PCI, IWPC demand time bound action in attack on journalists, urge MHA to provide status reports

New Delhi, Sept 22 (UNI) Describing the attacks on journalists across the country as 'unacceptable' and 'a worrying trend', the Press Club of India, the Indian Women's Press Corps and the Federation of Press Clubs of India today demanded that state governments concerned take exemplary and time bound action under Indian laws against those involved in intimidating and killing journalists. In a resolution adopted at the protest meeting at the Press Club of India, the PCI and IWPC demanded that state governments establish journalist welfare funds to meet the conditions of precarious employment, social and health security of journalists. The resolution demanded that governments concerned identify and take swift action against those posting threatening messages. It also urged the Home Ministry to provide a status report of all attacks on journalists in India listing how many were convicted on the attacks. The meeting resolved to organise a peaceful dharna on October 2 in defence of the rights of journalists. ' In view of growing attacks on journalists and attempts to polarise journalists, we urge the journalist community to be vigilant against divisive forces and remain united in the interests of strengthening Indian democracy and the freedom of the press. 'The meeting resolves to organise a peaceful dharna on October 2 in defence of the rights of journalists,' it said. UNI AR RSA 2011
