Work for creating journalists’ database going on

Joypurhat correspondent :

Bangladesh Press Council Chairman Justice Nizamul Haque Nasim said, the Press Council has no punitive powers except reprimand. Therefore, aggrieved persons do not want to complain to the Press Council. We have proposed to keep the provision of penalty.
He said these things in the speech of the chief guest at the inauguration of the training workshop titled ‘Prevention of Yellow Journalism and Objective Journalism’ at Joypurhat Circuit House on Monday. Justice Nizamul Haque Nasim said who want to be journalist, must hold a minimum graduate degree. There are many senior journalists who are not graduates. In that case, there should be five years of experience in journalism. We are already working on creating a database of journalists across the country. I got the list of about two thousand 200 people from 32 districts. Out of this, only 800 people have been accepted. Others have a bunch of paperwork. But we did not exclude them. If the documents are given, they will also be accepted.
Bangladesh Press Council organized this day-long training workshop in collaboration with Joypurhat district administration.

Secretary of Bangladesh Press Council Shyamal Chandra Karmakar said the real journalists are suffering. The great profession of journalism is now in question. If you want to stop yellow journalism, you have to act on your own. Those who are doing yellow journalism in the area should be listed.
