About Us

Launched in 1938 as a daily newspaper in the vanguard of the Indian freedom movement by Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, the National Herald proudly proclaimed its commitment on its masthead inscribed in Pt. Nehru’s hand: Freedom Is in Peril, Defend It with All Your Might. The newspaper shared the vision of its founder and the best values of the freedom movement – of building a modern, democratic, just, equitable, liberal and socially harmonious nation, free of sectarian strife. Even in the decades following Independence, the National Herald group of newspapers, including Navjivan in Hindi and Qaumi Awaz in Urdu, lent its influential voice to shape nation-building efforts and to promote a rational spirit and scientific temper under the guidance of its founder.

In keeping with the changing times, the newspaper group, published by The Associated Journals Ltd (AJL), resumed phased publication as a multi-media outlet with a strong digital presence. AJL is a company, motivated not by profit but the greater public good; it does not distribute any benefits or dividends to its members. It remains firmly committed to its institutional values.
