APNS condemns threats to newspaper vendor
KARACHI – The All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS) on Monday expressed its concerns over District Ghotki’s Akhbar Farosh Union General Secretary Abdul Haleem Mirani’s recent statement against his neighbour Maula Dino Mirani and his sons regarding the purchase of his home by force at a cheap rate.
APNS Secretary General Sarmad Ali expressed profound concern over the recent statement of the general secretary. The APNS strongly condemned the threats of violence as an attempt to suppress the media forcibly.
The APNS also appealed to the IGP to provide adequate and meaningful security to media houses, journalists and distributors of newspapers and take action against the culprits who resorted to these illegal activities aimed at deterring the ability of press to report truth and provide access to information.
