The News reporter receives award
The News reporter Jan Khaskheli received an award in recognition of his story for the protection of mangrove forests along the city coastline.
On the occasion of the screening of a documentary ‘Murder of Mystic’ made by young moviemaker Khalid Hassan, the Pakistan Fisherfolk Forum (PFF), recognising stories in the print media and documentaries by TV channels, awarded shields to journalists.
Those who received awards include Shazia Hassan and Bhagwandas of Dawn, Amar Guriro of Pakistan Today, Mumtaz Shar of KTN TV and Gulshan Shaikh of Sindh TV. Secretary Environment Mir Hussain Ali gave away the Annual Mangrove Awards. The aim is to further embolden writers, poets, artists and environmental activists to pursue their eco-endeavours.
Abu Wada, folksinger from the fishing community, also received an award as a token of encouragement and motivation.
The documentary focused on the struggle launched by fishermen to protect mangroves and the sacrifice by two PFF leaders Abdul Ghani and Haji Abu Bakar, who fought against the criminal activities of the land mafia along a 129-kilometre extended strip of the Karachi coast.
The ceremony attracted the KPT, EPA and other organisations working on environmental protection.
