Have tried to answer all questions regarding Support Free Media in this interview conducted by HHTtv.net. Though the interview is a bit long, but you’ll get the vision behind my initiative Support Free Media and its roadmap. This was recorded on my last day in Karachi, I had a flight to Perth in few hours and this is Ramadan – so please excuse any shortcomings. Thanks to Ahsan Umar for organising this.

It seems that the unexpected political activism in Karachi for Elections 2013 has caused serious consequences for Muttahida Qaumi Movement, once the most popular political party of the Urdu speaking community. The apparent reaction to PTI, JI and civil society’s massive protests against rigging has resulted in cold blooded murder of Zehra Shahid Hussain, Senior Vice President of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf on 18th May 2013 and the murder of Abid Ilyas, former nazim union council Liaquatabad Town affiliated with Jamat-e-Islami on 17th May 2013.
