Quotes

..."Hamid Mir was on ISI's hit list since Ahmed Shuja Pasha was its chief. Zaheer-ul-Islam continued the policy of his predecessor," Amir Mir said. "The ISI personnel are always present at airports. They knew his movement from Islamabad to Karachi and blaming terrorists for this act is just nonsense" he added
Pointing to a late March attack against a Pakistani journalist, an official with the Committee to Protect Journalists called the targeting of Mir "an indicator that the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has not been able to reverse the country's appalling record of violence against journalists, despite pledges to do so."
According to Lila, Mir reportedly, "called a friend of his on his cell phone to say that he had been followed by armed gunmen. He was followed for quite some time until the gunmen eventually reached him and opened fire."
On September 19, 2010, IM operatives opened fire at tourists descending from a bus near gate number 3 of the mosque. "Bhatkal had also planted a pressure cooker IED in a car outside Jama Masjid and a mild explosion took place after the firing" the chargesheet stated. Two Taiwanese nationals, Ku-Ze-Wei and Ko-chiange, had been shot
