According to a press release, the decision was taken at a meeting of the KhUJ. The members of the Peshawar Press Club and KhUJ attended the meeting.

The meeting expressed deep concern over the hurdles in the way of freedom of the press in the country. They said that efforts were being made to stifle the press and prevent the journalists from performing their professional work.
