Home Ministry urges media to publish objective news
The Ministry of Home Affairs has urged the media to publish objective news on sensitive issues.
A public notice issued by the ministry made the request on Thursday.
It reads, "It is noticed that misleading news on important personalities, politicians, businessmen, government officials and various institutions is being published in print, online, electronic and social media. And for this, it is deteriorating public discipline, tarnishing reputation, creating social unrest and creating confusions among the people."
The government is confident enough about the mass media’s positive role to prevent deterioration of public discipline and social unrest, the statement said.
In view of this, the media is requested to publish objective news on such sensitive issues, it added.
