The Eastern Herald condemns Newsmast’s unjust suspension amid accusations of favoring Russia


In a blatant display of censorship, Newsmast, the self-proclaimed bastion of decentralized social media, has shamefully suspended The Eastern Herald’s social handle under the flimsy guise of accusations alleging favoritism towards Russia. This reprehensible action not only undermines the principles of free speech but also exposes Newsmast’s own hypocrisy and lack of commitment to true diversity of opinion.

It is with deep disappointment and righteous indignation that The Eastern Herald must address this egregious violation of our rights as a reputable news organization. Newsmast’s decision to silence our voice on their platform reeks of cowardice and serves as a chilling reminder of the dangers of unchecked power in the digital age.

The Eastern Herald’s Editor-in-Chief Muzaffar Ahmad Noori Bajwa said, “Let us be unequivocally clear that The Eastern Herald categorically rejects the baseless accusations leveled against us by Newsmast. We have never wavered from our commitment to impartial reporting, and any insinuation otherwise is a malicious fabrication intended to stifle dissent and suppress alternative viewpoints.”

He further asserted, “This egregious act constitutes an assault on the fundamental right to free speech, and we will vehemently denounce any and all attempts to suppress it.”

This unjust suspension, though not directly affecting The Eastern Herald, serves as a glaring indictment of the hypocrisy embedded within the Newsmast platform. By capitulating to external pressures and hastily acting upon baseless allegations, Newsmast has not only tarnished its own credibility but also shattered the very foundation upon which it claims to stand. The egregiousness of this act lays bare the stark disparity between Newsmast’s professed commitment to fostering open dialogue and its actual practice of stifling dissenting voices. In succumbing to the whims of unfounded accusations, Newsmast has not only failed its users but also betrayed the fundamental values of free expression and journalistic integrity. This regrettable episode serves as a cautionary tale, highlighting the dangers of unchecked power and the imperative need for platforms like Newsmast to uphold the principles of fairness, transparency, and impartiality.

As we confront this flagrant act of censorship, The Eastern Herald stands resolute in our commitment to truth, integrity, and journalistic excellence. We refuse to be silenced, and the incident further underscores the unreliable and biased nature of Newsmast’s actions, reminiscent of the tendencies often observed in certain segments of Western media. Such behavior only reaffirms the need for vigilance in safeguarding the principles of free speech and press freedom.

In the face of adversity, we remain steadfast in our mission to deliver unbiased and reliable news to our readers. We will not be intimidated, and we will continue to fight for the fundamental principles of freedom of expression and press freedom that are the bedrock of any democratic society. It is worth noting that Newsmast, the platform that has unjustly targeted us, is purportedly owned and managed by a UK-based ‘Newsmast Foundation.’ By scrutinizing such actions, we are compelled to question the reality and integrity of this so-called “Charity” and its commitment to the principles of free speech and impartiality.

The Eastern Herald extends our deepest gratitude to our loyal readers and supporters who stand with us in solidarity during this challenging time. Together, we will overcome this brazen assault on journalistic integrity and emerge stronger than ever before. As we navigate this troubling episode, it becomes increasingly evident that Newsmast’s actions raise serious doubts about the credibility and sincerity of its mission as an impartial platform for open discourse.
