THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Underlining the need for a united   fight against the persistent bid by anti-democratic and fascist forces to stifle  journalists, Kerala Union of Working Journalists (KUWJ) has exhorted the media fraternity and general public to put up strident resistance against such forces.

Speaking at a press conference here on  Saturday, KUWJ general secretary C Narayanan said  majority of those who had made derogatory remarks against journalist Sindhu Sooryakumar acted solely on hearsay. 

“The trend of presenting inflated fallacies as facts is on the rise.

“People pass off lies as undisputed convictions.

Unfortunately a congenial climate is  prevailing in the state to unleash misinformation campaign,”he said.
