LAHORE - The tragic death of a private TV channel worker sparked protest among the journalist community as hundreds of furious media men Wednesday organised a strong agitation outside the office of the TV channel. The charged journalists chanted slogans against the TV channel management holding them responsible for the death of the brother of seven sisters and the lone breadwinner of his family for not paying him for four months. No such a strong and massive protest of journalists was ever witnessed in the past as hundreds of journalists of all the unions gathered under one banner to express their solidarity with the family of deceased Azam Khan. The media men gathered outside the Lahore Press Club at 3:30 pm and later took out a large procession from the Club to the office of the TV channel where the protesting journalists staged a sit-in. They were carrying placards bearing different slogans demanding action against the management of the organisation for stopping the salary of its worker Azam Khan without any solid reason, which led to his suicidal death. The procession was jointly led by Punjab Union of Journalists president Shahzad Butt, Rai Husnain Tahir, Arif Hamid Bhatti and other prominent journalists. The protest continued for two hours. Addressing the enraged journalists, the union leaders of the PUJ and other senior journalists sought immediate intervention of President Asif Ali Zardari, the Prime Minister, the Punjab Chief Minister, the Punjab Governor and other authorities concerned asking them to take serious notice of the tragic death of the channel worker who was denied of four months salary by the management. The journalists announced to continue the agitation till action against the responsible is taken saying that the media men will set up a protest camp at the Chairing Cross. They asked the government to compensate the aggrieved family and put up pressure on those who had stopped salaries of the other journalists without any solid reasons.
