Senior journalist Ayaz Mir was Slapped on the Face
Ayaz Mir, a senior Pakistani journalist, was returning home after a show on Dunya TV when he was stopped on the way and tortured. There were four to six people stopping the senior journalist. They stopped the senior journalist’s car and after torturing him, slapped his driver and snatched his mobile phone. Ayaz Mir had addressed a regime change seminar yesterday and criticized the army. He said that Pakistan’s land would be reduced but the army’s interest in forming DHQ would not end. That’s why those four to six people slapped and threatened him. Ever since imported government imposed on Pakistan, freedom of the press in Pakistan has been eroding. No journalist has the right to freedom of expression. Any journalist who speaks against the government is subject to FIRs or torture by unknown individuals. FIRs have been lodged against many famous anchors of Pakistan and they can be arrested at any time. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan strongly condemned the incident and said that the government was promoting fascism in Pakistan and worsening the situation in Pakistan. If Pakistan continues like this, Pakistan will be on the brink of disaster. The entire Pakistani journalist community has strongly condemned the incident and called on the government to stop such incidents.
