KARACHI- Karachi Union of Journalists (KUJ-Dastoori) has announced to fully support the Protest to be observed on the call of All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS) and Council of Pakistan Newspapers Editors (CPNE), to protest against torching offices of daily Business Recorder.

In a statement President Maqsood Yusufi and General Secretary Tariq Abul Hasan condemned the attack, making its employees hostage and torching journalists vehicles parked in the building. They regretted that law-enforcers took no action when the building was being torched and did not bother to arrest anyone. They called for the arrest of those involved in the incident and for action against law-enforcers present at the site.

They said the journalists should be compensated for the loss of vehicles and appealed the people and workers of religious parties to remain calm, maintain peace among themselves to foil conspiracies of anti-Islam and anti-nation elements.
