KARACHI: The All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS) Secretary General, Sarmad Ali, has expressed his profound grief on behalf of office-bearers of the society over the sad demise of veteran politician, former governor of West Pakistan and ex-president APNS Yusuf Haroon after a protracted illness.
Yusuf Haroon was the eldest son of Sir Abdullah Haroon and had closely worked with Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah for freedom and creation of Pakistan. During his political career, Yusuf Haroon played an active role in the struggle for achievement and consolidation of the new state of Pakistan. He held various positions in the Muslim League as a leader of the National Guard, leader of Provincial Assembly Party, President of Sindh Muslim League and Vice President of Pakistan Muslim League.
He assumed the charge of Chief Editor, Daily Dawn, in the year 1967 and was elected president of the APNS for the term 1966-67. He tried to give Dawn an independent posture which annoyed General Ayub Khan and he was expelled from Pakistan on a 24 hour notice.
The APNS office-bearers observed that the services of Yusuf Haroon for the creation of the country and newspaper industry will be remembered for long. They prayed that Almighty Allah may rest the departed soul in peace and give courage to the bereaved family to bear the irreparable loss.
