‘A bullet has been chosen for you’: Attacks on journalists in Pakistan

By admin

Amnesty has released its latest report entitled  “A Bullet Has Been Chosen For You” – Attacks On Journalists In Pakistan 

The situation in Pakistan seems dire. Here are the highlights:

  • At least 34 journalists may have been killed as a direct consequence of their work since democratically-elected government was restored in March 2008.
  • Only in one case have the perpetrators been convicted, the 2011 killing of Geo TV correspondent Wali Khan Babar, and even in this case there were serious concerns about fair trial issues.
  • Since Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif formed government in 5 June 2013, at least 8 journalists have been killed across Pakistan as a direct result of their work. These include 5 journalists killed in 2014.
  • Of the 34 killings since 2008, 9 took place in northwestern Pakistan (the Federally Administered Tribal Areas or Khyber Pakhtunkhwa).
  • 13 took place in Balochistan province, and of these 6 happened in the province’s second town Khuzdar.


Introduction of the report mentions Raza Rumi, the founder/editor of this website:

“I was told my name was on a Taliban hit-list, but I hoped this was just a tactic to scare journalists like me speaking about the situation in my country. How wrong I was.” Raza Rumi, journalist

On the afternoon of 27 March 2014, journalist and human rights defender Raza Rumi contacted Amnesty International to register reports that his name was on a Pakistani Taliban hit-list. “I’m not sure if it’s real or just an attempt to silence me, but I’m very concerned,” he told Amnesty International.1 The next day while driving home after completing his weekly television programme in the city of Lahore, his car was sprayed with bullets. “I was sitting in the back and instinctively ducked under the seat” he said, while glass shattered all around him. His driver Mohammad Mustafa was killed in the hail of bullets as the car continued to lurch until hitting an electrical pole. Rumi narrowly escaped with his life and suffered only minor injuries. But Anwar Hussain, a security guard in the car with him, hired as protection following the threats, received serious gunshot wounds and was paralyzed.

Raza Rumi’s ordeal was far from unique. According to Amnesty International research, at least 34 journalists have been assassinated as a direct consequence of their work since democratically-elected government was restored in Pakistan in March 2008. Since Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif formed government on 5 June 2013, at least eight journalists are believed to have been killed across Pakistan in response to their work. Shortly before the release of this report, broadcaster Hamid Mir, a prominent critic of the military and the Pakistani Taliban, was fighting for his life in hospital after narrowly escaping a shooting in the city of Karachi on 19 April 2014. Over a hundred journalists across the country have given Amnesty International first-hand accounts of harassment, abduction, torture and attempted killings at the hands of state and non-state perpetrators. The facts and circumstances of these abuses vary from case to case, and in different regions journalists face different types of risks. However, all these abuses share the common purpose of seeking to silence the media and stifle public debate.

Although six men were arrested for the attack on Rumi and an investigation is ongoing at the time of writing, impunity is the norm for attacks on journalists. In the overwhelming majority of cases investigated by Amnesty International, the Pakistani authorities failed to carry out prompt, impartial, independent and thorough investigations into human rights abuses against journalists,2 or to bring those responsible to justice.

Pakistan has a reputation for having a fearless and vibrant media. Despite this, or perhaps because of it, it is one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists, judging by the extent and severity of harassment and other abuse they face. The US-based Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) ranked Pakistan as the fourth most dangerous country in the world for journalists, while Reporters Without Borders placed the country 158th out of 167 documented countries in its World Press Freedom Index for 2014…

  2. Arzu India Google Chrome Windows says:

    Well the usual defense against such article is that ” more journalists are killed in India in one year than in a decade in Pakistan”
    many paki bloggers tell us that crime rate in Pakistan is at par and not unusual except for the bombings !!
    So why this fuss ?

  3. Shiraj M. Pakistan Mozilla Windows says:

    Who are you and why do you jump up with nonsense counter arguments to support the utter lawlessness in this country that has killed its mostly innocent and ignorant population, the statistics that has broken all the records of any muslim or non-muslim countries ? Any person who defends or ignores such the wildness here, is the dangerous sinner and he or his are bound to suffer at any time.

