History

Nawa-I-Waqt first came out on March 29, 1940


as a fortnightly periodical. It had a pro-
American and anti-communist stance. The
editors were Hameed Nizami, a student of
Islamia College, and Shabbar Hasan, a student
of King Edward Medical University. They were
influenced by a nationalist periodical Aligarh
Opinion, which was started by Syed Sibt-e-
Hasan, Khawaja Ahmed Abbas and Dr. Ashraf
who were close friends of Dr. Shabbar Hasan.
On December 15, 1942 the fortnightly was
turned to a weekly and finally to a daily on July
19, 1944. Hamid Nizami was interested in
literature from his student life and used to write
stories. Now the papers views itself as the
champion of the ideology of Pakistan.

Waqt News is a Pakistani news channel


owned by Nawa-i-Waqt media group

launched in early 2008 in Pakistan.
Nawa-i-Waqt[1] is considered to be one of
the most vocal media groups in
Pakistan. This group has a long history

popularity of other established
networks such as GEO News, ARY One
World, Dunya News, AAJ TV and
Dawn News, Waqt News has not been
able to gain much popularity among the
Pakistani populace.

in 2000. It is the newspaper of choice for not only those who make decisions, formulate

future.
