BBC news presenter Philippa Thomas is facing flak after shutting down US professor Dr Christine Fair in a viral interview. Dr. Fair had been stating that the Taliban were “Pakistan’s project”, when she was shut down. Thomas has now been accused of doing Pakistan’s “propagandist work”. Reactions to the viral interview have been strongly negative, as various individuals, including former Pakistan ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani, tweeted in support of Dr Christine Fair.
