The media in Kashmir, comprising a robust English and vernacular press has a particularly unenviable job to do. The problems faced by it are both universal to the conflict situations and unique to the region.
The story of the Kashmir Observer for the twenty three years of its existence is one of resilience in the face of heavy odds, and success in surmounting the many challenges to journalistic integrity. In that span the paper has navigated a sea of political instability, logistical nightmares and misplaced perceptions. Steadfast in the face of these considerable pressures, Kashmir Observer has in return earned a loyal readership and a reputation for integrity.
Kashmir Observer, as its content will bear out, has, as far as possible, tried to strike a delicate balance in its content. Its news and editorial pages have sought to present a well-rounded picture of the complex situation.
Besides maintaining the set traditions the paper has been striving to develop as a forum for intellectual debate and discussion. Involve people in activities (by promoting them) that are essential for the development of normal and a civilized societies.
