The current study is an exploratory study of Pakistan's print media to understand its role in the promotion
of Human rights as their promotion is the basic duty of every state as per the United Nations agenda. It is the content
analysis of four national dailies, both Urdu and English. Study finds out that there is no significant difference among both
types of papers in publishing news regarding Human Rights. But Urdu papers published more news about Human Rights
as compare to English Dailies. Both type of newspapers mostly published news about loss & damages and the
statements. Pakistani press is not conscious about the United Nations Agenda of "Promotion of Human Rights is the
responsibility of the states" and publishes the news about incidents objectively. Professional journalists should
differentiate between the “Human right journalism and human wrong journalism".
