Basharat Peer to have a rerun with NYT, made op-ed editor of international edition

Kashmiri journalist Basharat Peer has been appointed as the op-ed editor of New York Times’ international edition. Top sources confirmed the news to exchange4media. The move is set to bring back Peer, an Ivy League alumnus from Columbia University, to NYT. He earlier edited the famous “India Ink” blog of The Gray Lady.

This time around, however, he will be working primarily for the newspaper instead of the website. He will help edit and give shape to the opinion pages of the International New York Times. The details of Peer’s new job are slated to be officially released by his employer on December 1.

Besides his journalistic exploits which included stints with Foreign Affairs, Tehelka and Rediff, Peer is best known for authoring “Curfewed Nights”. The memoir revolves around the conflict-ridden state of Jammu & Kashmir and was awarded with the Crossword Prize in non-fiction category.

He also co-wrote ‘Haider’, a Bollywood film directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. His appointment at NYT comes just a month after NDTV’s consulting editor Barkha Dutt was made a contributing columnist at The Washington Post.   

The international edition of NYT is edited out of Hong Kong, London, New York and Paris. It has specially gained traction in the former two markets. Peer’s joining is likely to embolden the organisation to further increase their presence in uncharted territories.
