Khamoshi ka Boycott: Booti Culture and its Relation with Night Packages

Letter published on ProPakistani last week on Telenor’s latest campaign called “Khamoshi ka Boycott” generated lot of buzz in the industry. The writer had a viewpoint which she expressed in her own way – and it was extensively discussed in the comments section.

This criticism on “Khamoshi ka Boycott” didn’t stop there. Today, Mudassar Jehangir a renown telecom journalist, produced a story showing his concerns over the campaign, with highly arguable thoughts.

Here is the link of the story published on ApnaTime 

Along with other things that Mudassar discussed, following point caught my attention. Here’s the crux of what he had to say:

Youth of the country will rely on booti as they remain awake in the nights to avail night packages offered by Telenor and other cellular companies.

Not only this, they remain busy in the days too when they keep themselves engaged with SMSes.

Mudassar Jehangir thinks that Telenor should have abandoned these night packages before launching the campaign if they had indeed wanted to put a cap on Booti culture. 

By the way, we have written in past on night packages, and how they impact the social values and academic performance of the students/youth. Moreover, Punjab and KPK’s provincial assemblies have passed bills to ban nights packages.

Such kind of questions being thrown at Telenor is very natural, based on their own slogan: “Khamoshi ka Boycott”. This is just because company made a strategic mistake of coupling a CSR initiative with the brand itself.

We all understand that at the end of the day Telenor is a business entity and it has to earn money to sustain – but you will agree with me that businesses do unethical things too; night packages being one of them.

With “Khamoshi ka Boycott”, Telenor may face other similar questions in future too.

  • Atif Shahzad

    you hit right on the mark and wickets are out of the ground

    • Ibrahim

      Beside the booti culture, the parchi culture to obtain a job is also sustained in Telenor. I never seen them hiring the applicants on merit. They r pathetic to publish such adds, while not implementing those things in their own corporate culture. Real Shame!!!

      • MorningGlory

        Hey there!
        You may have faced such a thing but that may be an only case. I have been there myself-purely on merit, and seen people get hired on their own abilities. Booti/parchi won’t take you anywhere.

        Generally, what happens is people whose lower grades don’t let them enter the industry pick such excuses to defend their vanity. No offense intended.

  • insider

    telenor is badly caught here. wondering how they will rescue itself now

  • Rashid Shahzad

    Agreed.

  • kashif

    Supported.

  • Sitara Khan

    Telenor’s night packages ka Boycott first!

    • Aesthetic

      Agree to you but not only Telenor boycott all late night packagaes offered by all Telcos.
      I think PTA should take serious notice of these late night offers.

      • m a hasan

        i agree with aesthetic to boycott all night and such packages against our religion as well as culture.

    • Aesthetic

      Agree to you but not only boycott Telenor but boycott all late night packagaes offered by all Telcos.
      I think PTA should take serious notice of these late night offers.

  • Saad Durrani

    Seriously Aamir. This might be the last straw of biased reporting. If one is neglecting his studies and yapping all night long, should Telenor be blamed. Should the government around the world ban knives only because they kill people?

    • Aesthetic

      lolz.. u r ryt ma frnd, I think all we should do is stop visiting propaki :p

    • SBM

      Agreed with Saad, one cn’t stop boti culture but he/she can stop him/herself from using late night packages

    • MAK

      Totally Agreed!

    • Ahmed

      Agreed.

      In today’s world even in Pakistan only these night packages the only thing where students can waste their time ? People have Internet and can do voice chat all day and night.

      1- This is no excuse that if student is left with no option to waste his/her time on night packages he/she will finally consider studying..this is stupid as well as hilarious.

      2- One can do voice chat on messenger anytime, ban them to? Does it ensure that a student will still study ? If one is so concerned about his/her future he/she will study no matter what.

      Such reporter come from generations before 70s who aren’t yet ready to face technology change.

        aik se aik bara bewaqoof betha hai yahan…
        havn’t u guys seen governments banning cigarette ads or banning a cigarette puffing on screen all around the world. It does not stop people from smoking but there are some moral & ethical verdicts which need to be adhered.

        • Ahmed

          Aqalmand bhai, how do u compare smoking with talking? smoking is not good for health, talking is bad for health too ? But yea I can give u the logic that if u don’t stop smoking u can die soon, and if u dont stop talking too much on night packages u may fail in exam soon…just in case u run out of argument.

