Journalists critical of military or government face attacks in Pakistan, says CPJ
Aliya Iftikhar, a CPJ researcher who authored the report, quoted several Pakistani journalists who said the judiciary's silence adds a 'climate of fear and self-censorship'.
The Committee to Protect Journalists, a New York-based group, says in a new report today it has documented how journalists critical of the military or government authorities were abducted or attacked.
The report also documented how the army's spokesman has accused journalists of sharing anti-state and anti-military propaganda, and how distribution of two of Pakistan's largest outlets — Geo TV and Dawn — were arbitrarily restricted.
