Govt asks media to publish objective news on ‘sensitive issues’

The government has asked the media to publish objective news on “sensitive issues” involving important personalities, politicians, businessmen, government officials and various institutions.

The Ministry of Home Affairs issued a public notice in this regard today.

“The publication of misleading news on important personalities, politicians, businessmen, government officials and various institutions is being noticed in print and electronic media which is deteriorating public discipline, tarnishing reputation, creating social unrest and creating confusions among the people,” the notice said.

It also said: “The government is confident enough about the mass media’s positive role to prevent deterioration of public discipline and social unrest. In this contest, the media is requested to publish objective news on such sensitive issues.”
