Sinar Harian

Sinar Harian (English: Daily Light) is a Malay language daily newspaper published in Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia in a compact format. It first hit the newsstands on March 31, 2006 in the East Coast states of Kelantan and Terengganu before expanding its distribution to the state of Selangor and the federal territory of Kuala Lumpur in the West Coast in September 2007.

Unlike most mainstream media in Malaysia, Sinar is known for its relatively balanced reporting; its articles and columns present views from all sides of the Malaysian political spectrum. The newspaper also occasionally organises public forums and debates at which politicians and public figures are invited to speak, regardless of viewpoint. Notably, Sinar Harian was the only conventional Malay newspaper which reported favourably on the opposition-backed People's Uprising Rally on 13 January 2013, while other dailies such as Utusan Malaysia and Berita Harian either grossly distorted the events or ignored the rally altogether.

Sinar Daily is published by Akhbar Cabaran Sdn Bhd, a company related to the Kumpulan Karangkraf & Ultimate Group of Companies, a major publishing interest in Malaysia and currently has a cover price of RM 1.00.
