Srinagar, May 03 (KNB): Jammu and Kashmir Young Journalist Association (JKYJA) marked the World Press Day today and vowed to raise voice on diverse issues faced by the young journalists of Kashmir.
The JKYJA also expressed concern how sections of electronic media in name of debates are murdering journalistic ethics and urged them to refrain from this absurd approach.
JKYJA also paid glowing tributes to the journalists killed in conflict areas from Syria to Afghanistan, and stated that journalists on Kashmir too are facing many odds, like lack of freedom of speech, harassments and undue interference.
“We need journalism for humanity. Young Journalists of Kashmir present hope as they have lot of creativity, positive dynamism and can change all the paradigms of Journalism towards betterment in our part of the world.
