The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has identified as many as 221 journalists in jail around the world in 2014. In 2013 the number was 211. The tally marks the second-highest number of journalists in jail since CPJ began taking an annual census of imprisoned journalists in 1990.
I wonder why freedom of expression is taken away by those countries which have thrown valiant journalists into prisons. I condemn all these attempts at muffling free press.
Jail those scribes who are dishonest, tell lies and resort to falsehood, but not those who are apostles of honesty and rectitude and who always stand by truth, come what may.
Let truth prevail.
