60 academics slam interference with Dr Siddiqa's book

KARACHI, June 5(Daily Times): Academics and professionals in the US, UK, Holland, France, Canada, Pakistan and India, including well known professors Howard Zinn, Ayesha Jalal, Shahla Haeri, Shahnaz Rouse and Phillip Oldenburg, have expressed grave concern about interference with the launch of Dr Ayesha Siddiqa's recently published book 'Military Inc: Inside Pakistan's Military Economy', and the threats and intimidation she faces. "Interference with the book launch in Islamabad on Friday of the distinguished Pakistani scholar Dr Ayesha Siddiqa's 'Military Inc: Inside Pakistan's Military Economy' gives us grave concern," they said in a statement issued to the press on Monday.

Although Dr Siddiqa managed to use the office of a non-government organisation after hotels refused to provide a venue, subsequently her phone service has repeatedly been disrupted while giving interviews. She has told the Committee to Protect Journalists and others that she feels increasingly isolated and physically threatened.
