11/18/2012 9:56:10 PM

Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 18: The idea of Jammu and Kashmir has to be preserved as envisaged by Sher-e-Kashmir Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah which is microcosm of the idea of India. The strength of idea is in preserving the multi-ethos of J&K, said Devender Singh Rana, Political Advisor to the Chief Minister while speaking at the award giving away function of Pt. Prem Nath Bhat Memorial Amateur Journalists Awards 2012 organized by the Prem Nath Bhat Memorial Trust here today.
Rana said it is the duty of all who are born in J&K to preserve the rich multi cultural, multi regional, and multi ethnic ethos of the state. He said idea of Jammu and Kashmir cannot be bartered at the hands of any consideration, political, regional, ethnic or otherwise because if the composite pluralistic character of Jammu and Kashmir is not preserved and its secular fabric is not strengthened it will not only defeat the idea of J&K but will defeat the idea of India.
Paying glowing tributes to Pt. Prem Nath Bhat, Rana said that Pt. Prem Nath Bhat was a legal luminary who faced the adversities of life and circumstances bravely and stood for the cause of secularism. He described Pt. Bhat as an humanitarian par excellence, a patriot and a secularist to the core, having wide circle of friends and admirers belongs to various walks of life and to different communities as well as having different political affiliations.
Rana also lauded the role of non professional and free lance journalists who serve as opinion builders on different issues, by writing freely without any constrain of the interest of employers. He also laid stress on the social responsibility of the media and advised the fraternity to avoid sensationalism while at the same time being objective, fair and fearless in their writings.
Earlier giving background of the award Shri Yash Bashin convener of the award giving function and senior trustee of the Pt. Prem Nath Memorial Trust stated that Prem Nath Memorial Amateur Journalists Award was instituted in 1990 jointly by Jammu Panorma, the magazine which he owned and edited and Prem Nath Memorial Trust to enliven the memory of Late Pt.
