Mattiullah Jan confronts Adil Shahzeb over Sadaqat Abbasi interview
Islamabad: Senior Pakistani journalist Mattiullah Jan stole the show at the Islamabad Literature Show Festival on Sunday.
The journalist is being praised for confronting Dawn News anchor Adil Shahzeb for interviewing PTI leader Sadaqat Ali Abbasi when he was missing.
It was Shahzeb’s interview where Abbasi first appeared after he went missing.
Many people believed that he was coerced into giving the interview and Shahzeb was used as a tool.
Mattiullah Jan is known for speaking up for underdogs although he often remains at the receiving end of vicious attacks from the same people when they are in power.
