ISLAMABAD—Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) has condemned the highhandedness of security and parliamentary forces with journalists while performing their duties during the lockdown in various cities of Sindh.
In a joint statement, President Shehzada Zulfiqar and Secretary-General Nasir Zaidi said, particularly in Karachi, Sukkur, Hyderabad, and other cities media workers and journalists were beaten on roads by security personnel despite having office identity cards.
“This is astonishing as it undermines orders from the Sindh government,” the statement said. “It is a normal practice that in such circumstances, journalists are allowed to work freely.”
The PFUJ leaders demanded of the Sindh government and the DG Rangers to probe the situation and provide safety and security to journalists working in the field and for reaching their offices without trouble.- Photo: AP
