About TFT

The Friday Times is Pakistan’s first independent weekly, founded in 1989. In 2021, the publication went into collaboration with digital news platform Naya Daur Media to publish under a daily cycle.

At Friday Times, we cover stories that mainstream media shies away from covering. With its growing network of writers including senior journalists, politicians and former diplomats, TFT offers a diverse range of perspectives on national and international issues. We believe in the power of investigative journalism and apart from regular op-eds and features, we publish long-form pieces in the Spotlight section.
