Who is a traitor?

Imran Khan has suddenly turned against the country’s largest media house, even accusing its reporters of being traitors. I would like to ask him why he does not stage ‘dharnas’ against the three major evils rampant in the province controlled by his party. These three evils are smuggling of practically all items into the country, manufacture of illegal weapons and the production of heroin.

Smuggling has destroyed the economy of Pakistan, illegal weapons have made it virtually impossible to control law and order, while heroin production is destroying the health of our youth. Who are the bigger traitors: those who indulge in smuggling, making illegal weapons and producing heroin or those brave journalists who expose criminals?
