GEO Gumnaam’s Video: Episode 3 & 4

We had already mentioned about GEO TV’s program Gumnaam making waves. Those who had missed asked if the video can be found. Finally someone posted the video. The way the dalaal was talking about the people having 10 kids and selling one of them was so painful. A bitter reality. Read the text reel at the bottom to make any sense. The statement by Gumnaam that hamari hukumat bhi toh en gareebun ke naam per bheek maangti hai is a big slap to our gov. but a honest reality.
Video One : Gumnaam (Beggars Buying Kids) – episode 4

I have stopped giving these fakeer’s money anymore few years back. Specially those who have kids with them. The max. I do is get them food if they really need it. This video clearly shows how those kids have been bought & sold previously.
Video Two : Fake Fakeer – episode 3
The following second video is the previous fakeer’s deceitful sex with poor women. There was a good percentage censored for obvious reasons. For reason unknown the voice is not there but you can read out the sentence at the bottom.

    First of all thanks to MB for posting the videos. I missed a couple of episodes on the show.This indeed is a very futile issue to point fingers at, and i am wondering at the stance that Geo took in order to air this. Its like words are building up in everyones mind but they are finding it hard to put them together about this whole “Gumnaam” escapade. All i can say at this point of time is that we can wait and see the reactions and return back we get from everyone in this regard. To every bold step there is a bold reaction indeed.

    This is illiteracy, nothing else. Why go to peer fakeers for jins/kids in the first place ?

    I think there is no advantage in showing all these stuffs on media, those people will get more alert and will do all their haramkari more carefully, instead of showing them on tv …proper action should be take to arrest those haramkhor, and if they want to show it on tv they should show the face so that the ppl would know who are those ppl.
    Everybody knows what is happening in our society so then whats the use of showing it on tv ?

    I my opinion its a staff of Geo tv who are doing all these to make their channel more popular, otherwise if he is a someone else Gumnam he could have posted the original video on youtube or google video.

    Untill and unless govt. will not take proper action to catch those culprits and punish them, nothing will change, and I dont agree with all those phone callers who says that we hope everyone would be Gumnaam in future. Geo has added those phone calls in this video bcoz they are praising geo.

    i think initially geo’s own staff is “Gumnaam” while they’re encouraging others to shot similar vdos when mobile with cams are too common and every day in our daily lives we come accross these corrupt offcials and social ills , so they just want it to become a phenomenon.. KhiTorPitt rightly pointed out the crooks will become more careful after seeing all this and guess what in the first episode a Lahore highcourt official was shown taking bribe to grant bail to a murderer now that court and taken sou moto action against GEO for contempt of court… thats the problem with us… highlight some thing bad and they’ll put pressure on you… taking any thing negative about army or courts could land you in lot of trouble… whereas we all know how much corruption is rampant in both these institutions…

    A full bench of the Lahore High Court issued contempt of court notice on Friday to the Geo TV channel for telecasting a programme in which some court officials were accused of being corrupt.
    The programme, Gumnam, on Jan 12 showed the court officials taking bribe to settle a bail matter. The bench asked all respondents, including Mir Shakilur Rehman, Mir Ibrahimur Rehman, Nasir Baig Chughtai, Sohail Abbasi, and Haider Jinnah of Geo, Shafiq Awan of another TV channel, Mohsin Irfan of Sheikhupura and Faisal Manzoor of Samanabad, Lahore, to appear in person before the court on Feb 16
    The bench is headed by Justice Syed Zahid Husain and includes Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa, Justice M. A. Shahid Siddiqui, Justice Syed Shabbar Raza Rizvi and Justice Syed Sajjad Hussain Shah.
    The court said that Punjab Additional Advocate General Muhammad Hanif Khatana submitted that the channel had manipulated facts in the programme in order to malign and tarnish the image of the court in public eye. According to him, the main focus of the programme was that an accused was granted bail by the court on medical grounds although no medical certificate issued by any hospital or doctor had been appended to his bail application nor any such material had been produced before the court at the time of hearing of the application.

    I agree with KhiTorPitt that this is all about money, to make geo tv more popular. However, some good can come out of it, if someone takes an action after watching this.

  8. fazeel (unregistered) on February 4th, 2007 @ 6:18 am

    First of all I thanked MB for the videos.Well its a really bitter stuff.I appreciate Geo’s effort even they just want to make money. MB if you find more videos please do post here…Well KHITORPITT,if those people will alert of those videos then our common people can be alert from those fake fakeers(I really hope so)….

    Sorry to be off topic here but I would greatly appreciate it if anyone is aware of any NGOs (preferably Canadian) working in Karachi?

    I would greatly appreciate any help.

  10. MB (unregistered) on February 4th, 2007 @ 9:41 am

    @Faraz :
    Any particular reason for Canadian NGO ?
    Why dont you contact Edhi, they sure know many & must have contacts.

  11. Zaash (unregistered) on February 4th, 2007 @ 11:14 am

    Whats the end result of all these episodes ??

    Any action yet…..??

    i guess this gumnaam is more interested in publicity otherwise he shud hv contacted somebody from law enforcement rather than GEO TV, what did he get after braodcasting this on TV, maybe law enforcement could hv done so far on this.

