The Milli Gazette is an Indian fortnightly English-language compact newspaper based in Delhi. Founded in January 2000, the newspaper describes itself as the Indian Muslims' Leading English Newspaper.[1] In 2008, it started e-paper publication.[2]

The Guardian, a British daily while quoting Gazette editor, Zafarul Islam Khan, described the Milli Gazette as "a newspaper widely read among India's 140m Muslims"[3] and "an influential newspaper for Indian Muslims."'[4] The Diplomat and The Citizen described the publication as the first English language Muslim newspaper of India.[5][6]

With its 1–15 January 2010 edition, Milli Gazette completed its 10th year in publication.[7] In 2011, Indian Express reported that the Milli Gazette is frequently cited by media houses on stories related to Indian Muslims.[8]
