Ansar Abbasi Pakistani media jihadist

Apr 8th, 2013 | By | Category: Uncategorized


Ansar Abbasi has done it again. In order to follow his Ziaist/Jihadist political agenda, Ansar Abbasi in the following clip from Hamid Mir’s show “Capital Talk” from April 4th 2013 clearly identifies how article 62 and 63, which are under a lot of criticism, are “fair”.

In this instance, Ansar Abbasi tries to justify the rejection of Ayaz Amir’s papers for candidacy for National Assembly seat by saying that provision (d) of article 62 clearly says if someone violates Islamic injunctions, he is not eligible. When Hamid Mir and Ayaz Amir (the latter had joined the show via telephone) clarified that column under consideration was an article originally written in English and then was translated to Urdu, Ansar Abbasi jumped to provision (h) of article 62 and said the candidate should not be opposed to the ideology of Pakistan and implied that Ayaz Amir was in violation since he has numerous articles out that do not agree with the “ideology of Pakistan”. It was clear that Ansar Abbasi, as always, had no clue what he was talking about and when he was proven wrong on one thing, he jumped to another point simply to try and win the argument. We are not against Ansar Abbasi holding an opinion but clearly, this was no opinion. This is an ideological agenda which Ansar Abbasi has been pursuing for a while.

We would request someone to please got tell Ansar Abbasi that ideology of Islam (which he mentioned was La-Illaha-Illalah) can not be so easily defined under the constitutional and Pakistani context. As Ayaz Amir explained a day later in his column:

And what is called the ideology of Pakistan, what is it? Nothing more or less than the ideology of Iqbal, the ideology of Jinnah as set forth, when he spoke from his heart without a prepared text, in his Aug 11, 1947 address to the Constituent Assembly. Any other interpretation amounts to undermining and indeed subverting what they stood for

It is also ironic that Ansar Abbasi talks about article 62/63 when in fact his journalism has been under fire for lies and he has twisted facts and history in defense of militants as previously covered by Pakistan media Watch team. Why is it that we were unable to find a single column of Ansar Abbasi asking for stricter implementation of article 62/63 in 2002, during Musharraf referendum? Or is it applicable only to hound the political class of today? Ansar Abbasi’s love for Jihadism has been clear from the very beginning. A couple of such instances are when he defended Mumtaz Qadri or when he termed the killers of women and children as “Islamic warriors” in his columns and then published them for the masses to read. Not to mention, his extremist sympathies are well documented as well.

It is important to mention that we are not against Ansar Abbasi holding an opinion; he has every right to his point of view. Our concern is Ansar Abbasi showing his opinions as facts to the awam and Jang group giving him space for such views. The question now is whether Jang/Geo group is continuing to project these views out of ideological sympathy, or are they using Ansar Abbasi as their Media Taliban in a proxy war against the political class? These are the facts. You decide.

  1. From,
    Mr. K.G.VILOP,
    ADDRESS: – 5th Cross, 1st Main,
    Bannerughatta Road,
    Karnataka state.

    Subject: – Action/ control/ dismantle the terrorists & its groups from root
    itself——–IN REGARDING.

    The killing of the Indian soldiers in an ambush in Indian territory, attack at yemen, attack at jalabad embassy and threatening entire nations by the terror outfit like Al-qaeda, JuD, Lashkar-e-Toiba, Hizbul Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Taliban has become dangerous to the nations for attacks against innocent peoples of the country. We are calling for strong reactions against these terrorists from the nations. These has become serious incidents after killing and threatening the countries & attack against the innocent peoples. We must message to Pakistan, afganisthan that these kinds of attacks will not be tolerated anymore. It is useless to debate the birth of Pakistan which is getting more radical and Talibanized. The attackers and terrorists are well trained in Pakistan with sufficient flow of fund shelter and food from the Pakistan country itself. Everytime these incident happens, our country lodge protest. Now also they have violated the ceasefire in LoC. But the pak has been in denial at every events. The Pakistan has become liar. Those countries who support the Pakistan will have to suffer in future by their own hand. Even the pak will spoil the neighbouring countries by making terrorism country. The pak terrorists will sneak in your country also and make the environment very dirty. If pak is not creating terrorists then from where terrorists are coming. Are they coming from heaven. Sufficient warn and advice had given from the neighbouring country but pak have not attempted to control the terrorists. Instead of they are encouraging them. Some of the terrorists leader like Mohd. Hafeez Saeed, was a beggar, has given VVIP security and sheltered in Pakistan. The Pakistan has supporting the terrorists groups. Those who give specific information nor behead the terrorists leaders like Mhd. Hafeez Saeed, Ayman –al-Zawahri, Nasser al-wuhaysi, Taliban leaders must be given bounty to the informer. These crookes will poise entire nation. Instead it is better to eliminate these terrorists. Actually Pakistan attack & crossing the LOC has now become a daily affair. Lodging a protest with Islamabad over the killings is the routine response,and it has been done. Countries must read the message of the killings carefully before it moves forward. Pakistan is already in deep crisis due to the coalition with the terrorists. The terrorists are ruling the Pakistan. The environment and conditions for peace are only going to get worse soon, with Afghan situation also becoming a factor in countries relations. It is time to teach fitting lesson to Pakistan, Afganistan. It is pakistan’s very old crooked practice to talk of peace and cooperation to be continuously carried on and then stab in India’s back frequently. The ISI, Army with terrorists of Pakistan is waging a war against the nations. Entire nation should be united in unison manner and to retaliate strongly and warn the Pakistan, Afganistan government. If we go by the past ISI’s track record it is certainly planned for the next five to ten years. The countries like US, China must seriously engage with India and other global powers so that they could rein in Pakistan diplomatically. The US forces/Nato-led combat troops should not be withdrawn until all the terrorists groups have been dismantled nor eliminated. Till that drone attack or launch attack must be proceeded wherever the terrorists has been sheltered in Pakistan, Afghanistan land. Pakistan is ruling with the support of terrorists. The terror groups are funded with the currency which is from Hawaala. The Reserve Bank should keep a vigil on money/monetary flow from one account to another. We have to improve our own surveillance.
    We all the countries should gather and must re-group to fight against terrorists and should give them a telling blow.
