The Indian Newspaper Society (INS), the apex body of the print media industry, has released a statement, condemning the attack on Republic TV editor and senior journalist Arnab Goswami and his wife in Mumbai.

Calling the attack “dastardly,” INS remarked that the act proves how political goons have no regard for freedom of expression. “The INS urges the Maharashtra government to take strict action against the offenders while ensuring the safety and security of journalists. Such assaults are indefensible and need to be universally condemned,” it stated.

INS also pointed out that frequent attacks on journalists and media professionals, through the abuse of power, is a “grave threat to the freedom of the Press and also an attack on right to think, express and speak freely in our democratic country.”

 It also urged the state government to bring the offenders to justice and ensure the safety of journalists. “Such assaults are indefensible and need to be universally condemned,” INS stated.

 Bodies such as the PCI and NBF also echoed similar sentiments today when they censured the brazen attack on the senior journalist.
