ISLAMABAD—Media Joint Action Committee (JAC) has asked Prime Minister Imran Khan to prove his allegations against media houses labeled in his public address on Sunday.
In a joint statement, the JAC said that Imran Khan alleged that media houses had been bought by political parties, and some were also being funded from foreign sources. “In effect, this amounts to accusing the media of corruption,” the JAC said, emphasizing that “Being in the government he has the resources to investigate and prove it.”
The Joint Action Committee asked the prime minister to understand that false and baseless statements about media houses would not serve any purpose. “Media and journalists are performing their professional responsibilities guaranteed by the constitution,” it said.
The joint statement further warned that if proofs were not provided for these allegations within a reasonable time, JAC reserved its right to approach the judiciary for relief against these scandalous, false, and defamatory allegations.
The JAC comprises All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS), Pakistan Broadcasters Association (PBA), Council of Pakistan Newspaper Editors (CPNE), Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ), and Association of Electronic Media Editors and News Directors (AEMEND).