  4. Arzu India Google Chrome Windows says:

    Friend if it is so as you say than what are you guys doing about it.Why has the world not witnessed any demonstration of some strength in pakistan against whoever these guys are.i think your kind lack support in pakistan.
    Look at India , people here decided to deliver a tight slap to commie/leftie, liberal/secular types for incompetence and communal politics

  5. Shiraj M. Pakistan Mozilla Windows says:

  6. Arzu India Google Chrome Windows says:

  7. Ranger India Google Chrome Windows says:

    Arzu yaar, speech dekha?

  8. Shiraj M. Pakistan Mozilla Windows says:

    Friend, I will try to post henceforth some articles of research work of youths, If I find them.

  9. Arzu India Google Chrome Windows says:

  10. Arzu India Google Chrome Windows says:

    Shiraj bhai,
    Are you sure this is a conspiracy ? i understand from your posts above that you do not encourage Indians posting on pakistani blogs and pakistani topics so how do you propose to preach and propagate the intimacy and interaction between hindies and muslims.
    And sure i shall let you know about some Indian blogs once i find them but to tell u the truth i like PTH more than any !!

  11. romain United States Internet Explorer Windows says:

    How does Shiraj know that Arzu is not an Indian Muslim? After all there are more Indian Muslims than Paki ones, unless of course he thinks Indian muslims are not real muslims bcos of where they stay. An answer would be very interesting.

