KABUL: Tariq Aryan, spokesman of the ministry of interior claims that some terrorists are busy in anti-government activities under the title of journalist.
“All in charges in WhatsApp and other news groups are informed to delete suspicious and unidentified accounts,” Aryan said Monday.
“Our intelligence and operative teams are working in this regard and we consider the founders of groups accountable.”
The statement comes after Taliban spokesman accused media outlets of being “Kabul administration’s propaganda tools”, threatening to attack them last week.
On the same day, intelligence chief also accused the media of propagating for Taliban.
“It is shocking to see some TV stations are propagating for Taliban. This is not freedom of speech but is a misuse of the freedom of speech and we will not tolerate,” Ahmad Zia Seraj told parliamentarians last week.
The Taliban and intelligence agency’s statements were followed by serious reactions from media supporting agencies who called the words as “shocking”.
The NAI media supporting body expressed concerns over the statements and warned that such sayings would make more limits on the media condition and freedom of speech. It called the statement s as violation of the national and international laws.
