He suffered hardships and was put behind the bars due to some clashes with the government during the time. The newspaper was then handed over to Mujeeb ur Rehman Shami. Prior to taking over Daily Pakistan, he was Editor-in-Chief of the Weekly Zindagi, Lahore. Mujeeb also served as President, Council of Pakistan Newspaper Editors (CPNE) in 2002.[4]
