Defaming Human Rights campaigner: Media mogul promises to take action
ISLAMABAD: The publisher of a leading media house has responded positively to noted rights activist and legal expert Asma Jehangir’s complaint against two columnists who allegedly carried out a ‘character assassination’ on her in their respective write ups early last month.
The publisher has promised to take action against the two writers, who were also the employees of the organisation, Jehangir told The Express Tribune.
“Dear Asma Sahiba, regarding two articles published in Jang and The News, I am extremely sorry for the inconvenience. I will read myself and take action. Please send the articles as discussed,” Asma said, quoting a text from the publisher of the two papers.
She added that the publisher of the media group also asked her to write an article in response to the two articles. “How can I write about myself,” she said, adding that it is the responsibility of the media group to carry a retraction.
