I am a broadcast journalist with seven years of working experience in Pakistan. I have started my career in journalism with Geo Television, Pakistan’s leading news channel in 2006 and have done research, reporting, coordination and production. There are several reports I have made while working with Geo TV, which has created great impact and led to the solution of the addressed problems.
In production, I have produced the documentary on the assassination of the former prime minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto.
I have also conducted an investigation on Rimsha, a Christian girl who was accused of blasphemy charges in August 2012.
I have also produced talk shows on the issues of youth highlighting the problems faced by them.
When the differences between Jamia Hafsa (religious extremist group) and the government got intensified, I was the first journalist to report from inside their territory.
With Pakistan Television Channel, I have worked for five months and have made numerous reports mostly on the political issues.
Besides, broadcast journalism I have also written articles and news stories both in Urdu and English.
