NEW DELHI: The BBC has come below fireplace after the community shot down C. Christine Fair, a student on South Asia, for talking about Pakistan’s jihad coverage in Afghanistan right through a programme.
“Really disappointing. @BBCWorld shutting down @CChristineFair as she tries to advance a cogent critique of Pakistan’s role in Afghanistan. This is poor journalism; not what you expect from the Beeb,” stated Theo Farrell on Twitter.
“Shame on @bbcworldservice for not letting Georgetown University Prof. @CChristineFair finish answering the question. This is an example how if BBC censors Afghanistan analysis. It is a fact Pakistan supports Taliban, the Taliban leaders have Pakistani passports & work with ISI,” Mariam Amini stated.

“Quite gross from @BBCNews: our “impartiality” doctrine was used to basically shut down @CChristineFair when she explained Pakistan’s jihad policy in Afghanistan that has brought us all to this catastrophe an issue on which there is no ‘balance’ or ‘other side’, factually”, Kyle Orton stated.

“How is it @PhilippaBBC’s job to shut a guest down? Surely, she could have invited a Pakistani official later to give their view. As a news anchor, she should know that many people have the same analysis/view as @CChristineFair whether one agrees with it or not,” former Pakistan diplomat Hussain Haqqani stated.
