LCWU workshop on media ethics

Lahore: Media ethics are part of national ethics and a relative term, according to speakers at a seminar on ‘Media Ethics and Pakistan’ by the Lahore College for Women University (LCWU), Lahore, held at the college campus on 8 January.

Journalist Irshad Ahmed Haqani, Mujeebur Rehman Shami, Qudrataullah Chaudhry, Dr Maskeen Ali Hijazi, IH Rashid, Shafqat Jalil, Dr Mugheesuddin Sheikh, Yameen Chaudhry, Muhammad Ikram, Dr Ahsan Akhtar Naz, Munzar Elahi, Ahmad Waleed and others spoke on the occasion. Anjum Zia, the Mass Communication Department chairperson, conducted the meeting and Dr Bushra Mateen, the LCWU vice chancellor, was the special guest. Haqani, concluding the seminar, said the media could not implement ethics in isolation. 

"Ethics is a relative term related to national ethics and ethics in fields like politics and education," he said, adding that people had different definitions of ethics and values and there was also difference of thoughts and ethics in social set up. Though some basic values were a must but mostly it was a relative term, he said, calling Pakistani media responsible and follower of the code of ethics and self-accountability. 

Other speakers said there were many codes of conduct by journalists’ unions and newspapers organisations but a final code of conduct was yet to be implemented by the Press Council. They also called for a monitoring system for the electronic media. They said a code of conduct should be disseminated and people should be educated about it. They said a code of conduct should be given to every journalist on the first day of his or her job. They said commercialism was another reason of not following a code of conduct in the interest of readers. They urged civil society to help implement a code of ethics and conduct by the media. Some of the participants objected on some pictures being published by some newspapers.
