In its latest move, Supreme Court has imposed a three-month ban on Dr. Shahid Masood.

A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar was hearing a suo motu case on the anchor’s allegations regarding the barbaric rape and murder of the 7-year-old Zainab.

Banning his ‘Live With Dr. Shahid Masood’ program broadcasted by News One, the CJP remarked that the bench would not sentence him to death as proposed by the anchor himself in his show.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar stated:

“It seems Dr. Shahid Masood does not realize the importance of the elder’s advice as he ridiculed my court officer on the second (after the hearing)”

Eventually, Shahid showed remorse for his mistake and issued an unconditional apology.

CJ Nisar said:

“If you admit your mistake, then, we should ban your television program for three months”

Back in January, Dr. Masood had alleged that the criminal had ties with an influential figure and was part of an international ring. The chief justice had taken notice of the claims and sought a subsequent inquiry by a JIT.

However, the JIT did not find any authenticity to Dr. Masood’s claims.

In a hearing on March 10, Dr. Shahid said that the claims he leveled regarding Zainab murder case were ’emotional dialogues’.

“Being a father, I got emotional and made such statements”
