Pakistani social media take to GEO TV #GeoBetraysYetAgain

The Geo TV show stars Bollywood music director Shankar Mahadeven (pictured) and singer Shweta Pandit.

Some Pakistani social media users want the Geo TV network to cancel its singing competition “Asia Singing Superstar”.

Pakistani social media users are trying to put pressure on a leading local media network to cancel a singing competition involving Indian judges.

The campaign comes after several events in India involving Pakistanis were disrupted by rightwing group Shiv Sena.

Last month, a concert by popular Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali in the western Indian city of Mumbai was cancelled after the Shiv Sena threatened to disrupt the performance.

Shiv Sena activists also doused the head of an Indian think-tank in black ink in protest at his support for the launch of a book by a former Pakistani foreign minister.
