Meray Mutabiq Shahid Masood On Way Out?

Am not sure if this is a good news or bad news. According to this news from the Nation, Shahihd Masood disobeyed a clear directive from the Presidency. t

Soon after the President’s decision to address the nation, the Information Ministry directed the PTV authorities to make arrangements for the speech. Once the PTV team reached the Presidency, it was decided that the President’s speech would be recorded rather than broadcast live and clear instructions were provided to the PTV Chairman and MD Dr Shahid Masood to organise recording equipment accordingly.

After approving the draft of the address, the President, as a part of the routine exercise, took a few minutes to rehearse the speech. The PTV cameras and recording systems were activated to monitor the rehearsal.

The President’s rehearsal was telecast live by the PTV and this live feed was picked by two other private networks. Dr Shahid Masood was present on the scene all through the episode.

Upon learning of the mishap concerning his address, the President ordered the Minister of Information and Broadcasting to initiate an inquiry into the incident. The Information Ministry has constituted a committee to investigate into the matter. Dr Shahid Masood, who was to accompany the President on his trip to New York to attend the UN General Assembly session was ordered to stay back in Pakistan till the inquiry into the incident was completed.
