Urdu is the native language of Pakistan, however, there was no existing platform for Urdu writers to
publish their content digitally. With printing options becoming expensive day by day and a lack of
audience in print media, there was a huge need for a digital solution.
Umera Ahmed who is a multiple award-winning Urdu writer envisioned Alif Kitab to fulfill the need for a
comprehensive digital platform for Urdu writers and partnered with OneByte to deliver the right product.
She chose to work on Alif Kitaab after determining how difficult it was for upcoming writers to exhibit
their work to a wider audience.
