ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s top newsmen seem to be on a collision course as seasoned journalist Rauf Klasra has moved Federal Investigation Agency against his fellow Mubashir Zaidi and others after the latter accused him of securing an illegal allotment of a plot in Islamabad.
Klasra, who gives a hard hitting analysis of the political scenario in his show ‘Muqabil’ was alleged by senior Dawn News anchor Mubashir Zaidi of getting a plot in the upscale G-13 sector of the capital during the stint of former premier Yousaf Raza Gillani, flouting the norms of journalism.
Klasra in his complaint also nominated four other respondents including Asad Ali Toori, UNDP employee Mrs Fouzia Yazdani, PTV official Shams Pervaiz and a web portal Dunya Pakistan.
A snapshot of notice was also shared by the journalist, which was disputed by the Mubashir Ali Zaidi who claimed that he received no such notice while correcting himself that he was referring to the G-14 plot instead of G-13.
He responded that Klasra was resorting to lies in a similar fashion as he used to do on television screen.
