Amar Desh

Amar Desh is a daily bangla newspaper published from Dhaka in Bengla language. Amar Desh was founded back in 2004. Amar Desh supplies information concerning Bangladesh from regional and local standpoints and covers global news. Amar Desh is a prominent opposition newspaper in Bangladesh and takes an editorial stance that favors the Bangladesh Nationalist Celebration.

The Awami League government has shut down Amar Desh twice. Restrictions took place in both of the times and Mahmudur Rahman was arrested. On 1 June 2010, the editor was imprisoned and the government shut the newspaper down for 10 days.

Mahmudur Rahman was jailed in 11 April 2013 once again for releasing the Skype conversations between the lead justice of Bangladesh’s war crimes tests and Ahmed Ziauddin. Critics of the paper say it harmed the credibility of Bangladesh’s war crimes court and increased religious strains that resulted in rioting and brutality.

BNP political leader, Mosaddek Ali Falu and Enayetur Rahman Bappi, handling supervisor of Ntv, officially introduced Amar Desh on 23 September 2004. Reporter Amanullah Kabir was the editor of Amar Desh before it changed hands. At the time of the administration change, Ataus Samad was the acting editor. Mahmudur Rahman and TWENTY other investors took ownership and formed a brand-new board of directors 6 October 2008. Rahman became the chairperson of Amar Desh Publications Hashmat Ali was listed as author.

In 2010, Rahman explained Amar Desh before his arrest: “We are the third biggest national daily and have the second biggest Internet readership. In 2013, the circulation of Amar Desh rose greatly to 200,000 copies daily. A concern of Amar Desh is sold for 12 taka.
