تقریباً دو سال قبل چیف جسٹس ثاقب نثار نے ارشدشریف کو ان کے ایک پروگرام کی وجہ سے سپریم کورٹ میں طلب کیا تھا اور عدالت میں ان کی سخت بے عزتی کی تھی۔ اس خبر کو کسی بھی میڈیا چینل نے رپورٹ نہیں کیا تھا اور صرف صدیق جان نے یہ خبر تفصیل کے ساتھ اپنے ولاگ میں رپورٹ کی تھی۔ ملاحظہ کیجئے صدیق جان کا ارشد شریف پر کیا گیا وہ ولاگ
About two years ago, Chief Justice Saqib Nisar had summoned Arshad Sharif to the Supreme Court because of one of his programs and had severely insulted him in court.

The most recent short video / vlog in the Full HD episode of “Siddique Jaan.” The subject of today’s video clips / vlog is “Did Arshad Sharif Beat Siddique Jan Because of This Video.” This is not the same as yesterday’s problem.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued a show-cause notice to ARY News host #ArshadSharif for discussing sub-judice matters on his talk show Power Play.
A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar had taken up a suo motu notice regarding the programme’s August 28 episode in which an affidavit submitted by former president Asif Ali Zardari regarding his assets was discussed.
“Did Zardari submit a false affidavit in the NRO [National Reconciliation Ordinance] case?” was among the questions raised and discussed during the programme.
The TV host, who appeared in court along with Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry, was taken to task by the CJP for discussing the case during the show.
“How can you discuss cases being heard in courts [during your programme]?” Justice Nisar asked, addressing Sharif.
He recalled that the top court has also advised the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against inadvertently or intentionally defaming individuals who are subject to accountability inquiries.
“Comments like these [those made in the show] are prejudicial to court proceedings,” the CJP remarked, warning Sharif of action against him. He also termed the discussion akin to “interference in court matters”.
The top judge also questioned whether the TV programme was “sponsored” by anyone, asking: “On whose direction did you conduct the programme?”
“This is a straightforward [case of a] media trial,” observed Justice Ijazul Ahsan.
After hearing all arguments, the court issued a show-cause notice to the ARY News host. Notices were also issued to the attorney general, Pakistan Broadcasters Association and Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra).
The bench directed Pemra to present clips of the programme Power Play in court. The hearing of the case was adjourned until September 12.
