AJK govt bans Geo News over map controversy
In a release issued today, Azad Kashmir government said that Geo News in its program aired an incomplete Pakistan map, which damaged the Kashmir freedom movement.
The release read that Geo News actions have become unbearable and called the Government of Pakistan to take serious notice of it.
The AJK government slammed Geo News saying that it has become a routine matter for the media house to air controversial content, then to furnish explanations and ask for pardon, and then again repeating same sort of things.
A week ago, Geo News in its program ‘Aaj Shahzaib Khanzada k Sath’ had aired a Pakistan map with Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan excluded from it, which drew serious reaction from all over the country.
The private news channel later apologized for it, like the way it did on many other occasions previously.
