A month after the two failed suicide blasts during Eid prayers in Shikarpur’s Khanpur tehsil last year, the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) of Sindh Police wrote a letter to the Home Department and other relevant quarters, warning of more terrorist acts in upper Sindh in absence of a decisive operation in Wadh, Mastung and Jhal Magsi areas of Balochistan.
Former mujahideen leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, who also served as prime minister, is one of the most controversial figures, who is remembered for his role in the bloody civil war of the 1990s. He headed the Hizb-e-Islami - one of the Peshawar Seven, which has much influence in the professional class of Afghanistan.
Almost three months before the high profile Shahzeb Khan murder on December 25, 2012, a dead body was found in the same affluent area of Defence Housing Authority on September 26, 2012. The man murdered was identified as Ghulam Asghar Wagan. The story, like the victim Wagan himself, got killed and went unreported, said a police officer associated with the case, who wish not be named. In both cases, the accused killers belonged to highly influential families.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
