Date: January 26-30, 2004
Location: Karachi

Internews, an international organization, working for journalism development in the developing countries conducted the workshop. Advisor to Sindh Chief Minister on Information and Archives Salahuddin Haider was the chief guest at certificate awarding ceremony on Friday, January 31, 2004.

He deplored that some reporters working for local dailies don’t authenticate their stories from officials concerned and appealed to editors of local newspapers to guide their reporting staff.

He said press and media were relatively free nowadays but some newsmen were taking unfair advantage of government’s relaxation.

Mr. Salahuddin Haider maintained that press suffered in Martial Laws in Pakistan due to unnecessary restrictions on it but the present government has adopted a liberal media policy and allowed private TV channels to operate and granted declaration for publishing newspapers in the country.

“I believe that press and media help in bridging gap between people and the government and nowadays, debates are regularly being held on various social, political and religious issues, of which nobody could think of in the past” he added. Lauding people running PPF and management of Pakistan Press International (PPI) for their services for promotion of journalism by organizing training courses and workshops, he expressed hope that these
