ISLAMABAD—Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) has condoled the death of veteran journalist and editor M. Ziauddin and announced a three-day mourning.
The union said it had suspended all activities for three days and that its offices would hoist black flags to mourn the death.
In a statement, President PFUJ Shahzada Zulfiqar and Secretary-General Nasir Zaidi said Ziauddin's death was a great loss to the journalist fraternity and all those who work for the rule of law, the supremacy of parliament, and upholding fundamental rights of all Pakistanis.
The two leaders paid tributes to the veteran journalist, saying that the void created after his death would not be filled for decades. "He was not only a professional journalist but a great intellectual as well who dedicated his life training journalists and working for the strengthening of democratic forces."
They said that Ziauddin was never afraid of powers that be. He not only openly questioned the dictatorial policies of Gen. Pervez Musharraf but also came hard on ill-conceived policies of democratic governments.
The two leaders said Ziauddin's services to journalism would never be forgotten."
He contributed to many publications enlightening his readers on economy, politics, society and other complex issues.
They hoped that the legacy of the veteran journalist would live on, and his writings would serve as a beacon of light for the coming generations of media persons.
