Kashmir Herald and its staff expresses its deepest sympathies to the family of our fellow journalist Late Daniel Pearl, who laid down his precious life in pursuit of ultimate truth. We promise Daniel Pearl that we will continue to pursue his unfinished agenda of exposing the network of global terrorism. That would be our tribute to his departed soul.

Remembering Daniel Pearl
Editorial Team

Somewhere in late January or early February, the world lost a brave soul, leaving behind not only a loving family including an expectant widow, but a vast community of journalists and media personnel who work across the globe. Newsmen and women are just trying to report news as they see it, or hear it. Without them, the world would not be able to read its newspapers, listen to radio news or watch TV evening news.
