Irfan Siddiqi writes in defence of Dr Shahid Masood and against 'Let us build Pakistan'

Why is a key member of the Pakistani Taliban Union of Journalists (PTUJ) unhappy with LUBP (Let us build Pakistan). Did we steal his cow? Or perhaps he is unhappy since we have written against his sacred cow, the president of PTUJ, Dr Shatir Mossad? Here is his op-ed in Jang today:

Irfan Siddiqui, and Jang Group attack Freedom of Expression, Right of Criticism, and violate 1973 Constitution.

Every citizen shall have the right to freedom of speech and expression, and there shall be freedom of the press, subject to any reasonable restrictions imposed by law in the interest of the glory of Islam or the integrity, security or defence of Pakistan or any part thereof, friendly relations with foreign States, public order, decency or morality, or in relation to contempt of court, [commission of] or incitement to an offence. Every citizen, not being in the service of Pakistan, shall have the right to form or be a member of a political party,. REFERENCE: 1973 Constitution of Pakistan http://www.pakistani.org/pakistan/constitution/part2.ch1.html

One must raise objection on the comment of Mr Hamid Mir and Mr Ansar Abbasi that a blog http://letusbuildpakistan.blogspot.com/ carrying PPP flag!!! What does that mean? Should Pakistanis first have permission from GEO TV/Jang Group/The News International to utter something, or one has to ask for permission of GEO TV/Jang Group/The News International to exercise their Political Right that includes showing Flag of any political party. Both of the Top Journalists Mr Hamid Mir and Mr Ansar Abbasi were behaving as if we are living in Third Reich.

Bloody nincompoops licking zardari's feet no matter what he says or what he does.

You people are a real shame to this country.

It is known to the nation that PPP has bought Asadullah ghalib, nazir naji and imtriaz alam, but still their are still journalists who will not sell themselves in front of this corrupt regime.

Mr Umer how come you are so sure that journalists like Asadullah ghalib, nazir naji and imtriaz alam are sold to PPP. Why you do not think that Ansar Abbasi, Hamid Mir or Irfan Saddiqui may have been bought by the opposition of PPP?

In other words perhaps you are licking Zardari's opposition feet! Good luck!
