'None can call journos dangerous anymore'

Press Council Chairman Justice Momtaz Uddin Ahmed on Wednesday said that a data base system is being formed to prevent yellow journalism.

"Once the real journalists come under the database, none can call them sanghatik (dangerous) anymore instead of sangbadik (journalist)," he said in a view exchange meeting with the journalists of electronic and print media at the Conference Hall of Cox's Bazar circuit house.

Real journalists would be given press council's ID cards on completion of the database, he said.

"All journalists will be brought under a training programme by 2030. We're working with utmost sincerity to make the profession more prosperous," said the Press Council Chairman.

He also urged the the newspaper owners to ensure salary and other allowances of the journalists, saying, "Ownership of newspapers should not be claimed without ensuring the financial benefit of journalists."   

Editor of the Daily Observer Iqbal Sobhan Chowdhury, also a senior member of the Bangladesh Press Council, said, "Newspaper is colourful, but  the fate of journalists is not colourful. Journalists' unions and press club work for implementing their rights."
