World Press Free­dom Day

Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY - STAFF RE­PORTER

KARACHI—The Sindh govern­ment is well aware of the prob­lems that the jour­nal­ist fra­ter­nity is fac­ing and is fully de­ter­mined to re­solve their prob­lems. Jour­nal­ist across the globe are al­ways un­der threats while they ex­e­cute their pro­fes­sional duty for bring­ing in­for­ma­tion to the doorstep of the peo­ple but the sit­u­a­tion in Pak­istan is rather dan­ger­ous and many have em­braced mar­tyr­dom dur­ing the ex­e­cu­tion of pro­fes­sional du­ties.

Sindh Chief Min­is­ter’s ad­vi­sor on in­for­ma­tion Moula Bux Chan­dio said this on the occasion of can­dle vigil to com­mem­o­rate the World Jour­nal­ism Day at the Karachi Press Club to pay trib­ute to those jour­nal­ists, who laid their lives in the no­ble cause of keep­ing the peo­ple in­formed, Tues­day.

The free­dom of ex­pres­sion and press could not be sup­pressed and when­ever it was, Pak­istan peo­ple’s party showed full re­sis­tance to the op­pres­sors and protested, said Chan­dio, ad­ding that the PPP be­lieves in com­plete free- dom of speech, ex­pres­sion and press and al­ways in­tro­duced and ap­plied mea­sures for the res­o­lu­tion of the jour­nal­ist fra­ter­nity.

He said that Sindh govern­ment al­ways val­ues the con­tri­bu­tion of the jour­nal­ists es­pe­cially their sac­ri­fices for the pro­mo­tion of democ­racy and al­ways ad­vo­cates for strong and close co­or­di­na­tion be­tween the govern­ment and them.
