Government indifference to threats against journalists
ਭਾਰਤ ਦੇ ਗਵਾਂਢੀ ਮੁਲਕਾਂ ਦੇ ਹਾਲਾਤ
Targeted on all sides
BANGLADESH RANK 144Don’t criticize the constitution or Islam
NEPAL RANK 105 Dangerous to cover protests
CHINA RANK 176 Great Firewall and systematic imprisonment
SRI LANKA RANK 141
By electing Maithripala Sirisena as president, Sri Lanka freed itself of the reign of terror imposed by the Rajapaksa family and its allies. The new government said journalists and cyber-dissidents would no longer have to fear reprisals for their political views or for articles on such sensitive subjects as corruption and the military.
The Tamil media – long a target of the authorities, including after the official end of the civil war in 2009 – have seen a decline in harassment and hope it will last.
AFGHANISTAN RANK 120Struggling to protects journalistsAfghanistan’s constitution and legislation provide the media and freedom of information with relatively good legal protection. But, despite having won these rights, the media and journalists are particularly exposed to the chronic instability and unrest that affects all of Afghan society. By sowing terror, the Taliban and Islamic State have created information “black holes” in several regions since 2015. Afghanistan struggles to protect its journalists in this increasingly violent civil war.
BURMA RANK 143Closely monitored freedom but slightly less censorship
The Burmese government seems to have opted for (closely) monitored freedom instead of the drastic censorship that was in effect until recently. So media that cover political subjects have a bit more freedom. The Burmese-language state media nonetheless continue to censor themselves and avoid any criticism of the government or the armed forces. Tension between Muslims and Buddhists continues to be a highly sensitive subject.
