Amid concerns from various quarters, parliament passed the much-talked-about Digital Security Bill in September

Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu has said the Digital Security Act was not formulated for the media, but for those who commit cyber crimes using digital instrument.

“The act was formulated to control cyber crimes, not for the media. So there is nothing to fear,” he said while inaugurating the 3rd national conference of Bangladesh Nari Sangbadik Kendro at the Press Institute of Bangladesh in Dhaka on Sunday.

Inu said children and women are the victims of cyber crime.

Amid concerns from various quarters, parliament passed the much-talked-about Digital Security Bill in September and the president assented to the bill earlier this month.

The minister said Bangladeah Nari Sangbadik, an association of female journalists, demanded that at least 30% women journalists should be appointed in all media outlets, but the progress has not been made yet.

He further said gender discrimination needs to be reduced from all sectors, especially in the media sector.

He said they will try to form a separate welfare trust and women will be given the preference. “There will be no discrimination.”

In the conference women leaders presented 13 demands including at least 30% of women journalists should be appointed in all media departments, arrangement of training for women journalists, equal opportunity to participate in the national and international training, promotion, forming a special committee in all media outlets to resolve any complaints and action if any discrimination occurs.
