About Us

Peshawar Today is a bilingual (English and Urdu) language online media outlet committed to give voice to the region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and erstwhile Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA)- with delivering credible and authentic news that our readers trust. Peshawar Today combines real-time storytelling, data-driven investigative stories with special focus on issues concerning human rights, democracy, governance, rule of law and climate change.

Apart from that, Peshawar Today has attempted to provide a platform to bloggers, v-loggers and reporters to support and strengthen citizen voices and turn citizen journalism into a responsible and constructive journalism.

In addition, Peshawar Today is to challenge the culture of media houses which has co-opted by the country’s powerful political interest and give citizens a voice to critique and question the mainstream media outlets and their deliberate attempts to promote the narratives of the powerful.

Peshawar Today is project of Media Development Network, a non-profit organization based in Peshawar, to apply best practices of journalism and serve public at home and abroad with stories on issues that affect them. Overtime, we intend to become a citizen portal where the young Pakistanis (and those of Pakistani descent) find their voice and express themselves.
