The Daily Star (Bangladesh)
The Daily Star is the largest circulating daily English-language newspaper in
Bangladesh. Founded by Syed Mohammed Ali on 14 January 1991, as Bangladesh
transitioned and restored parliamentary democracy, The Daily Star emerged as a
leading and influential national newspaper of record. Its editorial stance is
characterized by staunch liberal and progressive ideals emanating from the
Liberation of Bangladesh; a reputation for non-partisan quality reportage and a
distinguished record of investigative journalism. The newspaper's position in
Bangladesh is comparable to that of The New York Times in the United States and
The Independent in the United Kingdom.
Its motto, "Committed to People's Right to Know", appears on the upper-middle
section of the front page. The newspaper is led by Mahfuz Anam, a freedom fighter
and former United Nations official. Its principal bureaus are located in Dhaka and
Chittagong, with several representatives abroad. It is organized to sections: News,
Opinion and Editorial, Star Business, Star Sports, Arts and Entertainment, National
and Metropolitan. Its major supplements include The Star, Forum, Lifestyle, Star
Literature, Law & Our Rights, Shout, Star Insight and Science and Life.
The Daily Star is owned by Mediaworld, in which a major share is held by Latifur

the most widely read Bengali newspapers in the world.
