Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has directed to take stern action against social media users posting negative content to malign the armed forces.

He has directed the cyber wing of the ministry to take quick action against elements criticizing the national institution and its officers, adding that, unjustified negative campaign in the pretext of freedom of expression is not acceptable.

Nisar further stated that any one who is intentionally and unintentionally defaming the reputation of country’s organization will not be tolerated.

The instructions were issued after social media users criticised the military cadre in its recent misunderstanding with the government over the Dawn Leak issue.

The critics on social media have been questioning the ISPR’s public ‘rejection’ of an order issued by the PM office on Dawn Leaks.
