British journalist and presenter Hannah Vaughan Jones on Monday said that she was at the receiving end of “torrents of abuse” for interviewing Pakistani journalist Reham Khan.
Reham has been under the media spotlight after the release of her much anticipated and controversial autobiography where she shared details of her marriage with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf supremo Imran Khan, who is set to become the country’s next prime minister.
Speaking out on Twitter, Jones said that she drew a raft of abuse for the interview.
She also clarified that she had been invited to weigh in on the situation in the country with her “unique insight”.
The CNN presenter denounced those who wanted to muzzle free speech through such abuse.
Several users wondered why Imran’s first wife Jemima Goldsmith was not asked to talk alongside Reham.
Despite the criticism, there were users who lent their support to Jones and came down hard on the intolerance in society.
