Geo TV anchor and journalist Hamid Mir on Wednesday claimed that he had received threatening messages on his BlackBerry following talk shows in which he discussed the political role of the Pakistan Army. “These recent threats are related to two recent shows on Geo TV. I discussed a story in The Independent in the UK reported by Omar Warraich on December 14 and raised questions about the political role of ISI Director General Ahmad Shuja Pasha. A constitutional petition was filed by [Community Party chairman] Engineer Jamil Malik on December 19 in the Supreme Court of Pakistan [asking the court to remove Lt Gen Pasha] and I was included in the petition as one of the respondents. I came to know about this petition in the evening of December 19. The same evening, I discussed the press conference of Baloch leader Attaullah Mengal on my show. Mengal criticised the Pakistan Army’s atrocities against Baloch. This show was aired in the evening of December 19 and repeated in the morning of December 20 between 11am and 12pm,” Mir said. He said he was “sure that security establishment of Pakistan is once again angry with all those who will raise questions about the political role of the army … if anything bad happens to me or my dear ones, the security establishment will be responsible,” Mir said in a message to fellow journalists.
