Munir Niazi Never Pursued Riches: Mowahid

Washington, DC: Munir Niazi was a towering personality who dealt with big ideas, but had a simple life style. His loss is irreplaceable. This was stated by Mowahid Hussain Shah, Special Assistant to Chief Minister, Punjab, while expressing his condolences in Washington on the demise of the distinguished poet.
Mowahid added that Munir Niazi was a highly sensitive individual, whose poetry flowered under the pressure of pain and, hence, it was particularly creative. In the consumer-driven and materially obsessed society of today, Munir Niazi stands tall as a man who did not succumb to temptations and remained true to his conscience, said Mowahid. “In his death, Pakistan has lost a literary giant, while I have personally lost a great friend,” concluded Mowahid.
