Journalists safety | Pakistan Today

Journalists safety

Freedom of speech is the basic right of every individual. The constitution itself vows to take the responsibility of journalists safety. Unfortunately Pakistan state has dramatically witnessed the vulnerable situations significantly on account of journalists safety.

According to the fresh reports, from September 1, 2018 till January 30, 2020; there 62 Federal Cabinet conferences held but none of any conferences have taken journalists issue as a concerning subject matter.

Furthermore in the same period, saven journalists were killed, six abducted, fifteen faced FIR and together 135 violations have been disclosed.

I request the relevant authorities to take concrete action on the above mentioned issue. Likely, we are already notorious in the international media on the journalists safety matter.