          • spartacus

            hahahaha…

      Mr.Saad manufacterers of knives will never have their slogan as dont kill cows.. Or animals…

      • Saad Durrani

        First. It did not make any sense. Second, Telenor does not have a slogan which tells you to do something out of ordinary. Its “Khamoshi ka Boycott” which means “talk about it”. Talk about how to cut cheating.

        • ali imran

          talk about night packages which are destroying our youth

          • Ansari

            All the people complaining of destroyed youth here are probably the ones who avail these packages most :)

    • Kashif

      Agreed!

    • Irtza Shahan

      Stupid kniver are usefull in thausands of ways its benefits hundered tyms more than its harms . Can night pakages b used in a positive by any means ?Nop nt at all . And yes the governments around the world do ban the things that are harmfull to society . Lyk illegal drugs nd weapons doesn’t it ?

      • Saad Durrani

        They are quite useful. Especially when you have presentations or something upon which you need to rehearse will your friends.

        And as Ahmed said… there are options too… Voice Chat is one of them…

  • Ali

    Agreed

  • shah

    I totally agreed with SAAD.Every thing in the world has its dark side but we should accept its brighter side.Students who are keen to learn remain awake in night to learn and struggle for themselves.

  • Waqas Shahzad

    Telenor has to compete with other companies, Correct me if i am wrong Late night package was started by MOBILINK with “Ladies Package”, and the reponse in sales was unmatchable.

    Propakistani site is on the TOP about telling people Latest packages(late night packages + sms packages) and promoting, its mean you guys are as bad as telenor.

    Surving comes first and then you try to change the world. TELENOR doing exactly.

    You are just trying to justify Propakistani’s previous Article / getting more attention of people.

    • Anas Saleem

      for your kind information the first company to launch the nite package was telenor and the service it offered that on was Djuice

      • Waqas Shahzad

        Ladies Package was intrduced 4 and half years ago. here is the video link watch the date of upload http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9WBt7LVgd8
        and Djuice hasn’t completed 3 years yet.

        Anyway whoever started i wasn’t sure thats why i said correct me if i am wrong.

        I think we should apriciate if some one try to do good work. Its bit aggrasive approch but telenor did the right thing.

        • ali imran

          so you have confessed that telenor copies other companies?

          • Ansari

            ja ker thanay mein report kerwa dey :)

          • Shahid Saleem

            Who in marketing doesn’t copy other companies? You think Mobilink was the first company in the entire world to come up with thier package?

        • Anas Saleem

          bro i was using djuice n they launched the nite package
          m pretty sure that it was around july of 2006

  • Saaim

    Really! U guys mean it?Come on yar..Stop blaming telenor and fix your own bugs,reform yourself and dont ban night packages! U guys hate telenor then bring some other genuine reasons dont mess up with it n plz grow up…

  • Danish

    Its a business and if you expect them to act as an NGO then you really need to think over it, its a good initiative but hasn’t generated that much buzz in favor than against, majorly because of the opposing mindset we have. It’s a stupid fact without any statistical backing but we know how it is.

    Similarly I do not blame propkaistani for publishing all this because this bring hits and website is a business so what? provided its serving the right of opinionated people for or against any matter, does not matter, that does not mean that this blog is also becoming an anti-telenor entity.

    well awl i can say here is that telenor is working exactly the way Geo network has been doing they are sending psychological messages to the world that our system is corrupted thus promoting a negative image of Pakistan to the world and they are also forcing the youth to leave there ethical values and getting brutal

    ok guys i know i take money i.e. 2000 rs per article for every biased article. i know i got paid from zong and mobilink but do you have to blow that our of proportion. If telenor doesnt pay me that is their fault and so they have to take this bashing. I am fat and i am corrupt and this campaign hits me in the heart because i love corruption.

          • Shahid Saleem

            Here is one dif: You pay for 24 hour cable, you can’t pay for 18 hours cable or anything. You don’t pay for late night packages UNLESS YOU WANT TO. YOURE CHOICE

            Do people stay up late to watch tv because its there! YES. What’s wrong with late night package? People stay up late and make calls? Looks like the same effect to me.

  • asghar

    lol you also deleted the last post because it had too much positive support for telenor .. how low life of you attaa .. how low life and truly shitty of you

    • admin

      which page you talking about? We don’t delete pages

  • Ansari

    Lolz although I agree that night packages do affect young students but you cannot blame the telcos for coming out with such packages.

