Two Daily Times columnists told to stop contributing

ISLAMABAD: Two columnists writing for Daily Times have been asked their columns will not be published in future as they ‘come under scrutiny.’
Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur who wrote a weekly column on Balochistan-related issues and Mohammad Taqi have both been told to stop writing for the paper. Talpur said in a Facebook post: “Today I was informed that they will not carry my pieces any more as these ‘come under scrutiny’…. in other words are unacceptable to the authorities. ”
He said the struggle to present truth will continue.  “Truth will Prevail. The Forces of Darkness will be Defeated.”
He credited Daily Times editor Rashed Rehman for publishing without editing whatever he wrote.
Meanwhile  Rashed Rehman has reportedly submitted his resignation.
