June 2014, India Post Live
I was invited on the panel of IndiaPostLive.com’s live Webcast to speak on the subject of “Pakistan: A landmine for journalists?”
Journalists from both sides of the border came together to have an insightful discussion without reaching for each others throats.
I am brought in at around 00:18:30 but I am cut short because of the poor bandwidth. I again speak at around 00:40:20 and this time the connection was better (thank heavens). And then for the final comment at 01:02:00.

March 2009, The Guardian UK:
My coverage of the attack on Sri Lankan cricket team was also published on The Guardian as eyewitness account here:
I was in the classroom when we heard the loud sound of those bloody shots. We got curious, speculating about what had really happened and one of my friends passed on a joke and we carried on. But I sensed something was wrong and something terrible had happened.
Five minutes later, I received an SMS from a friend saying terrorists had attacked the Sri Lankan team bus and the police squad. Just then, a friend of mine was phoned by a relative and in the middle of the call he shouted loudly about the incident.
Everyone including our instructor got scared and our instructor was kind enough to let us go. My university is just near Liberty, the attack scene. We could see the traffic jam and a panic situation on the road outside my university.

March 2009, BBC World:
My accounts on the attacks on Sri-Lankan Cricket team were featured on BBC World here:
In addition eyewitnesses have posted their accounts. Farhan Janjua was attending a university class at the time of the attack. On his blog he describes the shock of hearing the gunshots and the growing tension which he and his classmates felt:
“Everyone including our instructor got scared and he was kind enough to let us go…. Rumours kept on coming from all over that there were huge casualties in this attack, few said that Sri Lankans were also amongst them.”
Farhan says : “My heart relaxed to know that Sri Lankans are safe, but at the same time, my heart started mourning to hear about the casualties of local policemen.”
