LAHORE - Nazaria Pakistan Trust Vice-Chairman Prof Dr Rafique Ahmad said that it was the former The Nation Editor-in-Chief Dr Majid Nizami who had the courage to speak against mighty rulers.
The NPT vice-chairman expressed these views at Hamdrad Centre while addressing a condolence reference in memory of Majid Nizami. He loved the Pakistan Movement workers and had a great respect for them as he himself remained an active worker of the movement, Rafique added.

Besides running one of the biggest media groups, Dr Majid Nizami had also established many other forums like Nazaria Pakistan Trust, Aiwan-i-Karkunan-i-Tehreek-i-Pakistan, Hameed Nizami Press Institute of Pakistan and many others.
