The team at Bolo Bhi is thrilled to announce the launch of ” The Bolo Bhi Show”. As part of our project “Alliance for Access”, funded by Open Society Foundation, a nationwide coalition of academics, banks, civil society, entrepreneurs, business groups, Internet service providers & telecom companies have come together to discuss the Right To Access. In partnership with Business Plus, the show will host discussions on Internet policy, censorship, privacy & larger role ICTs in the mainstream media.
Hosted by Ayesha Tammy Haq, the episodes will air every Friday at 8 PM on the Business Plus channel, with a viewership of over 22 million.
The twelve episodes will also highlight various instances of Internet censorship, surveillance & ad hoc blocking of communications in Pakistan, as well as bring on the diverse voices to shed light on the need & importance of open access and security for various segments of the society.
