BOL braces illegal and unlawful attempts for advocating truth
The channel also gave exclusive coverage to the assassination attempt on former prime minister Imran Khan.
BOL News is one of the most beloved media organizations in Pakistan and has been the favorite of the nation owing to its true journalistic approaches.
The channel lately has been going through a lot for advocating truth and accuracy. Multiple illegal attempts were made against the media organization and the channel has to go through bans, threats, license cancellations, and bans on transmissions.
However, the organization never let these threats tame its spirit and continued standing its ground.
BOL News was forced to leave its employees – Sami Ibrahim and Jameel Farooqui – in their dark times as FIRs were registered against them but the channel never let them go through all alone. The channel made it clear that it has been in thick and thin with its employees and also issued a press release in this regard underscoring the policy of the channel of not expelling the employees on the wish of anyone.
“We will not compromise on the freedom of Information/Press and the integrity of Pakistan. We will air whatever for the interest and benefit of the Nation as protected under the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.”
Moreover, attempts were made to downtrodden the channel on occasions like when Sabir Shakir was given chance as an analyst when Siddiqui Jan and Makhdom Shahabuddin were made part of the family, when BOL stood for the assault on Azam Swati and raised its voice for justice and when the channel started covering the PTI-led Azadi march for the sake of the nation.
The channel also gave exclusive coverage to the assassination attempt on former prime minister Imran Khan. As a result, the channel was shut down multiple times, threatened, and forced to work against the morals and ethics of journalism.
The channel has issued a press release in this regard maintaining that the organization has been braving illegal attempts by different State departments and they are now trying to confine Shoaib Shaikh to his home so that he could not present in the Court and resultantly Court will recall the suspension order and issue warrant against him.

Different state institutions also tried to rule BOL with a rod of iron but the channel didn’t give up on the freedom of journalism and only asked the nation to pray for its strength and well-being.
The channel is once again making it clear to the people of Pakistan that it will not turn its back on the nation and will keep working for the freedom of information and freedom of journalism.
