KMB on Samaa Tv

Today a member of our KMB team Awab Alvi was invited on the Samaa tv talk show by “Faisal Qureishi” alongwith his father to talk about “Social awareness” and how the burgeoning elite of our society are accomplishing nothing by their actions for this country.

First of all, i would like to congratulate the Doc or both Docs in fact :), they did a fine job. Awab represented and argued his points well enough, his father obviously is no stranger to making good points on a forum like  Live Tv.

However as i watched the show and this is totally my own singular opinion. I came to realize that this show is less social reform and more political rant. That too of the most vile kind as the host does the ranting while the guests sit and are i guess supposed to nod their heads.

What is the benefit of such shows i wonder? Its the first time i have seen this show and probably the last time i will see it, because i do not see the point of it. Samaa is a relatively new channel and is getting quite popular in Karachi with its attempts at different sort of programming, but to me they have made a blunder with the plot of this segment atleast.

Anyways Big up Doc for representing Karachi and yourself well!!  Perhaps we can all just agree to disagree eh?

    pardon my ignorance but this is first time I heard this name. Maybe because my cable operator doesn’t allow me. is it a Karachi based channel like Bhai log’s channel "Metro"?

    ON CNBC Mujhaid Barelvi trashed Imran Khan on 29th, he was cross questioned I.K about boycotting (s)elections and forming alliance with Mullahs his question about NOW what will you & your allies will do when it is evident that Judges will not be restored and 30 days are almost OVER, cornering Imran Khan and finally bowled out with his last question would you still consider Zardari & Nawaz Shareef as REAL Political Leaders……. Poor Skipper was DONE.

    Asif Zardari wants to do business with Dogar,coz he was subordinate of Qaim Ali Shah at one time,he wants to accommodate him and reward him despite the sins committed by him by taking oath under PCO and validating 3rd Nov 07’s illegal acts of dictator, this kind of stance will hurt both PPP’s and Zardari’s standing, he should just try contesting from NA55 Pindi and he will suffer a humiliating defeat (zardari is a smart fellow he won’t be contesting from this seat,he knows he’ll loose)

    shamsi itna khush hone ki bhi zarurat nai

    THE CHOICE of not being a part of the election drama WAS JUST A CHOICE
    and choices can be wrong , whats the big deal about it?

    At least his party doesnt kill people for votes or has a militant WING like others especially MQM

    At least he is a clean guy for the public’s concern. No one is least bothered about what he does in personal life.

    And whats more
    he is a true and sincere PAKISTANi
    http://pakistaniat.com/2008/04/29/namal-college-imran-khans-brainchild-launched-in-mianwali/
    Just one more of the medals he carries

    While he is an idiot who jumped into the filthy domain for the the filthy people like ZARDARI ALTAF and NAWAZ , he at least has a principled stand for whatever he believes in
