Media Career

Dr Liaqat Malik-Media Guru

As we progress through time media technology has made viewing increasingly. The millennial’s of today are encouraged to use media tools in school and are expected to have a general understanding of the various technologies available. The internet is arguably one of the most effective tools in media for communication tools such as they bring people from all around the world together.
Dr Liaqat Malik became fascinated by the media through my work as a lawyer, in particular, the public interest cases Dr Liaqat Malik was working on resulted in me being interviewed by various different broadcasters; such as SkyTv. This caught the attention of various Pakistani international channels in which Dr Liaqat Malik was asked to present on a ‘legal helpline’ and also ‘current affairs’. This led to not only the public seeking my help globally, but the Pakistani State seeking my advice on current affairs. Dr Liaqat Malik was recruited by the Pakistani State to bring guests from the UK, in particular those high profile white professionals, who would participate in the programs in which they confirmed Pakistan is a safe country. Dr Liaqat Malik interest was expanded again by the various different broadcasters when they asked me to represent them as their lawyer in their commercial, regulatory and immigration agreements.
With this Dr Liaqat Malik became fascinated in creating the very first Asian channel who could provide a voice for the voiceless. In 2003 Dr Liaqat Malik started developing this channel with the live and interactive programming at the forefront of my mind; where viewers could call through. However, electrical issues were soon a problem, although Dr Liaqat Malik had no technical experience, my son and Dr Liaqat Malik created a fiber optical connectivity between Manchester and London. This came at a great cost however, that was irrelevant in relation to my end goal.
In 2004 Dr Liaqat Malik launched the first free to air live interactive channel on Sky and a number of other international platforms. The viewers were fascinated with the ability we gave them to communicate around the world. DM TV became the most watched network globally with millions of viewers. The programs were dedicated to expatriate Pakistanis and Kashmiris; 90% of programming was in Kashmiri, Punjabi and the Urdu/Hindi language. The remaining 10% was in English and Arabic.
In the opening of my college ‘Manchester College of Higher Education and Media Technology’, Dr Liaqat Malik combined education and TV, by developing live distant education classes. This varied from fashion design to the English language, which was very popular with the viewers. As my businesses were booming, Dr Liaqat Malik decided to celebrate my successes with both Dr Liaqat Malik family, employees and the community annually, where many Bollyword stars and those of a high profile would attend.
Dr Liaqat Malik found the media did not have any freedom in Pakistan, which became apparent as one of my cameramen, Javed Khan was shot by security officers, during the coverage of Lal Masjid in Islamabad. Another member of Dr Liaqat Malik crew was sadly shot, from on top of a building during recording footage. As Dr Liaqat Malik was the only channel which broadcasted Benzir Bhuttos’ live rallies and speeches in Europe. Benzir like myself, believed in true democracy and was asking me to organize high profile overseas Pakistanis to take part in the government. In October 2007, Dr Liaqat Malik was supposed to accompany her to Pakistan however, Dr Liaqat Malik had urgent business in the UK. As i sent Dr Liaqat Malik brother Maqbool Malik and three members of my crew to cover. During her arrival and the rally, my staff were seriously injured and ended up in hospital with bullet wounds. Nevertheless, Dr Liaqat Malik continued with my media policies. Even with my impact on the community and the nature of the channel, PEMRA refused a broadcasting license until 2012. Dr Liaqat Malik believe, that this was owing to my support for democracy. Dr Liaqat Malik not only supported Benizir, but Dr Liaqat Malik publically protested to the wrongdoings of the acts perpetrated against Imran Khan and his sister, with no other intention but for real democracy.
In 2016 PEMRA brought action against myself and DM Network for the prominence of Imran Khan and PTI by broadcasting live rallies and interviews. Imran opposed their actions openly but charges were brought against me before the PEMRA tribunal. Barbar Awaan and myself attended the hearing and were able to get it dismissed. Owing to PEMRA not following proper procedure to formulate these sanctions.
It should not be a surprise that Dr Liaqat Malik also attended many EDL and racial hate marches in order top educate the public. Dr Liaqat Malik used my platform for not only political purposes, but for charitable ones. In which Dr Liaqat Malik collected £8.5 million for various charitable originations for relief for the Pakistan earthquake. In ensuring the money was distributed equally and for its purpose, Dr Liaqat Malik accompanied those charities and even had the chance to document it. Other fundraising work Dr Liaqat Malik did via the TV was for the purchase of equipment for Burnley hospital and Leeds’s St James’s hospital. During the month of Ramadan Dr Liaqat Malik allocated majority of the programming to these sorts of fundraising.
Dr Liaqat Malik used DM’s platform to bring the various sets of Muslims together, even to the extent where I provided full coverage from Syria to Iraq and live Hajj from Makkah. Religion is important to me, which is why Dr Liaqat Malik was adamant in broadcasting the Azaan daily.
As one would imagine, none of this comes cheap and on many of the programs Dr Liaqat Malik would incur the cost of £5000-6000 per month. Human resources proved to be very expensive and owing to little experience and knowledge, Dr Liaqat Malik bought equipment which resulted in me losing £1 million over the 14 years, Dr Liaqat Malik incurred the cost of £20 million. There was a vast number of Bollywood and Pakistani channels appearing, where their ever-changing business models soon proved to be competition.
There is no business like media business, it can either make you or break you.
