The Delhi Urdu Akhbar was a significant newspaper during the late 19th and early 20th centuries in India. It was published in the Urdu language and played an important role in shaping public opinion and discourse during the time.
In terms of language, the Delhi Urdu Akhbar was distinct from both Persian Akhbarat and English newspapers. Persian Akhbarat were publications in the Persian language that were popular in India during the Mughal era and continued to be published during the British Raj. They focused on political and cultural news and were primarily read by the elite class. English newspapers, on the other hand, were introduced by the British and were meant for the British colonial officials and the educated Indian elites who could read English.
The Delhi Urdu Akhbar, being written in the Urdu language, catered to a broader audience that included the educated Muslim middle class, who were not necessarily fluent in English. The newspaper covered a wide range of topics, including politics, culture, society, and economics, and presented news in a style that was more accessible to the common people.
