Is the Pakistan Media under attack by Pakistan Army and the Intelligence Agency? Pakistan’s Intelligence Agency – ISI is accused of obstructing a leading newspaper in Pakistan from distribution, after it infuriated the Pakistan Army officials when it covered the comments of former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif. In an interview to Dawn, Nawaz Sharif hinted at the involvement of Pakistani Army behind the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

The Pakistan Army blocked the distribution of Pakistan’s leading English language newspaper, after Nawaz Sharif in an interview to Dawn, criticised the country’s unwillingness to probe the 2008 Mumbai attacks, for which Pakistan backed terrorists were accused.

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) stated the block on Pakistan’s oldest newspaper was the latest example of Pakistan Army and the ISI trying to tame the media ahead of the elections.

Earlier, one of Pakistan’s most popular television channels, Geo TV, was temporarily taken off the air to stop positive media coverage of Nawaz Sharif and pressurise it to terminate any criticism of the mighty Pakistan Army.

Dawn’s interview with Nawaz Sharif triggered a political hurricane in Pakistan as the former PM faced nationwide condemnation after admitting that Pakistan backed militants had crossed the border before killing 166 people in 2008 Mumbai attacks.

The former PM’s criticism of the Pakistan Army that too in favour of arch-enemy India did not go too well with the top Military officials. The Pakistan-sponsored terrorist organisation, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) has been accused by India of executing the Mumbai attacks with complete backing and support from Pakistan Army, a claim Islamabad denies.

The brunt of the statement by Nawaz Sharif had to be borne by Dawn newspaper. The unjustifiable blocking of the distribution of one of the leading and unbiased newspaper of Pakistan has yet again shown that Pakistan Army resolute to control all media networks in the country.
