 More choices for the community as this is paper number 4, in addition to Malaysia Nanban, Makkal Osai and Tamil Nesan. Anyway, I look forward for their news and articleswhich is claimed “will be for the upliftment of the lives of the Indian community in Malaysia”.

A new Tamil newspaper, Thina Kural (Daily Voice), is to hit the streets on Feb 9.

Its managing director is Aruul Kumar, 29, son of the late A Athikumanan, a former editor-in-chief of Tamil daily Malaysia Nanban, on whose birthday the daily is being launched, said editor-in-chief BR Rajan.

Rajan, 53, who has 34 years of experience in journalism, said the company, located at Batu Complex in Jalan Ipoh, would bring out 31,000 copies daily and 47,000 copies on Sunday for a start.

Thina Kural is aimed at, among other things, contributing to improving the lives of the Malaysian Indian community at all levels, he told Bernama in a telephone interview today.

“News and articles in Thina Kural will be for the upliftment of the lives of the Indian community in Malaysia. We want to play such a role for society, especially for the lower income group,” he said.

Rajan said the fourth Tamil daily in the country is a tribute to Athikumanan, a legend in the Tamil newspaper industry. Apart from Malaysia Nanban, the other two Tamil dailies in the country are Tamil Nesan and Makkal Osai.
