PESHAWAR: Journalists in Peshawar Thursday protested the harsh words used by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan against a television reporter at a recent news conference. The protesters walked from the Peshawar Press Club to the Chief Minister's House and chanted slogans against Khan.
"Every society has some form of etiquettes. Every individual has some dignity or some manners. There are some ethics in life and no one asks personal questions...you should be ashamed of yourself," Khan hit back at reporter Arif Yousafzai Tuesday who had asked him why he was unable to judge people while selecting close aides in either political or private life because whoever he selected ditched him in the end.
Khan and his journalist wife Reham Khan parted ways last month after just 10 months of marriage.
The protesting journalists demanded an apology from Khan and warned of more protests if he did not do so.
The protest was organized by the Khyber Union of Journalists. The union leaders called for Khan to take back his words.
