Attack on a newspaper office

Editorial: Attack on ‘Khabrain’ is disreputable
Daily Times, July 5, 2007

A nazim of Karachi has led an armed assault on the office of the Urdu daily Khabrain. But if there was a grievance nursed by the district government against anything the paper had printed the matter could have been simply resolved. A meeting with the editor never fails to help, but those who want to take the law into their own hands never pay heed to this simple device. When the political leaders were contacted, they turned off their phones. Finally, the federal minister for information tried to intervene to get governor Sindh to end the demolition. This episode has yet again brought a bad name to the party in power in Karachi in an election year. *
