The Ukhrul District Working Journalists’ Association (UDWJA) on Sunday strongly condemned the attack on Thoubal Correspondent of a daily Naharolgi Thoudang Elangbam Rameshwor on Saturday morning by some unidentified persons.
“This act is viewed as an attack on “freedom of expression,” and must be condemned by every right thinking citizen,” said a statement issued by UDWJA president Addie Chiphang and secretary Ricky Angkang.
UDWJA urged the concerned authorities to take up the matter with urgency and book the culprits behind the attack on the scribe, and take immediate necessary action.
Stating that concern parties are urged to refrain from the culture of taking direct action on any working journalists over dissatisfaction with any publication of news, the association asked them to take up any issues concerning the publication of news with the concerned editors first and settle the matter amicably through dialogue.
“UDWJA fraternity shares the pain the family of Elangbam Rameshwor is going through and extends our full moral support,” said the statement.UDWJA, Naharolgi Thoudang scribe
