TV anchorman Mubasher Lucman was threatened on live television after he aired footage of Punjab police storming the houses of Faisalabad residents protesting against the government of Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.

 

Lucman received the threat during his 10 pm prime-time show Khari Baat on ARY News last night.

 

The video of the police action has gone viral on social media. It shows police brutality by the newly formed government of PMLN, the party of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The protesters were out against the acute power crisis in the central Punjab city of Faisalabad, a hub of textile and agriculture. 

During the show, Lucman picked his cell phone and said he just a received a text message in Urdu that said, ‘Apni Khair Manao!’ [Literal translation: ‘Pray for your safety’]. 

After reading the text message, Lucman looked into the camera and addressed Chief Minister Sharif saying he will stay put in Lahore and is ready to face the wrath of the powerful chief minister. 

Lucman did not reveal the identity of the sender of the text message.

Lucman compared Sharif to a pharaoh and asked his producer to show again the footage of Sharif’s police storming the houses of poor Faisalabad residents. The ruthless action by the new government of PMLN, which swept the 2013 general election, has surprised Pakistanis.
