Putting a senior columnist and DAWN staff Cyril Almedia’s name on exit control list is injustice and we stand with Cyril. The article he wrote on the rift between PM and military was rejected by Prime Minister Office as fabricated – was later verified by other sources which were part of the meeting. Besides, we believe DAWN is a responsible institution which pursues its reporting fairly, independently and accurately. DAWN has verified and cross checked it.We demand for re-calling of that order which we believe is attack on freedom of express, protected by both constitution of Pakistan and several international conventions Pakistan has ratified.

Kindly share if you support Cyril and part of demand of withdrawal of his name from ECL.
