Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) has strongly condemned the attack on media particularly Geo office and violence against media persons during Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) long march on Wednesday, May 25, 2022.
In a statement issued on Thursday, PFUJ’s President Shahzada Zulfiqar and Secretary General Nasir Zaidi said that media persons were attacked while performing their duties in Karachi and other places while PTI workers also pelted Geo building with stones in Islamabad. “Some cameramen and photographers were also tortured while performing their professional duties. Such an attitude would not be tolerated and journalists would protest this intimidation and harassment.”
They demanded of PTI’s Chairman Imran Khan to take a strict action against those who attacked Geo building and media persons. “We also ask the government to identify the culprits through CCTV footages and take action against them,” the two leaders demanded, and warned that the culture of impunity would not be tolerated at any cost.
