In 2006 when Nepal became a fully democratic nation, one of the many things that the people asked for was freedom for journalists to write what they want and they also wanted to stop the censoring of news. However till this day journalists are innocently being murdered because of their profession and news are still biased because tell me, when was the last time that you heard an article writing off the maoist led government. This is all being played by the government and I know that no one likes to read bad things about them or their group however as theyre of a higher status does not mean they have the right to filter news or arrest someone just because theyre expressing their views. After all we are living in a democratic country. Many journalists have died for carrying out their duty, so please I encourage that safety for them be upped and also if people go out and protest and die, theyre called martyr then why should journalists?
They should get higher status for the work they do and for the amount of time that they or publications such as Kantipur get harassed from groups such as YCL etc.
Maoist led govnt should think of a solution to the rising crime levels including the protection of the vulnerable and those who carry out difficult jobs.
Censorship in media should be abolished and one should be able to write whatever he/she wants as they can in a democratic world. This also includes any piece of information which goes against the maoist led government.
Lastly, us Nepalis can learn a lesson from Slumdog Millionaire and lets prevent before our city is filled with growing slums such as Dharavi with inadequate water/drainage faciltiies etc.
Some points i have made, may be inaccurate and wordings may be wrong.
