'Aap Ka Haq' scales new heights, Shekhar Suman on another fact finding mission


Shekhar Suman on another fact finding mission

'Aap Ka Haq', the path-breaking show which ace showman Shekhar Suman anchors on JANMAT, India's first views channel, is clearly on a roll.

Positioned as a show that proactively engages in the problems of common people, 'Aap ka Haq' walks that extra mile with the victims, the persecuted, the forgotten and downtrodden and actively seeks a resolution of their problems with the help of government authorities, NGOs and the civil services. In short, 'Aap ka Haq' not only listens to your plight but seeks to alleviate it.

In the past few weeks that JANMAT has been on air, Shekhar Suman has spearheaded sensitive issues that have had far-reaching political and social repercussions. Among them are the Indo-Pak POW issue, the New Delhi Uphaar hall tragedy and the 1984 Delhi Riot victims. Shekhar has sought active closure on issues that have hung fire for decades.

"Aap ka Haq' has begun showing VISIBLE results. After the Delhi Riots episode that went on air on 17th Dec last year, followed up with Shekhar's personal follow-up with concerned authorities, the government has released Rs 700 Crores as compensation for Riot victims in Delhi!! This is an incredible coup for JANMAT.

The episode on police lock-up deaths drew immediate reaction in the form of a PIL filed today before the Supreme Court by leading lawyer, KTS Tulsi. Focussing on the specific case of the deaths of petty thieves Arshad, Meherban and Asif allegedly at the hands of policemen at Kasana police station, Greater Noida, Shekhar Suman talked to Jameel Ahmed, Arshad's father. The bodies of the accused were never found later.

The forthcoming two episodes of "Aap ka Haq' will feature the plight of Commercial sex workers and Bar girls in Mumbai. Chaired by leading psychiatrist, Dr Harish Shetty, President of the Bar Owner's association, Manjit Singh Sethi, Varsha Kale who is President Bar Girls' Union, Dr IS Gilada, MLA Vivek Patil, and advocates Anjani Kumar Singh and Wasim Pathan, this promises to be an explosive show.

To be aired at 10.00 p.m. on Saturday, 14th January, this episode will have real-life accounts of CSWs and bar girls - the problems they face, the interference and trauma inflicted by pimps and police alike, and their desperate bid to lead normal existences.

Positioned as India's first Views Channel, JANMAT has brought a fresh breeze in the country's TV viewing landscape. JANMAT is a 24-hour current affairs channel targeted towards the discerning Indian audience. JANMAT has an ear to the ground, and allows the common man to express his grievances for swift redressal.

Don't miss 'Aap ka Haq' on JANMAT.
