Pakistan Blogzine was a part of a recent effort along with Shia activists and other rights activists in highlighting the Jang Group’s unprofessional and malicious conduct in publishing an ISI-inspired report about an imaginary Shia terrorist group namely Haideri Taliban or Mehi Militia.
We are pleased to report that as an outcome of our collective efforts, Jang Group (The News) has retracted the news item and published and apology.
This small incident shows that every single post, tweet, and email counts. Let’s carry on with our activism in support of the persecuted, target killed and ignored communities.
We warn Pakistan army and its propagandists in media and urban elites to refrain from misrepresenting Pakistan’s Shia Muslims and other persecuted and target killed communities.
We also urge media and activists to break their collective silence and selective morality on genocide of Shias and other groups in Pakistan.
We urge Jang Group’s Bureau Chief in Peshawar Rahimullah Yusufzai to also spare some loyalty for Pakistan’s oppressed communities departing from his (and Saleem Safi’s) traditional loyalty to ISI.
