Afghanistan bans Pakistani newspapers publication

By Sajad - Sat Sep 22 2012, 1:35 pm

Afghan interior ministry banned all the publication and distribution of all Pakistani newspapers in eastern provinces of Afghanistan.

Chief of the border protection police forces in eastern Afghanistan Gen. Mohammad Ayoub Hussain Khel said they have banned all the publications and distribution of Pakistani newspapers following a decree from the interior ministry.

More than 10 Pakistani newspapers have been published and distributed in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan where Wahdat, Jerga and Khabarona newspapers are widely distributed in this province.

The newspapers were published in Pashtu and Urdu languages and were mostly published from the Peshawar city of Pakistan.

Pakistani newspapers are sold from 10 to 30 Pakistani rupees and reports suggest that more than 2000 copies of the newspapers are distributed in eastern Nangarhar province.

In the meantime a number of Afghan reporters said that the articles published in Pakistani newspapers are against the values and morals of the Afghan people.

Mohammad Ayoub also said that the Pakistani newspapers including Wahdat, Jerga, Mashriq and Aaj were publishing articles against the sovereignty of the Afghan government.

Provincial information and culture chief Aurang Samim said they have reacted towards the publication and distribution of the Pakistani newspapers in this province earlier.

He said, Afghan security forces should act to prevent the publication of Pakistani newspapers and the provincial information and culture department has already expressed concerns to the related government organizations before.

  1. John Stuart Mill proved long ago that the benefit of freedom of the press is that it assures the continuing growth and relevance of our most cherished institutions: 
    “The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is that it is robbing [us.] … 
    If the opinion is right, [we] are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, [we] lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.”

  2. Good decision… If it is in the favor of Afghanistan.

  3. nice information ,,yes wali it is Good decision… If it is in the favor of Afghanistan.

  5. Good Decision.!!

  6. I take a great decision. I appreciate you thinking

  7. good information but its not fair Pakistan always support then and shelter them when these was in difficulty .

  8. The pakistan country is the back stabber to india and US countries. The terrorists are supported from pakistan government including its army and ISI with food, shelter and currency. The pakistan taliban terrorist Hakimullah mehsud was deserve to die like this way itself. Unless, these terrorists will not learn and they will destroy whole society and its environment. The pakistan Prime minister going to US to meet president to take back drone strikes should be objected. The drone attack, strikes is essential unless all the terrorists eliminated. The JuD terrorists baffoon-like, beggar-like Mohd. Hafeez Saeed should come across over same fate what the Mehsud happnened. So it is better to hand over to the Indian government for his terrorist activities or he must surrender to indian Government. Whenever terrorists is killed in pakistan the pakistan government will protest. Why. Are they are not ashamed off.
