Dr Shahid Masood who is the famous TV anchor person, a senior journalist, and political analyst has been in big trouble since he passed very controversial remarks regarding convicted murderer and rapist of little zainab of Kasur. Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) took suo moto notice of his fake and baseless claims. Three member bench led by Justice Saqib Nisar ordered to stop broad casting his late night talk show “Live With Dr Shahid Masood”.
In a TV show on Jan 25, Dr Masood had claimed the murderer had links with an influential poitical figure and was part of an international ring. The chief justice had taken notice of the claims and sought a subsequent inquiry by a JIT. The JIT report states that no proof was found of the convict’s connection with an influential person or that he was being patronized by a federal minister. It also states that no links of the convict with an international mafia or a serving federal minister were found.
Similarly, no proof was found that the convict could be killed while in police custody or that violent crime/child pornography is common in Kasur. Moreover, the JIT did not find any truth to Dr Masood’s claims that many gangs are involved in violent crime/child pornography in Pakistan or that Imran was an active member of such gangs.