  12. d0ct0r (unregistered) on February 4th, 2007 @ 3:09 pm

    gumnaam is not a single person… they(geo) wants every one with camera phone to be gumnaam and highlight the issues that we face every day…

  13. alias (unregistered) on February 4th, 2007 @ 3:12 pm

    And Geo’s being called to court for their videos too. Read Saturday’s Dawn.

  15. KhiTorPitt (unregistered) on February 4th, 2007 @ 10:22 pm

    Mr. Gumnaam, I have a question for you.
    What were you doing at the time when that innocent girl was being raped?

    You were making a movie ? Instead you could have saved her from that shaitan.

  16. Faraz (unregistered) on February 4th, 2007 @ 10:58 pm

    MB: Canadian because I’m based in Canada and will be traveling to Pakistan for the summer.

    Thanks for the idea of contacting Edhi Foundation.

    Its a publicity stunt. Geo will never telecast if it contains identifiable major players or any body in government or army.. what good will it make to identify a low ranked policeman accepting bribe?
    Geo can never dare to become Tehelka who caught a minister red handed because its traditionally government chamcha and partner in crimes by hiding news.

    Thank You “Geo” for a daring production. The people in the video such as the rapist child molester peer should face immediate charges by the law enforcement agencies & preferably be jailed for life.

    Also most of the bloggers who have commented on this so far should also be jailed and punished for being ignorant & incompetent. Rather then getting shocked and taking emergency action they are talking bull shit like “Why go to peer fakeers for jins/kids in the first place?

    The questions people should be asking are: Why do such criminals so called peer exist in our society even today and how can we terminate such crimes?

    This is a criminal act (if real) and legal action is needed. On the “20 year old whisky” discussion all the Mullahs were going nuts and here where we have a real crime everyone seems pretty ok n relaxed, what are we? a nation of idiots?

    Wake up & eliminate such dirty acts from our society.

    @ KhiTorPitt: Good comment

  21. sooban (unregistered) on February 5th, 2007 @ 1:17 pm

    will this stand up in court?
    can they be prosecuted, cant gumnaam tell geo which person it was and then with the help of police they catch the guy and put him on public trial . Geo can cover it as another publicity stunt , but it might scare other fakeers frm deceiving ppl and raping innocent girls.

  22. KhiTorPit (unregistered) on February 6th, 2007 @ 12:40 am

    I have another question for you Gumnaam,
    When the Geo tv didnt telecast your movie clips since long time, why didnt you approach some other channels like ARY or AAJ ?

    @MB, I would appreciate if you will update us with the proceedings of the cases identified by Gumnaam, sepcially I am waiting to see when that stupid Peer is going behind the bar.

  23. MB (unregistered) on February 6th, 2007 @ 1:44 am

    Well, guys personally i think its GEO’s own stunt. But even if that’s true what’s wrong with it if the objective is to highlight issues. As for the publicity, well GEO has full right to get what it deserves so it’s useless saying anything on it.

    Now as for the criminals, i wish this gumnaam or GEO could have some info on the whereabouts of these criminals and could pass it on to the law enforcement agencies.
    Alright i know what many of you thinking. You will say the same thing, like what the police will do, it wont do any good and all that but is there any alternative except going along the official ways to bring them to justice. After all, any solution has to come from and by the same people around us.

    Well I am trying to see if I can find any info on it. And I second to what you said regarding ARY and others. This guy should have passed it onto many channels so that they could have positive competition on best presenting it on air. May be GEO has censored quite a material from it.

    Editor of Siasat Urdu Daily Zahid Ali Khan. He has been found in possession of 25 acres of Assigned land on which a Big Bungalow is constructed and also has a Mango Orchad. This w as exposed by the Zee TV Teulgu News Channel in which the channel showed a picture of the bungalow which was sealed by the Government and the 25 acres of Farm house which is located in Ankapali which is near to Mannaguda in Poddar Mandal Of Ranga Reddy District. The estimated price of the land ranges between 30 to 50 Lakh rupees per Acre here and a farmer named Manakim has claimed that he has the patta passbook for the said land .which is XIV-B 474923, he says he has taken a loan on this land also but said that when he approached the RDO the Area MRO directed him to get the land back but when he approached the present owners of the land, he was mishandled by the owners goons. He has vehemently denied that he hasn’t sold his land to anyone infact he was pressurized to give his passbook Mandal Revenue Officer Ganesh Babu says Govt has allotted each farmer with 5acres but infact these lands have gone into wrong hands and the govt will take back all the lands from illegal holders. This land controversy has backfired on the editor seriously since he is supporting the Communist Parties in Andhra Pradesh whose slogan “Poor man’s land in rich man’s hand “is actually aimed against the MIM , but unfortunately it is only advertising the actions of their leaders. And not of the MIM. So all said and done is it not better that these media barons look into their affair and straighten them out, rather than throw dung on others.

    Nice info URDU NEWS SERVICE but we can either look at glass half full or half empty. Knowing very well that we don’t have even access to see the glass our only hope is anything from anyone (no matter what the intentions were) that can do any good anyone here. ALLAH has his own ways of doing things. Even good things come out of bad events so good result can be a product of evil intentions. We all know these media walas manipulate info and news for their interests but is there any other hope ?
