In a past interview, it was seen that several noted journalists who are now residing outside the country were invited back to their
homeland by the Pakistan government on the pretext of safety and yet they refused to go back. After all, who would want to get killed at the cost of speaking the truth?
The Deputy General of ISPR, Major General Asif Gafoor, in a recent press conference has said that “Media is the first line of defense”. Hypocrisy, beaming out of his statement, shows, while a spokesperson for the Pak military supports
the positive impact of media, at the same time the military run government tries to silence all these honest opinions.
a false sense of victory for over five decades and giving it a shape of “Defence Day” is actually a step ahead in the practice of fake News and propaganda which the Pak military is known to be best at. They feel no shame in propagating the myth of 1965 just as they feel no remorse for gagging
the voices of the truthful reporters. Will these honest voices ever be able to reach the ears of the gullible and unaware public, only time will tell?
