Recovery of explosive material from beneath the car of Hamid Mir is an attack on freedom of press: Altaf Hussain


Recovery of explosive material from beneath the car of Hamid Mir is an attack on freedom of press: Altaf Hussain
 Posted on: 11/26/2012

Positive steps should be taken to protect the life and property of people belonging to journalist community
The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has expressed his deep concerns on the recovery of explosive material from beneath the car of senior journalist and anchor person of GEO News Hamid Mir. He said that the wicked act was tantamount to suppressing the freedom of press.
In a statement, Mr Hussain said that the vicious attempt to blow the car of Mr Mir is aimed at suppressing the voice of truth and restraining journalists from discharging their professional responsibilities independently.

Condemning the act Mr Hussain said that it was not an attempt on Mr Mir alone. It is rather an attempt on the members of the journalist community at large. He said that the MQM strongly condemns terrorism, and it is with the journalist community. Mr Hussain demanded President Asif Zardari, Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, and Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik to take a serious view of the recovery of explosion material from the car of Mr Mir. He also called for positive steps to protect the life and property of other journalists as well. He said that the elements behind this incident must be brought to justice.
