'Insecure' Pakistan must stop demonising Pashtuns

Islamabad : One of Pakistan's lawyers Babar Sattar, who writes articles for leading daily The News and other publications, has objected strongly to the ongoing censorship of the media, print and electronic, in Pakistan.

In a tweet, Islamabad-based Sattar revealed that he has been unable to publish his regular Saturday column this week because of the ongoing censorship against the private and free press in Pakistan.

He was also critical about the shutting down of Geo TV and The Jang Group.

He said his latest weekly column for The News International was on the emergence of Manzoor Ahmad Pashteen as the leader of the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM), torch-bearer of the Pahstun community and his larger than life impact on the Pashtun consciousness.
