Islamabad (Pak Destiny) ARY discarded Mubashir Lucman has to join Business Plus after BOL Media Group refused to take him on board.
Back to square one, Lucman is back to the channel from where he had started off his journalism career.
“For the moment, I shall be appearing on Business Plus the first channel I ever started with as then lets see what future has in store,” Lucman tweeted.
According to sources, Salman Iqal, CEO of ARY, fired Lucman as he could not bear the pressure of the court. Iqbal had to appear in the court for the ‘wrongdoings’ of Lucman.
Mubashir Lucman first contacted the BOL management once he was fired from ARY. But the BOL management which earlier was willing to take him refused him this time saying top anchors like Kamran Khan and Iftikhar Ahmed think his joining the BOL team will make the channel controversial. “We may consider you later,” the management told Mubashir.
Poor Mubashir then contacted Express Media Group management but it also refused because Lakhnai is close to Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid. After that Mubashir could not muster the courage to try his luck with other mainstream channels which he had not joined earlier like Dawn News or SAAMA.
The Jang/Geo group is very happy to see him out of the mainstream channels. Pakdestiny
