ISLAMABAD - Baqir Sajjad, a correspondent of Dawn, on Friday regretted a circular of the federal interior ministry singling out a sect for allegedly spreading disinformation against the visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
In a tweet, Sajjad said: “Unfortunate to single out one sect for being responsible for online protest against visit of Muhammad bin Salman. Such sectarian profiling would only serve to further sectarian divisions in the country.”
Along with his tweet is a snap of the notification with the subject line – social media campaign against visit of VVIP’s delegation.

However, Ahmad Noorani, a journalist with The News, doubted the veracity of the letter. He asked if Baqir had checked out with the interior ministry.
Prime Minister Imran Khan is the minister in charge of the interior ministry.
