Why is Blitz considered as an influential newspaper?


One of the key reasons, Blitz, a newspaper publishing from Bangladesh since 2003 with print and online edition being considered as influential by the international community, including Western policymakers is its editorial policy of publishing truth and avoid the rogue culture of “whining” and twisting and molesting fact. This newspaper which also is known to millions as Weekly Blitz certainly holds the guts and audacity of following the principle of fearless and bold journalism. That is why its slogan is – “Fears none but God”. Truly Blitz fears none – not even the mightiest and most fearful, cruel and heartless man on the earth – Joe Biden or monstrous puppets of Western nation’s military industrial complex. It dares to expose crimes of America’s First Family – the Bidens, while it also has been consistently exposing numerous types of crimes committed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his neo-Nazi cronies in Kiev. Blitz stands at the forefront in exposing untold secrets of Iran’s mullah regime as well as other terrorist groups in the Middle East and beyond.

As to exposing corruption, Blitz is a big name as on a regular basis it continues exposing shocking information on high-profile corruption in various countries in the world. It also continues exposing dangerous agendas of global terrorist outfits and their networks.

Due to its fearless and unbiased editorial policy of presenting truth against lies, disinformation and fake news, a very large number of global news outlets, news aggregators and syndication services are regularly re-catering contents of this prestigious newspaper – while it is quoted by leading newspapers, news agencies, TV channels and radio stations, including Reuters, Lexis-Nexis, EuroNews, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, The Hill, CNN, Fox News, BBC, CNBC, The HTDS, CGTN, WN, OZ Arab Media, WN, URA, Rambler, Russian RT, Radio 1, Pravda, Conservative Brief, Lenta, Gazeta, AIF, Daily Excelsior, Hitavada, Pressenza, Arabian Post, Times of India, Indian Express, Telegraph, The Hindu, Republic TV, NewsX, Jihad Watch, Berliner Zeitung, The Jerusalem Post, The Arutz Sheva and many others.

On its ‘About Us’ page, this newspaper says, “Blitz is an independent newspaper, established in 2003 for the purpose of presenting balanced coverage of events. Since inception, we have been vigorously confronting radical Islam, political Islam and militancy; denouncing antisemitism and Holocaust denial, and promoting interfaith harmony. It is an independent journal that has been publishing the truth under extreme adversities.

“Blitz firmly believes, it is the responsibility of the state not only to protect and defend the citizen but also to create the conditions – political, social, economic, and cultural, in which all citizens may achieve their highest potential as human beings. It is committed to the principle of individual freedom.

“Our slogan is – Fears None But God, meaning, we have the audacity of publishing truth against lies and bias. For years, we have been upholding this principle despite multiple forms of challenges. In today’s world of insanity and biased journalism, Blitz possibly is the only newspaper that has been boldly confronting injustice, religious bigotry, radical Islam and political Islam. For this reason, it has emerged as the most influential newspaper enjoying credibility and acceptability amongst the policymakers in the world. Because of our investigative reports, Islamist militancy groups such as Hizbut Tahrir, Hizbut Towhid, Khatmey Nabuwat Movement, etcetera were banned in Bangladesh and the West. Blitz has been the first newspaper to expose the notorious activities of Zakir Naik, a radical Islamic preacher, who has now been banned in a number of countries including Bangladesh, Canada, India, and the United Kingdom. We also are against militancy outfits such as Al Qaeda, Islamic State, Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Houthi, Boko Haram, Al Shabab etcetera.
