Kashmir Observer is one of the first English-language daily newspapers published in Srinagar in Kashmir, a state of India.

The daily began its publication in March 1997 when the local population, caught up in a bloody conflict and hungry for news, was dependent on newspapers coming from New Delhi.

The Observer is among the very few newspapers believed to have retained credibility despite heavy odds facing media in conflict-ridden Kashmir.

Kashmir Observer Online is the global face of the daily Kashmir Observer on the internet. Kashmir Observer Online is a major source of news and information for vast Kashmiri diaspora, intending tourists, business leaders, diplomats, journalists and those interested in India-Pakistan affairs.[1]

In 2012, the Kashmir Observer began publishing the Bazar Observer, Kashmir's first business newspaper.[2]

Sajjad Haider is the publisher and editor-in-chief of the Kashmir Observer.
