Dispute between PID, Ejaz Abbasi must be resolved through mutual understanding: Butt


ISLAMABAD,(Parliament Times): Senior Kashmiri leader Altaf Ahmed Butt has said that the dispute between senior Kashmiri journalist Ejaz Abbasi and PID must be resolved through mutual understanding. “The Minister of Information and senior officials of the Ministry of Information should take immediate steps to resolve the issue and take a stern disciplinary action against the PID official involved in this unpleasant incident”, Butt said this while expressing his concern over the incident. Some elements he said want to create an atmosphere of antagonism between the Ministry of Information and journalists but this confrontational approach was not the proper way to resolve the problem. “Ejaz Abbasi is a very decent and senior Kashmiri journalist but the journalistic community should not lose patience in such kind of situations”, he said adding that the treatment meted out to Mr. Abassi at the hands of PID officials was unbearable.
