On 8 Jan. 2008, when President Musharraf was in Multan to open a new PTV channel in Seraiki, president’s security entourage noticed that Secretary Information and Chairman PTV Syed Anwar Mahmood and MD PTV Yousaf Baig Mirza slipped out of their hotel rooms after midnight to spend time in a room that was not on the list of the officially booked rooms for the guests of the ceremony. Secretary Information and MD PTV thought no one knew what they were doing.
What they do not know is that almost the entire Caretaker cabinet ministers or at least those who interact with PTV, came to know next day what was going on. Both gentlemen went to spend time with a young, twenty-something female anchorperson of PTV. Her name is Saadia Afzaal, is a divorced tall and skinny girl who joined PTV a few years back traveling in public transport wagons that ply the roads of capital. But now this young girl receives a monthly salary of Rs. 1,50,000 in addition to highest bonuses in the history of PTV for someone like her worth Rs. 1,00,000, and Rs. 5,600 as telephone allowance. Other newly hired girls, bimbos who don’t know wat ‘news’ is, have been hired for having great ‘assets’. Saadia Afzaal is getting all that money that belongs to the people All this to do a show on TV maybe 2 or 3 times a month. But obviously it is the private shows that really matter.
This is the true story of what is happening at PTV right now where people appointed by Chaudhry Pervez Illahi and President Musharraf have turned Pakistan’s so-called family channel into a ‘whore’ channel and where the news and current affairs department has become the ‘Boobs and Pussy Department’ where you cannot get job if you are a man. A woman can only prosper by using her body more than her mind or brain.
Employees of PTV of all ranks and file openly whisper about these things. You dont have to be investigator to discover these details. I have been first hand witness of what is going on and how a young Pakistani girl can’t progress in PTV without paying sexual favours to four horny bosses at PTV that included Secretary Information (now retired) MD PTV, Director of Current Affairs (DCA) and Chief Editor.
All of them are still in their seats despite change of government except Anwar Mahmood who retired. Someone will say these types of things always happen everywhere. But in PTV Secretary Information and MD PTV never dared do this kind of things publicly and opanly. What made them now do it so boldly is the appointment of a professional ‘pimp’ to do the dirty job of hiring girls and sending them to government high-ups. This professional ‘pimp’ is Agha Masood Shorish, director of current affairs (DCA) at PTV News.
Shorish survived in PTV for five years without any knowledge in TV work simply because of his talents in procuring girls for key senior people. His father was an anti-Bhutto newspaper editor and he himself was appointed in this key position at state channel by none other than Chaudhry Pervez Ellahi and Chaudhry Shujaat Hussian who continually protected Shorish during their government. I am not sure if both of them also received sexual favours from Shorish and I frankly have no proof. They just appointed this man Shorish and then did not interfere. And then to survive without any real expertise in TV work or in journalism Shorish came up with a novel way to secure his job through pimping. He was doing it so discreetly over the past 5 years that no one at PTV really knew about it.
But this all changed in 10 April 2007 when Yousaf Baig Mirza took charge as MD PTV. Baig has a reputation for womanizing. He is a relative of Shahbaz Sharif and was appointed as MD PTV during the government of Nawaz Sharif. When Parvez Musharraf seized power Baig was retained in his post by Anwar Mahmood another longtime secret womanizer. All three of them – Agha Shorish, Yousaf Baig Mirza, Anwar Mahmood – never practised their womanizing openly.
PTV was clean of this dirt until April 2007, the month of the appointment of MD PTV. Secretary Information and MDPTV discovered that Agha Shorish was very bold and courageous in openly hiring and escorting young girls at his spacious PTV office. Shorish had no problem in having three or four young girls hanging around for hours in his office at all times. Employees coming to his office to sign papers were shocked at how these girls are so confident and freely order what they want, make telephone calls.
KFC and Pizza Hut is ordered for them on PTV’s expense. When President Musharraf made his last speech at National Library auditorium in Islamabad before the elections, on 14 February 2008, Shorish walked inside the hall of the auditorium with four or five girls surrounding him. He arrived late and made sure all the senior government officials saw him parading his girls in front of the occupants of the front row seats.
Seeing how bold Shorish is, both secretary Anwar Mahmood and MD Yousaf Baig developed special liking for him. Through Shorish, both of them got passed many favours for their other ‘women friends’ in other departments of PTV whom they could not dare sign paperwork giving them favours. But thanks to Shorish, he was willing to sign any paper giving any favours to any female employee on the mere phone call of the Secretary or the MD without any questions asked.
As it became clear that the government of Gujrat Chaudhrys was coming to end, Shorish intensified his effort to ensure he was not removed from his luxurious seat by making his newly hired girls give special favours to the bosses, like the one he arranged on the occasion of the opening of the Multan Centre of PTV.
Shorish applied for sick leave on 7 and 8 March 2008. Everyone in Current Affairs Department of PTV was surprised that their head was taking a sick leave during an important live TV coverage for the president. Little did they know that he was busy arranging for some fun on the sidelines of the important event in Multan. This scumbaf Shorish spent the past five years not learning one thing about journalism or TV work.
He just made maximum number of contacts and PR work. At one point, MD PTV was so annoyed by this that he banned Shorish from going to Presidency to shoot president programs because did nothing there except make new contacts. No professional journalist and proud Pakistani girl can permit working in this environment.
Since April 2007 PTV current affairs has become den of sex when everyone in Pakistan was busy in judicial crisis PTV management was busy in sex. The management has been protecting the pimp and his other hired girls so much that regular PTV anchorpersons have started openly complaining.
Most recently Saleem Safi a renowned columnist and anchor of the show Saleem Safi Kay Saath on PTV refused to work for PTV and do any shows as long as the pimp was around. He conveyed this directly to MD PTV and other seniors. But Saleem who cares about you. You don’t have a nice chest my friend. Also Ahmad Quraishi and Israr Kassana have resigned due to same reason. Kamran Shahid who is an excellent host has openly warned his bosses why they are giving special favours to girls while hardworking people like him get nothing. This is the result of 8 yrs of enlightend moderation

    this is a lie posted by a coward who does not have the courage or guts to perform this slander directly, because they would surely be sued for defamation against an honest person. It is most likely written by an under achieving corrupt official who was rightly passed over or exposed for being corrupt, and now he does not have the courage to come out and say these lies in-person. I challenge the person who wrote this, pretending to be Anwar Mahmood, to come out in public, and have the guts to expose himself if he has even a smidgen of self-respect - instead you hide in your corner, licking your wounds over your unfulfilled and corrupt life - I pity you.
