Shaheen Sehbai resigned from The News International in March 2002 after receiving a memorandum from his publisher admonishing him for publicishing libelous material, alienating advertisers, and generally avoiding senior government officials as well his own staff, among other complaints; Mr. Sehbai claimed that the criticism was because he failed to support the Musharraf government. In August 2002, the Committee to Protect Journalists sent a public letter to then-President Pervez Musharraf to draw his attention to alleged harassment of Shaheen Sehbai's family.
In July 2010, Shaheen Sehbai filed a defamation notice against Azeem Daultana, a member of the National Assembly of Pakistan and two newspapers for publishing a column written by Daultana. The notice complains that the column alleges that Sehbai has undertaken a "revenge mission" against the present President Asif Ali Zardari because Sehbai had been "denied" an Ambassadorship, a claim that was originally made in an Aftab Iqbal column published in Nawa-i-Waqt on December 29, 2008.
In April 2016, Shaheen Sehbai resigned from The News International citing concerns about the newspaper's political leaning and claiming that the paper "unnecessarily engaged in a dangerous conflict with national institutions."
