Paisa Akhbar (Collection)

Primary tabs

The Paisa Akhbar (Penny Paper) was a popular Urdu newspaper published in Lahore, British India. Lahore is now located in Pakistan. The paper was established in 1887 by Maulana Muhammad Hussain Azad and Nisar Ali Shohrat. These dailies published news stories and editorials aimed at a general readership and supported nationalistic causes.

This collection includes dailies from 1891, 1892, 1894, and 1898 bound into four incomplete volumes. The print volumes are available in MU Libraries Special Collections.

The tight binding of these volumes resulted in some unreadable text, page curvature, and crooked pages.
