The first manuscript of Roshni Newspaper was published on 21st October, 2005 as laboratory publication by the Department of Media and Communication Studies.
The basic concept behind the publication of newspaper was to equip the students with the practical skills required in the professional field of Print Media.
The first publication was shaped after the soulful contributions of the people chairing the department, faculty members, staff and students of batch 2003.
The efforts were initiated by Mr. Har Bux Makhijani, former Chairman of the department and were carried on by Mr. Agha Rafique former Chairman of the department with the true assistance of Mr. Sohail Sangi, a renowned journalist of Pakistan and a faculty member Department of Media and Communication Studies.
The practical work of Roshni provided an insight about news reporting, writing, editing and other related things which are considered necessary for the publication of a newspaper. The contents of news items were kept relevant to the academic and constructive activities of the campus.
Students under the professional guidance of teachers and other faculty staff were given responsibility to carry out the whole process of news gathering and publishing so that they may gain experience of newspaper production.
The first issue with 350 copies of Roshni was published by the batch 2003 of the department. Later, innovations were made by forthcoming batches.
