CPP CONDEMN BRUTAL KILLINGS OF 85 JOURNALISTS AND DEMANDS STERN ACTIONS AGAINST THE CULPRITS says CPP Chairman Engineer Jameel A. Malik.
(ATTOCK – October 5, 2012) Central Chairman Communist Party of Pakistan (CPP) Engineer Jameel Ahmad Malik demands the government to arrest the killers of 85 innocent media men like Abdul Haq Baluch, Muhammad Khan Sasoli, Saleem Shahzad, Hayat Ullah and all others, who were martyred in day light .
CPP Chairman said it is very surprising that the killer of American spy journalist Daniel Pearl were not only arrested but severely punished whereas killers of 85 Pakistan journalists are moving freely in the society.
“What a shameful act on the part of Government, for arresting killer of spy foreigner journalist but no one cares about the murderers of all those journalists, who are son of soil.” He added.
CPP has deep concern over the fact that the killers of the 85 journalists were neither arrested nor they had been punished yet. It is very astonishing that killers of these media men, who makes government answerable and accountable on its corruption before masses, are not only threatened but murdered brutally, so that powerful people can achieve their heinous objectives. Present government taking no step practically regarding killing of journalists.
He said the ground relies are against the government rhetoric’s that it supports the independence of media. Unfortunately, in the last decade nearly 85 journalists were martyred, out of which 16-20 media persons were martyred reportedly by various agencies and terrorists, while thirty five journalists perished in target killings, nearly 15 journalists kidnapped, who were murdered after torture later on.
Recently nearly four journalists were killed in Khuzdar Baluchistan including General Secretary Khuzdar press club Abdul Haq Baluch. Before that president Khuzdar press club Muhammad Khan Sasoli was also brutally killed.
Engineer Jameel further said that in his party viewpoint, media is an integral part of society which is mouth piece of downtrodden but journalists in Pakistan are performing their duties in a very bad and dangerous environment.
