Responding to a reader’s request to comment on Khan’s clarification, Borger said, “Khan himself is not saying we misquoted him, only that we took his remarks out of context, but we provided the context, as you can see in the story.”
Earlier, Imran Khan said that his remarks about an attack on Salman Rushdie were taken out of context.
The former prime minister said he talked against the mob justice which happened to a Sri Lankan factory manager in Sialkot.
