Earlier MediaBites posted an article which stated that Emmad Hameed had been appointed Marketing manager due to close links with Najam Sethi rather than his capabilities,
Chairman PCB, Najam Sethi – Destroying institutions with Nepotism
the story was based on a tweet from Mirza Iqbal Baig. MediaBites reached out to Emmad Hameed to find out his side of the story and whether the allegations leveled against him hold any truth. Here’s what he has to say:
“I think it’s a desperate attempt by two so called senior sports journalists who are known for their blackmailing in cricketing quarters. But I don’t want to stress on their reputation I’ll only respond to their laughable attempts of discrediting and defaming me.” Stated Hameed
“Mr. Mirza Iqbal Baig blocked me on Twitter after I confronted him on his accusations against me on his TV show and Twitter at the end of the first PSL season.” Hameed told MediaBites
“I was the media manager of Peshawar Zalmi and at one of the post press conferences Mr. Baig insulted a Zalmi player calling him Do Daant Ka Bakra, the Zalmi management took a strong notice and Mr. Baig was rightfully asked to apologise publicly, since the apology wasn’t made; Mr. Baig was barred from attending Zalmi’s pressers in the tournament.” He further added.
“Mr. Baig continued his venom spewing while targeting me, in his desperation he claimed that I was only hired due to nepotism and repeatedly made silly comments about my personal life and wardrobe including questioning my wearing shorts! Some of the accusations were comical and since he couldn’t trace any incompetence he made a series of personal digs”.
The picture in question was a casual camera frame check with a colleague of mine which I posted and deleted on Facebook in July”. Said the PCB marketing manager.
“Mr. Baig’s trusted lieutenant, it seems is another so called senior sports journalist Mr. Yahya Hussaini who first mentioned the picture in his column in the Urdu Daily Jang published last week.”
Furthermore he added “A day or so after the column Mr. Baig posted the picture which was taken from my Facebook, a clear breach of my privacy, the funny thing is that both aren’t on my friends list on Facebook yet are clearly ‘spying’ and surfing the content I upload! The picture has nothing to do with my professional work, I’ll share the original picture which clearly doesn’t tag anyone or talks about any one and is only banter between me and my friends!” States Hameed
Mr. Baig continues to have me blocked on Twitter his acts are borne of a personal grudge and apparent hatred with me. Mr. Yahya Hussaini is a partner in this malicious campaign, I have offered to make an appearance in both Yahya and Baig’s T.V. shows but of course it seems that they don’t have the courage to face me.
Upon being asked whether he will uphold legal action he stated that he hold the right to take appropriate action in accordance with Cyber laws.
