A radio journalist, writer and translator in Quetta Barakwal Miakhel has been threatened last night by unknown people who phoned him and told him that he should not work for Azadi Radio (Radio Free Europe), otherwise he will meet bad consequences.
According to http://www.benawa.com, a Pashto website, the caller was speaking in Urdu language and was threatening in serious tone.
It is to be mentioned that the same unknown people had also threatened his predecessor Ghauth Din Firoten, who eventually left Quetta and Radio Azadi.
Barakwal Miakhel is my close friend and I know he works hard to achieve his career.
He requested all the media organizations, unions, and journalists to raise his voice until the ‘unknown people’ let him to do his work.
