Social Media is Playing a Negative Role in Pakistan: Ch Nisar

Pakistan’s interior Minister, Ch Nisar Ali Khan has said that country’s social media is playing a negative role by spreading rumors and baseless facts, reported Dawn News.

Mr. Nisar was quoted as saying that such negative role by social media is affecting country’s progress against war on terror.

Its still unclear if Mr. Nisar wanted to imply that Pakistan’s Social Media is supporting terrorism or not.

Minister, during a press conference today, said that “negative propaganda” spread through social media brings down the morale of security forces.

At the same time Mr. Nisar specifically thanked journalists and said that mainstream media is playing a better and responsible role.

Ch. Nisar was briefing the media about security situation in the country after tough week in Karachi when Chief Justice’s son was kidnapped and Amjar Sabri, the renowned Qawwal, was killed during the daylight on the streets of Karachi.

It maybe recalled that government has been long trying to cap social media. The recent most effort is a cyber crime law that’s in process of getting approved from Senate, where it is handed over to inexperienced committee to decide.

    I wonder, how come mere social media propaganda brings down morale of our forces which are supposed to be exemplary professional? Moreover, if they know they are making progress, why do they get affected at all – unless the propaganda has an iota of truth in it. Above all, do they keep checking social media accounts during the battles/wars/skirmishes? Obviously NOT. Its the morale and PR of a few attention seeker generals which gets affected while they sit in their comfy offices and contemplate a lavish retirement plan.

      I think security forces should focus more on fighting terrorism rather than wasting time on social media, like gen bajwa sb. Ohh wait recently fauji tout govt paid 30 crores to Madrissa Haqqania, probably to boost morale of security forces.

      P.S: I m not from N-league or PPP either so PTI champs, please spare me.

    SORRY, it clearly shows how uneducated ch.nisar is…! have no clue what social media is. LET it be known to Ch. Nisar that social media is not owned by any one ….. FOR his information, India has appointed 100’s of S.M experts to advertise, propagate & pin point disturbing issues regarding Pakistan some of those are correct BUT majority of those are wrong and intended to defame Pakistan & Pakistani armed forces, government, etc & advertising terrorist activities

    Yeah He is right.
