Editorial Philosophy

Sinar Harian has come a long way since its first Kelantan edition in June 2006. Since then, the country’s first state customized national newspaper, with eight editions and with its transparent and neutral reporting style has carved its niche in the Malaysian media landscape.

At Sinar Harian, we believe in credibility and integrity in our news reporting and we have made these age old qualities our middle name. We deliver national, state and community news in the true spirit of journalism ie. reporting as is, transparently, objectively and neutrally. Sensitive political, religious and social issues are covered by us objectively and neutrally without fear of favor.

This made many of our readers which include academicians, businessmen, professionals, the man on the street and politicians – not just from the ruling parties but also from the opposition, to respect us.
