Inam Aziz was one of Pakistan’s best known journalists who began his long career in the profession with an Urdu daily in Lahore soon after independence. He worked in Peshawar for another newspaper and ultimately moved to Karachi where he rose to become the news editor of Jang.
From print journalism, he went into broadcasting in the 1960s and worked for BBC’s Urdu service for several years.
During the dark days of General Ziaul Haq’s rule, Inam Aziz’s Urdu daily Millat was the lone voice of dissent at home and abroad. He lost both his money and health in that fight but he occupies a place of honor in the history of Pakistani journalism for his life-long opposition to military rule and his struggle for the establishment of representative government.
His book ‘Stop Press – A life in Journalism’ was translated into English by another renowned journalist Khalid Hasan.
Inam Aziz passed away in 1993.
