About

Online Journalism in Pakistan finds little recognition. When it comes to Balochistan where internet access is limited, it is all the more challenging. In fact, the world has recognised transition from paper to online publication and has tuned to paper-free journalism long ago. Given the inevitability of this transition,  this is an attempt to step in future.

Moreover, launching a website without any financial support is not an easy task. We found most of the English Newspapers in Balochistan earning in millions through Government advertisements but reluctant to share dividends with their staff, keeping them pathetically underpaid. Moreover, We also observed very little urge for quality reporting among media industrialists.

In this context, we are of the view that they have left a large void unfilled in this province which needs to be filled through quality work. With this end in view, We launched The Bolan Tribune to contribute our part.

To readers, we believe in diversity of opinion, thought and free speech. However, any material that may go in contravention with the state’s integrity shall not find place with us.
