The Daily Times (DT) is an English-language Pakistani newspaper. Launched on April 9, 2002, Daily Times, which is simultaneously published from Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi, is edited by Rashed Rahman. The paper was owned by Governor of Punjab and Pakistan Peoples Party stalwart Salmaan Taseer.

The Daily Times is recognized as a newspaper that advocates liberal and secular ideas.[1] The DT has gained popularity as well as notoriety due to some of its editorials, considered controversial in some parts of Pakistan, but lauded in the international press. For example, DT was hotly criticized by some in the ethnic Pashtoon community at the end of 2006 for its editorial “Say ‘yes’ to ‘naswar’!”.

Editor Rashed Rahman joined the Daily Times in November 2009. He had previously worked as Executive Editor for English-language dailies The Post and The Nation.

  1. ^ PBS Newshour, Nov 23, 1999; Here, "liberal" refers to the use in political theory meaning freedom of thought and speech, not to a kind of bias, as in "liberal press" used to indicate bias by right-leaning American commentators. "Secular" is as in secular democracy, as opposed to a theocracy with its accompanying censorship.
