Shargh is Back!

Iran’s flagship daily, Shargh, was given the go-ahead to publish again. The largest-circulation newspaper in the Islamic Republic had been banned for the past six months for publishing a cartoon deemed offensive to the Iranian president.
Congratulations to Mohammad Ghoochani, Shargh’s Editor-in-Chief, and the entire staff for this well-deserved victory. The nation awaits seeing Shargh in the newsstands soon.
Also today, the editorial team behind Shargh launched a new weekly, Shahrvand (Citizen). We expect to see its content to be as lively as Shargh.
