Sherry Rehman said on Tuesday that the media is not a corporate entity and it must never be run on a corporate basis. She expressed these views in a workshop on media on the topic of 'Free, Independent and Responsible Media. A number of other important personalities also attended the workshop and talked on the significance of free media. Media has struggled a lot to make a place in the Pakistani society. Dictators have been the primary hindrance in development of a free, independent and responsible media. But the government is now trying to strengthen the media by framing new laws and policies. Democracy and liberation of media are closely related and only a democratic government can liberate media. These kinds of workshops provide an opportunity to the media personnel and people to come together and share their views on how to improve the overall situation. ZULFIQAR HAIDER, Islamabad, August 4.
