LAHORE - Tayyaba Zia has achieved a fabulous place in journalism in a very short span of time. She is a veteran and seasoned columnist, and her various writings about Dr Aafia Siddiqui are praise worthy. Editor-in-Chief The Nation Majid Nizami expressed these views while addressing the launching ceremony of the books authored by Tayyaba Zia here at the Hameed Nizami Hall on Wednesday. Dr MA Soofi, Nawa-i-Waqt columnist Dr Ajmal Niazi and Begum Asmat Khalid were also present on the occasion. Majid Nizami said that Tayyaba was a valiant writer, who was criticising the US policies even while residing in America. He said that Nawa-i-Waqt had been producing renowned columnists since its inception. He said among the nexus of evils ie, the US, India and Israel, America was at the top. Nawa-i-Waqt is being taken as anti-America newspaper for the last few years, he observed and commented that the US personnel in Pakistan did not even invite him to any of their ceremonies or briefings. Nizami further said that India had not admitted Pakistan by heart so we should remain alert for invasion against it. Our nuclear power is stronger than India, he maintained. Dr Ajmal Niazi said that Tayyaba had strong association with Islam and always tried to express her feelings in her columns. He said that Ataul Haq Qasmi, Nazeer Naji, Abdul Qadir Hassan, Zia Shahid, Irfan Siddique, Haroon Rasheed and even Mujeebur Rehman Shami were made columnists by the Nawa-i-Waqt. Tayyaba Zia said that Majid Nizami urged her to write for Nawa-i-Waqt. Dr MA Soofi said that parents of Tayyaba were the true lovers and workers of Pakistan Movement. Eminent social worker Begum Asmat Khalid also addressed.
