When powers of tyranny approach to grapple us by throat, when they reach out to make us blind, when they want us mute and deaf, they defy the nation of its most trusted and honest source of information.............that is the independent media.

Today around a 100 LUMS faculty members and students gathered in the evening to register their protest against the actions of the Governemnt to enforce a closure on GEO & ARY TV in a unique candle light procession naming it "Light the way to freedom". Symbolising the new "Social Movement" and the fact that it was not possible without the intiatives of the independent media especially GEO TV & ARY ONE WORLD, the two top news channels in the country.

The Students & Faculty members remarked that a new social moement is under way, and the independednt media had a significant role to play, the government fearing that the mdeia will fuel this social reawakening, is taking steps to tame them. But, in the time to come, it will be proven that these very steps to curb acces the access to information to the pakistani public were the catalyst of a new social awareness and change.

What if Allama Iqbal were alive ???

Justice (r) Javaid Iqbal (son of Dr. Allama Iqbal was quoted saying to reporters that it is a blessing Allama Iqbal is dead today. Had Allama Iqbal been alive today, he would have been either a judge or a lawyer and getting beaten up by high school dropouts of Punjab police.

I think we need to tell Javed Iqbal that our king says (only says) 'SAB SE PEHLE PAKISTAN', so what if Allama Iqbal would have been beaten ? If this were in the 'Widest Interest of Nation and Country' then the Bravo King Mushy would not have let Allama go ... Did he ever done something for SAB SE PEHLE PAKISTAN ?

It should be noted that Geo news and its entire sister channels had been closed down across Pakistan after the imposition of emergency. Earlier, the cable operators in Pakistan were forced to close all channels being operated by Geo Network and the Pakistani viewers were deprived of the great source of information. However, the Geo TV was on air from its Dubai office. The latest developments are that the government of Pakistan has gone to the limit of seeking the closure of Geo News network across the globe through a country.
