Faisal Qureshi’s latest foray into media awareness touches "social awareness", something that he has been involved in from his days at Loose Ends.

I have to say one thing – TV channels have really figured out the art of making good teasers. Check it out below.

The trouble is Faisal, a growing number never have any time to “catch” any show on TV, period – we need it up online so that we can view the episodes ondemand whenever we have the attention to give to such important topics.

  • Kudos! Was an avid viewer of Loose Ends and would love to see such a show back on air again

  • My friend, Ankahi will be available for viewing from its website. It will take about 18 hours to get the shows online. The first show has already been posted. Please keep an eye on http://www.ankahi.tv for the latest.

  • @Ghani Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately it is not possible to go out every night :-) But we try to get on the street whenever possible.

    Right now I do not want to say much but it is hard to resist saying anything at all after watching a beautiful couple of kids with even more beautiful emotion that is so rare especially in Pakistan and sadly I see this very lack in own home and my sadness and anger for it is taken as mental sickness and good for nothing, that most lacking emotion sure is patriotism. Hats off to these kids and blessed are their parent surel as you say.
    Your show goes beyond social awareness, keep it up.

    If only were there two things when it comes to the law, firstly the fear of breaking it and by passing the legal authority, and secondly, implementation of the law given full dedication, there would have been less competency and dishonesty in business and society. However, keeping good faith, the Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) has put forward “Deceptive Marketing Guidelines” which will maintain the Section 10 of the Competition Act, 2010. In order to enforce this part of the law and stop anti-competitive conduct on part of the telecom companies in advertising, the guidelines have been shared with Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and other concerned telecommunication sector members, in …
