Weekly Holiday

The Weekly Holiday is an independent Friday English-language newsweekly in Bangladesh. Founded by the late eminent journalist Enayetullah Khan in 1965, it was one of the most influential newspapers in East Pakistan and was known for its outspoken stance against successive Pakistani regimes. In newly independent Bangladesh, it was a staunch critic of the government of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and was briefly banned in 1975. Since the 1990s, however, the paper has seen a significant decline in circulation. It enjoys close ties with the Bangladesh Nationalist Party. [1]
