Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday condemned the wide spread attack on the media persons in Srinagar while discharging their professional duties.
In a statement PDP's Srinagar district president and MLC Muhammad Khurshid Alam stated that these attacks are in actual being carried out on the freedom of press and the party condemns it in its strongest terms. Alam said that such attacks on media are condemnable and no democratic system can tolerate it.
"We urge the Governor's administration to take action against anyone involved in such actions and bring them before the law as attack on democracy's fourth pillar is an assault on democracy itself," Alam added.
He said the media fraternity in Kashmir has been working amid the tumultuous times and is battling all odds to discharge duties professionally and with utmost sincerity.
