Journalism is a kind of activity or a mechanism to gather information of events, organizing them, transmitting them to the readers in a comprehensive manner and equipping them with relevant comments or analyzes.

Journalism started from Germany in 1606. 13 years later, English journalism began with Weekly News London in 1622, while Urdu journalism came two hundred years later in 1827, when Sada Sikh Mirza Puri, the secretary of the Persian weekly “Jam Jahan Nama” from Calcutta, translated it into Urdu.

Leading journalists like Maulana Muhammad Hussain Azad, Maulana Zafar Ali Khan, Muhammad Ali Johar and Abu Kalam Azad were contributing a lot to journalism.

Keeping in view the demands and development in the 21th century where technology has change the every sphere of the world, including the media, It is more imperative and vital now to analysis the recent trends of journalism and to clarify its usefulness.

Public journalism in various types of journalism related to people’s problems Yellow journalism consists of content that satisfies cheap tastes, thrills and excitement, while standard journalism consists of literary, scholarly, brainstorming comments and analyzes.

Printed in print with reference to media and transmission Dia-related and electronic journalism is based on radio, TV, etc.

It is very important to formulate a code of ethics for journalism. News and information should always be passed on to the public after confirmation of the matter. The identity of the basic information should not be distorted.

The main responsibility of the journalist is not to mislead the readers. The famous columnist Asadullah Ghalib, while admitting the mistake and tearing down the veil of yellow journalism, says something like this: With no training, no awareness, no background, no mic, no pen, he becomes a journalist khan or a media khan.

Yes, journalists get information under this right but they have a double responsibility in this regard Justice Qazi Faiz Issa, while addressing the journalists, stressed on the importance of researching and verifying the news and advised them to refrain from publishing one-sided news.

That when he has deep insight, insightful insight, knowledge creation and full understanding of rights and duties. As for the problems faced by the journalists, they have to suffer the consequences of fearless journalism all over the world. Only three accused in 100 murder cases have been convicted.

Due to lack of strict legal accountability, the community suffers from uncertainty and mental stress. Months of pay cuts or unemployment increase frustration and lead to suicide and the families of the slain become victims of permanent poverty.

It is time for the government to provide protection to journalists. Groups have asked employers to insure all temporary and permanent employees. It is now their responsibility to protect themselves financially.
