ISLAMABAD – The Federal Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has termed the vigilant media of Pakistan the defenders of ideological front against the menace of terrorism.
PML-N’s federal minister admired and criticized the role of media at the same time on Saturday in a press conference.
“Media is the first line of defence when it comes to the ideological front against terrorism. Journalists and their pens are no less than weapons against terrorists. However, you need to reallocate your wisdom when reporting or writing on terrorism,” Perveaiz added.
He described that how sometimes due to the professional negligence by media persons the victims of terrorism look like the ones responsible for terrorism. He quoted an incident stating “The reported asked from a wounded policeman that why could not he arrest the suicide attacker? Now that poor policeman was not even in a condition to respond to this or any type of question. Obviously the policeman was standing alert on the crime scene. His wounds were the evidence.”
Pervazi Rashid told the media persons that with a minor alignment of media’s perspective we would be in a much better position to fight the menace of terrorism.
