विश्व प्रेस आजादी दिवस -3 May, World Press Freedom Day

1991 में अफ्रीका के पत्रकारों ने प्रेस की आजादी के लिए पहली बार मुहिम छेड़ी थी। अब हर वर्ष 3 मई को प्रेस फ्रीडम डे मनाया जाता है। इसे मनाने के पीछे मंतव्य यह है कि लोकतंत्र के चौथे स्तंभ – मीडिया को मज़बूत बनाया जाये। 180 देशों में, भारत इस इंडेक्स में 142 वें नंबर पर है।

It’s one of the most dangerous countries for journalists trying to do their job properly: RSF

The 2021 World Press Freedom Index produced by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), a French NGO, has again placed India at 142nd rank out of 180 countries. This despite the fact that for a year, under directions from the Cabinet Secretary, an Index Monitoring Cell worked to improve the world rankings, including a meeting between Ambassador to France with the RSF officials to lobby for a change in the ranking in the index compiled by them. https://www.thehindu.com/news/national/india-again-placed-at-142nd-rank-in-press-freedom/article34377079.ece/amp/
