We are a single organisation operating in various ways, all with the sole aim of presenting the history and culture of South Asia to those cut off from participation in the present and preserving these resources for future generations wherever in the world they may live their lives.
LAFZ Magazine is completely independent and has been developed for the Pakistani diaspora and beyond. It aims to act as a bridge to strengthen understanding of and affiliation with our rich ancestral culture. It also aspires to provide a democratic forum for all views that are not hate filled, illegal or libellous. LAFZ toes no party line and is inclusive rather than exclusive.
We at LAFZ are committed to publishing high quality features and comment at regular intervals. Both editor and staff are ready to embrace new technologies and eager to explore the growing sector of digital publishing, believing that both print and digital forms can exist in harmony, serving readers in different ways.
We support democracy, peaceful coexistence and universal literacy. LAFZ is simply the Urdu for words and was chosen in the belief that the ability to read and write is the sole pathway that leads to democracy and economic progress in the world today.
At present LAFZ Magazine is published as a quarterly hardcopy with longer articles and greater content that is available on subscription. There is also a blog which is updated on daily basis. These forms may change in compliance with readers’ wishes and technical innovation but certain factors will remain constant. LAFZ will remain independent, reader-responsive and will never be affiliated with any political party or pressure group. We will continue to cover politics, culture, art, history, music and sport and to encourage the free discussion of current events and the role of Pakistan in the world of today.
