- Shaista Lodhi got MAFIA STYLE response to her recent email to Mir Shakeel in August demanding her salary in accordance with her employee contract with Geo Network
- Geo replied to the legitimate demand by suing Shaista (Suit No. 1425/2014)for damages citing her responsible as the host of the blasphemous show
“What do you expect when you are cohorting with a venomous snake? It will make others abandon you and one day it will bite you in your own a**!” said my friend who used to work as a stylist at Geo Entertainment while talking about the infamous Shaista Lodhi-blasphemy fiasco.
Shaista Lodhi (previously known as Shaista Wahidi) became a household name for being the exuberant host of the morning shows, more recently at Geo TV Network. However, the same stint at Geo that brought her fame almost destroyed her personal and onscreen life inconsolably.
With the recently surfaced EMAIL Conversation, Mir Shakeel has left Shaista Lodhi alone in the line of fire facing the consequences of the backlash of doing a show that construed anti-Islamic and blasphemous sentiments – but also has added insult to injury by GEO suing Shaista Lodhi itself singling her out to be the responsible person for getting the blasphemous content on air.
Email of Shaista wahidi authenticated by Mir Shakeel himself by submitting it in Suit No. 1425/2014 filed in Sindh High Court!!!
It is no hidden truth that the show was totally orchestrated and planned by Mir Shakeel, who has Veena Malik on his Dubai payroll since the time she let the Indian Media published her nude photos with “ISI” tattooed on her arms. Mir Shakeel was equally responsible for that stint at that time as he is now for this one except for the fact that this time he is totally exposed!
The recent email of Shaista from August 2014 makes startling revelation about how GEO treats rather mistreats its employees no matter what they have delivered in the past for the GEO Mafia. Employees at GEO/Jang group and their family members are questioning that if this treatment is given to the top celebrity like Shaista then how they would deal with employees who do not have celebrity status and are place at middle or junior layers in the organization??
In the email to Mir Shakeel-ur-Rehman, Shaista insisted that she has been “abandoned” and faced “insulting, callous and degrading” response from her previous employer, even leading to her landlord sending her notice of eviction due to non-payment by her employer as per the contract. She also goes on to reveal that she will not hold back any information regarding the incident (allegedly the involvement of Mir Shakeel in blasphemy fiasco in her show) even claiming to go “all out” if denied her contractual rights and warned of the “consequences which [she] will still want to avoid”.
However, Mir Shakeel ur Rehman – being the master manipulator and blackmailer of his own legion, inversely sued Shaista Lodhi in Sindh High Court! Under the Suit No. 1425/2014 Independent Media Corporation Vs. Shaista Lodhi, the applicant (Independent Media Corporation) goes to blame the defendant, Shaista Lodhi as the one to blame as the host of the show due to which “religious feelings of many Muslims got hurt.” Thus accepting in the court on oath that the feelings of many Muslims got hurt by that program.
My friend quipped, “Shaista got bit badly by the Baray Mir Sahab! She knew what she was doing while doing that Veena Malik controversial show. She was reluctant to pursue it but she was assured thoroughly by Mir Shakeel not to worry. Look, who is the biggest of her worry now – Mir Shakil himself! Oh the irony!”
