Civil & Military Gazette

A lot of quotes of Jinnah from the 1940s are sourced from the Lahore-based newspaper "Civil & Military Gazette". I had idly wondered what had become of the newspaper, and by chance, I found out today.

Ban on the newspaper
May 13 {1949}. Lahore-based Civil & Military Gazzette is banned on instigation of other leading journalists, including Faiz Ahmed Faiz (!), progressive editor of Pakistan Times. In an unprecedented move, six leading dailies publish the same editorial urging the government to act against CMG.
