13. He appoints KPMG as auditors to check PTV’s financial position (to blackmail his predecessor) and leaks the story to the press. However he sends the auditors back after a secret dinner meeting with ex MD Yousaf Baig Mirza. The KPMG has to be paid Rs 1 million as per the contract nevertheless.

PTV professionals ask when will this reign of terror end?



  1. Investigative Person

    Very interesting to know about the inside information of PTV. It is a shame that an organization with a history of dopatta-clad policy for women on screen is too different from inside. From your website I knew about the relationship of Shazia Sikandar and Shakoor Tahir. Is it really true?

  2. nadeem

    i use to work for PTV now in states, i am not shocked by this sex scandels thing, if any one had courage to say truth just tell me one male or female name who’s not involved in any sex scandel if he or she works there, even the old people who at the age of 50’s and 60’s doing sex in inside PTV studios, what you say about the old director Khalil (deceased) Bader khalil husbend he chooping gulla of every PTV watchman (pathan), for God sake start some new topics which is helpfull.

  3. Ok! The new thing which is quite old – the horrible rape of Dr. Shazia Khalid. I was stunned to read the statement of Dr. Shazia before Amnesty International. She narrated that Dr. Shahid Masood and Mohsin Baig were hell bent to send her and her hubby out of Pakistan. Looks like, there is another Shahid Masood beside his media posture. I have not read or heard if ever Dr. Shahid ever spoke on the narration of Dr. Shazia Khalid

  4. Further to my previous post, in my mind following unsolved questions remain so unless Dr. Shahid or someone for his defense explains the same:

    – Is Dr. Masood or was he an agent of Security network that controls the affairs in Pakistan?
    – What was the cause of his saying that Dr. Shazia’s life is not guaranteed for even a day in Pakistan and that they should forget justice on her rape?
    – What made him back off from the repeated promises that he would arrange Canada visa for her and just vanished like a ghost after Dr. Shazia and her hubby were standing and stranding on London footpaths.
    – What restricts him not say a word on this incident?
