ISLAMABAD – The chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan visited the bullet riddled Hamid Mir and termed him as the most favorite television anchor.
Khan visited the Hamid Mir at his resident in Islamabad on Thursday and spoke to media outside his house.
Khan told media that his animosity with Mir Shakeelur Rehman must not be taken against Geo News’ anchors. “I am not against any of Geo’s anchors. I am against the unpatriotic activities of Mir Shakeelur Rehman which I will tell at some other forum,” he added.
When asked Khan said “Those responsible for attack on Hamid Mir must be apprehended at any cost. Its a miracle that Hamid Mir survived after receiving so many bullets.”
Replying to another question he said “Hamid Mir was also one of those anchors who termed previous general elections as rigged. We have to fix this issue otherwise we would never be able to achieve true democracy.”
Khan visited Hamid Mir at his residence along with Jehangir Khan Tareen and Naeemul Haq of PTI.
