LAHORE - Terming Editor-in-Chief of Nawa-I-Waqt and TheNation Majid Nizami as custodian of the ideology of Pakistan and the thinking of Qauid-i-Azam and Allama Iqbal, the ace nuclear scientist of the country Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan on Sunday paid glowing tributes to him for his unflinching and steadfast commitment with the ideological frontiers of the state.

He greeted Majid Nizami for completing his golden jubilee as serving editor of one of the leading newspapers group, which is rightly considered as the custodian of the ideology of Pakistan and Islam. He further said that Majid Nizami had never accepted pressure from any dictator nor could he be blackmailed or tempted into any sort of monetary or other favour for him or his group of newspapers and always stood by principles and uprightness.

He recalled that Nawa-I-Waqt has the singular honour of breaking the news of country’s achievement of Uranium enrichment in 1984 while his role in the nuclear tests by Pakistan would also be remembered and regarded, when Majid Nizami had forcefully cautioned the then Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif who was wavering on the matter that if he would not go for nuclear tests then the nation would blow him up.

He further said that Nawa-I-Waqt had suffered enormously for standing by truth in shape of closure of government advertisement in past but the newspaper had never compromised on principals and always stood  by its motto “to speak truth before the tyrant ruler.”
