I would like to state that the newspaper "Gana Adhikar" is fully owned by Unity Media and Infrastructure Ltd and has no direct or indirect affinity or link with Sri Ajmal or the political party All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF).
Letter to the Hoot from ZAKIR HUSSAIN
 
Dear Sir
 
My attention has been drawn to an article published in your portal www.thehoot.org under the caption "Politics and media control" wherein it is stated that "Badruddin Ajmal of the Assam United Democratic Front (AUDF), industrialist and social activist who is on the executive council of Darul Uloom Deoband, controls the daily, Ganaadhikar, through Unity Media and Infrastructure Ltd." which totally false and baseless. Further in a chart captioned 'MEDIA COMPANIES WITH POLITICAL LINKS' published in your portal also clearly stated that we have linkage with Sri Badaruddin Ajmal. 
 
I would like to state that the newspaper "Gana Adhikar" is fully owned by Unity Media and Infrastructure Ltd and has no direct or indirect affinity or link with Sri Ajmal or the  political party All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF). It has no political link to any other political party as well. It is an independent newspaper run by the company which is committed to be the voice and mouth piece of downtrodden and deprived section of our society. Ours is fastest growing Assamese daily newspaper of Assam .
 
The allegation made in the said article has malafide intention and is fabricated. I would like to request you to kindly publish this letter in your portal for clarification and information of all concerned.
 
Regards

Journalists in Kashmir are up in arms over the summons issued by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to Kashmir Observer journalist Aqib Javed Hakim, for his interview with jailed separatist leader Asiya Andrabi in January. This amounted to intimidation and harassment, a joint statement of the Kashmir Working Journalist Association (KWJA) and Kashmir Journalist Association said, adding that, in the Kamran Yousuf case, the NIA had tried to define journalism by its own skewed standards.
