the Supreme Court of Pakistan’s decision on 14 June on cash for favour allegations of Riaz Malik -vs- Arslan Iftikhar on which earlier a suo moto action was taken by Supreme Court on news reports.

dealt with according to the law of the land as taking and giving bribe is not only a crime but a sin.


“SC has raised some valid points and it’s about time that press and media of Pakistan root out travellers amongst their ranks, and contribute with the parliament to introduce a regime with consultation of proper representation of both side of media, regulation of it, adjudication any complaints again it and a compensation scheme to remedy the situation in order to address the grievances of the genuine victim of a news in error, or a false scandal. These reforms needs to be introduced on western lines if Pakistani society wishes to protect media freedom from the manipulation of all sides”, said Mr. Malik,
