Republika is an Indonesian national daily newspapers. The newspaper is known, and described itself, as a publication for Moslem community.[2]

Republika was founded in 1992 and the first edition was published on January 3, 1993 by Yayasan Abdi Bangsa, a foundation that supported by Ikatan Cendekiawan Muslim Indonesia (ICMI), which at the time was chaired by B.J. Habibie. After B.J. Habibie no longer became president in 1999, and in line with declining of the ICMI's political role, the majority of ownership is took by Mahaka Media in late 2000.

Now, Republika is published by PT Republika Media Mandiri, a subsidiary of Mahaka Media, and has become a general newspaper.
