KARACHI: With reference to the article “Protesting against apologists” by Basil Nabi Malik (December 23), if the electronic media cannot give adequate coverage to moderate and liberal people, at least it should not invite those who are known to have made controversial statements.
Someone like the former Amir of the Jamaat-e-Islami Munnawar Hassan should especially be avoided who advised rape victims not to report the crime to the police and suffer in silence. It is people like him who have brainwashed the people of this country. They are the ones who should be ostracised.