  12. Shiraj M. Pakistan Mozilla Windows says:

    Mr. Arzu, you have still not understood me and my point. I hereby place the article through the research works of the team work of learned and intelligent persons. Every sentence of the subject opens, with undeniable proofs and references, the curtails of the bogus hands that passed away playing with the future of Crores of muslims in Pakistan and Kashmir whose past, present and future have been lost and that is why it has been made the pretext to spoil the image of muslims everywhere. Pl. read repeatedly :
    1. Generally. to many students like us, always it strikes that why this country is extremely ill-fated and has been passing the most miserable life like the patient not living nor dying as if everything had been wrong , fraud and false in the very foundation of it.
    Fortunately some of our minds in research field noted the following matter passed through many references :
    Mohtarema, just read as under, with concrete proofs and references, and calculate and computerise as to whose land is this where the very first P.M. the foremost freedom fighter was assassinated for getting passed the OBJECTIVE RESOLUTION under the background of Kashmir Plot when there was no T of Taliban and no T of terrorism. This country is beyond your Mathematics
    How miserably Pakistanies have been mostly stupefied that they utterly fail to realize who are their friends and who
    Foes. The following eye opening comment was noted from a blog ;
    I have noted this REAL COMMENT from the appreciable blogs that reflect why we have remained BLIND for 67 years and passing the lives of slave animals in this most ill-fated country that has been turned into nothing more than an International Beggar.
    We some University Students have found the following comment exactly relevant to the present topic.
    It is factually said IN ALL THE SAGE AND SANE DOCTRINES that ” A HYPOCRITE IS THOUSAND TIMES MORE DANGEROUS AND EXTREMELY WORSE THAN AN ATHEIST OR UNBELIEVER ” Unfortunately, the Muslims of Pakistannd don’t realize this fundamental principle so they find themselves nowhere. They just start generally following any intriguer, whether swipper, cobbler, hawker , drunkard, shia,khoja, bori or qadiani from whatever mean decendents or circles, who raise the slogans of Spicy and Fashionable Religion. Blinded by all the outward pomp they didn’t think ‘WHO AND FROM WHOM WAS THAT JINNAH POONJA AND WHAT HE HAD TO DO WITH MUSLIMS OR ISLAM !’
    We, so many IT Unit Members through “Youths Research Union” have noted the following matter that the muslims of Pakistan have been suffering more and more due to the fact that, in this enlightened age of knowledge they have been still in the dark that in the British Era those so called Muslims who were the PET DOGS from public, working for British Regime, were used to be honoured as SIRS and so was Sir Syed. The explicit proof is the country Pakistan itself that was created through the dangerous conspiracies of Freemasonry ( anti-Muslim Jewish-Masonic conspiracy ) and Sabahi Decendents (Pharaohs believing themselves as the incarnation of GOD ) -Sultan Aghakhan who, in full command of the Aligarh Muslim University, made himself as “Founder Pro-Vice Chancellor” ( although he and his sect is absolutely anti-Islamic), hijacked Pakistan Movement and created from his sect, the so called Creator of Pakistan who was not jailed for a single moment nor suffered or sacrificed anything, whereas the genuine and real Pioneers, sunni muslims having sterling character and noble parentage with high education like Maulana Hasrat Mohani, Allama Mashriqi, Bahadur Yarjung who with their party members had passed half of life in jail. Their partymen and some of the family members were killed . They were all sidelined through the underhand dealings between Western powers and Minority sects and generally the duffer Pakistanies hardly know anything about them. Jinnah Poonja, drinker of high quality wine and fond of pork dishes, the carbon copy of an English man was made Founder of UK, US and Jewish planned Pakistan.In the later life he was converted as Shia according to Free Masonary Plannimg; to show aloofness from his Guru Aghakhan and to give foundation coverage to both these Sects so they can do anything unhuman they wish. That is why from these and the allied factions their dogs are commonly found in civil and military everywhere supposing themselves the only custodians of this country. Also from the very beginning, PAKISTAN GAZZETS ARE ALL TIME PROOFS that Jinnah, installed on all the Key and Commanding Posts whether civil or military his selected favourite persons from all the minority sects. Sir Zafrullah, a Qadiani (the parallel sect of Aghakhanies) was the Foreign Minister in the Jinnah Regime then he was promoted to UNO as Pakistani Representative with Kashmir folio specially at his hand. Again he was elevated, through UNO to the status of the Judge of International court yet it is the self-proclaiming proof what is the tragic plight of Kashmir for the last 66 years.The problem of Kashmir was the diplomacy to make perpetual enemies and keep fighting India and Pakistan for ever.
