Curbs on Me­dia Con­demned

Slogan - - News Buzz -

Jour­nal­ists, politi­cians, lawyers and civil so­ci­ety ac­tivists ex­pressed sol­i­dar­ity with Dawn news­pa­per and DawnNews TV chan­nel re­gard­ing their cen­sor­ship. Own­ers of news­pa­pers and TV chan­nels urged that they should not com­pro­mise on free­dom of me­dia.

It was em­pha­sized that peo­ple had the right to de­cide which news­pa­per they wanted to read and that those el­e­ments that had been curb­ing me­dia were asked to fo­cus on their busi­ness and let the me­dia per­sons de­cide what to say.

Protestors pointed out that it was not for the first time in the his­tory of Pak­istan that the me­dia was be­ing forced to cen­sor news and fol­low a line and that democ­racy could not flour­ish with­out free me­dia.
