Pakistan, Or shut up, or you are accusing of terrorism, the crackdown against dissent
the ISLAMABAD (AsiaNews/Agencies) – Or appears to trial for propaganda against the government, or it will be accused of terrorism: is the threat directed by the agency for the security of Islamabad to a well-known activist. Reveals Radio Gadhara, an online service affiliated with Radio Free Europe. The activist in question - we learn by Asianews - is Gul Bukhari, self-exiled in the United Kingdom after a brief kidnapping in 2018 to escape to pressures of the government, which wanted to reduce it to silence.

How to repress dissent. February 11, the branch anti-terrorism of the Federal Investigation Agency (Fia) has ordered the woman to appear in court to answer charges of propaganda online against the government, the organizations of the national security and the judicial system. According to organizations that defend human rights and freedom of the press and of expression, in this way, the pakistani authorities want to repress dissent, not only by those who live within national borders, but also those that live abroad.

criticism for the crackdown on the Pashtun. Gul Bukhari has already been subjected to attempts of reducing to silence. In may 2018, activist, 54-year old, at the time collaborator of the newspaper The Nation and a columnist and television, has been kidnapped by some gangsters in Lahore, while he was in a television studio to record a broadcast. The woman is famous for his opinions critical of the pakistani army and forced disappearances by members of the military, and has a large following especially on social media. Thanks to the freedom of speech is guaranteed by the network, and denounces the repression of the movement, the Pashtun, civil rights advocates and who ends up in the crosshairs of the authorities for the invectives against the power groups.

journalists silenced. To Reporters without borders, the law “is often used by the authorities to silence journalists who dare to pass over the implicit red line of the regime.” The Committee to Protect Journalist (Cpj) regrets that the pakistani authorities may require the extradition of activist through the Interpol, and freeze all the property of the woman. At the time, Bukhari said that the Committee do not fear the forced repatriation, but is not going to occur in the process. For Steven Butler, the coordinator of Cpj, “threaten d to prosecute a journalist for terrorism and confiscarne the properties for the comments on social media or published articles is absurd, and just reveals the extreme insecurity of the government”.
