The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) on Tuesday has called on Pakistani government to immediately restore the suspended ARY News channel.
The international non-profit organization working for press freedom has written a letter to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in this regard which reminds PM of the promises he made when a CJP delegation met him.
The letter reads: “The Committee to Protect Journalists is writing to express its deep concern over the recent decision by Pakistan’s broadcast regulator to suspend the privately owned ARY News, which is watched by millions in the country. We urge your government to ensure the channel is immediately restored.
Such action would be in keeping with the commitments you made to our delegation, when it visited Islamabad in March, to help improve press freedom in Pakistan.”
