They observed that all the three stations of Azad Kashmir Radio Mirpur, Muzaffarabad and Tararkheil aired special programs to highlight significance of the day.

Radio still remains the medium that reaches the widest audience worldwide, in the quickest possible time.

Speakers recalled that the AJK Radio Mirpur, Muzaffarabad Tararkheil always performed a significant role for their valued listeners during the era of emergency especially during the worst natural catastrophe of deadly earthquake of October 8, 2005 in Muzaffarabad and September 24, last year in Mirpur AJK.

They said that the AK Radio Mirpur station was highlighting the Kashmir issue since its inception in September 2002 proving an effective voice of the people of the AJK as its transmission covers the vast area across the LoC in Indian-occupied Jammu & Kashmir.

Meanwhile, AK Radio Mirpur observed World Radio Day by airing special programmes highlighting the role and importance of Radio in raising awareness about ameliorating life style of the masses.

It is to be noted that Unesco had announced to observe World Radio Day on February 13 every year.
