Lahore, July 26 (Pak Destiny) Police have been deployed at the Nawa-e-Waqt media group offices in Lahore reportedly in order to foil any attempt of Arif Nazami to take over them in the wake of Majeed Nazami’s death.
Official sources told Pak Destiny that on the request of Rameeza Nazami, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has ordered deployment of police at the Nawa-e-Waqt, The Nation and Waqt TV offices to anticipate any move by Arif Nazami, the editor of Pakistan Today, to take over the organization of his father, Hameed Nazami.
The sources said still there are many ‘well-wishers’ of Arif Nazami in the Naw-e-Waqt group who want him to lead the group and not Rameeza, the adopted daughter of Majeed Nazami.
Majeed Nazami had separated Arif from the editorship of The Nation after developing differences. Subsequently, both uncle and nephew divided the assets. And Arif took out ‘Pakistan Today’ which could not find success in the competitive market.
“As Majeed Nazami no more, Rameeza and company fear that Arif will make an attempt to recapture the Nawa-e-Waqt media group,” the sources said. -Pak Destiny
