The Telangana Urdu Working Journalists Federation (TUWJF) is playing a vital role in preserving and advancing Urdu journalism in India. Despite facing challenges such as government indifference and a decline in public support, Urdu journalism remains resilient, fighting for its survival.
The 2016-founded Federation strives to strengthen the stature of Urdu journalism, shine light on its challenges, and develop workable solutions to these problems. It acts as a unifying force for supporters of Urdu journalism who persevere under trying situations. The Federation has run a number of initiatives and training sessions over the past six years to give Urdu journalists a platform and give them the tools they need to succeed in the rapidly changing field of media. Through these programs, respected decision-makers have imparted their knowledge and experience.
Numerous organizations, institutions, and individuals are actively involved in the preservation and promotion of Urdu language and journalism. The Federation acknowledges and respects its contributions to this cause.
