Founded in July 1989, Newsline was born of the refusal of a dedicated band of journalists to toe the line. And that is the commitment Newsline still makes to its readers today: to present the truth of Pakistan.

With a line-up that includes the country’s finest journalists and contributors, among them I. A Rehman,  Rahimullah Yusufzai, Ayesha Siddiqa, Amir Zia, Kunwar Khuldune Shahid and Mahir Ali.

But there’s more to Newsline than just news: together, the magazine and website offer you a fresh and complete look at the world of art and culture, fashion and sports, while bringing you up to date on business and the economy, education, health, development and the environment. The news and events, people and places, trends and lifestyles behind all the stories that affect you come to life at Newsline.

Nothing is too big – or too small – for Newsline. All the news that’s fit to print – and perhaps some that others might not want to print – can be found here. Over the years, Newsline has been rewarded for this belief in independent, accurate reporting with a slew of loyal readers and a series of national and international awards, including numerous APNS awards for “Best Feature” and “Best Investigative Report.”

Come discover your world in a new light.
