It seems that Pakistan Feudal Party (also known as PPP) government in full swing
to confront independent media using all their internal resources and their external
links to put curbs on genuine journalism and news analysis.
It reminds us of Musharraf’s emergency days when similar was done to stop the voices against their mistakes and crimes.
Recent victim of this PPP government’s feudal martial law is “Meray Mutabiq” of Dr. Shahid Masood which has been banned by the Dubai government to go on air from Dubai.
Recently government, agencies, government sponsored media and journalists have started a massive campaign against independent media and the elements and methods used were pretty much same as of Musharraf times even the allegations are similar like being paid by opposition or serving the foreign agenda (We all know our governments have been serving the foreign agenda not the independent media).
We condemn this action of Pakistan and UAE governments and show our full solidarity with independent media.
We expect the genuine journalists and analysts to continue their role which they have played against dictatorship, against emergency,against innocent killings and illegal abductions, against imperialist takeover of our country ,against NRO and corruption and the role to restore the independent judiciary of Pakistan.
