The UN General Assembly has decided to observe “World Press Freedom Day” from May 3, 1993 to commemorate the issuance of the “Windhoek Declaration for Pluralism and Independent Press” by a conference of African journalists held in Windhoek, the capital of the African nation Namibia from April 29 to May 3, 1991. This day is celebrated by remembering and honoring the contribution of journalists who were at risk and lost their lives during news gathering and broadcasting.
While the right to information is a fundamental right enshrined in our constitution, the security and freedom of the press is our responsibility. We salute the professionals who did not hesitate to risk their lives to collect and broadcast accurate, truthful and impartial news. “Karnali Diary” is fully committed to nationalism, democracy, good-governance, development, prosperity, life, liberty, civil rights and press freedom. Today, on the historic day of ‘World Press Freedom Day’ “Karnali Diary” (karnalidiary.com) has been launched.
