We have now received formal resignation from Mr. Abdul Nishapuri, founder-editor of LUBP. On his wish we are publishing the same as his last post on this blog.
“I am forced to resign from LUBP because of serious threats to the safety of my extended family. I have already lost a member of my family at the hands of Takfiri terrorists, and can’t afford to lose any more. Information about my family in Pakistan was in the knowledge of only two persons, LUBP associates, one of whom revealed that information to a female NGO-activist in Islamabad. The details were subsequently revealed by the NGO-activist to a pro-Taliban cleric known for links with banned terrorist groups. In the given circumstances, I have no option but to resign. If my family or myself is harmed, the three persons (the betrayer, the female NGO-activist, and the Takfiri cleric) should be nominated in the police report for inciting to and enabling violence. I have specifically identified their names to Mr. Taj and a few other friends. My Twitter account too has been taken from me. I wish luck to the new editorial team which will take charge of LUBP in the near future. I also wish to thank all those who stood by LUBP in the hour of need, and supported our right to free speech and agenda of human rights advocacy.”
