On this occasion, Journalist Muhammad Amir Siddique said that journalists have played a major role in sustainable development including peace. Journalists of Pakistan have performed the duties of their profession despite the difficult conditions. Journalism has been playing its role for the reformation of society. He further said that I know that journalism is a responsible profession. A true journalist helps in developing the spirit of national unity and dignity by promoting high consciousness and values in society. Journalism is a sacred profession and describing various issues and events in their proper context is the real duty of a true journalist. Overseas Pakistani journalists have always played a key role in establishing and maintaining Pakistan’s existence around the world. Journalists continue to play their role. The main duty of a journalist is to create awareness in the society and increase social and social consciousness. In today’s era, the media is providing the foundation of society. Pakistan is a land of creative people. He further said. Every human being wants to be aware of his surroundings. He wants to know about the changes in the world and to assess his place, his importance, and his needs in the changing conditions and the changing world. And all this information and awareness he gets through the media. We get information or news about any important event happening in the world through the media. Journalism fulfills our curiosity. Journalism is the language of society. The journalist brings the problems of the society to the fore through his pen, and emphasizes their solutions. A journalist represents the common people with his voice. He conveys the voice of the common people to the authorities concerned. He effectively conveys the expectations and aspirations of the public. The journalist raises his voice against the vices of the society by risking his life. Journalism has been important in every era and its importance cannot be denied. I am dedicating this award to all those journalists who have fulfilled their responsibilities and made Pakistan famous in the world, especially those journalists who have achieved martyrdom while performing their duties.
