Journalist’s murder: TTP contention

Published Mar 28, 2013 05:01am

The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan has strongly refuted the allegation that it murdered journalist Malak Mumtaz.

Not only that, it has condoled with the family of the murdered journalist and offered to help trace the murderers. Noted TV anchors have presented their above-mentioned statements as if the TTP fellows are quite humane and respect human life.

Ironically, these are the fellows who have murdered countless innocent people and have also murdered the spirit of Islam.

They could not care less about one soul.

The truth is that the media has become too strong a factor in influencing public opinion and hence the TTP cannot afford to be on their wrong side.
