Continuing their protest against ban on Kashmir Reader, journalists on Wednesday held a sit-in outside the Civil Secretariat here.
The journalists assembled at Press Enclave here and marched towards the Civil Secretariat. The journalists staged a sit-in outside the Civil Secretariat and later pasted the placards, seeking revocation of ban on the newspaper, at the main gate of the Civil Secretariat.
"The arbitrary move by the authorities is unacceptable. Instead of guaranteeing right to express freely, authorities are gagging the media. The ban is also attack on the livelihood of dozens of people including professional journalists who are associated with this newspaper," said a journalist. The journalists urged authorities to revoke the ban on publication of newspaper.
