The founder and leader of MQM Mr. Altaf Hussain has raised some important questions regarding the assassination attack on senior journalist and anchor-person Hamid Mir.

Question No. 8: Who were the people from GEO’s management who  were first to arrive at the hospital where Hamid Mir was taken for treatment ?
Question No. 9: Different channels and newspapers have told us about a hit list prepared by Taliban. Hamid Mir’s name tops the list. This hit list has been shown on TV channels repeatedly. The so-called leaders of Taliban have threatened Hamid Mir and others of dire consequences. The newspapers and TV channels should be asked how they got this list.
Question No. 10: Different Taliban groups have been issuing threats to Hamid Mir. Their names and contact numbers should be traced. It will help in the investigation.

Question No. 13: Tehreek-e-Taliban Punjab has accepted the responsibility of the attack on Hamid Mir. This news has been published in the Daily Jung and other newspapers and broadcast by news channels. It should be investigated why this important point is being ignored in investigation.
Question No. 14: Noted columnist and Anchor-person Imtiaz Ahmed has also received threats. Anchor-person Raza Rumi was attacked. Office of Express News and their Van were also attacked too. TTP has accepted the responsibility of the attack on Express News’ van, which resulted in the death of three employees. Taliban has been hurling threats to journalists and anchor-persons. Why was ISI blamed for the attack on Hamid Mir? It should be investigated why ISI Chief’s picture was splashed across on the TV screens?
Mr. Hussain has appealed to intellectuals, writers, columnists and news analysts and defense analysts to share their analysis and views with people.
