The Associated Journals Limited, a company founded in 1937 by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, has launched the beta version of its English website, www.nationalheraldindia.com today on the occasion of Nehru’s 127th birth anniversary.
In keeping with the changing times, the newspaper group resumes phased publication as a multi-media outlet with a strong digital presence. The digital website will follow the same editorial vision and principles as that of its Founder, Nehru. It remains committed to furthering the values it has always cherished and the best values of the Freedom Movement – that of building a modern, democratic, just, equitable, liberal and socially harmonious nation, free of sectarian strife.
Launched in 1938 as a daily newspaper in the vanguard of the Indian Freedom Movement by Nehru, the National Herald proudly proclaimed its commitment on its masthead inscribed in Nehru’s hand, ‘Freedom is in Peril, Defend it with All Your Might’. During its halcyon days even in decades after independence, the National Herald group of newspapers, including Navjivan in Hindi and Quami Awaz in Urdu, lent its influential voice to the efforts of building such a nation striving for world peace and imbued with rationality and scientific temper that Nehru had inculcated.
