ISLAMABAD, (APP): Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Sunday stressed the need to curb fake news tendencies by promulgating stringent legislation against such news.

In a tweet, he said the association of negative media with fake news was very dangerous for the country, adding that the new legislation was imperative to curb the collaboration between fake news and negative media.

He lamented that the mainstream print and electronic media had not bothered to report up to Rs 43 per kg recent reduction in sugar price across the country as the result of the government’s action.

Indeed country’s media used to highlight only conspiracies and news that fuel instability in the country. The Information Minister said the courts should also vacate stay orders given to the sugar mills.
