  • About
  • Jugnu Mohsin (born Syeda Memnat Hussain in 1958) is a Pakistani progressive commentator who is the co-founder and editor of The Friday Times and from 2016, hosts a weekly talkshow Jugnu on Geo News.[1] Born into a wealthy Punjabi family, Mohsin studied law at University of Cambridge, where she met and married journalist Najam Sethi.[2]

    In 1999, her husband, Friday Times editor-in-chief Najam Sethi, was arrested by the Nawaz Sharif government for his work as a journalist and held for a month without charge, causing Mohsin to launch an international campaign for his release. That year, she and Sethi were awarded the International Press Freedom Award of the Committee to Protect Journalists.
