Niaz Panhwer -News Editor Daily Kawish

Mr. Panhwer was attacked when he was going to his home located at Jamshoro, near Sindh University Colony. He was forced to get off from his vehicle which was burnt by them.

Pakistan is already very famous for being a worse place for journalists. Attack on journalists indicates a growing intolerance in the society should be considered an attack on freedom of expression.

Authorities must investigate the incident and hold responsible actors accountable to prevent similar incidents in the future.

Solidarity with Kawish and rest of the Media