    The control factor needs to come in from the parents and the students themselves. There are students who actually study instead of using night packages and get good grades without cheating. Its all about self control.

    When they youth stop using the packages, the telcos will automatically have to come up with something different.

    • boxer

        Whether any company shuts them down is not the issue, the explicit and immoral use is.

  • samia

    It seems to be a fashion now that mobile operators market their products, or I should say SIM cards, under the umbrella of ‘youth’. But what actually have they done for that youth?

    Telenor has been, or at least try to be, at the forefront of youth-driven activities. Its brand djuice is one of the biggest youth brands in the world. The youth climate in Pakistan, however, is in utter contrast to the countries djuice has found even ground.

    My concerns are pragmatic. As per my little knowledge, Telenor Pakistan has not permanently hired even a single fresh graduate for the last 3 years on pure merit. They do have visited universities, hoisted ‘I love Telenor’ standees, conducted HR sessions but so far none of those proved out to be facilitating..

    Telenor talked about creating opportunities through their Karo Mumkin campaign but no vacancy has ever opened from the service provider’s end. Even my dear friend who won the competition has been running for people to like his page on Facebook; press conferences have been thrown and Margalla Hills have been paid pilgrimage. He is a great human being and an old classmate of mine; I therefore wish him all the very best.

    HR practices of the company are strict, so you wouldn’t really find anyone accepting this fact that they have not hired any fresh graduate; Mobilink employees, on the other hand, would feel it rather convenient to share the state of affairs of recent graduates.

    I reserve my further comments on Mobilink and others for they do not blurt as much about youth as Telenor does with comparatively less pragmatism.

  • Mujahid

    Telecom companies don’t compel anyone to talk all bight. They only “offer” night packages, not “impose”. It’s personal matter of someone who talks all night and wastes his/her own time. Some people are awake all night and watch movies or do other activities like roaming around with friends. So will you say then its fault of movie makers or park owners that youth is wasting time? Please broaden your imagination and start thinking out of box. Secondly companies are indeed for making money and it doesn’t mean that they can’t do anything good even if they do it for money, it is still good.

    Night Package = All operators are offering

    Khamoshi ka boycott is also inviting you to boycott all night packages (if you think its bad)
    then Honestly it shoul be stopped by all operators and credit should be give to Telenor who provided you an idea to speak about it.

    If there was ever a reason to complain about sOmething irrelevant this is it! Our country has o power, increasing prices, eniMies at our gate and we complain about a few kids just being kids! We should be appologizinG to the kids for screwing up the country instead of trying to blame mobile operators for the ills of society

  • Jon

    telenor has put itself in a bad situation wondering what to do now,

  • Aniqa.B

    An appeal to all telcos…..
    Avoid promoting phone sex !

    • Ann

      i second u on that one

  • blunt

    we should not fight on this whether what djuice is? and wht is offering
    the question is about campaign that is Khamoshi ka Boycott and by the way night packages not insist u its totly depend on us
    wesy call rates sasta hony ki waja sy koi bi apny rules ni torta so not blam to any telecommunication company

  • Ann

    sorry but i dont support telenor and all those networks if they offer night packages.. kids/teens/ youngsters dont actually pray to God on night calls but obviously do shitty stuff which i or any sensible person should not support!

    please take our country towards success instead of ruining the most precious time at talking whole nite on phones with loved ones :P

    • blunt

      does any telecommunication company force to keep calling at night?i also against night packages but it doesn’t mean that totaly blam on telecomm its totly depand on us nothing is bad but we make it worse plz think deeply

    • Hassan

      Last time i checked, telenor doesn’t force you to use their night packages neither is there any obligation for you to use them.

      IF you dont like the packages dont use it, rather than showing your rant on the internet tell your friends about the ills of night packages

  • blunt

    infact me and my family dont use telnore bcz of its last controversy but i will not be prejudice
    i agree that telenore is on top to offering night packages but plz fairly understand we waste our time and money with our own decision

  • Umair Ansari

    Totally Agreed!

  • m a hasan

    almost all the great religions support the idea of “encouraging the virtue and discouraging the vice”
    should not all the God fearing people support it ?

  • Ann

    its the same as selling wine in pakistan and saying tumein nai peena to mat pio na!

    We should nip the evil in the bud. and this is the start of evil. from phone obscenity to some major public indecency. You dont do official or school work after 12, ye to sub hi jante hen so talk mature.

