LAHORE Paying glowing tributes to Maulana Zafar Ali Khan, TheNation Editor-in-Chief and Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust Chairman Majid Nizami said the late Pakistan Movement leader was the great journalist of his time. He was a poet, a fiery orator but above of all he was a great journalist, said the NPT Chairman while addressing a sitting at Aiwan-e-Karkunan Tehrik-e-Pakistan on 59th death anniversary of Maulana Zafar Ali Khan. NPT Vice-chairman Professor Dr Rafique Ahmed, Zafar Ali Trust Chairman Khalid Mehmood, Senator Naeem Hussain Chattah, Waleed Iqbal Advocate, MPA Rana Arshad, Brigadier (rtd) Zafar Iqbal Ch, Dr MA Soofi, Dr Parveen Khan, Dr Ajmal Niazi, Professor Muzaffar Mirza, Dr Saeed Malk, Yasin Watoo, Shahid Rasheed, Rafaqat Riaz and people from different walk of life attended. NPT and Pakistan Movement Workers Trust jointly organised the event. Today, we are remembering the person who throughout his life fought against the evil forces with his pen and spent most part of his life in imprisonment, said Majid Nizami, adding Maulana Zafar Ali Khan never compromised on upholding the principles of truth and freedom of expression, even at the cost of closure of daily Zamindar. However, he held that the grandsons of Maulana should continue the Zamindar after the death of Maulana as the newspaper was the spokesman of the Muslims of the Sub-continent. The NPT Chairman told the participants that Zafar Ali Khan had participated in every Muslim movement during the British period. He also remembered his meetings with the great journalist. I also in my 50 years journalistic career opposed every dictator by remaining in the parameters of law, said the veteran journalist. Speaking about the current situation, Majid Nizami expressed his desire for the unification of the various factions of Muslim League as according to him a united Muslim League would be the only party which could turn Pakistan according to the vision of Allama Muhammad Iqbal and Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Today, a former cricketer wants to bring a change in Pakistan, he said and added: I pray Imran turns Pakistan into an Islamic welfare state. He was surprised that Asif Ali Zardari had asked America to leave Shamsi Airbase. But, he regretted, Rehman Malik was still not naming India and her agents for disrupting law and order in Karachi. NPT Vice-chairman Dr Rafique highlighted the activities of the Trust saying the focus of the Trusts activities was creating awareness among the youth.
