A tribute to Shoebullah

షోయబ్_ఉల్లాఖాన్Firebrand journalist Shoebullah Khan, a graduate of OU was the first penman who laid down his lives for press freedom and rich tributes were paid to him on his birthday today. Born in October 1919 he and his paper Tej Akbar and Imroz braved against the despotic rule of
Nizam and his writings inspired movements as well to oppose the Razakars. Tej Akbar and Rayyat were banned later as Khan exposed the land lords and Razakars for their unlawful activities. Then he started
his own paper Imroz with the help of former cm Brugula Ramakrishna Rao and selling away his wife’s jewellery. His attack on the then rulers evoked threatening letters publicly from Khasim Rajvi but Khan did not relent as a result he was brutally murdered around mid-night while returning from his office. He breathed his last in the hospital and his last desire was merger of Hyderabad with Indian Union. Of course
he achieved it.
