SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Monday paid glowing tributes to noted journalist and founding editor of Kashmir Media Group Dr Syed Shujaat Bukhari on his third martyrdom anniversary.
Party Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar while paying glowing tributes to Shujaat Bukhari said, “ I pay my tributes to all those journalists who lost their lives in the line of duty. On this day I particularly remember Shujaat Bukhari Sahib; the jinxed providence of our state robbed us from a bold voice in his shape, I pray for peace to his soul and much-needed strength to his family and friends,” adding, “No society can think of harvesting the fruits of democracy without securing its press fraternity with all the required freedom, safety and dignity. However, it is imperative for the press fraternity to uphold the dignity associated with the profession at any cost. The struggle by embattled journalists and the press fraternity of Kashmir to fight for the rights of people is commendable. I take this opportunity to salute the valour of our journalistic community, who notwithstanding curbs and persecution have been rendering their duties with dedication.”
