Attacks on journalists like @Razarumi and @HamidMirGEO are assaults on Pakistan’s media to speak truth to all sorts of power. #TimeToUnite

Hope & pray Hamid Mir recovers fully. Attacks on journalists are an attack on our freedom regardless of whether we agree or disagree.

Threats to journalists are from all quarters: state & non-state actors, violent gangs, pol. mafia, etc. Think of profession not YOUR group!

Murder attack on prominent journalist Hamid Mir is an attempt to silence independent voices. Sophisticated planning raises questions. Condemn.

Saddened by attack on @HamidMirGEO following one on @Razarumi. Stay strong, friends. Your voice being attacked because your voice matters.
Had @Razarumi been anything but a journalist-politician/lawyer/doctor/maulvi-the attack would be breaking/front page news across channels/papers.
“The further a society drifts from truth the more it hates those who speak it” GeorgeOrwell #PressFreedom #Pakistan #JournalismUnderAttack
These attacks are meant to shut down dissent. Long may you live & speak @razarumi @HamidMirGEO and all journos putting it all on the line.

Immediate & credible investigation of the deadly attack on Hamid Mir is a must to address all fears/suspicions.

The attack on @HamidMirGEO is cowardly & condemnable but equally condemnable is the small-minded pathology of media houses & owners.
