According to Pakistan Media Watch, Mr Noorani, a protege of Mr Ansar Abbasi, is no stranger to religio-political hit jobs. According to research conducted by blogger Mohtasib, in April 2000,
In April 2000, Bahawalpur’s Civil Lines Police registered a case against AhmedNoorani for violating section 144 CrPC, which was imposed to refrain Sipah-e-Sahaba from provoking sectarian sentiments in the area known as a hotbed of sectarian militants of Sipah-e-Sahaba (see the police report).
Ahmed Noorani is an Islamabad-based (causally based in Lahore too) correspondent of The News, working under journalist-turned-taliban-spokesperson Ansar Abbasi.
In October 2001, Ahmed Noorani’s cousin Yousaf Noorani and his two initially unidentified accomplices shot and killed over a trivial matter a fellow Islamia University student Rasheed Ahmed at the doorsteps of Abu Bakar Hostel (see the FIR). Deceased’s brother Abdul Sattar was said to be an eyewitness who later identified the other two ‘culprits’, and one of them was Ahmed Noorani.
Ahmad Noorani is the same person who tried to incite violence against HRW director Ali Dayan Hasan and eminent lawyer and human rights activist Asma Jahangir by writing hateful, misleading articles against them based on lies and malice.
