ISLAMABAD, Feb 17 (Liaqat Jadoon): The fourth Pillar Media watchdog International chairman Farooq Mirza has strongly condemned the brutal murder of Aziz Memon, a journalist in Mehrabpur city of district Nosheroferoz and demanded to arrest murderers immediately.
Talking to members of the fourth pillar Farooq Mirza, Secretary General Mazhar Iqbal and other office bearers have expressed their deep shock on this cruel incident. “This has become a custom by culprits to attack journalists in the line of duty and media houses for their concealed motives and no attacker is brought to justice so far. Government and its departments have miserably failed to investigate and bring killers of journalists to justice,” they lamented.
He said that immediate action by law enforcement agencies and government on any such threat to journalists could have saved their lives. “Brutal murder of Aziz Memon, a reporter of KTN and daily Kawish is the continuation of attacks on journalists and media houses by such elements. It has put a big question mark on performance of government and its departments,” he mentioned.
Farooq Mirza said that such attacks were planned attempts to suppress dissenting voices. He demanded Prime Minister Imran Khan, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and IG Police Sindh to immediately arrest killers of journalist Aziz Memon and bring them to justice.
