    Arjumand Azhar Hussain -- the man who filmed the video of politicians allegedly responsible for the delay of a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight on September 16 -- was fired from his job at Gerry's Group, reports Dawn.

    Speculation was rife on Tuesday that Hussain's sacking was linked to the video clip he filmed that showed irate airline passengers barring Senator Rehman Malik and Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) Member of National Assembly Dr Ramesh Kumar Wakwani from boarding the PIA aircraft after facing what they said was a delay of two and a half hours.

    Gerry's Group, which was Hussain's former employer took to their Facebook page to respond to rumours that the sacking was due to political influence, saying their decision was "purely based on merit'.

    Sad. That guy should contest election against Rahman malik now. I am sure that Pakistani people will support him more than that VIP minister.

    How about a campaign to boycott Gerry's Group and take this further?

    They have mainly corporate accounts. For example, they provide services for visa applications and documents. How are people going to conduct an effective boycott of such services?

    Will doing any of that get him his job back?

    Gerrys group is a saith company owned by a Memon family (no disrespect to Memon community), I worked for this company for nine years and have seen with my eyes the unbelievable scenes of firing really really strong managers who worked days and night for the progress of this company, apart from the MD most of the owner directors including the chairman have nothing at all, gerrys actually got a boost when they managed to get US VISA services in early 2000. Lot to say but within gerrys there are dozens of instances.

    It's a massive company but employees always work under the fear of being fired anytime if seith sb does not like him.

    Here's the 'Vision' of Gerry's Group, basically a travel agency specializing in air travel and ground handling sercices.....

    "At Gerry's, we take great pride in the fact that our team is dedicated, determined and target oriented. We lead our team towards new and prodigious horizons with state-of-the-art technology, to give our clients complete satisfaction. We strive to move forward with strategies aimed at creating a prosperous and lucrative future for our people as well as for the company."

    Really? They should also have included: Our employees are trained to become boot-lickers to the politicians and are liable to be sacked and face an uncertain future should they act in a way that embarrasses the high and mighty.

    Yes, squeezing their customers would be a good start.

    Gerry's being a corporate firm has every prerogative to issue any reason to the press for the dismissal. whether it is true or not is known only to the management of Gerry's. At no point has the firm clarified what reasons were given to remove the person on his immediate arrival from a Trip SPONSORED by Gerry's for which the person dedicated his entire time to despite having a wife recovering from a serious operation.

    Hence, the circumstances of the dismissal were quite suspect to the gentleman who otherwise had excellent relations with the employers. Again, the person who disclosed the firing was the ARY Anchor Lucman and it was not the intention of the person to disclose it on TV. Rather it was mentioned off handedly to a friend while at ARY for what was supposed to be an interview focusing solely on the Rehman Malik incident. However, it was important once Lucman raised the issue to clarify the circumstances of the dismissal.

    Lets not badmouth Gerry's. They may be under pressure or may have calculated to their own benefit this particular move. All firms do this, but the way it was carried out was rather appalling as the gentleman considered the company sacred and would have voluntarily left for whatsoever reason Gerrys would have given him.