    Aghakhani Jamatkhana,Kharadar was built on THE LAND OF PORT TRUST THAT IS LEGALLY NOT USABLE BY ANY PUBLIC CIRCLE.( An aghakhani Habib Rehmtullah was the first K.D.A. chairman ) All the main financial concerns whether Govt. or private were monopolized to Habib Bank of Shias, Timber market and Tram Company to mostly Bories, Jubilee Insurance, Empress Market to mostly Aghakhanies. These are the few apparent examples ( with the start there were few countable big concerns ) , greater may be the inside mysteries..
    It is before all that in such modern times, Billions of Rupees of this BEGGAR COUNTRY are wasted on the security of the wild processions with the roadside show-business which is absolutely reverse to Islamic Ideals and civil discipline whereby NO Muslim is permitted to hinder any public passage or daily necessities of even any non-muslim for offering even the obligatory prayers-NAMAZ. Strange to strange are the facts that the homes and earning places of the people are converted to SUB-JAILS and they are not allowed to outside workings !!! These processions of Junglies, with totally unauthentic history of false fiction stories of Karbala ( for which only and only their fore-fathers and ancestors, the first and main enemies of Ahl-e-bait from Iran and Iraq, were completely responsible as the Irani Empire of King Worship was shattered after Islam),are deliberately led through the areas, (e.g. Binnori Masjid ) where there is no shia population or any concern, to add fuel to the fire. This jungle-raj is going on since the sectarian dogs of Jinnah have been sitting on high places. These Sectarian Terrorists, believing the wildness as under some heavenly command, put forward openly arms display that were used in the recent incident of Rawalpindi for the butchery and setting fire of the innocent children.
    The so called founder himself was the Greatest Sectarian !! By the time he became all in all. ( ANDHO MEIN KANA RAJA ). He was the Governor (no doubt of Britishers to serve their purposes), Party Head., Cabinet Head, Head of the constitution committee etc. As this country is the 8th wonder of the world, it is strange that the man, who is foolishly believed to be the Founder of this Islamic nation, could not make its Islamic constitution in spite of being all in all. After partition Shabbir Ahmed Usmani requested that Khoja to declare that the constitution of Pakistan would be Islamic, the Maulana was stunned to receive the Flat Reply that ‘this is NOT the time to talk such. In this reference it is remarkable to note that THE FIRST CHRISTIAN CHIEF JUSTICE OF PAKISTAN, RESPECTABLE A.R. CORNELIOUS TIME TO TIME EXPRESSED THAT “IT IS SURPRISING WHY THE GOVT. DOES’NT ENFORCE ISLAMIC LEGISLATION!!” (Pak Press Record ) It is also worth noting how he had stupefied the ignorant and duffer masses that whenever anyone would ask him about Islamic Constitution, he used to avoid the question by giving the airy reply that “Our constitution is already made up before 1400 years” At this the emotional fools used to enjoy that ‘What the nice reply ’ but the idiots could not understand what the NICE joke and fun it was! Similarly he used to issue ambiguous table statements ( generally prepared by western lobbies who had trained him during his self exile ) to let the fools be in useless complexity. It is quite understandable, in the light of the conspiracies against muslims that can any Aghakhani,Shia,Bori or Qadiani do anything for Muslims or Islam since they themselves have made self addition in the very first and fundamental principle KALEMA that was never done by any ummas of all the former Prophets (A.S.) and also in AZAN and have created every difference from Alam-e-Islam and have always worked as the snakes of sleeves , the main enemies of Islam. Their salam is ‘ Ya Ali Madad ’ and ‘ Maula Madad ’ It means H. Ali is placed in place of Allah T’ala ( Astg’ferullah ) Although it is on every reliable historical record that the period of the Caliphate of H.Ali was quite a failure and miserable at the hands of Hypocrite Helpers who influenced him to transfer his Caliphate to Iraq and in this way they got him trapped and behaved with him rudely that is reflected through “ Nehj-ul-Balaga ”( The respectable book of Shias ) that he passed the rest of his life as the pessimist cursing his so called helpers and ultimately he was assassinated by one of them. (Any authentic Islamic History ) Yet they believe that ‘ Imam is superior to Prophet ’
    In Iraq they joined their hands with American lobbies to come into powers. Taliban being highly successful to establish for five years the rule of law ending all sorts of corruption in Afghanistan, Aghakhanies invited US to come to save their Religious Fraud. To create the Western planned Pakistan, all the hypocrite sects under the plot through Sultan Aghakhan joined hands with their Western Masters. Again their followers being everywhere among us , serve the purpose more than that of US-CIA knowing every weakness to utilize at their advantage. Publically they undertake the welfare and philanthropic works such as establishing schools, colleges and Universities, hospitals, charity centres appearing peaceful and cultured, behind which they carry on anything against the Muslim Societies and any Nations of western interests.They are SO HIGHLY EDUCATED THAT THEY BOW DOWN BEFORE THE HUGE PORTRAIT OF THEIR IMAM WHO CLAIMS HIMSELF FROM THE DECENDENCY OF H.ALI BUT KICKS OUT H.ALI’S SHARIAH AT ALL.The most disastrous fraud of 19-20th century in the name of All India Muslim League was also founded by this Sultan Agakhan and its first and foremost members were Sirs,Chaudharies,Vaderas, Khans and all the extreme minority sectarian elements for their specific motives and its main office was at Lucknow the home of extreme Shias. The full planning of the Founder Dog and his Masters was to overwhelm and enslave the vast Sunni majority and to stop Islamic Constitution to take shape. The Planners and Policy makers of this League were two Britishers who were posted, one after other as Principals of Aligarh Muslim University.