State institutions responding on Twitter poisonous for democracy: Nisar


A few hours after the Pakistan Army on Twitter rejected the Prime Minister’s House “notification” on Dawn Leaks on Saturday, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar said state institutions responding through tweets did not bode well for the country’s democracy.

“It was only a reference issued in lieu of the briefing given to the prime minister,” Nisar told reporters at a press conference in Karachi.

“A notification on the issue is yet to be issued by the interior ministry,” he added.

“There are several issues of great importance and it’s unfortunate that they are being dealt with through tweets. State institutions don’t communicate with each other through tweets. It’s poisonous for democracy.”

Nisar said the interior ministry would issue a notification in line with the recommendations of the inquiry board. “Nobody is being protected in the [Dawn Leaks] inquiry .”

Earlier during the day, Pakistan Army rejected a notification issued by the Prime Minister’s Office on Dawn Leaks, terming it incomplete and not in line with recommendations by the inquiry board.

The tweet came minutes after the PM’s office released a notice stating the inquiry committee’s recommendations had been accepted.

As per that notice, Special Assistant on Foreign Affairs Tariq Fatemi had been sacked because of his alleged role in the Dawn Leaks controversy.

The notice further read that “the role of Daily Dawn/Mr Zafar Abbas/Mr Cyril Almeida in the instant matter shall be referred to All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS) for necessary disciplinary action to be taken against them”.

Besides, the APNS will be asked to develop a code of conduct for the print media especially when dealing with issues relating to the security of Pakistan and to ensure that stories on issues of national importance and security were published abiding by basic journalistic and editorial norms.

The prime minister also approved the committee’s recommendation that Rao Tehsin Ali, the principal information officer of the information ministry, shall be proceeded against under the E&D Rules 1973 on the charges based on the report’s findings.

The government had set up the inquiry committee last year to probe into the controversy surrounding a controversial report by daily Dawn about a key meeting on national security.
