LAHORE - Former President of Pakistan and Nazaria-e-Pakistan Trust Chairman Rafique Tarar said late Dr Majid Nizami had devoted all of his life for the promotion of Pakistan ideology.

He was addressing in connection with the 89th birthday of late Nizami at the Pakistan Workers Trust on Monday. Both the Nazaria-e-Pakistan Trust and Pakistan Workers Trust had marked his birthday in a befitting manner.

Tarar called him a fearless and brave journalist. His efforts for the welfare of Pakistan Movement workers and the protection of Pakistan ideology would be written golden words, he added.

The NPT chairman said it is impossible to encompass the national and journalistic services of late Dr Majid Nizami. Being a true lover of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him), late Nizami never compromised with the honour of his pen and raised his true conscious fearlessly in front of every dictator. He was a combination of religious thoughts and Islamic ideology of Pakistan and confronted the enemies ruthlessly.

He said the Trust was following guiding principles of late Nizami in pursuance of its objectives and vowed to continue with the same spirit ahead.
