Pakistani Journalists Protest in Karachi after Being Harassed by Armed Men

KARACHI, Pakistan – Dozens of Pakistani journalists gathered on Friday in the southern city of Karachi to protest after they were allegedly harassed and intimidated by a group of armed men.

According to the joint secretary of the Karachi Press Club, Niamat Khan, dozens of gunmen in plainclothes had entered the club on Thursday night and aggressively hounded journalists while inspecting several rooms of the building.

Reporters were seen taking part in a sit-in outside the club’s headquarters and holding placards against media censorship, with one of them featuring the slogan: “Gagging Voices Suppresses Rights.”

Pakistan is considered one of the most dangerous countries for journalists and Reporters Without Borders ranked it 139 out of 180 in the World Press Freedom Index.

In recent months, journalists throughout the country have organized several protests against censorship.
