This newspaper is indirectly related to the Malaysian newspaper of the same name, Berita Harian. Although both were established on the same date, 1 July 1957, they were split in September 1972 as the Singaporean one is non-politically aligned whilst the Malaysian one remains aligned with United Malays National Organisation.[1][2]
