Hey, Saeed: how about we work out a trade? You can have some of our pro-jihad journalists, and we’ll take some of your anti-jihad ones.

Addressing gatherings at Vehari and Multan in Punjab province yesterday, he claimed journalists were backing the agenda of foreign intelligence agencies and furthering “propaganda against jihad and the defence of Pakistan”.
He blamed journalists for promoting “hatred against jihad”.
