EFSAS comments on the removal of Hamid Mir from Geo and its implications


In Pakistan, every single one of the small section of media persons talking about or writing in favour of human rights and liberties and opposing the rampant excesses by the State, especially by the invisible elements within it, deserves serious respect. The odds are stacked against this small group of brave journalists, and the benefits of their contribution towards an increasingly endangered cause may be felt only by future generations, but they have been perseverant even in the face of sustained, brutal and mostly mindless hostility by the State. One of the most courageous of this brave group has been Hamid Mir.
