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!

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.

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.

Anchor, Capital TV

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