Malaysia

Launched on November 20th, 1999, Malaysiakini.com offers daily news and views in English, Malay, Chinese and Tamil, delivering over 40 million page views and 1 million hours of reading time to over 2 million absolute unique visitors (Google Analytics, Jan 2012).

As of July 2008, Malaysiakini became the most read news website and the most popular Malaysian website (Alexa.com).

Malaysiakini’s editorial position is built on fast, accurate and independent news, and well informed and diverse views.

Malaysiakini’s Letters section has generated active participation from readers of all races and religions and of various ideological backgrounds, creating an open and well-informed arena of public debate unseen in Malaysia since the 1960s. Discussion on taboo subjects such as migrant workers, AIDS, Islam and racial quota systems has generated a new understanding on these issues.

Our editorial position is consistently supportive of justice, human rights, democracy, freedom of speech and good governance.
