Harassing a journalist

On behalf of the class of 2009, MSc Mass Communications, NUML (Islamabad), I would like to pay regards to our investigative journalism course instructor, Azaz Syed, who, along with his family, was harassed by the members of an intelligence agency on January 19.

Mr Syed is, without any doubt, one of the best teachers we have ever had.

He would often tell us in his lectures how dangerous investigative reporting is. But we never thought that he would himself be subjected to victimisation one day. We are very proud of you, Mr Syed, for your fierce journalism, and are indeed honoured to have been taught by you. God bless you.
