Anniversary-One: Habib Sulemani & The Terrorland both face tyranny

Special Report

TODAY is the first anniversary of The Terrorland group blogs in Pakistan. On April 28, 2010, after the attacks on Habib R. Sulemani and his family members, we launched this group blog from hiding as the final option to help the family in danger.

From different sources, we came to know that in a very systematic way – as the secret agencies do – Mr. Sulemani’s family was being ‘removed’ in collaboration with an influential part of our mainstream media. The mainstream media was forced by a powerful group to keep silent on Mr. Sulemani’s issue as a part of the assassination plot – concocted in Islamabad and approved in Rawalpindi – so this blog proved the ‘lifeline in tyranny and oppression’ for the Sulemanis.

The society had either become deaf-and-dumb or had turned against the writer—it was a part of the punishment for being a ‘non-conformist’ writer in the militarized and Talibanized country. Independent thinking has become a serious crime in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. But the secret agencies can't enchain ideas of a creative writer! 

Primarily, the name of this blog shocked many people but the content was more ‘shocking’ as we had touched ‘taboo’ subjects with an ease! We’re facing many difficulties for helping the Sulemanis—so we’re in no condition to claim anything—just visit our archives, see the media and society's collective behavior! Tolerance is in the air!

However, personally, during this week, we’ve been ‘served’ a legal notice of defamation worth Rs.10 million from an official of The Express Tribune for posting an investigative report. The Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication (Moitt), whose in-charge is Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani, has issued five notices to us. Here they’re:
