DismissedFrom NGO

Leading Pakistani rights activist Ansar Burney in july 2012 said he has dismissed his brother from his NGO for participating in a live TV show that featured a Hindu boy converting to Islam. This conversion was a drama created by (TV show host) Maya Khan and my brother Sarim Burney. I have dismissed my brother from the Ansar Burney Trust," Burney told PTI on phone from London. The rights activist said Sunil had worked for his organisation for several years. Sarim Burney had featured prominently in the show on ARY Digital. He was seen sitting next to Sunil while a cleric converted the Hindu boy to Islam. Burney said if Sunil had chosen to convert to Islam of his own free will, it should have been kept a private matter. "The boy could have converted in front of a few witnesses. There was no need to televise the whole thing," he said. Burney further said he is looking into some "corruption charges" that had been levelled against his brother Sarim.  [4] Dismissed from NGO 

Clarification By Sarim Burney

Sarim was the vice chairman at the Ansar Burney Trust, which was started in 1980 as the Prisoners Aid Society. He dismissed the corruption allegations, saying that Ansar had always handled the funds and the accounts. “Ansar should know about corruption as he was directly involved with the monetary affairs of the organisation,” Sarim told The Express Tribune. He maintained that he had separated their work for the past three months and formed his own trust, Sarim Burney Welfare Trust. “This did not please Ansar as he always wants to be in the limelight,” alleged Sarim. Sarim backed the conversion. “I have seen the boy fast when he had not embraced Islam. He did it of his own free will. Being miles away, how can Ansar say that it was forced?” Sarim also claimed that Sunil worked for the Sarim Burney Welfare Trust and not the Ansar Burney Welfare Trust.  [5] Clarification Clarification
