I wonder why the mainstream media needs to MASSIVELY downplay on something as irrelevant as numbers.
The incredibly laughable bbc (bastardized-news broadcasting corporation, perhaps!) said about a major news event:
Security was tight as a crowd of about 30,000 gathered to pay their last respects to Mumtaz Qadri in Rawalpindi.
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-35693767 (emphasis mine)
The express tribune of the country of the incident itself, said:
RAWALPINDI: Tens of thousands of supporters turned out in Rawalpindi on Tuesday to attend the funeral of Mumtaz Qadri,
The guardian’s headline said
Thousands at funeral
while the story inside said:
An estimated crowd of more than 100,000 people have attended the funeral of Mumtaz Qadri,
Some of these papers hilariously publish a picture of the event, and yet, say things like this local paper says:
RAWALPINDI: Thousands of supporters of Mumtaz Qadri
You be the judge if the number of attendees looks like a couple of “thousands”or a mere 30,000 or 100,000. Most of these pictures are available all over the internet and social media, just 2 are shown below.
We pray to Allah to grant us honesty, decency, and integrity and not to let us become spineless, shameless, low-lives like the mainstream media.
