"We don’t do business, we do true journalism”: Bol News Co-chairperson Shoaib Shaikh

Amid intense pressure, Bol News continues to uphold the principles of real journalism and maintain its integrity in pursuit of showing the truth, CEO BOL News Shoaib Ahmed Shaikh said in a statement.

“(Because) We don’t do business, we do true journalism,” he stated. He said Bol Network was being targeted.

He said there is one enemy behind the conspiracies against Arshad Sharif, Imran Riaz Khan, Sami Ibrahim and PTI chairman Imran Khan.

“Arshad Sharif was the pioneer of true journalism. He did not shy away from sacrificing his life,” he said, adding the memorial is just a small gesture to honour the renowned journalist. He also announced to make the memorial inaugurated by Arshad Sharif’s mother soon.

Moreover, Shoaib Shaikh said that false cases of fraud and cheating were lodged against Axact, one of the largest IT companies in the world. He said no evidence was found against the company for years and the prosecutor had also claimed that no crime was committed. They could find no complainant against the company, he said.

He said a physical remand is granted in a fraud case but the authorities dragged the case for over 18 months and reached no conclusion.

Shoaib Shaikh said fake cases were lodged, bank accounts were seized, vehicles were confiscated and even cases were registered against his mother and wife.

He vowed to remain steadfast in the face of adversity and said those who are on the right track and do not cower down face such false cases. “Arshad Sharif, Sami Ibrahim, Imran Riaz and Imran Khan were examples of such people,” he said.

Furthermore, he claimed that Axact was responsible for 82% of the Total IT Exports of Pakistan. Out of $432 million, Axact was behind $325 million IT exports, he added.

He said the company was bringing foreign exchange into the country. He said the current state of the economy is due to the treatment meted out to those bringing investment to Pakistan.
