Freedom Forum is shocked to learn about flurry of attacks, threats, manhandles on journalists and vandalism on press vehicles across the country on May 20, 2012.
The banda enforcers and supporters of the Tharuhat Struggle Committee attacked Hari Sharma, Reporter with the Image Channel from Nawalparasi, district in the western plain of Nepal and broke his hand while making news about the banda today.
Freedom Forum therefore strongly urges the agitating groups to respect others' rights while protesting for their rights. More importantly they need to be restraint and media friendly in spite of imposing news on media.
Similarly, the government must provide security to the media houses and journalists working in risk throughout the country to protect people's right to information.
