KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Afghanistaninfo-icon Media Support Organization, NAI, on Monday expressed grave concerns over surge in incidents of violence against journalist across the country.

NAI’s Chief Sadiquillah Tawhidi told reporters if the government did not pay attention to tackle problems being faced by journalists then it would be difficult for them to have free access to information.

He said NIA was expecting the unity government provided more facilities and enable journalists to have access to information.

Tawhidi said a few days back, the provincial council head of western Herat province beat a journalist because he criticised the official in his report.

He informed, Ashooqullah Wafa, a law maker from northern Baghlan province, had warned the owner of Tanvir Television network Sher Mohammad Jahash during conversation on the phone.

Jahash reported Police Chief Aminullah Amarkhel was transferred on the pressure of lawmaker Ashooqullah Wafa and the people had staged a protest in favor of Amarkhel.   

According to Jashsh, his television aired report and exposed Wafa’s plan. He said the lawmaker called him and used abusive language and warned threatened him to death.
