    In regards to this story published today by the Express Tribune tabloid which is a subsidiary of the Express Media group regarding a social media post made by Pakistan Defence yesterday, we'd like to answer the sheer misleading nature of the this particular mass media report.

    Pakistan Defence is a proud and open community which welcomes all sections of the society without any discrimination of race, religious beliefs, color or political affiliations for more than a decade for conducting free and open discussions on a range of different issues ranging from sociopolitical issues to the matters regarding defense sciences. We take pride in our egalitarian principles and for being the bulwark of free speech on the Pakistani Internet. We believe that the self styled champions of free speech should not attempt to suppress difference of opinion.

    We believe that all dimensions of a given issue must be discussed and nothing should be brushed under the carpet, therefore we posted the side of an argument which was deliberately being suppressed to make way for a singular argument to be sold to the public as a fact which violates the principles of net neutrality.

    The ridiculous allegations of incitement of violence published in the story of the Express Tribune against Pakistan Defence is a figment of their imagination and based on a single tweet of a single individual hence based on the personal opinion of an individual rather than facts. Such accusations are therefore strongly rejected. Pakistan Defence operates on the free Internet abiding by all the laws of the land and takes great liberty in creating the diversity of argument, while Mr Jibran Nasir is within his free speech rights to lay albeit baseless accusations, Pakistan Defence also reserves all due rights to politely reject those allegations due to their misleading nature as well as to take appropriate legal measures if required.

    We thank all of our friends and fans for their support. Thank you.

    In a moving video testimony, Mr Abdullah Cheema who is a close blood relative of Waqas Goraya confirms his cousin's involvement with the so called 'Bhensa Network' which was engaged in numerous Islamophobic activities. We at Pakistan Defence value the authenticity of information provided through our outlet, therefore it is only apt to post a convincing testimony of a close relative of the individual in question to independently authenticate the information released by us two days ago in great public interest. We do not intend to influence any outcome of this case and wish to remain independent. A detailed statement about our stance on this piece of information can be found on this link ( https://goo.gl/UBmGaz ). After having independently established the authenticity of our information release earlier, we believe that it would be quite appropriate for Mr Jibran Nasir to in a symbolic gesture, publicly withdraw his demand to arrest the team Pakistan Defence for releasing this information which he claimed was unauthentic and an incitement of violence, both of which aren't true. We are not in the business of demanding apologies, although we believe that the symbolic withdrawal of his earlier statement in the light of new and emerging evidence would go very far in public interest.

    Thank you to all of our fans for their gracious support - Team Pakistan Defence - SHARE/TAG
