J&K Government lifts ban on 3 newspapers, dailies back on stands

The Jammu & Kashmir Government has lifted the ban imposed on the three dailies – ‘The Shadow ‘, ‘The Early Times’ and ‘The Glimpse of Future’ – which were banned in the wake of alleged inflammatory reporting on July 1, 2010. The three newspapers have resumed work from July 6 onwards.

Confirming the news to exchange4media, Roop Lal Sharma, Chairman, ‘The Shadow’, one of the newspapers under fire, said, “We accepted our mistake and the District Magistrate allowed us to resume work.”

An official statement of the Government stated, “The owners and editors of these newspapers had approached the court, but no relief was granted. They then submitted a written declaration/ undertaking to the district magistrate stating that in future, they will remain careful while publishing the news/ articles in sensitive situations and will not do anything which can cause any kind of unrest in the society.”
