Journalists protest defamation bill

ISLAMABAD – Journalists demonstrated on August 1 against the proposed defamation bill and called it an attempt to suppress press freedom.

Speakers on the occasion called the bill draconian and warned that they would not accept it.

The press is the fourth pillar of the state but the rulers want to enslave it, they claimed. They threatened a countrywide protest if the bill was enforced.
