Impenitent Maya Khan fired !

Maya Khan, a morning show host who won the anger of people across the country when she approach ''immoral'' couples dating in Karachi's parks has been fired by her channel, Samaa TV. The channel took action against Maya Khan after she failed to give an unconditional apology for her show that was criticized by ordinary Pakistanis and media analysts. Scores of people signed petitions asking Samaa to take action against her for harassing dating couples on her show "Subha Savera Maya Khan Ke Saath".
In response to numerous complaints against Khan over the week, Samaa's chairman Zafar Siddiqi wrote in an email: "We asked Maya to apologise unconditionally which she did not. The CEO asked her to do that on Friday which she refused". Siddiqi, also the founder of CNBC Africa and CNBC Pakistan, said Khan and her team would "receive termination notices" on January 30 and her show would be stopped the same day. Khan initially refused to apologise for her show against dating, in which she was seen asking couples to prove they were married by showing their 'nikahnama' or marriage certificate. Samaa subsequently aired a formal apology for the show and beamed a short clip in which Khan said she had never intended to hurt anyone. Many noted that Khan had shown no remorse for her actions. She was also quoted by the media as saying that the "elite" who do not watch her show were the ones objecting to it. Media analysts said Khan's actions were probably driven by the race for ratings among Pakistan's dozens of TV channels. Some NGOs highlighted the lack of media regulations and said they intended to approach the courts to take action against Samaa TV. Khan invited the wrath of hundreds of Pakistanis when she and her team tried to drill moral sense into young couples dating in parks. She chased couples along with a posse of young and not-so-young women and two "analysts" who gave insight into the dating behaviour of couples and commented on their body language. While most couples made good their escape seeing a horde of women approach them, some countered them bravely. "Do your parents know that you are here?" Maya Khan asked a couple perched on a bench. "Do you know what people think of couples who date like this? Do you know how bad it is for the reputation of girls to be seen like this?" she charged. Samaa chairman Siddiqi said he hoped the action taken by his channel against Khan would settle the issue. But media analysts said the episode had only highlighted the need for self-regulation by Pakistan's news and entertainment channels.

Pakistan beat England in 2nd test by 72 runs in Dubai

Pakistan beat England with a sensational second innings bowling performance at Abu Dhabi.Pakistan defeated England by 72 runs.Pakistan has now undefeated lead 2-0 over England. Pakistan win by 72 runs You can criticise England, and that certainly has its part to play, but what a fantastic bowling effort by Pakistan. Abdur Rehman and Saeed Ajmal were brilliant. With some turn in the pitch, superb control and variation, and the DRS, that was an incredibly tough examination for any side. England failed it miserably. A lot of English batsmen played back when they should be going forward, and again they look unsure of the length - let alone picking the dreaded doosra.

It was a superb Test match, England were on top for large parts of it, but it only takes a few minutes of mayhem. England are still no closer to solving their woes against spin in subcontinental-style conditions, but let's not dwell too much on that. It was a real treat to watch two spinners of that quality doing their thang. Honourable mention goes to the two onfield umpires, who were both magnificent, and hardly put a foot wrong all match.
Crazy presentation ceremony, by the way: there's an award for most sixes, most boundaries, one for performance of the match and one for man of the match. Baffling. All the winners of these mini awards get a 500 dollar cheque. Woop. Don't spend it all at once.
Strauss pays tribute to Pakistan, but doesn't say much of note. He admits that maybe they should have tried to get going a bit quicker.
England were beaten fair and square by a well-led side who batted quite attritionally and backed their spinners to get it done in the second innings. Congratulations to Misbah and his boys, they are 2-0 up in the series with one to play. That kicks off on February 3, please do join us for it. Thanks for following this one with us, have a great weekend of sport. Cheers.
