They have uplifted constructive approach towards both Administration and society. Media has to be critical at times when , the Government machinery is lacking behind; we as part of this mechanism have to absorb criticism and try to learn from objective reporting. Our media has played an encouraging role in present times, we should not succumb to premature narratives rather we have to fight a long war which can’t be won without the medium of communication,” Said Mr Mudasir Ahmed Khan, S.H.O Karnah.

It is media which has the power of opinion-making, that makes them more sensitive. Media, it allows itself to carry out professional work with ethics, can change society. You can destroy anything but not an idea. The idea is well shaped and polished only by Media , so for me, media is an important part of this system, with it the power can be questioned”.
