TUJ condemns attack on journalist

PESHAWAR: The Tribal Union of Journalists (TUJ) staged a demonstration on Sunday to condemn the attack on the house of a tribal journalist and demanded the government immediately arrest the culprits.

The demonstration led by TUJ President Nasir Khan Mohmand took place in front of the Peshawar Press Club. The protesting tribal journalists chanted slogans against the government for failing to protect Nasrullah Afridi despite his request for help.

They accused a Khyber Agency-based religious group of giving life threats to Nasrullah. Mohmand said the government had failed to protect tribal journalists even if they were in the provincial capital, and demanded the Mutahidda Majlis-e-Amal government take steps for the security of tribal journalists in the settled areas.
