LAHORE: A new book written by renowned Pakistani journalist Sohail Warraich was removed from various bookstores in the country after some government institutions allegedly objected to its cover.
“These columns are already published, it’s a compilation, and it’s the title that they have reservations on,” he said while talking to an international news channel.
The book ‘Yeh Company Nahi Chale Gi’ (this company won’t run) is a compilation of his already published columns. The book had a cartoon of Prime Minister Imran Khan and Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on its cover.
The leaders of the opposition Nawaz Sharif, Asif Ali Zardari, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Maryam Nawaz were shown trying to look into the room from a window.
In an interview, Sohail Warraich claimed that he was approached yesterday and told the cartoon on the book’s cover belittles the prime minister. However, he did not mention who approached him.
“As I came to know, some quarters have reservations regarding the title of the book but I don’t think there was anything objectionable in it,” he said adding that they will change the cover of the book.
