Mr. Hamid Mir
Geo TV and Jang Group of Pakistan
I am writing to you today regarding the allegations that you are somehow involved with the Taliban and the assassination of Mr. Khalid Khawaja. As you know, the Daily Times published the first transcript and the Let Us Build Pakistan (LUBP) website broke the story on the internet.
We have since seen constant headlines throughout Pakistan and the world – with many in the media failing to give you a fair platform to present your side of the story. In an effort to set the record straight, you have emailed the American newspaper, Washington Times, with a comprehensive defense against the allegations made against you.
Sir, I am writing as a member of the very blog that published these allegations. Though we have disagreed in the past, we here at LUBP feel strongly everyone is entitled a fair opportunity to face their accusations and offer a defense of their character and actions.
LUBP has formed an online radio show called Students 4 Democratic Pakistan. We have covered this topic and hereby invite you to participate in the next show – time of your choosing – where you are most welcome to call in and engage in a respectful discussion with our editors and bloggers. We would be honored to have your side of the story and a chance to discuss the details with you.
We eagerly await your response.
Let Us Build Pakistan
