NEW DELHI: The BBC has come under fire after the network shot down C. Christine Fair, a scholar on South Asia, for speaking about Pakistan‘s jihad policy in Afghanistan during a programme.
“Really disappointing. @BBCWorld shutting down @CChristineFair as she tries to advance a cogent critique of Pakistan’s role in Afghanistan. This is poor journalism; not what you expect from the Beeb,” said Theo Farrell on Twitter.
“Shame on @bbcworldservice for not letting Georgetown University Prof. @CChristineFair finish answering the question. This is an example how if BBC censors Afghanistan analysis. It is a fact Pakistan supports Taliban, the Taliban leaders have Pakistani passports & work with ISI,” Mariam Amini said.
