IWPC expresses concern at Mumbai editor’s harassment
The IWPC would like to express its concern over the manner in which MsShirinDalvi, the Mumbai editor of the Urdu publication “Avadhnama” continues to face harassment in the form of threats, intimidation and multiple FIRs. We learn that newspaper vendors too have been picked up and arrested for having sold copies of the said publication. MsDalvi has repeatedly expressed contriteness over the alleged cause of hurt. If the state government is nevertheless obliged to proceed on the basis the laws of the land, it should ensure in equal measure that MsDalvi, her work and her family as well as others associated with the publication and its circulation are protected under the same laws of the land and not unduly victimized and deprived of their basic rights.
