Sana Mirza, Sohail Warraich among latest targets of attacks in PTI protests

The tradition of mob harassing women (and men) journalists in PTI protests is continued. The recent most victim of the mob treatment are Geo News’ senior reporters and anchorpersons Sana Mirza, Amin Hafeez and Sohail Warraich.

PTI chairman Imran Khan and other leaders have condemned the attack with the insinuation as if this was Geo News staffers’ own fault. They need to be reminded that Geo News’ anchors are not the only victims of their violence. Anchorpersons of other media groups including Samaa TV’s Ghareeda Farouqi have been harassed and attacked in PTI’s rallies before.

There’s no predicting on when these attacks will be stopped but is PTI leadership’s reaction enough?
