Remarks of spokesman regarding fabricated report attributed to leader of Islamic Emirate by “Ummat” Pakistani newspaper
A Pakistani newspaper ‘Ummat’ published a report yesterday attributing a letter to the leader of Islamic Emirate concerning the passing away of General Hamid Gul. No such thing has occurred and neither has the leader of Islamic Emirate released anything in this regard.
It is true that the former head of Pakistani intelligence, General Hamid Gul, was a close aid for Jihadi organizations during the era of Jihad and the Islamic Emirate also appreciates the services lent by all individuals and parties to the just demands and Jihad of the Afghans against the invasion of Soviet Union.
However news outlets should recognize their responsibilities. They should strive to only publish the truth and not work for mischievous objectives by heaping such slanderous accusations upon leaders and pass it off as news because such reports will only cause damage to their own reputation.
