KARACHI: The Supreme Court Bar Association has called a meeting on Saturday in the wake of the Defence Ministry’s application against Geo.
In a statement here, SCBA President Kamran Murtaza said any action against Geo would cause anarchy. He said the dispute should be resolved amicably as it was in the interest of Pakistan. He said the lawyers community was in favour of a free media. He said the Saturday’s meeting would devise a strategy in this regard.
Former SCBA president and Pakistan Bar Council member Yaseen Azad said the government had announced an investigation commission and Pemra should not take any action until the investigation was completed. He said if Geo was targeted, there would be tension between the government and media. He said any delay in the registration of an FIR on the murderous attempt on Hamid Mir could affect the case. He said had the reservations of Hamid Mir been put on record, the situation would have been different.
