ARY’s Television Anchor Mubashir Lucman Officially Suspended

The Islamabad High Court on Wednesday put a restriction on the Lucman who is accused of defaming and ridiculing people during his shows.

The action follows a petition filed by the Lal Masjid Shuhada Foundation. Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui who heard the case remarked that several complaints were received against Lucman, adding that no action was taken by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regularity Authority (Pemra) and the Ministry of Information in this regard.

A ‘funny’ video of Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman was often aired on his show

In yet another episode Lucman criticized Geo for airing outsourced drama serial Mera Sultan. He said that the famous incident of Hazrat Musa (Pbuh) and Hazrat Khizra (Pbuh) quoted in Surah Kahf of Holy Quran was misquoted in the Turkish play Mera Sultan. Lucman’s claim was followed up by severe accusations of intentional disrespect – which is probably not true.
