    On Monday, AIMIM president and Lok Sabha MP Asaduddin Owaisi launched the 2023 Telangana Urdu Working Journalists’ Federation (TUWJF) diary. During the event, TUWJF president MA Masjid, general secretary Syed Ghouse Mohiuddin, federation advisors, vice presidents, and other representatives submitted a memorandum to the Hyderabad MP. The memorandum called for the restoration of the Mandal Level Accreditation Card Facility for Urdu journalists, the inclusion of an Urdu journalist in SMAC and DMAC, and the creation of a separate Urdu Journalist Category.

    Furthermore, the memorandum requested a relaxation of the 12-page rule for Urdu major and medium newspapers, reducing it to 8 pages for the sanction of 2 state-level accreditation cards in districts. Other demands included the allocation of housing sites to Urdu working journalists within Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) limits, the nomination of an Urdu member to the Telangana Media Academy, and the allotment of 2,000 square yards of land to construct an Urdu journalists bhavan in or around Hyderabad.

    In response to these demands, Owaisi promised to address the challenges faced by Urdu journalists, including the provision of double-bedroom housing initiatives. He also stated that he will bring the matters to the government’s attention to ensure their resolution. Owaisi emphasized that Urdu media is the largest after Telugu media in delivering government programs and schemes to the Urdu-speaking population. He added that “GO 239 creates a disparity between journalists based on language. Until June 2016, all governments had treated Urdu journalists equally with their Telugu counterparts in various schemes.”
