BEA Executive Committee Resolution Condemns Terror Attack on Media
New Delhi, January 10, 2015
The Broadcast Editors’ Association condemns in severest terms the recent attack by fanatics on Charlie Hebdo headquarters in Paris killing 10 journalists and two policemen. It calls upon the media across the country, to raise its voice against growing intolerance and fundamentalist terror of any type.
We have seen that in the recent past a sustained attempt is being made by fanatic armed groups to silence the voice of sanity. The BEA is of firm opinion that any attempt to silence media by brute force of gun is to the detriment of a free society.
The Broadcast Editors’ Association expresses it’s sympathy for and solidarity with the family of those journalists who were killed.
