PTI slams journalists Hamid Mir & Asma Shirazi
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) went after journalists Hamir Mir and Asma Shirazi by tweeting a video against them, claiming the two to be part of a ‘mafia’.
The official Twitter account of the PTI tweeted a video in which a clip of Asma saying ‘God forbid’ Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s Azadi march fails and another in which Hamid Mir is speaking out against the elected government.

Asma and Mir have been critical of the PTI government since the past few months. The incumbent government has been accused by journalists, civil society members and human rights activists of gagging the press in Pakistan.
