Pakistan govt sacks state TV chief after broadcast gaffe

NSD Logo
Pakistan government has removed Hasan Immad Mohammadi as acting chief of state-run television PTV after a caption read "Begging" instead "Beijing" during a broadcast of Prime Minister Imran Khan's visit to China. Pakistan Prime Minister was in Beijing seeking financial aid to help end a spiralling balance of payments crisis.
 
PTV apologised after "Begging" ran on screens for 20-25 seconds while Imran Khan was making a speech, kicking off a debate on social media as to whether the misspelling was deliberate. Imran Khan has been criticising Pakistan's many international bailouts and decried previous leaders as roaming the world with a begging bowl.
