ISLAMABAD: Sulaiman A. Meenai, an ex-Dawn staffer and senior journalist, passed away Sunday after a brief illness in Karachi. He was 85.
A story published in Dawn says he joined the newspaper in the 1950s and went on to serve the newspaper for almost 40 years.
Meenai was renowned for his powerful and in-depth editorials on sports including squash, hockey and cricket. He also wrote editorials on politics, religion, literature and geopolitics.
“A voracious reader, he had command over language, with a style that was often termed quaint. Literature was in his blood, since Ameer Meenai, the great Urdu poet, was his grandfather,” the story said.
He is survived by his widow, a son and a daughter.
