ISLAMABAD: Electricity at the Rawalpindi ‘head-office’ of Urdu-language daily Ash-Sharq has been disconnected because of non-payment of bills.
Those aware of the development tell JournalismPakistan.com the said office is actually the newspaper’s bureau and not the head-office as the paper’s print-line claims.
On the other hand they say the Islamabad office in Aabpara, in fact used as the head-office is mentioned as a bureau on the print-line. Insiders say the newspaper’s declaration is for Rawalpindi only.
Ash-Sharq abruptly stopped publishing from Islamabad in April leaving about 40 employees including 13 journalists jobless. Owned by Yasmeen Majeed, the paper had earlier ceased publishing from Karachi in December, reports say.
Meanwhile, reports say the building's owner has sealed the Rawalpindi office, also because of non-payment of monthly rent.
