Islamabad: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said media censorship was a
sign of fascist government.
He strongly condemned media censorship by the government of the rally of Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz)
leader Maryam Nawaz and said that “it is a proof that Imran Khan is a Selected Prime Minister and his government is a selected government.”
In a statement Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the party which staged a sit-in in front of parliament for 126 days is not able to tolerate a single rally of opposition which proves that Imran Khan is unable to listen to any
voice of dissent.
He said the government censored the coverage Maryam Nawaz’s rally in Faisalabad. This is the worst form of
fascism, he said.
“The government is not tolerating opposition so it cannot be called a democratic government,” he said.
Bilawal said whenever opposition speaks in the parliament, the Prime Minister stops attending sessions of National Assembly.
“Production orders of opposition members are refused because this government and Prime Minister do not
want to hear the truth about the callous government which has made the lives of people hell,” he added.
“Gagging orders are issued by the government for journalists who criticizes the government. When the
government failed to crush the voice of opposition by arrests of opposition leader it started censor on media.
This kind of censorship is only witnessed in dictatorships,” Bilawal Bhutto said.