( most authentic History of Independence Movement by Majumdar ) All such goonda –badmash,opportunist and selfish elements and their decendents have been continuously riding over this unfortunate country and its 66 years history shows that the figure of the muslims killed in this country is the highest in the world in comparision to any muslim or nonmuslim country. Why is it so?
    Ask the new Muslims who have converted from Aghakhani (or Ismaili) Khojas as to what Sultan Aghakhan and his heirs, who make his followers to bow down before his huge portrait, have to do with Islam, Muslims or even Insan.
    He used Sir Syed, the fool with big beard and cap, as the Signboard by making that stupid so said Great Educationalist to implement the policies of his own sectarian hold and to brain wash of muslim youths. He had brought with him on one stage all the minority sects. All these Sectarian Heads drag away Billions,Trillions of dollars as Religious Tax from their idiot followers.As they charge Zaqat @ 12-50% from the Gross Income plus Kaffaras & Nazranas. According to them, for Ismailies there is no need of Namaz, Roza, Hajj, Wazoo, Taharat since they are supposed Jannati in advance. As said to them, Quraan-e-Karim is not understandable by the followers, only Imam can understand it. The followers are advised to read their sectarian book GINAN which was prepared by Sultan Aghakhan and there is SO MUCH inside.
    Also this great intriguer wanted to establish his Land-Sovereignty in the regions ( in Gilgit, Chitral and Hoonza that he could NOT have been able to do in undivided India ) where his poor and ignorant countrymen as his followers are in majority (of course the Paid and Purchased Followers). With this mysterious black background , he knew well that if Pakistan would be really Islamic country.all the falsehood of his Imamat,Sabahiat and his Mass Wealth will come to end. Every of the sectarian Heads is fully supported by the Western, UK-US and Jewish lobbies. That is why Jinnah Poonja who had nothing to do with Islam, Muslim or Insan, made the first part of Actorship as the ambassador of Hindu-Muslim unity and taking the advantage of communal differences, started preaching and propagating against Hindu religion and culture to effect his Masters’ “Divide and Rule” policies . Although our Prophet (P.B.U.H.) had never differentiated as Islamic and Non-Islamic countries like this and never He (P.B.U.H.) preached against any non-muslims as did Jinnah who crossed all the limits of disruption like his Guru Sultan Aghakhan. ( Ref. the lesson Pakistan Zindabad, Text-Book Class XI ) All about these research work, on the Press Record there is explicit proof that Sultan Aghakhan had got booked and leased very very vast land properties some 20-30-40-50 years before partition in the regions that were going to be shaped by UK-US as Pakistan which is so much different from what the real motivators and pioneers had demanded. So it is quite clear that the present Pakistan is the product of underhand dealings and conspiracies between UK-US and Jewish lobbies on one side and on the other, Aghakhani,Shias, Bories, Qadianies; the sects that have nothing to do with Islam or even Insan since their such dangerous plots have killed millions and millions of non-muslims and muslims alike and millions are living UNDESTINED and it was the full planning to divert the Muslim Destiny that has been done. Jinnah Poonja was assured that India must and must be divided according to the plot prepared by UK,US,JEWS and SULTAN AGHA. This is how the trained and fully backed Monkey was dancing as the most steadfast and unpurchasable since who can bid above his supporters ! International Political Game of US was to replace UK from the sub-continent by itself(US) that has been done 100% in Pakistan and 50% in India. Maulana Azad had shown red light against this before partition and all his forecasts have turned out to be true. It is hopeful that in the light of this, Pak Media accepted on the night of 23rd March,2012 that the partition was the conspiracy to break the Muslim unity and strength as the muslims of India were divided in FOUR fragments; East Pak,West Pak, India and Kashmir out of which the remaining Pak and Kashmir find themselves NOWHERE. The so said learned men of that time did not realize that in the near past, Kamal Ataturk of Turkey , like Jinnah was also manufactured in the Western Workshops to westernize and degenerate Turkey in the same way. To make the Aghakhani Jinnah a Hero , the “TUG OF WAR DRAMA” was set forth by his western masters like this “Masters: We will not allow you to separate and make Pakistan ; Jinnah : I will fight the case and will take it ” This was how he was made Hero and unnecessary and unwanted Advocate for the senseless masses who were trapped in the cunning plot as if receiving this country in the mode of merciful charity due to Jinnah-

