"A leading Pakistani journalist has been banned from leaving the country after writing a column that exposed significant rifts between the civilian government and the military. The report, written by journalist Cyril Almeida for the 'The Daily Dawn' -- one of Pakistan's leading English language papers -- on October 6, said the civilian government had clashed with military chiefs over the issue of homegrown militancy in Pakistan. Almeida, who was attempting to fly out on a holiday on Monday evening was informed that he had been placed on the Pakistan's Exit Control List, which prevented him from leaving the country."
