Caught Red Handed: PML(N) Website is Plagiarizing News Articles

PMLN

Official Website of Pakistan Muslim League (N) is bluntly copying news articles and op-eds from other news websites. Even worse, PML(N) is lifting these articles without linking back or crediting the legitimate originator of such news stories.

The need for lifting news articles for an official website of political party is still unclear, however, it appears that webmaster is trying to populate content to fetch more audience (through search engines) to the PML(N) website.

There are dozens of such news articles that lifted from other main-stream websites of Pakistan without credit.

Interestingly, PMLN isn’t lifting politics specific articles only, but news stories of various non-political topics are also lifted for the sake of populating content on the website. One such example is the QMobile article  — that Express Tribune carried recently – is also reproduced on PMLN Website.


      • O IK k chamchay. yay website IT news k liye not for posting political news. yay news siasat . pk per hoti tu acha lagta. ub chalo nikal lo bc.

        • O krich! jab koi websites apni pe kisi aur ka material chori kar ke apne naam se lagata hai tu chonke yeh aik website hai aur data digital form main hai tu yeh IT news ki category main aati hai. ab aayee samajh douche bag.

  • lifted? check your English first dude :) and search engines do not rank higher copied content that mean no traffic (for your knowledge).

  • Another anti-PML(N) article by Pro-PTI authors ^_^
    BTW, it’d be better to highlight gadget and technology based articles to fetch more audience :)
    #AamirAttaaMurdabad :P

            • “I will not take any PMLQ lota in my party” and now look Noora is welcoming everyone. How about this and other millions of examples which can be stated to prove that Noora can’t stand on his statements. Lagta hai laptop le ke zameer bech diya hai…Shame on you.

              • yar tu meray pas aja teray liye laptop k dhair laga don. IK nay bhi lootay dalna shuru kardiye. tum jaision ko ghas bhi koi nahi dalta bs idher baith kar bow bow karo..

                • Baat yeh nahin ke kis party ko ziada log support karte hain aur kis ko kam. Yeh wohi gandi awaam hai jis ne 2008 main Zardari ko jitwaya tha. Is awaam ka kya gila Ghalib yeh woh chawal log hain
                  haakam Zardari gar na hota tu Nawaz Sharif hota
                  Baat yahan sahi aur ghalat ki ho rahee hai. Apne dil se poocho imaandari se ke IK aur Nooras main kaun behtar insan hai. Jis ko dil behtar samjhe us ko support karo warna…you know what!

              • Forgot Imran Khan? Imran Khan openly stated he will bring new faces and give tickets on merit, he was talking about those Tailors and Hawkers he used as public-popularity-stunt but what we’re watching is all those from PEE-PEE-PEE, Qatil League and same traitors are now leading PEE-TI.
                IK was the one who stated on media he will join and support PML(N) dharna outside parliament but other day he changed his statement. SHAME!
                Now look who can’t stand on his statement and there are several other examples.

                P.S. I respect Imran Khan and I don’t have any personal clashes. Moreover, I never got a laptop or any other rewards for praising and supporting PML(N). I’ve my own concerns and you have your own!

                • O dunn! Imran khan ne kaha tha ke woh 25% tickets nojawan naye logon ko de ga aur usne tu yeh waada is se bhi ziada ticket de kar poora kar diya hai.
                  Aur agar gherat naam ki koi cheez hai tu compare karo ke Noora ne kitne PMLQ ke logon ko liya aur IK ne kitne logon ko liya…Apne moun pe hi thappar marne ko dil kare ga.
                  Dharne ki baat karte ho tu tumhare leader ne tu dharna start kiya aur baarish aa gayee tu sab tittar bittar ho gaye…2008 ke elections main sab parties ka faisla hua tha ke woh elections ka boycot karen ge laikin tumhare pig numa leader ne woh tora aur khud hissa liya elections main.
                  Finally, it is obvious what are your concern. Any person with even 1% of sanity can see the difference between Nooras and IK and can clearly ascertain that IK is millions times better than these criminals and hypocrites.
                  Din se raat aur raat se din khatam ho jaye laikin Noora ki begherti ki kahaniya khatam nahin hoon gi… Aur tum kis kis cheez ko jhutlao ge.

