In June last year, Najam Sethi’s show on Channel 24 was taken off air reportedly after the channel was warned against airing it. It was revealed that the action was taken after Sethi’s comments about PM Imran Khan on a number of matters including rumors of a rift between the PM and his wife Bushra Bibi which Sethi discussed on his show in April.
A different notice was served on Channel 24 by PEMRA over the episode where Sethi discusses a matter pertaining to Imran Khan and National Accountability Bureau (NAB). The notice that dismissed the analysis as ‘phony’ and ‘baseless’, raises question as to whether the PM is above criticism.
