Nawa-i-Waqt is the only newspaper in Pa­kistan that is known as the guardian of Pa­kistan's ideological boundaries. Nawa-i-Waqt has always been at the forefront of bring­ing the plight of Kash­miris to the attention of the world, by highlight­ing their freedom strug­gle. The Nawaiwaqt Group has proven a strong voice over de­cades against suppres­sion of the Kashmiris right of self-determina­tion in IIOJK. 

It has opposed the hostile actions of the Indian government and draconian laws im­posed in the valley and continues to do so even today. Founder of Nawa-i-Waqt late Majid Nizami promoted national unity and integrity while always con­sidering Kashmir as the jugular vein of Pakistan.
