It is not the job of media to convict anyone

Bhatkal: A media workshop was organised by Majlis Islah-e-Tanzeem, Bhatkal on Saturday. Media students took part in the workshop. Maulana Mohammed Khaja Moinuddin Akrami Madani highlighted the role of media in Islam and urged that more and more youth should join the media field.

Convener media Watch Committee Aftab Husain Kola told the organisation will guide students interested to join journalism course.

Mr C Banti Padmanabh said a new trend has begun in media for nearly past 15 years due to which media has lost its stature. He said convicting a person and forcing their decision on the public is not the job of media, there are other institutions to do so. Media’s job is to provide correct information to the public. He said the media’s role is to pay attention towards solving people’s problems. To preserve peace in the country is the key responsibility of the media.
