earned savings not by taxes collected from masses.

    No one is debating if that hajj was accepted by God or not, we are questioning her abuse of position, she was offered bribe so that she compromises in her professional field.

    After taking that favor she then did not do a program on Hajj scandal, that is what happens when people take bribe, they end up compromising over their DUTY

    1) It is WRONG to send any ppl for Haj on tax payers money, UNLESS they can not afford it and are deserving i.e. poor ppl.

    2) Personal life is out of bounds UNLESS if a person is a hyp/crit, i.e. if they pretend to be pious and are exposed in their personal life to be the opposite. Here another example would be IK (whose previous personal life has no bearing on today)

    3) There is no harms in keeping contact with the opposite side - this is the basis of dialogue.
