    IN response to a news report published in Dawn on Thursday, Oct 6, the Office of the Prime Minister has issued yet another statement, strongly denying the contents and rejecting it as a fabrication.

    This is the third contradiction issued by the PM office, the first one and then its revised and stronger version being released on October 6.

    Following a meeting of the top civilian and military leadership on Monday, the latest PM office statement said, the participants expressed concern over the publication of a “fabricated news story” in Daily Dawn pertaining to security issues purportedly discussed in a meeting of National Security Committee last week.

    The statement said, “the participants were unanimous that the published story was clearly violative of universally acknowledged principles of reporting on National Security issues and has risked the vital state interests through inclusion of inaccurate and misleading contents which had no relevance to actual discussion and facts”.

    The participants felt that it was imperative that Print and Electronic media refrained itself from speculative reporting and issues of national security and interests of the state.

    According to the statement, “Prime Minister took serious notice of the violation and directed that those responsible should be identified for stern action”.

    NOTE: Dawn would like to clarify and state on the record several things. First, this newspaper considers it a sacred oath to its readers to pursue its reporting fairly, independently and, above all, accurately. The story that has been rejected by Prime Minister’s Office as a fabrication was verified, cross-checked and fact-checked.

    Second, many at the helm of affairs are aware of the senior officials, and participants of the meeting, who were contacted by the newspaper for collecting information, and more than one source confirmed and verified the details.

    Therefore, the elected government and state institutions should refrain from targeting the messenger, and scape-goating the country’s most respected newspaper in a malicious campaign. – Editor Dawn

    ECL
    According to reports, Dawn's member of staff Cyril Almeida, who wrote the news report "Act against militants or face international isolation, civilians tell military", has been put on the country's Exit Control List (ECL).



    The ECL is a system of border control maintained by the Government of Pakistan under the Exit from Pakistan (Control) Ordinance. Those persons on the list are prohibited from leaving Pakistan.

    Dawn in the name of rating. But, it has some link with Indian NDTV. Because both has so much similarity in news publication.

    Sometime many elements inside PPP and PMLn tell reporters about subject matter of confidential meetings. They have no idea what is national security.

    on the one hand, impressed about Dawn taking a stand.
    on the other, disgusted but not surprised that after a momentary glimpse of wanting to stop terrorism and warning the ISI and military to stop supporting jihadi outfits, the Pak govt has been forced to deny that.

    I hope sufficient number of Pakistanis will see what the truth is and ask their military to stop supporting terrorists

    Are you sure they are not copying the same source ? Coz i have often seen Indian Sites copying word-by-word from International Press sources.

    the problem with dawn is that it plays too much into the hands of vested & anti muslim interests. Anyone that has read their columns & editorials should know that! Its time to be held accountable for defaming an institution!

    I am sorry but supporting Kahmir ( that is if we are) is actually supporting the freedom fighter ( I am all up for that)
    That is not considered terrorism by your own definition

    I find it funny how Indians here are telling us how we should run our affairs and which media outlet is good and which is bad.... Considering that all of their media outlets cannot even report regarding army unless their is a permission slip given to them by their Armed forces..... Truly Ironic....

    This kid Cyril is known for his childish reports.. no wonder he was used this time by his seniors at dawn.. and dawn is a newspaper that has regularly purported lies and unconfirmed news that go against our national interest , but they would never face hurdles. It's only people like shahid masood that face heat last time for speaking blatantly on PMs intention to become president getting immunity to dodge Panama.

    No, Pakistani media is not allowed to express monkey behaviour like Indian media does.
