Meher Bokhari also known as Meher Abbasi. Meher Bukhari was born on 18 April 1983 in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. Meher Bokhari might just be the youngest journalist in Pakistan to have made her mark and created ripples in national media in the shortest span of time. In a brief span of four years, Meher has reported, hosted, and produced from both within and outside Pakistan.
Bokhari started her career hosting and producing a show covering a diverse range of the most pressing issues facing Pakistani society today, with special attention to intersections among gender, race, ethnicity, class, economic exploitation, age, and other forces of oppression. ‘Nai Rahain’ one of Pakistan’s flagship, social issues’ show positioned Bokhari for more challenging journalistic endeavors.
After the first year, she launched another leading show simultaneously called ‘Mulaqatein’ in which Bokhari conducted one-on-one interviews with the leading personalities of Pakistan. Meher has been regularly reporting from sensitive and restricted areas within Pakistan e.g. insurgency-hit zones in Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa, fragile Azad Jammu & Kashmir, earthquake affected zones in Balochistan, sectarian violence ridden South Punjab etc. She was the first person in the world to draw attention to and release the video of the public flogging of a young girl by the Taliban; a daring initiative which not only shook both national and international communities, but served to change both perspectives and national policy visa vis terrorism. After the first two years, Bokhari made a transition into evening prime time, hosting and producing one of Pakistan’s leading current affairs shows, News Beat on Samaa Tv.
She is the recipient for Samaa Television “Star Performance of the Year Award” for journalistic excellence in covering Lahore floods and civic responsibility, as well as Samaa Televison “Best Anchor/Producer Award”. Bokhari is currently hosting and producing Dunya Tv’s flagship news show, Cross Fire. Cross Fire is a daily live current affairs program in which Bokhari analyses the leading headlines of the day through interviewing both stakeholders and opinion makers both within and outside Pakistan. She has given presentations on Innovation Journalism at Stanford University and continues to speak to aspiring media practitioners in local universities. Having swam for Pakistan’s National Swimming Team and as Captain of the Provincial Punjab swimming team, Meher Bokhari, who hails from Lahore, did a double major in Mathematics and Business and minored in Economics from University of Waterloo, Canada. Bokhari writes frequently for various newspapers.
She is known for her penetrating and hard-hitting questions which, when coupled with her sensitivity and understanding of the social ills plaguing Pakistan, become a testimony to her dynamic personality.
