Following the confiscation of the Kayhan Newspaper after the Islamic Revolution, Iran’s government transformed the liberal broadsheet into a hardline newspaper. As a result, the newspaper’s original founder established Kayhan London in 1984, uniting a community that was scattered across five continents, and providing them with real news and information on Iran. With the advent of the Internet, Kayhan developed its presence online, eventually welcoming over one million visitors a month to the site. The paper celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2017. The name Kayhan, which means universe in Persian, encapsulates our journalistic philosophy: a well-rounded, all-encompassing news service that defends freedom of the press and the liberal values of pluralism, including ethnic, sexual and religious diversity, and a culture of openness and tolerance.
