Off the Cuff

Khaleeq Kiani has come from a small village in Pakistan side of Kashmir, where he started his career as a teacher. He chose journalism as profession by choice and did Masters in Journalism from University of Peshawar. Driven by the passion to know and let his countrymen know how successive governments have been cheating them, he has contributed a lot of investigative and educative stories to the media, primarily being print. Many of the issues raised in his writings really made impact and forced the government to improve its policies for better and on ocassion made them reverse altogether as the public pressure developed.

He contributes a regular weekly feature column in Daily Dawn, Pakistan's largest English language newspaper. He also contributes a weekly economic article in one of Dawn's flagship economic weekly magazine "Economic & Business Review Weekly (EBR Weekly). In addition, he continues to extensively reports on economic, political and energy sector issues.
