New media watchdog group formed in Kabul


A new media watchdog held an inaugural ceremony in Kabul on Thursday, pledging to protect freedom of expression and the Afghan media community.

Journalists and media outlets who participated in the inauguration ceremony of the organization expressed concerns that many organizations misuse the title of journalist for their own interests.

The organization is named Nehad Rasana-e-Afghanistan. “Some of the organizations vowed to work for journalists but we saw that they didn’t bring any positive results,” said Nazifa, an Afghan journalist.
