Hamid Mir has been increasingly critical of the Imran Khan led PTI government in recent days. He has been particularly vocal about press freedom and has maintained that arrests of opposition leaders appear to be a form of victimization.

However, PTI supporters have accused Hamid Mir of making personal attacks on PM Khan during a show discussing Daily Mail’s accusations against Shehbaz Sharif. Mir had said asked Punjab Spokesman Shabaz Gill about the truthfulness about an article published in the same paper about PM Khan’s ex-wife and daughter.

Social media users have offered mixed responses on whether this is a right decision on behalf of PM Khan. The PTI supporters on social media have also called for a mass unfollowing of Hamid Mir.
