Remove media curbs : SAMC

CHENNAI: The South Asia Media Commission (SAMC) on Wednesday demanded that restrictions imposed on the media in Pakistan be removed immediately and that all the arrested journalists be released.

SAMC chairman N. Ram and S. Nihal Singh, member of the India chapter of SAMC, said the Commission had been watching the recent events in Pakistan with growing concern.

“It condemns, in the strongest terms, the muzzling of the print media, the silencing of private television channels and the arrest and abuse of media personnel. These measures have been taken under the rubric of the emergency regime,” they said in a statement here.

The Pakistani media have the support and sympathy of their colleagues in South Asia in their hour of travail, they added. — PTI
