National Journalist’s Day in Iran is observed on August 8 to pay tribute to the memory of the Iranian journalist Mahmoud Saremi who was assassinated by the Taliban in 1998 during an attack on Iranian consulate in Afghanistan's Mazar-i-Sharif.

Iran (IMNA) - Since then, August 8th is observed as National Journalist Day to honor all Iranian journalists and appreciate the wonderful work they are doing.

Journalists' pen is the most powerful sword in the world; writing and sharing us their stories, journalists speak out loud and stand up against global issues

The life of a journalist is lousy with challenges and risks because unbiased news does not come easy.

Many journalists put their lives on the line to save the world by uncovering hard truths. The world should honor all the brave and strong journalists who risk their lives to create an informed and insightful community.

They are one of the few walks of life who burn the candle at both ends because the whole world need their news to keep abreast of the latest events.

Without journalists carrying their duty, the world will be in an absolute chaos as there will be no one providing the truth.

Indeed, our lives head to end the day journalists become silent about the things that matter.

Journalists don’t stay silent as they are the voice of societies having the power of making big changes.

On the occasion of National Journalist Day, let us extend our cordial greetings to all journalists who who always seek truth.

Warm wishes to IMNA's press team.
