Pakistani Reporters Scared of CPEC- US
China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) which is a multi-billion dollar project, currently construction of infrastructure projects throughout Pakistan, are suppressing the voices of reporters as well as the common public in Pakistan.
The former Obama administration officials have reported this to US Lawmakers, that there is a fear in the public of Pakistan of speaking against CPEC, as it results in being treated as anti-nationalist or branded as terrorist.
An article against CPEC is extremely rare as, there has being a media captured by CPEC, and only their views are expressed. No one dares to go against them as the anti-terrorist laws can be used against the reporters or the media and the channel. Worse things can happen if anyone goes against CPEC.
All this is quite threatening, and against democracy, it has already done a lot of damage to the civil society. As the Chinese model of development does not increase inter people relationships, they are not in Pakistan to become a part of their culture, China is only interested in money.
