BBC not to publish report on Altaf Hussain on website

The BBC has decided not to publish on its website the investigative report on Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and its London based chief Altaf Hussain aired on BBC-2 channel as part of its famous program ‘Newsnight’ a few days ago.

A brief documentary prepared by Owen Benett Jones, a well-known reporter for ‘Newsnight’, was broadcast a few days back on BBC-2. The documentary mainly focused on the investigations being conducted by London Police in connection with mysterious murder of MQM convener Dr Imran Farooq, charges of money laundering and alleged incitement of violence in Pakistan by Altaf Hussain’s speeches.

The spokesman for the well-reputed British based news channel BBC has said that after consultation with its lawyer, the channel has decided not to publish on its website the comprehensive article put together by its reporter Owen Benett Jones. However, he rubbished the reports of BBC facing any kind of pressure in this regard.

The spokesman said the programme on MQM was aired on BBC-2 channel as well as on all of its radio channels.

    the reason could also be charges/arrest is imminent and the report could be part of evidence !

      No. That's not the one in question — that one discussed is gone …
      In fact, BBC is now back-tracking on the one you mentioned by use of such qualifiers as "Newsnight understands that … police … investigating" or "complaints alleging" etc …
      The reporter (Owen Bennett-Jones), in my view, pedaled a lot of bias (against MQM) under some sort of influence or direct contribution in a campaign to return favor …
      But don't worry about Bennett-Jones …
      He stands to make good money in an upcoming book release …
      He would have good life — when in Pakistan, he would be IK's guest house …

      Totally, man. Mr Hussain is such an honourable, decent and may I add charming individual, why would anybody say such horrible things about such a terrific chap?
