Sit-in to be held to express solidarity
Srinagar: A joint meeting of Kashmir Television journalists’ guild, Kashmir Journalist Corps, Kashmir Video Journalist Association and Kashmir Press Photographers Association was held on Friday in the backdrop of the arrest of freelance photo-video journalist Kamran Yousuf by National Investigation Agency (NIA).
The members in the meeting unanimously agreed that everyone among their associations have known Kamran Yousuf as a freelance media professional working from south Kashmir. The meeting also requested the NIA to come clear on the charges being slapped on Kamran Yousuf.
All the associations in the meeting decided to hold a joint symbolic sit-in protest, the date of which will be decided in the next joint meeting. The decision has been taken in the wake of busy schedule of all the journalists following Home Minister’s visit to the valley.
