We pioneered the promotion of indigenous languages of Jammu including but not restricted to Dogri, Pahari and Gojjri along with ensuring new coverage in Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi and English for better understanding by the masses. We are headquartered in Jammu region which is somewhat more peaceful than Kashmir and thus receives little to no media coverage. Our attempt is to reach out to all the peripheries of Jammu and Kashmir to voice the concerns of the people in the language they understand better. We also have a separate section dedicated to the Kashmiri Pandit community that faced exodus in the 1990s due to conflict in Kashmir and later settled in Jammu. The Awan News
