Let the media breathe fearlessly

             

The media and the governments are important parts of the
state.

But an interesting fact is that every government looks
disgusted with the media and the media of every era also complains about the
government’s attitude. 

They manage to get their message across to the people,
but when the same parties come to power, they are the first to try to turn off
the lights. 

The image of the PTI has been formed and there is no precedent for
it in the recent past. The credit for presenting Mr. Imran Khan as a savior is
also on the head of the media. 

The poems were recited that many well-meaning
friends actually understood that only Imran Khan could be the savior of this
country. Came to power, the same media is sticking the tape of sanctions on the
face of the media representatives freedom of expression space.

There are
widespread protests against the legislation, while international journalistic
organizations and the country’s political leadership are in unison. 

Several
leaders including Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Maulana Fazlur Rehman Banafs
visited the camp of sophisticated journalists. 

Opposition leader Mian Shahbaz
Sharif also graced the protest camp. The daily Jang had such a hard time that
it was limited to just one page. 

But the Pakistan People’s Party, Pakistan’s
second-largest political force, has had a relatively better role in terms of
freedom of the press.

Contrary to the policy of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, he
maintained a friendly attitude towards the media.

What was not said and what
was not written about Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, Mr. Asif Ali Zardari, and Syed
Yousuf Raza Gilani. 

Just as the PML-N and the PPP laid the foundation of the
Charter of Democracy by burying their bitter past, so too all the political
elites need to bury their past in the media and formulate a new statement.

In
the era of a democratic government, front-line journalists are off-air Which is
not a good move at all. 

It is a different matter that the journalists who have
been removed from the screens of national channels are presenting Pakistan’s
case in the international media in a very beautiful way. 

All the names of
Pakistani journalism are patriotic. The style of expression may differ but
their patriotism cannot be doubted. 

Therefore, I honestly think that this
attitude towards journalists is not appropriate in any way. The Prime Minister
should look around and be wary of advisers whose attention is on the real
public. 

The government should not forget that the media could not be silenced
at any time. Censorship and blackmailing under the guise of advertisements
should be stopped. 

The process of blaming oneself for one’s incompetence and
incompetence should be stopped now. The PTI as a political party should learn a
lesson from the PML-N and the PPP. The PPP was declared a traitor, but still, the doors of dialogue were not closed, until the Charter of Democracy was
signed. 

The PTI will now have to open the door to dialogue by demonstrating a
politically mature ideology. The politics of grab and kill will have to be
buried. Demonstrating the same political maturity, talking to media representative
organizations Confusion must be resolved.

In the last few weeks, three persons in a row have passed
away with an irreparable loss. The first of them is Syed Ali Gilani. Syed Ali
Gilani was one of the great leaders of Occupied Kashmir who had a clear and
unequivocal stand on the independence of Kashmir.

His whole life was full of
struggle. He was a patriotic Kashmiri leader and a man with an everlasting love
for Pakistan. His death has also caused irreparable damage to the Kashmir
Independence Movement and Pakistan has lost a sincere and best friend.
