The Daily Ittefaq Bangla Newspaper
The Daily Ittefaq is one of the oldest newspapers in Bangladesh. At the first time, it was a weekly newspaper and was published on 24 December 1953. Moulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhasani was the founder of the renowned newspaper and Tofazzal Hossain (widely known as Manik Mia) was the editor. It is serving the nation for a long long time and took a vital role in the contemporary issues at the time of the liberation war and even more. The management of Ittefaq was a strong supporter of Awamileague and ventilating peoples’ sentiment about the separation issues of Pakistan. It was very much critic about the widening of the two wings of Pakistan. It is considered to be the first vernacular newspaper.
Then at that time of the anti-Pakistan movement, it becomes the daily newspaper from the weekly. The ex-minister Anwar Hossain Manju who is the son of former founding editor Tofazzal Hossain Manik Mia is now the editor of the country’s old and renowned newspaper.
We should not compare today’s newspaper with the newspaper of Manik Miah’s at that time or any other newspaper especially bangle newspaper. That was the golden time of Ittefaq from 1954 to 1971. When East Pakistan was facing all kinds of problems from West Pakistan, from the central government, the Ittefaq became one of the mediums of protest.
