Kelab Wartawan Muda displeased by Tamil daily's picture


Kelab Wartawan Muda Malaysia, a non-governmental organisation (NGO), today voiced its displeasure over Tamil daily Makkal Ossai using a photograph of participants at the 2013 Putrajaya Youth Festival for a rally organised by the opposition in Petaling Jaya on Saturday.

Its president Dzulkarnain Taib said the newspaper should make a prominent open apology over the matter.

"If the publishing of the picture is deemed prejudicial, legal action can be taken against the newspaper.

"Media, be they print or electronic, must be ethical, not try to induce unwanted perceptions through the articles or pictures published," he told Bernama.

The newspaper had carried the picture in Page Two of its Monday edition.

Meanwhile, a source at Makkal Ossai when contacted by Bernama said the newspaper regretted the mistake and would be issuing an apology as soon as possible. -- BERNAMA
