World Press Freedom Day is being observed today in Pakistan and around the globe.

The theme for this year’s World Press Freedom Day is “Journalism without Fear or Favour” with sub-themes discussing the safety of journalists and all the media workers.

The state of media in Pakistan report issued last month by Freedom Network has expressed concerns over the escalating climate of intimidation and harassment affecting the freedom of expression and access to information environment in the country.

The ‘Annual Press Freedom Report‘ stated that at least 91 cases, including seven murders of journalists and a blogger, attacks and other violations, against media and its practitioners were recorded in Pakistan between May 2019 and April 2020.
