Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire July 29, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Murder attempts against three journalists, a fourth beaten unconscious January 28, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Pakistan RSF_en April 21, 2021 Find out more PakistanAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists PakistanAsia – Pacific News News Reporters Without Borders condemns an escalation in violence against journalists in the past few weeks including three murder attempts (two in Bajaur, in the Tribal Areas, and one in Hyderabad) and a severe beating in Hyderabad.“Aside from the duty of the security forces to protect journalists, it is vital that armed groups, especially the Taliban insurgents, put an immediate stop to their threats and attacks on the media. The influence of Pakistan’s TV stations is such that their provincial correspondents have become favourite targets. TV station owners must quickly find ways to give their employees better protection.”The home of Din New TV reporter Imran Khan in Bajaur was the target of a Taliban grenade attack on 7 July that injured eight members of his family including his mother. Khan himself is living in a secret location for security reasons. It was the second attack against him. He and his sister were hospitalised a few days earlier following a kidnap attempt. Khan’s father, Muhammad Ibrahim, who was also a journalist, was fatally shot on 22 May 2008 as he was returning from interviewing a local Taliban chief.Aged 24, Khan told Reporters Without Borders: “The Taliban have repeatedly threatened me, telling me I will be eliminated. This attack was not a surprise and I am steadily losing hope that I will survive this threat. I can envisage moving to Afghanistan because I have no way of protecting myself and my family here.”Sarfraz Wistro, the chief reporter of the Daily Ibrat newspaper, was attacked and beaten unconscious by five men at about 2 a.m. on 22 July near his home Hyderabad, in the southeastern province of Sindh. Although they took his mobile phone and 12,000 rupees (140 dollars) in cash, Wistro is convinced the attack was linked to his work as a journalist.Three days later, gunmen opened fire on a Geo News vehicle at Hyderabad, hitting reporter Anwar Kamal in the left arm. “The five gunmen fired on our vehicle from both sides of the street,” Kamal told Reporters Without Borders. “No group has claimed responsibility for the attack but it could have come from people who don’t like our reports. We are seeing a dangerous trend for journalists to be directly targeted.”Relations between privately-owned Geo News and the central government have deteriorated as a result of the station’s coverage of alleged corruption involving President Asif Ali Zardari. Representatives of the Sindh provincial government visited Kamal in hospital and promised to “pursue the assailants.”The home of journalist Zafarullah Banori in Bajaur was the target of a grenade attack on 26 July but Banori, who works for ARY One World TV and Al Jazeera was not there, having recently moved to Peshawar because he felt he was in danger because of his journalistic work.Deewa Radio reporter Irfanullah Jan and print media journalist Anwarullah Khan received threatening letters from the Taliban last month. The letters wanted them to “take care in their work” and added that “there will be strict actions if you do not behave.”Pakistan currently ranks with Mexico as the world’s two most dangerous countries for journalists.

Two years ago, I refused to use Venmo.Today, I don’t go a week without it. Most weeks actually involve five to six Venmo transactions.My personal change in thinking reflects what many credit union and bank marketers will find when marketing to millennials and their tech-native successors, Generation Z: convenience is everything.A recent FIS study found that 72 percent of all banking interactions today are digital, with millennials carrying the majority of that lead. Global Web Index says 68 percent of millennials prefer their mobile phone as their most important piece of technology, with nearly all online millennials owning a smartphone. Millennials want constant on-the-go access.I’ll be the first to admit I don’t fit most millennial stereotypes. I still keep my budget on an Excel spreadsheet and would prefer a personal life without social media. So, when Venmo came on the scene a few years ago, I didn’t want anything to do with it. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
