    Dear Sir,
    First of all I congratulate you on publishing such a global standard newspaper published from a country who’s struggling hard to regain Jinnah’s secular Pakistan from taliban al-qaeda and religo-political forces. In this intolerance society, newspaper like EXPRESS TRIBUNE is fresh breath of air. No doubt, it is the good addition in Pakistani press to give in-depth news analysis on national and international affairs. I do hope it will really to make a change in Pakistan image religious fanatics’ to a moderate and liberal Pakistan.
    I once again to express my heartiest congratulation to Express Team for bring out an international syndicate newspaper in Pakistan.
    Finally, I would like to suggest you to publish a weekly Book Review edition like Times Literary Supplement, New York Review of Books and London Review of Books to distribute with paper every week because a complete Review of Books in Pakistan is still a dream for book reading community.
    May Allah succeed in your goals and keep up the good work.

    The electronic media in Pakistan has disappointed us to a great extent. Hope the Tribune will not do so and continue its free enterprise of journalism. Advertisemnet cherished the less, the better.

    Most of our media is urban centric forgetting the fact that 70 % of the population lies in villages. The business and industrailis gurus living in the cities have a contribution in making our media particularly the electronic centric to their interests.Recommend

    This is very nice initiative by ‘THE DAILY EXPRESS’ to introduce English paper in Pakistan. definitely there will be a healthy compitition for best news and editorials here. People will get an opportunity to express their views internationally. I hope for the better criticisim positively on governtment of Pakistan and other Super powers.It will also guide the international community about the real prblems of people of Pakistan. It will also provide an oppotunity to other peoples to have debate with pakistani peoples.

    To Mr. M ZIAUDDIN and the very young and aggressive editorial team of Express Tribune:-

    The paper has come as a need of the hour. People are fed up with the negativity that other publications are printing. The is a lot of talent and hope in this beloved land of ours, only that we don’t see, hear and feel it. Having been associated very closely with one of the senior most journalists of Pakistan Mr. Sultan Ahmed as his son, I have seen the brutalities that honest and upright journalists have to face. Many have lost their lives and suffered injuries, faced imprisonment and more so now because of the live electronic media reporting, but they stood firm to their cause and never flinched from the dedication to duty. Instead they died with their boots on. Express Tribune is a tribute to all those valiant soldiers of a thankless profession called Journalism.
    Having read most of the English publications which at one time I used go through eleven newspapers which i curtailed on medical grounds, the Express Tribune is indeed a breath of fresh air. If it maintains a balance in its editorial policy and gives accurate and timely information in the form of news to the readers it has a bright future. My best wish for the success of this outstanding publication.

    The Express Tribune should try to invest more and keep improving its version on the internet and follow global trends instead of trailing behind and getting caught up in the muddled competition with the oldish newsprint sector. In the beginning they may face some delayed paybacks but in the long run they will definitely reap greater dividends. I suggest they take a leading role and be among the first to get a foothold influence on the new generation of readers of electronic content and get them addicted to reading it on their desktops, laptops, blackberrys, mobiles and ipads. Good Luck to the Tribune!Recommend

    Eventually a new Dawn has cracked on the horizon of Print Media in particular the English Newspapers.
    I congratulate you over the print edition of EXPRESS TRIBUNE. It really is a bold, innovative and great step forward in the field of journalism. It will lead to the propagation of information, knowledge and news that is accessible to majority. Still majority Pakistanis have no access to internet so this print edition will provide them with something really enchanting and informative.
    I pray for your further success.
    Now when you have launched the Print edition, I believe you will need some journalists or writers for your paper. Our students currently undertaking Mass Communication or Journalism degree have extraordinary writing qualities both in Urdu and English. You can provide them an exposure and outlet so that they may realize themselves,step in practical journalism and render their services for Print media. I myself being a student of Mass Communication at International Islamic University Islamabad and I have an instinct for writing and I write a lot and by Allah’s grace, my various writings on different issues have made their way and published in renowned English Newspapers of Pakistan. I want to work with some newspaper for experience. I only want some practical experience in this field. I don’t want any pay or income. I just want to learn something and polish myself up for tougher challenges lying ahead for me in this arduous field.
    I look forward to seeing a response from your newspaper for young writers and future journalists. I hope that you will not disappoint me. Awaiting positive anticipations.Recommend

    Express Tribune is a wonderful addition to a handful of professional English-language newspapers in the land of the pure. With men like Ziauddin at the helm, the paper will certainly take giant strides in days to come.

    i request express media group tha please give some coverage to our LUMHS….!
    our lumhs acting director student affairs is not managing student affairs properly and he has been engaged in inciting political groups and hence continously been violating university rules and regulations…….
    he has maintained his post by yhe underhand methods with the help of poltical forces……….. majorityu of the students of our LUMHS is not satisfied with his performance but students can do nothing because acting D.S is the sort of mafia group of LUMHS which does not pave the way for the proper implementations of rules and regulations in LUMHS……
    I request to express media group that please this issue with no delay. thanksRecommend

    Indeed it must be an aplaudable effort by the energatic group of express media.On one hand it is a postive omen in the progress of telecommunication parallel to the civilized and developed nations.But what we should expect is it always focus on real issues of our society and portray the true image of pakistan.I am optimistic in this regard it will shed light on the focal points.

    whenever money-hoarders set a media outlet to become the vehicle of their objectives,they are not necessarily objective in presentation; keeping media in their hands, they want to buttress their bargaining power to keep their empire safe from coercive application of laws of the time. Recommend

    Now, here’s some great stuff surfacing up on the print media scene of Pakistan. All I’d say at this point is that we are waiting for the Express Tribune to extend it’s publications and subscriptions throughout the country, including Peshawar.

    We are waiting eagerly. All the best!

    This is a landmark done by Express Media Group to launch an English newspaper which covers most of the major as well as minor problems related to the Pakistani nation. Hopefully, this paper will prove unbiased and unprejudiced paper and will throw light on those issues which are seldom exposed or manipulated. Being fair is a prerequisite for any paper to gain strength in today’s shrunk world with unprecedented competition. My sincere prays are with this newspaper and I expect this newspaper will be a role-model for all the territorial and national papers.

    Dear All:

    Not a very bad show with so high treasures of money you people have. However, people with a lot less money are doing much more if you compare amount of money and amount of work being done.

    I hope you will forgive me as friends tell it all to you, whereas enemies will not tell what may benefit you, as they will make you feel big and great but will make you lose, if and whenever they get a chance.
