Zameer Niazi’s popular books include Press in Chains, Press Undersea and Web of Censorship. During the rule of General Zia-ul-Haq, his book ‘Press in Chains’ was banned. The book became very popular and included several editions and translations. During the PPP era, when some Syrian newspapers were banned, they protested and returned the Medal of Merit given by the government. Karachi University had also announced to give him an honorary doctorate degree, but Zameer Niazi had refused to go to the Governor House for it.

Zameer Niazi was born in 1932 in Mumbai, United India. His real name was Ibrahim Jan Muhammad Darwish. Zameer Niazi started his journalistic career with a Mumbai-based newspaper Inqilab. Later he migrated to Pakistan and settled in Karachi where he resumed his journalistic journey.
