Osama Talha Society announces field based certificate courses in journalism.


Lucknow. Osama Talha Society (OTS) is starting certificate courses in development journalism from October 2014. The announcement for this was made recently by senior journalist and founder secretary general of OTS, Kulsum Mustafa, on the eve of the birth anniversary of veteran journalist late Osama Talha.

OTS was set up by the friends and family of Osama after his untimely death in 1995. Known for his investigative and political journalism, Osama Talha worked fearlessly for fair and balanced journalism all his life and died with his boots on. His last job was with the Asian Age. He fell ill while covering the rally of Mulayam Singh Yadav and passed away the same night at PGI.

These one month, field based, development certificate courses will be conducted by specialists in the field and senior journalists.

“There is urgent need for sensitised writing on issues of social concerns. These course will help sharpen focus and perspective of journalists and communication specialists on issues of health, state of children, women empowerment, environment, minorities issues and education”, said Kulsum Mustafa, former media consultant to UNICEF.
