About Saif Hasnat

Saif Hasnat, full name Saifullah Saif Hasnat, is a journalist working in Bangladesh. Currently, he works at the United News of Bangladesh (UNB), along with some freelancing for other international outlets including The New York Times. 

He started his career back in 2013 as a cricket reporter. He now covers nearly everything in Bangladesh-- from cricket to politics, national development to disaster, lives to civil liberties, refugee crisis to rise of extremism in the country. 

He wrote for the Huffington Post about Bangladesh's first educational institute for transgenders, he also took the keyboard for The Quint when the Bangladesh government failed to manage the Covid-19 situation in the country in 2020, and when Bangladesh amended a law to introduce the death penalty for rape cases. 

Saif also got published in The New York Times as a freelancer in June 2021 when tens of thousands of migrant workers flee Dhaka, Bangladesh's capital city, fearing tough days prompted by a nationwide lockdown imposed to curb the spread of Covid-19. 

Saif is also known a little as a lyricist and a story writer. You can hear the songs written by him on Soundcloud and you can collect his first storybook from Rokomari.
