Islamabad, June 6 (Pak Destiny) Federal Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid finally banned Geo News for 15 days under the direction from Mir Shakilur Rehman, leaving the ISI guessing about the MRS-Pervaiz smart work.
Since ISI did not accept the apology of Jang\Geo, both Rashid and MSR worked out the strategy to deal with the crisis.
Yesterday Rashid appointed PML-N handpicked Pervaiz Rathore, a former Lahore police chief under Shahbaz Sharif command, as PEMRA acting chief to get the job done.
According to a recent meeting between Pervaiz Rashid and MSR in Dubai they decided first Geo group seek apology from the ISI and in case it does not accept it, the channel would be off air for a couple of weeks to settle the issue once for all.
After 15 hours of his appointment Pervaiz Rathore today suspended the Geo News license for 15 days and imposed Rs10 million fine as per “written script” authored by MSR and Pervaiz Rashid.
The million dollar question is will the ISI accept this deal or not. – Pak Destiny
