ISLAMABAD—Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) has termed I. A. Rehman's death as a tremendous loss for the country and human rights defenders.
President Shahzada Zulfiqar and Secretary-General Nasir Zaidi said that Mr. Rehman was an institution whose ideas enlightened generations of activists and journalists.
The two union leaders paid glowing tributes to Mr. Rehman, saying the vacuum his demise has created could not be filled quickly.
"Mr. Rehman spent his life fighting for the restoration of democracy. He upheld the constitution's sanctity, raised voice for the voiceless, helped the helpless, and accounted for the unaccountable through his writing and practical struggle."
He paid a heavy price for his ideology but never compromised on principles while dealing with the dictators.
"Mr. Rehman stood up at a time when other so-called intellectuals were bowing in front of these dictators."
The PFUJ leaders observed that his unwavering support for smaller nations, oppressed masses, and marginalized groups would be written in golden words.
Zulfiqar and Zaidi expressed condolences with Mr. Rehman's family and prayed for the departed soul.
