Al-Jazeera Interview About the Attack on Hamid Mir
I appeared on Al-Jazeera English to speak about the failed assassination attempt on senior Pakistani television journalist Hamid Mir. The interview was aired live in the news bulletin.
I said the I.S.I., Paksitan’s intelligence agency, has had a longstanding tradition of harassing, kidnapping and torturing journalists. Had the allegations about the I.S.I’s involvement in the cases of investigative reporters Umer Cheema and Syed Saleem Shahzad, for which the I.S.I. had been blamed, were properly investigated, the I.S.I. would not be able to carry out another assault on a journalist.
