Army Chief of Pakistan & Chaudhary Fawad

Fawad Chaudhry, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, tweeted, “Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa while addressing the Defence Day event, stated fake news and disinformation were a threat to national security.”

“This analysis is founded on the truth, and therefore the Pakistan Media Development Authority (PMDA) is being introduced to cope with these threats since yellow journalism happens to be the greatest threat to media freedom,” Fawad wrote.

Representatives of media organisations criticised the proposed PMDA, calling it an unconstitutional and harsh legislation against press and expression freedom, as well as a step toward imposing state control over all segments of media via an over-centralized agency.
