There is nothing hidden that SAMAA TV is not safe for female employees. Women working there have been harassed several times on different occasions.
A radio broadcaster based in Islamabad, Tehreem Muneeba was harassed while working in Samaa FM in 2018. She had quit her job after she was harassed by her colleagues.
Tehreem has called Farhan Mallick, Fahd Haroon, and Naveid Siddiqui as her harassers.
After battling with the harassers for 2 years, and winning the case, Tehreem revealed that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Focal Person on Information Analytics Fahd Haroon had protected her harassers.
On this case, senior journalist Nazir Leghari has said that,
“Such channels like SAMAA TV should have been exposed earlier. Media was quiet, as they belong to the same community, but now the ice has been broken, the true face of SAMAA TV has finally been exposed in front of the whole world”.
He went on to say that,
“Another giant channel will be exposed soon. It will be a shock for everyone as no one has ever imagined indecent things in that channel”.
Leghari did not expose the name yet, but everything will be exposed soon.
A petition has been filed against SAMAA TV in PEMRA to suspend its license.
