Manzoor Pashteen accuses Pakistani media of warmongering

Hours after the press conference of army spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor, Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) chief Manzoor Pashteen accused the Pakistani media of propagating terrorism at the behest of the establishment.

In an interview with the Voice of America, in which he responded to the allegations levelled by Gen Ghafoor, Pashteen said the media has given coverage to Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in the past; however, it has refused to report the version of his “non-violent movement”.

He said the Pakistani media was only interested in promoting “war” and it has always done so. He said media gives coverage to everyone, including Pakistan Army and TTP, but it refuses to give coverage to the PTM, which talks about non-violence and accountability.
