Dawn in Islamabad

Dawn’s Islamabad edition was launched as the former chief editor of the newspaper, Ahmad Ali Khan, pressed the button around 10:30pm to switch on the presses.

Khan Sahib flew in Islamabad in the afternoon with his wife, well known Urdu short story writer Hajira Mansoor, specially to launch the newspaper which is already being published from two stations Karachi and Lahore.

It was a simple and soft launch without any fanfare and was attended by the local staff, besides the Editor, Saleem Asmi, the Resident Editor, M.Ziauddin, and the top management.
