Al Jazeera has published a detailed coverage on the case, with focus on the social media’s role on the case.
The report states, “According to reports, Anwar left a suicide note allegedly blaming news organisations in contributing to his demise. While some are sceptical of his innocence, many have come to his defence and have accused traditional and social media of defaming Anwar before receiving his due process. Anwar’s supporters have now begun their online campaign using #Justice4KhurshidAnwar and #StopMediaTrials to demand a proper investigation into the matter”
The last part of the article mentions that the alleged victim has been slandered. We strongly condemn any slandering or vilification of the alleged victim and have issued a statement against the same. Read the statement here.
