Some interesting tidbits from an 1854 newspaper.
Although English and Urdu are the official languages of Pakistan, the Pakistani media do not release all of their reports in either English or Urdu. Some of the Pakistani media cater to their Arabic speaking listeners/readers. Some cater to the French speaking residents of Pakistan. Some cater to those in Pakistan for whom Russian has always been their mother tongue.
The media in Pakistan has not ignored the native Pakistani people who do not speak and read Urdu. There are some media outlets in Pakistan that release their reports in Pushto. There are others that release their reports in Sindhi or Uzbek.
The Pakistan newspapers do not differ only as to the language of their target audience. The focus for each of the newspapers in Pakistan falls into one of three categories. Some newspapers publish general interest information. Some publish business news. A third group of newspapers focuses on religious news.
One can find both daily and weekly papers among the Pakistan newspapers. Some of the papers that come out only once a week have managed to gather a large number of readers. Readers study carefully the content of any paper. Readers also look for reports that reveal the opinion of a paper’s editor.
Readers have found both informative content and forthright opinions in the Friday News. That paper has its main office in Lahore. The reporters who submit stories to Friday News do not hesitate to deliver critical reporting on any national issue.
Among Pakistan newspapers, the best-studied papers are not always those from the nation’s capital. The Frontier Post, which has it main office in Lahore, has many readers. Those readers want to learn the latest information from the area of Pakistan that borders on Afghanistan.
The newspaper editors, editors who have long had to respect the wishes of the Pakistani authorities, have been quick to realize the potential of the Internet. There are a number of online newspapers within Pakistan. One of the largest is the Online International News Network. It does not shrink from covering stories that have received scant coverage in the national papers.
The readers of the Pakistan newspapers definitely have an open mind. One newspaper now in Pakistan is the Pakistan Christian Post, Pakistan’s first Christian paper. Pakistanis who go online for information can read very challenging statements coming from Balochistan. The information posted on Balochunity.org includes a call for the self determination of those living in Balochistan.
In 2007 the Pakistan newspapers provided their readers with a useful insight into way that Pakistan has played a key role in world events. Prior to December of 2007, the Pakistan newspapers covered the “constructive role” taken by China at the India-Pakistan negotiations. The papers also offered detailed accounts about the visit to Pakistan made by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao.
After December, the Pakistan newspapers should give the world a clearer view of how the country has responded to the recent lifting of the emergency rule of law. They should also offer a continuing stream of information on any significant confrontations along the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
