The Daily Observer hit the stands in Bangladesh on 1st February in 2011 after
now defunct Bangladesh Observer stopped publication in 2010.
Following the independence from British rule, the Pakistan Observer came to the
light in 1949. It had a great role in shaping public opinion of Pakistan, in
particular, East Pakistan. After East Pakistan became independent as Bangladesh,
the newspaper was renamed Bangladesh Observer and was published under Bangladesh
Observer Group. It continued to ventilate people's grievance with courage. With
the passage of time, the youth of the newspaper declined and eventually it was
closed in 2010.
Iqbal Sobhan Chowdhury, the last editor of the Bangladesh Observer, initiated
publishing of the newspaper again in the name of the Daily Observer under the
auspices of Observer Ltd. The directors of the company are Mostafizur Rahman,
Yussuf Abdullah Harun, Maksudur Rahman, Dr. Jamshed Sanyiath Ahmed Choudhury FCA,
Md. Akram Hossain Humayun, Faridur Reza Sagar, Shykh Seraj, Salahuddin Ahmed,
Salina Ali, Md. Shahidul Ahsan, Mahbuba Helen, Md. Yasin Ali, Mir Mosharref
Hossain, A K M Shaheed Reza, Md. Kamal Uddin and Mabroor Hossain.
