After the death of pre-eminent Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in a controversial manner journalists from the entire world are uniting under for cause.

Jamal Khashoggi who was of Saudi origin was brutally murdered in a Saudi consulate of Istanbul, Turkey.

A tough critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Khashoggi, 59, disappeared after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to collect a document for his upcoming marriage.

After more than two weeks of near silence, Saudi Arabia admitted on Saturday that Khashoggi was killed in an altercation at the consular office an explanation rejected by friends and foes alike.

Under the umbrella of Amnesty International, International Journalists from around the globe are taking action against state controlled information.

Many have shared their resolve in a video to get ‘real and authentic’ news to the Arab speaking world, ensuring different perspectives and takes on varying topics rather than something that the state would like to pedal as “truth”.

Pakistani Journalist Hamid Mir is also a part of the massive initiative.
