"On February 10, 2008, he suspended three journalists for five days and fined them five days pay for using the Persian word for university ("daneshgah") instead of the Pashto word ("pohantoon") in their writings."
Is it necessary to add such information in an encyclopedia? The wikipedian has not respected the neutrality of wikipedia. (Ketabtoon (talk) 20:48, 28 July 2009 (UTC))
Yes, it is necessairy. And you can't just remove such information, a) because it is sourced and b) because it is relevant. Karim Khurram has been criticized by many for his - what seems to be - extreme Pashtun nationalism and anti-Persian/anti-Tajik stand. In a multi-cultural country like Afghanistan, plagued by civil war since the late 70's, punishing a reporter simply because he uses his own mother-tongue (which also happens to be one of Afghanistan's two official languages) is a very relevant topic.
