Imran Khan, a former prime minister and the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has announced that his administration will establish a journalism institution in Punjab in Arshad Sharif’s honor.
During his speech to the participants of the PTI long march in Lahore, he made this announcement. Imran Khan was a close friend of Arshad Sharif and wants to pay a tribute to Arshad Sharif and establish a university in memory of the Shaheed Journalist.
The Arshad Sharif Shaheed University of Journalism, he continued, will be the name of the institution (ASSUJ). Aside from that, Arshad Sharif and the media sector were honored during PTI’s “Haqeeqi Azadi” long march.
It is important to remember that Arshad Sharif was killed close to Nairobi, Kenya, as a result of what is known as “mistaken identity” on the side of the Kenyan Police.
The entire government is in shock after the death of the Journalist. The government and the Opposition are blaming each other as responsible for life threats to the Investigative Journalist.
The establishment has been under increased scrutiny this week as a result of the police shooting death of journalist Arshad Sharif in Kenya, where he had fled to escape allegations of sedition.
Kenyan authorities claim that Sharif’s death was the result of mistaken identity, but it has given rise to rumors that it was a targeted killing, and the Pakistani government has requested a formal investigation.
Tens of thousands of Khan followers, chanting “Arshad, your blood will bring revolution,” attended Sharif’s funeral. Sharif was a vocal opponent of Pakistan’s military establishment.
