Editorial writing is a part of Journalistic culture. Literary Editorial writing in Urdu started from newspapers. Editorials are usually written by an editor of a magazine or news paper. The editorial is not only a reflection of the editor's temperament and taste, but also represents the policies that are consistently considered essential to this particular journal. Historically, the first impression of literary editorial writing in Urdu are found in Tehzeeb-ul-Akhlaq (1870) After that, these early trends in editorial writing in Urdu literature continued to evolve in different periods. Among the early periodicals and journals, Makhzan, Zamana, Asmat, Salay-e-Aam, Humayun, Nigar, Nerang-Khayal are not only noteworthy but also important. But his editorials refrained from interfering in matters of debate, criticism, debate, affirmation and negation, and linguistic and scientific matters. "Nigar" is the most important of these. Nigar avoided any compromise in academic matters, and turned institutional writing into art. This tradition of Nigar was followed by later magazines. It is clear from the history of literary editorial writing that over time, journals have tried to understand their perspectives by making their presentation, content layout and literature the subject.
