Articles Pakistan Media was forced not to Run – VI

New Pakistan is continuing its series of publishing those articles that Pakistan’s mainstream media was forced not to publish.
 
Repression of the Pakistani media continues unabated in Naya Pakistan! Once again mainstream media has refused to publish an article by former Senator Afrasiab Khattak.
 
Sen Khattak’s son Khushal Khattak posted this on twitter today “The Nation did not publish my father @a_siab’s article today for “Namalum Reasons”. Censorship continues. Shame on all those who remain silent.”
 
Here is the first paragraph from Afrasiab Khattak’s article: “The GE 2018, called the dirtiest and most controversial elections by most of the political parties, human rights organizations and international media, seems to be heralding the collapse of the post-Zia’s martial law ‘republic’ in Pakistan. The creeping coup spread over last four years has eaten into the vitals of the fragile democratic system.”
