JFA condemns threats to Manipur media

Guwahati : The Journalists Forum, Assam (JFA) has strongly condemned the combined threats to the media in Manipur from both official and unofficial quarters.

In a meeting held in Guwahati on Saturday, the JFA expressed its whole-hearted support to the Manipur media which is in the line of fire from both the militants and the State Government. In a resolution, the Forum said that in a democracy the media is responsible for and accountable to only the general public. Even in a conflict situation, like the one prevalent in Manipur, this basic tenet of journalistic ethics does not allow media outlets to peddle views favouring one party and harming the other.
