Don’t harass journalists, says Hurriyat (M)

Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) on Tuesday appealed to youth to “act with discipline, maturity, and responsibility” so that no harm is done to the “sacred” cause.  It also appealed to the people to not create hurdles for journalists.
The conglomerate in a statement issued here said that elements working for agencies have infiltrated into the movement to sabotage the programmes of the unified resistance leadership to “spread disillusionment and create division and discord among the people on sectarian lines”.
“To stay alert and to defeat such forces is the collective responsibility of people. Hooliganism of all sorts must be discouraged,” the statement said, adding that no one should be allowed to give the movement a bad name.
The conglomerate also hailed the role of local print and electronic media for highlighting the atrocities carried out in Kashmir. “This media reports the facts and even at times risk their lives while performing the duty. It is important that no hurdles are created for the media nor should they be harassed as some reports suggest,” the statement said.
It also expressed concern over the reports of unauthorised and illegal constructions coming up at various places especially on the Dal Lake and foreshore road. “We warn these people to stop such activities forthwith. People should take such shameless people to task,” it said.
