New Delhi: Al Jazeera Media Network (AJMN) has condemned the online harassment and deaths threats endured by US-based Kashmiri journalist Raqib Hameed Naik.
In a statement, Al Jazeera maintained that Naik has received death treats in response to his story on Covid-19 relief funding to Hindu organisations based out of United States.
One of the groups – the Hindu American Foundation (HAF) – has filed a lawsuit in a Washington, DC, court over the report. Naik has not been named as a direct defendant, but was added as a non-party.
”AJMN stands by Naik’s impeccable journalism and supports his professional contribution,” read the statement.
Naik has already reported death threats to US law enforcement agencies but he continues to face online harassment from individuals and groups for merely doing his work, it added.
