KARACHI: The team of Sar-e-Aam, a whistle-blowing program exposing evils of society, paid the price for its national duty, when it was attacked and held hostage during a shoot at Mazar-e-Quaid.
The team, led by the program host Iqrar-ul-Hassan, was stopped and manhandled when it attempted to shoot immoral activities at the Quaid’s mausoleum. It was discovered during a shoot that a room where Quaid’s grave is located is rented to boys and girls reportedly for unethical activities.
The mausoleum administration got raged when Sar-e-Aam team made it to the Mazar-e-Quaid to record wrongdoings and unprincipled activities, patronised by the administration. In reaction, the authorities of the mausoleum attacked the ARY team, held them hostage and snatched all their valuables, until the issue was aired on ARY News and government high-ups took notice.
Governor Sindh Dr. Ishratul Ibad has also taken notice of the incident and sought report in this regard. He also ordered action against the responsible elements.
