JKEF condemns barring of media men from performing their duties


Srinagar, Jan 26 (KNS): Jammu Kashmir Editors Forum (JKEF) on Saturday strongly condemned the barring of media men to perform their professional duties on the eve of Republic Day parade at Sher-e-Kashmir Stadium here in Sonwar.
JKEF in a statement issued to KNS said that barring journalists from covering parade is an attack on the freedom of press.
“Barring journalists to cover R-Day parade at SK Stadium Srinagar depicts Govt's callous approach towards media persons. The journalists are always bearing burnt and such actions indicate that how tough it is to work in Kashmir,” they said.
They added that JK editors always stand for the cause of media fraternity, thus condemn such action and appealed the authorities to look into the matter and ensure such actions are not repeated. (KNS)
