Startling revelations on the activities of a leading Pakistani media group have emerged with disclosures made by Mr. Mubashar Lucman in his program on ARY News on Friday, October 25. 

The program host gave details to the background of an article that appeared in a leading Indian daily “Hindustan Times”, both in its print and web editions on the 29th of September 2013. This smear campaign was read by millions of viewers in its print and web editions.

The article focused on an upcoming TV channel to be launched in Pakistan and alleged that this venture was being backed by Pakistan’s premier intelligence together with members of the underworld.

Following the appearance of the article, a legal notice was sent to Hindustan Times which resulted in an internal investigation by the management, the removal of the offending article from the website along with a clarification and inconvenience caused was regretted.

All three documents: The story, The clarification and The internal investigation report of Hindustan Times are being reproduced in their original form without any alteration, editing or addition. This is being done for the readers to get the complete and correct perspective of the entire episode.

You can see all three documents below.

    I read the URL. It appears that the story was printed on September 28and a senior level inquiry conducted and a report produced by October 4. Hardly seems unethical. The most they can be accused of is unprofessionalism. The lack of ethics if any surely belongs to GEO/Jang group who planted the story and had themselves published it to malign a rival? Why was that fact which is evident if you click the URL, not mentioned in the main story?

    Also what a misleading headline! Where is GOI involvement in this whole thing?

    Geo News is working on the agenda given by Foreign actors who want to destabilize Pakistan. The Magic bullet theory of mass communication was being used by the GEO News management and this is how they project the things as per the directions of non-state actors. Yes no doubt Geo is playing a role of non-state actor. Authorities should move ahead and shut down the Geo News if allegations were proved. Mubashar Lucman is doing a great job. Full marks to him. The main thing is that Geo hasn’t deny and given any clarification regarding this case.

    This is what we can call a technological upheaval that media is best to cultivate propaganda not at the smaller level but at the interstate level state to state level. Media is more on this urge to cash its own inherent interests and completely violates the respective laws. There is nothing big happened in Pakistan despite of what has been portrayed on media for all over the world. We can easily witness how much hue and cry on NSA intelligence moves but very little has been displayed on channels. This is actually media is coining its own interests despite of telling the truth. There is no element of surprise that India is always inclined to propagate against Pakistan. But it is the very own so called nationalistic entity which is culminating propaganda against Pakistan. Media is changing the perceptions against its very own country. A moment of alarm for all the related authorities to end all anti Pakistan moves by its own people.

    @Noman Ansari: Not only is there no Indian angle to the whole thing as you pointed out, this whole story seems to be as sourceless as the original article in HT was. HT at least investigated its story and within 5 days published a retraction. But this story is based on a supposed leaked report of HT investigation which blames Geo. However since the actual investigation has not been published but only some nameless individual’s opinion of what was in the investigation report, this story is as source less as the one it accuses HT of printing. HT apologized. Will ET? Certainly do not expect that from Mubashir Lucman of Malik Riaz and Mukhtaran Mai fame.

    Interesting – so claim by an American citizen born in US that an email that he wrote was actually dictated by Pakistani ambassador to US is to be believed though he was able to provide no proof. The only scandal about memogate is that an unsigned and undated memo could be taken seriously and the country’s ambassador be dismissed on that basis.

    As far as this particular case – what exactly is anti-Pakistan in this? It is just an out of control media rivalry assuming that the investigation report said what is claimed here. In absence of the actual investigation report by HT, even that is a difficult conclusion to reach.

    @Ali-PTI:
    Buddy, it was not GEO that was doing foreign propaganda. IT was HT that was conned into carrying a news item belittling its rival that (according to Mubashir Lucman) at GEO’s behest. Why do I say according to Mubashir Lucman – because there is no proof that theinvestigation report actually said what Lucman claims it did.

    The authenticity of this leaked report has confirmed by the hindustan times reporter, but 4 days have passed no denial yet (RAW is doing their job by pressurizing).

    Timing of article suspicions. I suspect sign of desperation as Congress smells a loss on election day.

    The communal rots in India are also a political tactic meant to gear up voters. Too bad it costs loss of life and other injuries to the innocents. Right on cue:

    It should not miss our focus that some elements with the objective of covering up their questionable credibility, and in selfish pursuit of personal gains, resort to character assassination of others. They level unfounded and fabricated allegations of receiving money and functioning as agents of RAW, MI and ISI.

    The worst drawback of today’s social media is that controversial reports, emails, pictures and videos are posted without giving any regard to the moral, religious and legal obligations. These elements should desist from indulging in such irresponsible behavior. What they need to understand is the fact that it is impossible to immediately find evidence of certain happenings and due time is always required to prove or disprove an allegation.

    The false allegations against Jang Group and Jehangir Siddiqui Group are drawing condemnation but, unfortunately, it is less visible on social media. This is so because there are certain individuals who control the social media and they use it to spread propaganda with the aim to suppress the truth and spread the false allegations.

    What is also important to consider is that what forces are behind this conspiracy and who is its ultimate beneficiary? In past too some rulers and powerful individuals were averse to the Jang Group’s policy of adhering to impartial reporting of facts and they conspired to tarnish Jang Group’s image. Hindustan Times recently clarified such an attempt:
