Muhammad Khurshid: But he was stopped at the gate for checking.

Rob Kall: AP reports: "Journalists have played a vital role in our war by exposing the terrorists, so they are on the target list too like mosques, bazaars and security institutions," said Mian Iftikhar Hussain, the information minister for Northwest Frontier Province, of which Peshawar is the capital.

Muhammad Khurshid: Yes. He is true as journalists played the role of frontline in this war on terrorism.But the government of Pakistan failed in provision of security to journalists.Why they have not been taking journalists seriously.

Rob Kall: So they walk a narrow line, "fighting terrorism" while also profiting from reporting on terrorism.

Muhammad Khurshid: I think the government is duty bound to provide security to journalists.Yes my dear sir, this is the point.

Rob Kall: What is the local media saying about the attack?


Muhammad Khurshid: The attack is being condemned by the local media.It is really a bad incident.This is for the first time that a press club has been attacked.

Rob Kall: Can you tell me more about what the local media is reporting and their analysis?

Muhammad Khurshid: Even in Iraq the press club was never attackedI was just watching the Aaj TV channel.It said that it was a shameful act.As according to the anchor this is the first time that a press club has been attacked.He particularly mentioned Iraq and Afghanistan. According to him, so far no press club has been attacked anywhere.

Rob Kall: How are the journalists in the press club responding? How will it affect them?

Muhammad Khurshid: Now they are in terror.Now they want to postpone the election as the building of the press club is also in a shamble.It is now dangerous to sit in the press club.

Rob Kall: why is it dangerous to sit in the press club?Did you know any of the injured?

Muhammad Khurshid: Yes.One of the journalist Khuram.
Another person Fiaz.And so many others.Actually the blast has jolted the whole building.

Rob Kall: Who do they write for?

Muhammad Khurshid: Now there is cracks in the building.

Rob Kall: Will this affect journalism in Peshawar?
