Photojournalist Mujeeb remembered
KARACHI: Speakers at a memorial reference for photojournalist Mujeebur Rehman paid tribute to his work and dedication to the profession and called for the establishment of a photography institute after his name to fittingly recognise his stature.
At a programme jointly organised by the Pakistan Association of Photojournalists and the Karachi Press Club on the latter’s premises, journalists, colleagues and admirers praised the late Mr Rehman for his services to the profession and fraternity which, they said, gravely missed since his demise last year.
“He was a brave photojournalist who worked to the fullest of his potential for 40 long years,” said Muhammad Ali Siddiqi, Dawn Readers Editor.
He said Mr Rehman remained associated with Dawn and its evening newspaper, Star, for four decades. He was a brave person who feigned death several times to catch snaps that earned him laurels and praise from his friends and foes alike.
