Statement No 44

We condemns the attack on Zhovandon TV

Last day, while celebrating the martyrdom anniversary of national hero Ahmad shah Massoud some unrestrained youths in pretext of celebration raided the office of Zhovandon TV.

The violence began between youths and Zhovandon TV guards when the youths were trying to install some pictures on the walls of Zhovandon TV building, but they were prevented by the TV guards.

Afghanistan's National Journalists Union condemns the attack of unrestrained youths on Zhovandon TV and believes that no one has the right to intervene privacy without the consent of the owner.

While requesting from the security establishments to identify the perpetrators of this incident, Afghanistan's National Journalists Union requests  all media outlets to prevent broadcasting disrespectful and stimulated contents especially in national days.

Broadcasting such contents not only triggers the incidents in the country, but precisely it is opposite to the constitution and mass media law.
