Revised edit request[edit]


First Modification

Javed Malik (Urdu: جاو ید ملک‎) is a Pakistan’s Ambassador designated as Prime Minister’s Special Envoy for Overseas Investment [Citation: 1. http://www.thenews.com.pk/Todays-News-2-224647-PM-appoints-Javed-Malik-as-special-envoy, 2. http://www.khaleejtimes.com/kt-article-display-1.asp?xfile=data/international/2014/January/international_January148.xml&section=international . He was also associated with media as a writer and television anchor. This is Ambassador Javed Malik’s second diplomatic assignment and he was appointed as Pakistan's Ambassador at Large by the prime minister of Pakistan after the restoration of democracy in Pakistan in 2008 when both Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League N formed a coalition government.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12] Malik's works focused on public diplomacy, and he was involved formation stages of Friends of Democratic Pakistan. [13][14] He completed his tenure after three years and stepped down in 2011. [11][15

Second Modification

Personal Life : to be replaced with Early Life [ reason: because “personal” life implies family and personal matters but this section deals with his “early” life as opposed to personal matters]

Malik was born in Pakistan, and he studied in London where he graduated in law and politics. He practiced law in London and Pakistan, and also worked at British Parliament where he assisted British MP, Rt. Hon. Denzil Davies MP { Citation : http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200102/cmsecret/memi06.htm }. He was also served as the president of British Asian Youth Alliance before joining the world of media where he worked as Vice President with ARY News Channel for almost 10 years

where he discussed issues relating of Asian community particularly on integration of minority communities in mainstream British life.,[16][17][18]

From my perspective, these changes are not improvements.
The lead section of an encyclopedia article should provide an overview of the body of the article, not introduce details that the rest of the article fails to discuss. The current lead section also has this problem. Details should be moved into the body and mentioned in the lead.
The second modification is reasonable although it contains some grammatical errors. The meaning of the last sentence is changed here. Where did he discuss issues relating to the Asian community "particularly on integration of minority communities in mainstream British life"? As vice president of ARY News as suggested in the proposed change? Or while working at the British Parliament as the article currently states?
Also, reference 16 is not needed. We do not need to reference the subject's own writings. ~Amatulić (talk) 17:31, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
Closing this COI edit request per User:Amatulic's remark that "these changes are not improvements". Also, no improvements have been made to the second modification request, nor were any messages posted in this section since 19 May. --82.136.210.153 (talk) 12:15, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Unreliable references on the page[edit]

There are several Unreliable references on the page which questions the neutrality of the page. They need to be removed outright. Source number 1, 9, 16, 19, 24, 25, and 26. I tried several times to tag the articles but User:Justice007 keep reverting my tags and accusing me for being personally against the subjects of article. Rather than going into edit warring I prefer to leave that matter to other editors. Please look into this. --Saqib (talk) 07:29, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

I take a look at that sources. I am not an editor to create edit warring. I believe in collaboration with other editors. I was on long Wiki-vacation, maybe, some articles have such sources. I hope this helps, and I welcome other editors too, in this regard. Justice007 (talk) 07:48, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
So do you think the mentioned sources are reliable? If you think otherwise, let me tag the article and please don't remove it again. I appreciate that you do not want to indulge in edit warring and would like to work collaboratively with others. --Saqib (talk) 07:58, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
I have checked the sources that are of course reliable source per primary sources except the source 1, but with that, another source is also cited. However, one can tag the template unreliable source rather entire article. thanks. Justice007 (talk) 08:03, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
User:Justice007: Its hilarious to hear that you think that cited sources that I raised concern about are reliable and should be kept. You need to take a look at Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources. Who told you that The News Tribe, Pakistan Times is a well-established news outlet? Who told you to cite "YouTube" video as a reference ? And who told you that non-third party sources such as "the Diplomat Magazine" which is run by Javed Malik himself would make a great reference for his own bio page? for your kind information, YouTube, The News Tribe, Pakistan Times and "the Diplomat Magazine" are not mainstream newspapers. --Saqib (talk) 08:29, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
The first para of this section says He is ranked among the pioneer anchors of independent television in Pakistan. His programme, "Insight with Javed Malik" remained one of the most watched television shows in Pakistan for many years but the two videos link cited doesn't say something like this. --Saqib (talk) 14:22, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
Similarly, I couldn't find the source that support the text in the lead "Malik has initiated various trade and Economic diplomacy projects aimed at promoting the business trade and investment opportunities in Pakistan". Javed_Malik#Personal_life contain no source at all. --Saqib (talk) 14:27, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
