Geo TV Network has issued an official Public Apology to our esteemed client, Mr. Rana Hamir Singh (MPA and Ex-Federal Minister), and his family. This historic apology was necessitated by the defamatory content aired during their program, “Khabarnak,” and was broadcasted on the 14th of February 2021, on the very same show.
In this landmark legal triumph, the driving force behind our firm’s success was none other than Barrister Junaid Ahmed, the Founding Partner of JA Legal. With unwavering dedication and legal acumen, Barrister Junaid Ahmed led the cases as the lead Counsel before the Sindh High Court at Karachi and the PEMRA Council of Complaint. Through his tireless efforts and expertise, our firm achieved an extraordinary outcome in securing this Public Apology.
It is imperative to underscore the profound significance of this case in Pakistan’s legal landscape. This marks the inaugural instance in Pakistan’s history wherein a Public Apology has been televised in response to content aired on a “parody or comedy show”. This watershed moment not only vindicates the integrity and reputation of our client, Mr. Rana Hamir Singh, and his distinguished family but also sets a precedent for accountability in media, demonstrating the pivotal role that legal expertise, led by Barrister Junaid Ahmed, plays in upholding justice and dignity in our society.
