According to the report of Baaghi TV, Khurram Sindhu, who worked as a cameraman for 12 years in most of the central and local news channels in Lahore, has started selling burgers on a stall.
He says that after working in several news channels, he worked hard to reach the position of a senior cameraman, but now, under the pretext of the financial crisis, the channel owners fired him like hundreds of employees.
According to the news agency Independent Urdu, Khurram said that he was fired from ‘Aap News’ three months ago while his three-month salary arrears were not paid. Khurram told The Independent Urdu that he was in debt when he was fired from his job despite months of hardship.
He looked for a job for three months, but when that didn’t work out. He borrowed some money from friends and started selling small burgers from a stall. On asking where he learned to make the Tikki burger, Khurram sighed coldly and said, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” When it fell on his head, he prepared dal tiki himself and when he was praised by the diners on the first day, he got encouragement.
According to Khurram, on the first day, he was afraid that if people did not buy and eat the bread he had prepared, how would he be able to cover the cost with the loan money? The first-day sales went well and he returned the borrowed money back to his friends.
Those journalist for whom he used to work hard never called him to inquire about his well-being.
During the conversation, Khurram asked how many of the channel owners who are lamenting the financial crisis and making the workers unemployed, have installed stalls to earn their living?
At the same time, he advised unemployed media workers sitting in press clubs and at home that the government, bosses or leaders of journalists’ organizations would do nothing for anyone, they should go out to feed themselves and their children. There is no shame in doing any kind of work.
