Description - Stop Press by Inam Aziz

These are the memoirs of Inam Aziz, one of the stalwarts of journalism in Pakistan. A respected journalist, Inam Aziz rose to become the editor of the London edition of the Jang, Pakistan's most widely circulated national Urdu daily. During the dark days of Ziaul Haq in Pakistan, Inam Aziz's Millat was the only newspaper that fought his dictatorship with courage and conviction. He lost both his money and his health in that lonely fight but he occupies a place of honour in Pakistan's history because of his crusade against military rule and for the establishment of representative government in the country. It is ironic that one of the first acts of the Benazir Bhutto government in 1988 was to have Inam Aziz dismissed from his post as London correspondent of The Pakistan Times. This book provides a clear look into the growth of journalism in Pakistan, and the pressures and setbacks suffered by journalists in their endeavour to report the truth. This account of his life in journalism was originally written in Urdu.
