Mir brothers seek help against Lal Masjid ‘jihadis’

By Raza Ruman

Islamabad (Pak Destiny) Mir brothers seem to chicken out to the threats of the Lal Masjid Jihadis and have sought the help of the journalists body for a ‘patch-up’.
A five-member committee headed by National Press Club President Shaharyar Khan has been constituted to resolve the threats issue with the Lal Masjid administration.
The Lal Masjid people hurled threats against Geo TV anchor Hamid Mir, his brother The News staffer Amir Mir and Dawn’s staffer Kalbe Ali.
The press club has termed the threats as an “attack on freedom of press and speech.”
Sources said the Mir brothers have requested the journalists body to intervene to save them from Jihadis of Lal Masjid.
“Hamid Mir should better speak against such militants instead of getting intimidated by them,” says a fellow journalist. Pak Ddestiny
