A dangerous profession

Share this on:

Sir: Journalism has become one of the most dangerous professions in the world. Latest reports indicate that close to a dozen international journalists and reporters are in lock up in Egypt, sparking protests for their release. On top of that, Pakistan has been at the top of most dangerous places to be a journalist for the last many years now. Still we see so many young boys and girls join what is fast becoming a noble profession, the only vocation that imparts some honesty to the information starved public. We must support our journalists and media personalities in every way.
