With reference to the news item titled “Video of girl’s flogging in Swat was fake” (March 29), one would like to enquire about the source and authenticity of the claims made in the report. The report doesn’t mention the name of the NGO which allegedly provided financial support in the making of the video.

It alleges that some elements in the establishment needed public support for military action in Swat and thus engineered the drama to develop a hype about the matter. If an Islamabad-based NGO paid money to get a ‘fake’ video made, then did the Taliban spokesman, Muslim Khan, also take money to claim that the TTP indeed carried out the flogging?
