JFA welcomes NCW move on lady scribe’s case

N.J. Thakuria, Guwahati: Journalists’ Forum Assam (JFA) welcomes the move of National Commission for Women (NCW) to issue a show-cause notice to a city-based satellite news channel for forcing a reporter to resign because she was pregnant. The forum also agrees with NCW that the channel management had shown an insensitive attitude towards the scribe, who worked there for over a decade.

Days back, expressing deep shock and concern ‘at the manner in which Guwahati based journalist Ranjita Rabha was forced to resign from her position in Prag News’, the Network of Women in Media, India (NWMI) called upon the NCW and the State Commission for Women to take suo moto cognizance of the issue.

Many other organizations namely Indian Journalist Union, North East Network, Asom Mahila Sangha, Sadou Asom Pragatisheel Naari Santha, Assam unit of Students’ Federation of India, State unit of All India Democratic Women’s Association, etc also criticized the channel management asserting that her case showed the violation of rights and entitlements of working women as envisaged in the Constitution.

Taking a serious note of the incident many senior journalists, who are not associated with local news channels, sought intervention Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal  ensuring  justice for the scribe.

JFA, along with them, believes that the incident would send a wrong signal against the recruitment of women in offices and it would finally jeopardize the campaign for women’s empowerment in India.
