Balochistan’s journalists have either quit the profession or they have become silent. Government has failed to ensure their safety. On the contrary, its own institutions threaten the journalists whenever they endeavour to reach the truth.
End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists . There is no journalistic activity in these districts of Balochistan: Khuzdar, Dera Bugti, Kohlu, Kalat, Panjgur, Kech, Awaran, Gwadar, Kharan and even in Quetta. There is no journalistic activity in these districts of Balochistan: Khuzdar, Dera Bugti, Kohlu, Kalat, Panjgur, Kech, Awaran, Gwadar, Kharan and even in Quetta. By no journalism is meant the local reporters and journalists are bound due to various pressure groups. They cannot report about any happenings due to the threats, because nearly 33 journalists belonging to these districts have been killed cruelly. And surprisingly, so far slain journalists’ killers are not apprehended. Nor are the problems journalists face resolved. It is worth mentioning that journalism in Balochistan is becoming challenging day by day, where journalists barely and rarely dare to write and report independently. They ruthlessly receive threats from the security forces, underground organisations, sectarian organisations, political parties, student wings, etc, when they endeavour to perform their journalistic duties bravely and honestly in the restive province. Due to these reasons, in Balochistan, doing independent journalism has become a distant idea.
