NEW YORK:: The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) on Sunday condemned Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari for imposing a ban on media, accusing him of “intolerable interference” in press freedom.

The IFJ welcomed the resignation of Information Minister Sherry Rehman and warned that President’s action would undermine the reputation of his government. “The President is guilty of the most intolerable interference in press freedom,” Aidan White, IFJ General Secretary, said.

“Her offer to resign shows a degree of principle in a tawdry incident that casts a shadow over the good name of the governing Pakistan People’s Party,” he added. Rehman decided to quit over differences on the government’s handling of the media.-SANA
