Kuldip Nayar: Fearless defender of civil rights

Popular Front chairman E Abubacker stated that with the demise of veteran journalist and columnist Kuldip Nayar India has lost a fearless defender of civil rights and a strong advocate of peace among nations. For Mr. Nayar, media was a means of fighting against state terrorism and tyranny of governments. Following his tradition of standing up against emergency imposed by Mrs.Gandhi, he was equally worried about the recent state of undeclared emergency under present BJP rule. Born in Sialkot which is now in Pakistan, he was forced to migrate to India. But his bitter experiences with Partition made him an ambassador of not only Hindu-Muslim Unity, but also Indo-Pak friendship.
Mr. E Abubacker conveyed deep condolences to his bereaved family.