                  • 1. Wo 25% NO-jawan kahan hain? :D

                    2. BUSHaraff, PEE-PEE-PEE aur Qatil League k kitnay log PEE-TI mein aye ab tak? (Aasman pe taaray gin lena aaj)

                    3. 2008 mein IK ne election mein hissa is liye nahi liya kyun k janab apni shikast nazar aa rahi thi. Wese INQALABI PARTY ka wajood tha 2008 mein? :P

                    4. Dunya idher ki udhar ho jaye gi lekin IK aur Inqalabion k U-TURN khatam nahi honge!

                    • 1 – Agar 25% se kam hoe tu main PTI chhor doon ga…just wait until the announcement of tickets.
                      2 – Chal aisa kar tu apni list le aa aur main apni list le aata hoon ke kitne loog PMLQ ke dono paries main gaye hain…Mere paas kam az kaam 40 naam hain aur tu mujhe 15 ya 20 hi ginwa de….Baqi masla yeh ke tere leader nahin khulam khula kaha tha ke woh musharaf ke chamchon ko nahin le ga laikin IK ne aisa kuch nahin kaha kabhi….Faraq yeh ke tere leader ne thook ke chaata
                      3 – Its just one way of thinking. Another obvious way is that he didn’t violate the agreement made in APDM while your chootiya leader did violate that agreement.
                      4 – U-Turn hahahaha….munafaqat ki inteha hai….jo sab se ziada U-Turn karta hai wohi doosron pe label lagata hai…wow…what ridiculous people live in this country

      • at-least I support those who delivered. Mistakes are apart (for what they have apologized) but think again you’re on wrong path! Supporting those who change their statements after every 10 minutes won’t bring INQALAB!

        • Delivered what…Electricity, Jobs, Thana culture, health facilities, education. Don’t believe me, believe the figures. GDP of punjab is even lower than Pakistan which is even lowest in history. Are you blind.

          • I have 2 answers for you:
            1. PML(N) wasn’t in Federal Government but they were limited to provincial government. Funds were still delivered by Federal Government to all provinces. Punjab delivered half/some of its funds to Balochistan for betterment of our Baloch brothers (other 2 provinces didn’t do that) in NFC award program and several power-plants and electricity projects in Punjab were upgraded. Road networks were expanded, they built schools, hospitals, colleges, distributed laptops and solar lamps among students on merit. Construction of Ring-Road, flyovers, under-passes finished in record time. Pakistan’s first Metro-Bus project was initiated in Capital (as happened anywhere in world).
            What more can someone expect in tenure of a Provincial Government?

            2. Why don’t Imran Khan and his Inqalabis blame Sindh, Balochistan and KPK Governments? Everyone is aware what’s happening in Karachi (Bhatta, Target Killing etc) and what’s happening in Peshawar and Quetta but Imran Khan and his Inqalabis are silent but keep on blaming PML(N). WHY?

            P.S Compare Punjab and all other provinces, you will get your answer!

            • #3. Nangi League gave laptops to those people who dont have access to electricity.
              #4. Nangi League took money to manipulate polls and stood by their handlers as long as money kept flowing in.

              • LOOK GUYS! These morons are now opposing those polls conducted by International organizations but when (same) those organizations say PEE-TI is rising upward these morons start praising those polls and those organizations!
                Aese Inqalab nahi aye ga :D

            • Do you know about 18th amendment? Your answer to electricity lies in it. Distribution of money was given to provinces to generate electricity. I have a innocent question for you.
              Kya wohi paisa agar metro ki bajaye bijlee banane pe lagate tu kya behtar faisla hota.
              Baqi kis ne roka tha punjab governement ko ke thaana culture behtar karo, province main education behtar karo, jo 1 crore se oopar bacha school nahin jaata os ko school bhejne ke liye koi major steps lete, GDP behtar banate, health system main behtari laate etc…ab yeh mat kehna ke yeh sab unhon ne kiya hai…. agar kiya hai tu logon ko nazar kyon nahin aata…
              Finally, hum ne chhota daku aur bara daaku wali game nahin khelni ke yeh kehte phiren ke konsa sooba behtar tha. compare karna hai tu India ke sobe Bihaar se karo tab pata chale ke kitne paani main hai yeh noora.

              • Answer to all your questions lies in this single line:
                Compare Punjab and all other provinces, you will get your answer!

                But you haven’t replied to this:
                Why don’t Imran Khan and his Inqalabis blame Sindh, Balochistan and KPK Governments? Everyone is aware what’s happening in Karachi (Bhatta, Target Killing etc) and what’s happening in Peshawar and Quetta but Imran Khan and his Inqalabis are silent but keep on blaming PML(N). WHY?

        • Yeah right. Support those who change their nationality every 10 mins. And steal intellectual property. Lohaar ny agar jangla bus bana di tu ya kya deliver kya? Apna lohaa hi tu becha hai bablu.

          • If they (Sharifs) were that bad why did they build several projects including Ittefaq Foundry, Sharif Medical City and many others in Pakistan?
            Keep in mind you morons, either someone is running private business in Pakistan, in return Pakistan will get revenue in form of exports and taxes! Why didn’t past governments, FIA or even NAB sealed Ittefaq group if they were that bad?

