Journalists stage demo protesting sackings

Dhaka Journalist Union (DUJ) demonstrated on Monday protesting frequent sackings of journalists from different news media and demanding clearance of their dues (salary and Eid-ul-Fitr allowance).

The journalists held a rally at Kawran Bazar in the afternoon amid the festivity of Eid-ul-Fitr, biggest festival of Muslim Community.

DUJ President Kuddus Afrad said media owners are sacking their staffs and depriving them from different benefits amid coronavirus outbreak which is similar to violation of human rights.

He also demanded reappointment of all the journalists who were sacked during the crisis.

The protesters also threatened to launch tougher movement if their demands are not met.
