Kashmir Press Club pays tributes to Shujaat Bukhari
Srinagar: The Kashmir Press Club has paid tributes to Rising Kashmir founding editor and renowned Kashmiri journalist Shujaat Bukhari on his second death anniversary.
Bukhari was assassinated on June 14, 2018 outside his office in the Press Enclave Srinagar.
“The Kashmir Press Club joins Shujaat’s family and the journalist fraternity of Kashmir to pay tributes to a wonderful soul and a patron to the so many of the working journalists,” a statement issued by KPC said.
It said that during his lifetime as a journalist, Shujaat always promoted sound journalism and worked hard in creating an enabling atmosphere for the budding journalists in the region by offering internships and job opportunities in the media organization he founded.
“With his killing two years ago, the Kashmir region lost not only one of the most recognizable journalist faces but also an articulate voice who was always full of ideas for the well being of the people of his land,” said the statement.
The statement said that KPC wanted to organise a function to remember Nukhari but the raging Coronavirus pandemic forced the management to limit its activities to paying the tributes through this statement.