  • HAMID ALI

    khamoshi ka boycott nahi, night packages ka boycott
    sms packages ka boycott.
    ja sari raat da package dana si ta chankana booti

  • We all are victims

    For every one who has posted in favour or opposed night packages.. let me say this… I USE THEM… And quite often…… And out of those many times(99.9 %) there is hardly a single instance where i do anything productive( And I’m sure you wold know what I mean here)… So yes.. even though i use them I WOULD STILL WANT IT TO GET BANNED…. People who are advocating about switching to messengers…. Get your facts right.. GO on and find out first how many users actually have access to Broadband services or even dial-up at home….I’m sure not more than5-10% of the whole mobile phone market…. So even if some of you would switch to other platforms many wont…. People advocating that we shouldn’t ban them and let people be judge of their own selves should be reminded that 16 year olds have only only one thing on there minds (Trust me I’m not being judgmental here), well majority of them…. We all know drugs can be bought from any one here if you really want them.. does them that we should legalize them and openly sell them.. would that notion still apply that whoever wants it take it whoever doesn’t wants it leave it????

    Boycotting night packages is about curtailing Only one of those factors that are destroying the destroying the moral fibres of our society.. and i’m saying this as a man who has played his part in this destrucion as well but doesn’t want his fellows to go on that dark road…..

  • We all are victims

    Oh and i think i missed one point.. yes there are a few good things that you can do as well as someone described earlier to rehearse presentations etc.. but this is for the greater good….I’m sure if you are rational enough you would sacrifice one thing for the betterment of your fellow beings…….. I dont think anyone would disagree that after all we are all brothers and sisters (except for the ones on the other side of the phone at night :D)

    • blunt

      i think u will be the top one who know that who is on other side of the phone ?u r too habitual of this
      is it right???

      • We all are victims

        Habitual!!! Not anymore…. But that is my point If i can ignore my studies, my work etc just to be on the phone with a girl(or two) any one can…. Anyone who is around the age of 25 would see the difference himself….. When we were in our 16 we had cricket, football, video games at our disposal… Now you see 16 year olds SMSing and using GHANTA offers….. Trust me its not that I’m being jealous that we didn’t had those things… I’m trying to make a point that if a 23 year old guy like me can be vulnerable to these offers imagine the younger ones……. And when you realize that you wasted those years in pointless smsing , often its very late to cope up with the lost time….. My grand father used to say and I think I’ll forget this “HAR CHEEZ KI ZIADATI (excessiveness) BURI HAI”…. These offers are ZIADATI as well…….. Its what our religion as well teaches us… the concept of MAYANA RAVI….. its not that I’m giving a fatwa or something but for every one to look around and see the younger generation stuck to their mobile phones at all times….. and even though while most of you would disagree also encourages sex talk or even phone sex for that matter…..

        • blunt

          plz give me answer that we should talk with our sorry your girl or boy friend in ” MAYANA RAVI”????????????

          bad is bad no limitation of age and intensity is required and 2nd thing is that in which era are u living in??
          teen ager are on top of dating and somthing else
          i dont thing that any telecomm give u packages of dating?????????
          is it????
          then why rate and percentage of dating increasing day by day

          • princess

            i agree with u blunt

          • We are all Victims

            When I meant MAYANA RAVI, it wasnt in the sense of Dating but the excessive free packages given to us that encourages dating and other things etc….. I’m not putting this all on teleco companies… Night pacages are not the core reason that encourage this put only part of the problem. We’ve to curtail this one by one, we jsut cant let go one thing because there are milions of other things that we cant make right… That is just my point!!!

            • blunt

              That’s my point and i thank to ALLAH that u accepted yourself that telecomm packages not the main reason of our spoiled youth.In my point of view we make use of every thing worse and make it spoil and 4 blaming any technology or luxury is not wiseness it seems like that internet is one of the main reason of spreeeding vulgarity
              i known it is! but do u blam on nonliving cables???? no!!it is in hand of living creature to make it in favour or make any technology disaster
              low rates of call during night can’t force people to break thier rule for example when it was expensive i didn’t use to at that time and infact when it is cheep i also not habitual of this foolish packges
              for u victim my suggetion is that don’t blam other blam yourself for all types of resons
              it is one of the main element in our society to blam others and make free ourself from all of the reasons and result

