KARACHI—Pakistan Federal Union of Journalist (PFUJ) has hailed Sindh Assembly for adoption of Journalist Protection Bill which was sent back by Governor Sindh Imran Ismail with some observations instead of giving assent to the bill.
President PFUJ Shahzada Zulfiqar and Secretary-General Nasir Zaidi appreciated the positive conduct and efforts of the Sindh Assembly and cabinet members. They particularly praised Provincial Information Minister Syed Nasir Hussain Shah and CM Advisor on Law Murtaza Wahab for their unconditional support for the bill which was much needed due to rising crime against journalists and media workers. “It shows sense of sensitivity and responsibility of Pakistan People’s Party government and leadership towards journalist community,” the union leaders said.
They said Journalists Protection Bill passed by the Sindh Assembly will provide a sigh of relief to journalists and media workers and they will be able to perform professional responsibilities without fear and with sense of security.
“It is the responsibility of federal and provincial governments and elected representatives to devise laws for the safety and security of the different communities including media and hopefully the parliament and other provincial governments will also follow Sindh for the adoption of such laws,” they said.
Sindh governor has to accord assent to the bill within 15 days otherwise it will become law without his endorsement.
