BOL TV has been embroiled in controversy over the last couple of days after The New York Times reported a story against parent company, Axact for allegedly running a global diploma mill that has earned millions of dollars through a network of fake online schools.
BOL TV’s parent company Axact has strictly condemned the defamation campaign and considered it baseless and substandard. It said it they been based on false accusations without taking the company�۪s point of view in perspective.
BOL TV said, “The defamatory article published on 18th May, 2015, today�۪s events and their derogatory portrayal by the media proves that this is a massive conspiracy by the seths of the Pakistani media industry to defame BOL and Axact and derail the launch of BOL. Employees and their families were terrorized to disrupt the operations of Axact. The scale of this conspiracy becomes clear by the fact that the media owners even fell to the extent of spreading negativity among BOLwalas via SMSs and emails. New joinees of BOL were suggested to wait and think upon their decision as further malicious campaigns are lined up.
Additionally, we appeal to all concerned authorities to conduct a thorough investigation of the manner in which the media houses portrayed the events of Axact offices all over Pakistan today.”