              • We are all Victims

                I 110 percent agree with you for the fact that technology is not to be blamed…. I’m not blaming technology either… My point is that we should have certain rules in place that should not encourage its mis-use… Can you expect people NOT to rob a bank if you have money in open safes without any security???? There are Rules that are in place for the security of the whole system…… And those rules should also apply to telecom sector to discontinue or discourage its mis-use…… Leave me out of it (I only blame myself for what I did)… but I dont want copies of me roaming around…. and for that there has to be a system in place…. Name me any developed country where there are night packages in place… NONE!!!! In Dubai a single SMS costs half a Dirham…. I mean how can you justify that night packages are PRODUCTIVE in any way???? Trust me not more than 1 percent would discuss their presentations at 3 in the morning…… The primary objective of TELECO is communication NOT FREE COMMUNICATION……. We’ll get the primary communication even without night packages… and even when some will criticize that people would still talk at night I WOULD ASK THEM, HOW MANY ??? That is exactly when I say DISCOURAGE!!!!

                The problem with MNC’s have always been that they exploit 3rd world countries and then in the name of CSR make sure that the victims dont remember the fact that they are a business entity, that is here to make only MONEY!!!!

                When I write you need to understand that however there might be examples that you can quote against my logic… I speak on general Scenarios that shouldn’t be confused with specfics… That is why they call us GENERAL public… I again re-iterate whats for the greater good has to be DONE!!!

                • blunt

                  Thanks for your deep thoughtful speech I think u kept practicing on it
                  Well i think it is totally depend on us because I have seen some of people who became more rebel bcz of restrictions and I also seen some people (NOT some more than some)who doesn’t care of rules and laws for example it is illegal to mark a date.to bread a signal but how many do you think follow that law? And question is arising here that how many has been arrested by that law???
                  it is ironic that we call ourselves an economic society whereas the cornerstone of the religion is justice. if the rule of law is not prevalent in society, it has no choice but to slide into an abyss where injustice prevail n Pakistan
                  Not taking strong action is the core reason of breaking laws and rules
                  it seems foolish to talk about rules, regulations and laws in Pakistan
                  I am also patriotic but I can’t turn away of reality which has been entered in our society as cancer
                  Well of this long debate finally I have reached to find that we both are in against of night packages but perception is different
                  so I am going to tell how to rid of this most foolish and time wasting problem????
                  Now I am going to talk about djucie third advertisement campaign that is “kia hum ghar sy bhir larkiyo ka ih’teram karty hy”
                  If all male will respect female then there will be
                  No need to ask about their cell phone number!!!!,
                  No number means no late night talking!!!! ,
                  No talking at night means night packages will become useless!!!!
                  Then telecomm will loss their profit !!!!
                  When they loss they will not more offering night packages !!!!!!
                  And then our society will freeeeeeee from these problem!!!!!!

                  • We are all Victims

                    As far as the justice is concerned, Well after Raymond particularly I don’t think the RULE OF LAW actually prevents at all… So you are completely correct as far as Justice in PK is concerned.. Anyways even if justice does not exist that shouldn’t stop us from raising our voices against it.. I guess we both are doing the same… Different ways though but still…. at least we are better than the ones who dont raise at all… That too without BANGING THE DESKS OF PUNJAB ASSEMBLY AND STANDING ON TOP OF THEM :)

                    As far as the 3rd ad is concerned, The theme of all of them is pretty awesome but it would have been even better if they would have banned their night packages first that (Consciously or Unconsciously) encourage disrespect at the fist place….

                    • blunt

                      i feel glad that we both agreed(whether we both still didn’t agree one part of our discusion) and we stop arguing each other :))))
                      and now its time to move to contribute or leave comments on latest post at propakistan

  • blunt

    what a experience????????

  • Salman

    If telenor is speaking loudly for boty culture & purchi culture, so what the Telenor himself is doing.all their employement is done on basis of reference & purchi culture. So telenor should also see in thier own before pointing out whole Pakistan.

    • blunt

      thats a good point i agree

  • blunt

    kesi ny to night package k alawa koi or point rise kia
    good

  • mursleen

    almost 60% of above people have activated pakages like these night ones..
    not only telenor offer these pakages..
    the truth is that by “khamoshi ka boycott” type of compaigns these journalists and other authorities feel danger and unsafe(k kahin unka sach sab k samny na aa jaye..??)

    but the question arises…that why our nation has to use these pakages.???
