LeT terrorist Hafiz Saeed threatens Zee News in Pak gathering
The current escalation of tensions between India and Pakistan has not left media organisations untouched. Zee News has received an open threat from Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Hafiz Saeed on its coverage of surgical strikes which were carried out by the Indian Forces in the Line of Control (LoC).
Two days after Indian Special Forces destroyed terrorists launch pads across the LoC, the terrorists while addressing a gathering in Pakistan said, “Inshaallah, we will tell Zee TV what surgical strikes are.”
Saeed, the mastermind of 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai and also the chief of Jamaat-ud-Dawaah, has a $10 million bounty on his head as declared by the US in 2012.
Sudhir Chaudhary, Editor of Zee News, said, “Despite the threat, Zee News will keep airing fearless coverage on terror camps and terror activities taking place in Pakistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) and will continue to reveal their malicious intention towards India.”
Chaudhary further said, “We are not scared by your threat. We will continue exposing you. Zee News will not bow down with such threats.”
Zee News has also covered and aired stories of local Kashmiris who supported India after the recent unrest in the parts of the Kashmir Valley.
Earlier, Dr Subhash Chandra, ZEEL & Essel Group Chairman, had said, “Zee and Zindagi will not have any Pakistani content and/ or artistes from hereon in both fiction and non-fiction shows. This will continue till the time Pakistan stops supporting and perpetuating terror on Indian soil.”
