ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf has condemned the continuing harassment and targeting of journalists in Karachi – the latest being the illegal detention and torture of an investigative reporter by a political force in the city.
According to the news story coming out the journalist was also asked to leave Karachi and move to another part of Pakistan.
Such incidences of targeting journalists undermine the foundations of democratic institutions and destroy the democratic traditions the people including the media have fought so hard to strengthen.
In a statement issued here Monday, PTI unequivocally condemns any kind of threat or violence against journalists who are working to expose the evils in our society and state. Freedom of the press means freedom from fear and terror also.
PTI is committed to upholding the norms of freedom, security and justice for all. NNI
