Oct 25.2013, a discussion with Michel Martin: Do Pakistanis Support Drone Attacks?
TAHIR: I think the people that are actually under attack are not the people in Islamabad and are not the liberal class. The first line of people that are actually under attack are the people in the tribal areas. And there the issue again gets very, very complicated and I think it’s – it’s not critical thinking to think that because political parties are using this issue that it is therefore a sham issue. I mean, it’s true, various political parties have used this issue for their own political ends, but that doesn’t negate the fact that actually people are being killed.
On Oct 22.2013, I had the pleasure of briefly discussing the situation in Waziristan as well as the documentary:
We’ve got just $800 more to go! And, 14 days left. Thank you to all of you have supported us. Please help spread the word as we make the final push.
I just wanted to make a quick note of a few things here: First, I’ll be presenting at the DARC conference along with Shahzad Akbar, the lawyer who has been demanding justice for drone affectees as well as filmmaker and academic Wazhmah Osman. You can find out more about our panel and register here.
I’ll also be doing a reading at Page Turner, a festival by the Asian American Writers’ Workshop on October 5th. Festival details here.
