JI ameer refuses to meet the press in karachi

The ameer of the JI “Munawwar Hasan” refused to speak to members of the press after what happened on his arrival at Karachi’s airport.

Some “misunderstanding” between the press and the supporters of JI took place on the Ameers arrival which lead to the “manhandling” of several journalists who were present to cover Munawwar Hasan’s arrival.

This led to the meet the press event at the press club turning into a full blown protest by journalists against the “Jamaat E Islami” on which the guest refused to speak to these journalists due to their disrespectful attitude.

I wonder what actually took place at the airport or how suddenly the press is disrespectful towards “JI” or is it because the press is now voicing the peoples opinion which is totally contrary to Ji’s stance on what is going on in the countries north.

In either case I feel Ji is making a big mistake here as the concerns of the press should be addressed and the media engaged to explain the Ji’s real position as people are getting confused.

    Messing up relations with the press should not be on the cards – sad to see that JI is visibly going that route. – it was stupid as it is to have the fiasco at the airport – and still they are not regretting this issue – as of now the Press is more powerful then mere thuggery – good to see that – but I hope the same trend continues to other spectrums as well.