            Moreover, You’ve showed your mentality! Metro bus project was given to Al-Habib Construction Company which is also working for NHA (National Highway Authority) and several other government sectors. To kya Government sectors ne bhi in ka LOHA liya?
            Government has to provide money and to look after that project. Rest is up to that construction company, either they use LOHAR ka LOHA or anything else they find good for that project MUNNA!

            • Wow—-itni aqal mandi ki baat. Yani ke phir tu har businessman ko haakam hona chahiye mulak ka kyonke usne apne businesses chala ke qoum ka faida kiya hai….O lakh di laanat hai itni bewaqoof qoum pe…

  • Actually, they are not doing this to raise levels of search engine traffic. PMLN wrongfully wants to take credit for telecommunication in Pakistan. Therefore it is stealing content on these topics and promoting on its own site, unfortunately without credit.

    But this is not new for PMLN. They are known copy-cats. All their projects are copy-cat without understanding basic needs or conducting detailed research.

    • You need to update your knowledge, read about 1993 era when legislation was done to open doors to investments in telecom sector, and monopoly of PTCL was removed.

  • not a big isse, everyone is copying now a days. you propakistani people jus want to make a story and also now a days every one has a PLMN fobia including you people.

    • wah ji wah. no justification is enough to remove the attachment of Nooras from their leader. Plagiarisation isn’t a story – you don’t even understand the meaning of it. Its same like someone stealing from your house.

  • ProPakistan firstly you people should learn to give credit. Though at a few rooms, you people give credit but not at many rooms. You don’t hold any copyright for images you publish, various telecom logos are published as such without attributing their copyright.

    • haan g credit bhe daina chahiye tha end main k PML(N) nay metro bus chalai, motor way banai, mager phir bhe article CHORI kiya baray baray kaam karne walay aise chote kaam bhe tu kar sakte hain na Zain bhai lol

  • Why the f*k a political party publishing a whole post about a mobile phone on its official website?

  • I don’t understand this post at all. Looks like our brother Amir Aata who is pro PTI has left with nothing to write in favor of PTI and against other parties specially PMLN. I am an overseas Pakistani and not in favor of any of these corrupt parties inviting most corrupt leaders to join, be it PTI, PMLN or PPP or others.
    But Amir don’t you think that those readers of this blog who aren’t biased can judge what is coming on your blog? Propaganda in the name of technology or writing against other parties linking it with technology is such a shame. Please don’t spoil a good image of this blog and let it be only a technology blog.

    • If you dont care about any political party, why bother commenting at all? Where theres fire, there is smoke,

  • How much many did Pro Pakistani got to publish this new and everyone know the history of Pakistani, why did not they asked the party about this before publishing? They should have posted the point of view of PML (N) if they have some Journalism ethics…..

  • Sharifs are worst than thieves, they have stolen entire wealth of Pakistan , now stacked abroad.. They can steel anything.

  • Dudes @ Pro-Pakistani, To avoid traffic going down on your site, you should continue as a technology specialist blog. Don’t jump into political journalism that highlights your wrath against one or the other. Like many have said, don’t become pro-political.

  • Dont think its an issue.

    Amir Atta is just an expert converting non issue into issues.

    This is a common problem in Pakistan that everyone is Jack of all trades. Especially, people from media are like HAR FUN MOLA.

    Two categories I am amazed at in Pakistan: CSS Officers and Journalists, both ar expert from Chooran selling to atomic explosion to economy, world affairs and you name it.

    I dont give a damm whether PMLn is getting news article or writing news articles, I would like to see an analysis a thorough analysis.

    A piece of advice for you Amir Atta: We need an analysis of the news rather than your cheap analysis which you would like us to think of as a news.

    Hope you don’t mind like a grown up adults of this critical view. Please bring quality journalism to Pakistan rather than cheap politicise stories. Whole nation is politicise and I think we need to depoliticise the nation, as if I take politics out of the equation you have nothing left to write or entertain.

    Best wishes

    • Wow how mature! Have you looked at who actually wrote the article?

      And what is wrong with this article? You read it! This in fact is actually a matter of copyright infringement which people usually take for granted. Content is writing is not an easy task, those who do it have a talent and do put in effort onto it. Other picking it up and using it on mainstream with acknowledging the actual owner of the content is a very unethical. Now considering PML(N) is a political party that is looking to represent Pakistan in the future, doing this abuse is not dignified.

      I mean no disrespect to anyone but please do acknowledge that someone noticed and reported a wrong thing and reported it. It would have gone unnoticed as with most of the crimes (regardless of how little or large it may be) in Pakistan.
