Daily Azadi (Bengali: ডেইলি আজাদী) is a Bangladeshi newspaper published in Bangladesh.[1]


The Azadi was first published on 5 September 1960. The paper was pro-democracy and supported various autonomy movements in East Pakistan. It was blacklisted by the Pakistani Government for a year and banned from receiving government advertisement. It stopped publishing for three months during the Bangladesh Liberation War.[1][2]

Abdul Khaleq was the founding editor and publisher of Azadi. At first the price of the magazine was two annas (12 paise).[3] After Khaleq's death, his son-in-law Md. Mohammad Khaled took over as editor in 1962. MA Malek has been in charge of the newspaper since 2003 after his death.[4][3]
