I am a grown up working lady, even though I have banned TV from my life I am still a victim of Media Harassment. If you are wondering how here is my story. It’s been years I have totally taken TV out of my life but my parents tune into TV and they watch nothing but news channels specially GEO. They watch it 24 hours first thing they do when then wake up in the morning Fajr time to be precise, its GEO till they go to sleep at night.
They are scared to hell of Karachi city condition, they know exactly where bomb blasted, how many kill on streets you name it they have every single update. They live in total depression due to it. Every 10 to 15 minutes there is a bell on my cell phone and giving me updates. In my office, on my way to home, shopping no matter where I may be or how busy I may be in my work, my phone cant stop ringing.
At night and early in the morning I get call from them not to go to work in any condition because there is strike in the city and buses got burnt blah blah blah. My reply to them is Mom – Dad school time is over and I have to go to work any how. I beg them not to watch news channels but in vain. Depression and tension are contagious and the disease is being transmitted into my system by my own parents thanks to GEO TV and the likes.
I go home to my parents every weekend and it’s the same I am being tortured by the news updates from my parents from breakfast till dinner time. Help Me God. Some body ban these news channels for good.
Life would be so peaceful not knowing these exaggerated news coverage or else next thing that I will ban from life would be cell phones, thanks to media harassment.
