Probe ordered into threats to Hamid Mir

- December 22, 2011 - Updated 1430 PKT - From Web Edition

ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari has taken serious notice on threats to senior journalist/anchorperson Hamid Mir and ordered investigations into it.


Geo TV anchor Hamid Mir on Wednesday revealed he had received seriously threatening messages after his talk show criticising the security establishment and stated publicly that if anything happened to him, the security establishment would be responsible.


Mir also sent his message to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) in New York which quickly issued a blog condemning the threat and complaining that the Government of Pakistan had not done anything about similar threats to journalists in the past.

Keep up your excellent work, beacon of hope

Hamid Mir should continue his program from elsewhere as government cannot provide him security, they couldn`t provide securirty to governor and minister and the security agency offices have been attacked on numerous times.

In public domain, nobody is above scrutiny whether politicians or military establishment. Hamid is an independent journalist. He spoke and wrote about wrong-doings of everyone irrespective of whether they were politicians, civil bureaucracy, or military. This is disgraceful when people threat such an independent and unbaised journalist. We support you Hamid. God bless you! Hidayat Ullah Khan

I watched yesterday's capital. There was nothing against the establishment and i don't think security establishment may be involve in the issue. Someone else can take the benefit from the situation. So Hamid should be more careful. Establishment should be open for the positive media criticism.

Has Hamid Mir been purchased by the corrupt mafia?
