The journalist even resorted to personal attacks against the prime minister in his show-Capital Talk on Geo TV. Some journalists are raising their voices against the media censorship in the present government. Among them was Mir, who made a series of comments against rising censorship in PTI’s government and termed Imran Khan’s rule a civilian dictatorship.
However, the government has precluded the claims against freedom of speech.
Earlier, Hamid Mir’s video had also gone viral on social media where he demanded his arrest which was termed by the PTI supporters as propaganda against the government under the pretext of freedom of media.

Following Khan’s this recent activity, his supporters had been carrying out a campaign against Hamid Mir by posting their ‘un-follow Hamid Mir’ screen shots.
