Urging Bangladeshi Community to Stand Up Against Yellow Journalism sign now

TAND UP AGAINST KHABOR'S YELLOW JOURNALISM

The 71-er Golpo team is calling on all conscious members of our community to sign this petition and denounce yellow journalism as demonstrated in the Khabor website.

In the main Khabor article on December 2, 2007, the Editor, Shibbir Ahmed has abused his position as a journalist to launch a smear campaign to undermine 71-er Golpo. The article, which contained comments by Harun Chowdhury, made unsubstantiated and baseless claims that the 71-er Golpo organizers are affiliated with anti-liberation forces (rajakars). The organizers challenged these individuals to corroborate their claims or retract the article and issue an apology in Khabor (Read statement issued by 71-er Golpo at http://71ergolpo.com/statement.html). Their failure to follow-up has compelled us to broadcast our grievance to the broader community.

This is NOT the first time Khabor has demonstrated poor and substandard journalism standards. We urge members of our community to speak out against unethical, malicious and sensationalistic journalism and boycott Shibbir Ahmed from reporting on future events.
