Book on rights, journalism launched


Supreme Court justice Anup Raj Sharma on Tuesday launched a book titled Manav Adhikar Patrakarita: Siddhantha Ra Byabahar. The book is authored by Bhanubhakta Acharya. Sharma said the book highlights the correlation between journalism and human rights. Acharya said an incident at Jagatpur in Saptari inspired him to write the book. According to him, the media had reported that 25 women were raped and one innocent local was killed in that connection. “Can journalists restore our dignity,” Acharya quoted a Jagatpur woman as asking him one day.