    Dear Shiraj M. and Arzu,

    We always see the things with particular direction. That directions mainly created by governments (Real Stackholders). In every thing we keen to find conspiracies. Due to this behavior we loss the real things. Hamid Meer shot by mafia, if he wrote or said any thing We assume him GADHAR.. In USA top most Army man caught in miss handling his post, and court gave him punshiment, No any person said that Court is against USA..

  14. A. Rehman Pakistan Mozilla Windows says:

    It is strange that why people don’t try to realize the factualities and the real truth against the blindly accepted and so established falsehood and open fraud that is going to finish them gradually like the slow poison. In the article forwarded through Mr. Shiraj the complete matter has been placed with all the proofs, records and the visible scenario of the nation before our own eyes. It is not at all the matter just to ‘understand’, ‘ guess work’ , ‘ speculations’ or ‘ supposition’ etc. It is the self-proclaiming record of more than half a century. If still the people remain blind with what they are surrounded, they themselves have decided the destiney of the end and none can help them.

    Shiraj M,
    Bravo, the paper that you and your fellow students have put together based on the historical facts that you understand them to be, is admirable and could form a chapter in the history of Pakistan.
    However, the key factor that you guys missed out which is very relavent for the events todate and your thesis is not hypocracy but FEAR that Mr Jinnah unknowingly implanted in the Psyche of the Pakistanis when he solicited for the support of muslims for a separate state which is still live and is the driving tool for the political as well as military leadership. The only people who have not been infected with the virus of fear are the Talibans who do not have the compatable receptors in them. Now taking ‘fear’ into consideration you people could suggest to those who rule today, the way forward to explore the potential of the country which its students and people as a whole possess.

    The public writer, analyst or commentor who has no vast and wide reading about the world politics, civilizations, cultures, histories ( there are hundreds of branches ) with practical minute observation of the relevant circumstances and atmosphere , can’t put forward the realities behind the appearing syndrome around. Few people know that 75% (may be even more ) countries of the whole world run and survive on CONSPIRACY THEORY.
    Better than anyone else, they themselves know like the guilty conscious that they stand on false grounds and hence they create and make ‘ Hypocrites ’ in singles and masses to engage for them to serve their intended purposes. This was how initially the Christians among Jews and then Christians + Jews among Muslims created factions and sects who would be engaged and exploited to shatter the muslim societies. Under this vested theory the various factions among us and above all Aghakhani Faction ( who call them also Ismaili ) are used to implement their vicious policies to divert and degenerate the muslim societies.
    This was how Sultan (former) Aghakhan ( the Grandfather of Karim Aghakhan) did the Jobs;
    (1) Captured and controlled the Aligarh Muslim University, although he himself was the Firoan like those of Egypt as every of the so called Imams made his followers bow down prostrate before him or his huge portrait. There is the indication that when any of Aghakhan dies he, according to his will , is buried in Egypt near the bank of Nile, the abode of Firoans of Egypt, this is the wince towards his decendency.
    (2) He thrusted himself at the top in the foundation of All India Muslim League
    and made himself the founder president. The planning secretaries of the league were two Britishers who were then posted as the Prinsipals of Aligarh Muslim University. ( Most authentic history of Independence by Majumdar.)
    The first line members of this Fraud League were the dangerous Sirs, Chaudharies, Vaderas, Khans etc.
    (3) As the third step he picked up Jinnah from his followers to bebome the so
    called founder of nation through stage performance only (to divide India in blood-bath as per western planning ) without any shffering , sacrifice or going to jail for a single moment whereas the real pioneers of the movement had passed half of their lives in jail and some of their party and family members were killed.
    (4) According to prepartiton background planning, all extreme minority sectarian hands were posted on the key and commanding posts whether civil or military and the British Legisleture was enforced so that none can depose them and the plot chain would contue permenantly. Such secret hands have been doing anything and everything in the societies of this nation.
    (5) This plot was keenly implemented as Aghakhan knew that if this country would go on Islamic lines, his priesthood ( the idiots call Imamat) , mass income from his rascal followers and the sovereinty in Gilgit,Hoonza and Chitral would all disolve.
    (6) Every of the factions joined with the above plots as their sectarian heads had the same and common interests.
    This is the short account. The detailed history needs much time and space.

    M Iqbal,
    Your have definitely the best hindsight of all on PTH!!! Now try to mobilise your foresight since the world is moving forward and not backward, and for this one uses the brain neurons which innovate and not receive, create and not copy and this will reveal to you how the world functions. You have quoted small pins but not the big one, the most powerful one, who control the world and decide on war or peace.
