We seek exemplary punishment against police who physically assaults journalists: Shaukat Mahmood
Written by Afrida Ahmed
Journalism is a grand job. The people of this profession have to face various challenges everyday. I think the police cannot attack journalists or the ordinary people. The action taken against these police is not enough. This displays the negative attitude of the government and the administration that they had against the journalists of this country. There is a trend of not getting justice. Due to this culture of impunity, democracy has been threatened. Especially in the case of the trial of murder and torture of journalists, the government is seen to be least interested. We, along with all the journalists are not united in these cases. We seek exemplary punishment against these police who physically assaults journalists. Today journalists are facing various threats and harassment across the country and we have to stop that.
