ISLAMABAD - Individualland Pakistan, in collaboration with Washington-based National Endowment for Democracy (NED), has initiated a training programme for journalists of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan, says a press release. The training will focus upon print and radio journalists and would strive to enable the journalists to report on conflict constructively and in a manner which does not jeopardize their own well-being. The journalists will be sensitized about social issues of locals and how their voices need to be incorporated in the media. The trainings will be held at Peshawar, Charsadda, DI Khan, Mansehra, Mardan, Nowshera, Quetta, Mingora, Kohat, Gwadar, Tank, Upper Dir, Buner, Turbat and Chaman. Ms. Gulmina Bilal Ahmed, Director Individualland Pakistan and the moderator of these trainings said thatreporting on conflicts require courage and dedication and we are making sure that those who choose such a daring job also have the assurance of their safety. These trainings will endow the journalists working in KPK and Balochistan with necessary survival mechanisms to continue their work unhindered. This initiative will certainly improve the overall condition of media personnel in these areas and will assist them in adopting a set of precautionary measures that are necessary to survive in a deadly environment. Apart from the nature of the conflict, reporting of the ground realities becomes a daunting task, particularly when the parties of the conflict are altogether acting against the democratic forces including the media personnel/journalists working in these areas. Pakistan became the deadliest country for journalists with at least eight journalists killed in 2010.
