London-based BBC shut down academic Prof C Christine Fair when she started exposing Pakistan on live TV. Prof Fair was invited for a talk on the current situation in Afghanistan.
Prof Fair said on live TV “What Pakistan has objected to in the last 20 years is the emergence of a stable Afghanistan.”
She also spoke about how Pakistan has been harbouring a safe sanctuary for terror groups in the region.
BBC anchor Philippa Thomas did not like exposure about Pakistan. She objected to Prof Fair exposing Pakistan.
The anchor also says the instability in Afghanistan will create a refugee crisis in Pakistan, so how will it benefit Pakistan?
Prof Fair responds that Pakistan will use this to get more grants from the western countries. She said, “Pakistan will use it as a usual grant seeking strategy…Pakistan wants to monetise this thoroughly.”
She also talked about how Pakistan has been carrying out “incredibly outrageous terror attacks in India”.
The anchor abruptly says “we are going to leave it now” since no Pakistani diplomat is present to defend Pakistan.
Prof Fair responded “You’re doing their propaganda”.
Two books by Prof Fair are immensely popular: Fighting to the End: The Pakistan Army’s Way of War and In Their Own Words: Understanding Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, both published by the Oxford University Press.
