Majid Nizami: An Icon of Pakistani Journalism

Majid Nizami, one of the icons of the media industry today, passed away. Most of the young people in journalism today do not even know about him. To describe this legend, it is enough to say that journalism today is the refined and much better form of the tormented field, which was being groomed by people like Majid Nizami.

Majid Nizami was a worker-friendly person. During his editorship at Nawa-i-Waqt newspaper, he went through serious troubles from political influences. With one of the most serious allegations on the newspaper, Nizami defended the case referring to his article as “there is nothing wrong in it!”

Having worked and highlighted facts and figures, Nizami never promoted the idea of yellow journalism. Unfortunately, it is the most common idea in the field of media today. He was a brave editor in the times when journalists did not have too much liberty and rights. Often he had to face the music alone in the struggle with opposition to get all the journalists of Pakistan, their lawful rights.

He was always there with his team of reporters and technicians at every court hearing for the charges on his newspaper caused due to his articles. He used to give bold answers in both English and Urdu to the respectable judges and lawyers, who questioned him. His professional life is an example of how journalism is free of any political, social or religious influence. Journalists should learn from the vision he created.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
