Dunya TV anchor’s residence attacked


Unidentified attackers shot at the residence of Dunya TV anchor Muhammad Malick and damaged his car on Saturday, TV reports said. Malik remained unhurt in the attack, however his car got damaged. The attack came days after he announced to end his show “Dunya @ 8 with Malick”. Hours later, he tweeted: “Grateful to friends for expressing concern over the firing incident at my house a few hours back. Everyone was safe. God bless you all.” Although Malick announced that his employer had wanted him to focus on its upcoming English newspaper, and discontinue his TV programme, many people think this is not true. They point out that the programme ended because of “pressure” after he hosted a show critical of the army. On Friday Malick tweeted: “Anchoring of principles is way more important than anchoring any show. Never bowed to any pressure before -no matter what hue – and never will.”
