Daniel Pearl story and Kamran Khan
Inside Pakistani media circles, journalists refer to “agency reporters” who loosely work for two bosses: their editors and Pakistani intelligence agencies. In her book, “A Mighty Heart,” Mariane Pearl the widow of Daniel Pearl the South Asia Bureau Chief of Wall Street Journal singled out Kamran Khan, a journalist for the English-language News in Karachi and a Washington Post stringer, who wrote the first story that identified Daniel Pearl as a Jewish reporter, information that Mariane has equated to a “death sentence” in Pakistan.Khan recently told the Washington Post that he was simply pursuing the story aggressively and didn’t mean any harm.
Khan also published intelligence agency efforts to link India to the kidnapping by raising the possibility that Asra Q. Nomani ( was a spy for India, claiming that she was Daniel Pearl’s “full-time assistant,” identifying her as an “Indian journalist” (she was born in India, but have a U.S. passport and was raised a Muslim in the United States since the age of 4) and reporting falsely that Daniel Pearl had brought her into Karachi to work with him. He also raised questions about why Daniel Pearl would travel to Karachi from India, where he was based, saying “officials” were “intrigued as to why an American newspaper reporter based in Bombay would also establish a full-time residence in Karachi.” Anyone familiar with the fractured relations between Pakistan and India can understand how this sort of characterization could tarnish Daniel Pearl’s reputation in Pakistan and weaken public outrage about his brutal killing, a goal some ISI officials might have wanted.
