Pakistani Media Promotes Terrorism: Manzoor Pashteen
Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) leader Manzoor Pashteen on Monday said that the Pakistani media was promoting terrorism.
Hours after Director-General (DG) Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor criticized PTM and raised questions, Pashteen slammed the Pakistani media during an interview with Voice of America (VoA) Urdu.
He said that Pakistani media ‘promoted terrorism at the behest of the military establishment’, and never fostered peace.
In a press conference on Monday, DG ISPR said that the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM), DG ISPR said that the movement did not aim to solve issues of people of the tribal areas but to use them to its own advantage.
“The security agencies have a few questions that they want PTM to answer. First of all, where does PTM get its funds from? How much money did you (PTM) get from Afghanistan’s intelligence agency NDS? And where did you get funds from for Islamabad Dharna?”
He said that the PTM was accusing the police and army of ‘murdering’ Arman Loni, but reports revealed that he died due to a cardiac arrest. “The PTM leader came in large numbers to attend Arman Loni’s funeral. They could have also attended funeral prayers of 10 security officials who were martyred earlier. They were silent then.”
