The reason behind Saleem Safi’s opposition to Imran Khan

Print Friendly and PDF

You must have seen Saleem Safi opposing the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Waziristan march and criticizing the party during a GeoNews talk show  Lakin on Sunday, whose host Sana Bucha always conducts shows only to malign the Imran Khan’s party.

Now a days Mr Safi is putting efforts to appear as a realistic and unbiased journalist, though he has completely  failed  in creating  such an image.

The arrogant journalist considers himself champion and an authority on Afghan and FATA related affairs, although it was Hamid Mir who had conducted Osama bin Laden’s interview not Safi Sahib.

He also  considers himself the owner of tribal region for being a “Qabaeli” and is not ready to let anybody in Pakistan to worry about their Pakhtun brethren in the tribal areas.

During the talk show he said he had presented victims of US drone attacks in his show “Jirga” and apprised the world about the impact of dangerous machines.

Safi said that Imran Khan could also highlight the issue in Islamabad and there was no need to march on Waziristan, adding that the PTI’s move was only to garner votes of tribesmen and a political stunt.

Now the point is that when Salim Safi is convinced that the drones are killing  innocents in the tribal region and  he had highlighted the issue through inviting the victims in his show then why  he advocated use of drones before Senate’s  Defence committee’s  historical open hearing last month. Following is the link to Dawn newspaper’s news item where in the last paragraph you could find Saleem Safi’s views on drones.[Senate body’s rare foray into military matters]

Yes, it was Mr Saleem Safi, Thekadar of tribal affairs, who corroborated his argument, saying that the drones were killing al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorists in the tribal region and they were being wrongly criticized.

Why doesn’t  Mr Safi dare to support drone attacks on TV talk shows instead of criticizing Imran Khan, who is a staunch opponent of the drones and openly says what he wants to say.

You will never find Saleem Safi opposing drones on TV shows but i tell you that the man is a supporter of drone attacks and dose not care whether innocents are being killed or otherwise.

He should not become a hypocrite and openly support the drones if he considers they are effective in eliminating terrorists.

 The only reason behind his criticism of Imran Khan is  that the cricket star turned politician opposes drone attacks and military operations in tribal region near Afghan border.

    salim safi is not a straight man and there is no comparision of khan with the status quo parties and safi showed an imature attitude even on qadris episode by becoming a clear party which is against journalistic norms.

    yah that’s true, he is hypo and biased journalist. what ever they do against IK, inshAllah is our asset, icon for Pakistan, and next Prime Minster of Pakistan, should shame on them what they are doing…, my leader create awareness for Drone attacks and now international media and ppl realized that its dong wrong. No one highlighted the research report about NY Law school published the facts of drones. As a foreign Pakistan, we love you IK and prod to be Pakistani because of IK.

    I think it happens in politics and journalism (particularly in sub-continent). Every one has right to speak about issues. If you think Mr. Safi is opposing PTI then what you think about Mr. Haroon Rasheed who is always a PTI spokes person (and failed to pretend that he’s a unbiased journalist). Similarly don’t you see the affiliation or sampathies of Mr. Kashif Abbasi, Mr. Hamid Mir and other journalists. PTI is not a group of angels and not its all policies are good enough that everyone favor it. Mostly these policies seems to be good in talk shows but are these realistics then i am sure any sensable person will say NO.

    The problem with PTI followes is that they have no passions. They are unable to bear critisim and I think the main reason is Mr. Khan becase throughout his career (as a cricketer and politicians) he never accepted critisim and he takes the full responsibility of good out comes but always held othes responsible for failures.

    I guess people like Mr. Khan are non trust worth

    Saleem Safi, your a complete fool. you seriously need some common sense. When we have people like you in our media we dont need the drone strikes because traitors like you would never let anyone do any good thing. I do understand that you are trying to get better rating because noone watches your show and your trying to make some maal through Kora League but remember this is a very sensitive issue and not your money making scheme. your stupid remakrs have some reaction and other muslims lives. but i know you are blind foolded by money so you cant see the bigger picture. Shame on you and also shame on the anchors who give you a platform to speak hate speech!!

      Well let’s check saleem safi’s record. He was with Jamat i Islami in Past. When they came to power he started writing against Molana Diesel and Akram Durrani and JTI (Whom he is quoting now a days). Now as imran Khan is rising day by day by his character he is talking about him. Actually he is just going for his ratings. By opposing imran khan he is been invited in shows and his rating is going up. He has no moral values. Just watch recent programs he is been invited to. 
      Plus he is not an properly educated journalist. Becoz his education is BA and straight specialization in talking more and more…That’s great.
      May allah give all of us strength to speak the truth
      Thanks

    Shame on writers who change their stance day and night. They are hypocrites of worst kind that deceive nation. He is among those who try to discredit journalism and give it a bad name. 

  10. M Khan says:

    He is just trump. He has no weightage . He is just barking and speaking Noora league language as he complaint that imran khan did not offer him food when he invited by him. And next time Noora league invited him and they full his stomach. such people are characterless , biased and greedy. They should not be given any importance. They are traitors and the only mean in life for them is just money.

  11. Sincer_dost says:

    saleem safi just want publicity on media and social media instead of saying that we should appreciate such movement from political parties and we will welcome pmln nd anp etc too to highlight the issues of tribal areas, but safi dont look to the attention of international media toward tribal area problems but he is focussing on imran that he is doing for political point scoring
