KARACHI: A protest demonstration was staged by the journalist community in front of Karachi Press Club (KPC) on Saturday against Friday’s deadly attack on staffers of Express News Channel.

Dozens of journalists and politicians attended the demonstration.

Addressing the demonstrators, PTI leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi called for government to find an effective solution to eliminate terrorism from the country.

“Attacking journalists is a cowardly act,” he said.

On this occasion, PPP Karachi chapter chief Qadir Patel demanded the government announce a clear policy to deal with extremists.

Terming the attack on Express News as assault on freedom of expression, MQM leader Wasay Jalil said that MQM always believes in free journalism. He called on the government to provide security to journalists.
