Headquartered in Lahore, the newspaper was founded by its editor and publisher, senior journalist Arif Nizami, in 2010. It is a part of Lahore-based Nawa Media Corporation, the media entity formed by him in 2008. Arif Nizami is the son of veteran Pakistani journalist Hameed Nizami (3 October 1915 – 22 February 1962) and had been associated with daily newspapers Nawa-i-Waqt and The Nation (Pakistani newspaper) before this for many years.[1]

Pakistan Today is the first Pakistani newspaper to be published in the Berliner format.

The newspaper upholds a liberal and moderate editorial policy through its editorials and contents.[citation needed]

Khabaristan Today[edit]

  • The newspaper has a satirical column called Khabiristan Today. Since its material is often unfamiliar, its satire is sometimes lost on Western audiences. This was the case in 2014 when an article claiming the Pakistani Council of Islamic Ideology issued a proclamation stating all women are intrinsically un-Islamic was picked up by both internet and mainstream news sources.[4]
