PESHAWAR: The Express Tribune plans to serve a legal notice on The Statesman for plagiarizing their content.
The Statesman, a daily from Peshawar run by the Mashriq Group of Newspapers, reproduced a story originally published by The Express Tribune on June 22.
The Tribune story titled “Ephedrine case: PHC grants 7-day protective bail to Shahbuddin’ was filed by Umer Farooq, the newspaper’s Peshawar correspondent. It first went up on tribune.com.pk.
However, much to everyone’s surprise, The Statesman reproduced that story under the byline of their reporter Rahimullah Shah. (http://www.statesman.com.pk/city/more.htm)
Those in the know of this development tell JournalismPakistan.com the Tribune Editor Kamal Siddiqui has been informed of this matter and initiating legal action is being considered.
I have keenly followed JournalismPakistan.com since its launch in 2009. Over the years, it has become Pakistan’s top media site, popular among journalists and media watchers. The credit for this goes to its Editor and Publisher Imran Naeem Ahmad who has managed it professionally over the past seven years. Journalists are not always fair and objective when writing about the media or about other journalists but Imran Naeem is both fair and objective. I wish JournalismPakistan.com the very best. – Anwar Iqbal, Washington Correspondent, Dawn
