Tun Mahathir Bin Mohamad - THE TRUTH

Before you get to the history of our former Prime Minister, this is the TRUTH you should know. And please ponder and ask yourself whether what I'm revealing and asking makes sense to be voiced out or shall we just keep quiet and be FOOLED!!!!
"If a Chinese man marries an Indian woman and they have kids, their kids are registered as Chinese. If an Indian man marries a chinese lady and have kids, their kids are registered as Indians, right? So, in Malaysia the race of the babies born here follows the father."
"Now this is the intresting part, the former Malaysian Prime Minister, Tun Mahathir Bin Mohamad father was an immigrant form Kerala,India. An Indian born in India. His mom was a Malay. So, if we follow the correct procedure, Tun Mahathir is an Indian!!! He is a first generation Malaysian in his descendants."
"I am a fourth generation Malaysian. I have not been to India. India is not my mother land. Malaysia is!!!. If there is a hockey finals between Malaysia and India, I carry a Malaysian flag and support Malaysia. I sing,Negaraku not the Indian anthem. When I'm in a foreign land, anyone questions where I'm from , my answer is MALAYSIA. My birth certificate says,the nationality, WARGANEGARA MALAYSIA!!! This is my land. I was born here, raised up,studied,married, all my friends and relatives are here."
"O.K, this is the question I have,which really pissess me off!!! If Tun Mahathir, an Indian and called himself a bumiputra (1st generation Malaysian) why I am NOT!!!!! My father, mother, grandmother,grandfather and great grands were all hardcore Malaysian. We don't have anywhere to turn to but to our soil, Malaysia. But Tun Mahathir's father Mohamad Iskandar still had Kerala,India to turn to. And Mahathir is a Bumiputra...WOW!!! This is a CRIME...to cheat the people of Malaysia. I really don't care if he was considered a Bumiputra. The point here is, If he was a Bumiptra, then we non Malays born in Malaysia is also BUMIPUTRAS"
"Malaysia belongs to MALAYSIANS...NOT just Melayus!!!!!!!!!!!!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is a Malay name; the name "Mohamad" is a patronymic, not a family name, and the person should be referred to by the given name, "Mahathir".
Tun Mahathir bin Mohamad (pronounced [maˈhatir bin moˈhamat̚]; born July 10, 1925) is a retired Malaysian political figure. He was the fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia. He held the post for 22 years from 1981 to 2003, making him Malaysia's longest-serving Prime Minister, and one of the longest-serving leaders in Asia. During his term in office, he was credited for engineering Malaysia's rapid modernisation. Mahathir is also known for his criticisms towards western and developed countries.
During his administration, he was considered to be one of Asia's most influential leaders. Mahathir is also noted in the Western world as an outspoken critic of Western-style globalization.
Mahathir was born in a beautiful place called
Alor Star in Kedah, the capital of the northern Malaysian state of Kedah, the youngest of nine children of a schoolteacher and a housewife. His father, Mohamad Iskandar, was of half-Indian origin, being the son of a Malayalee Muslim (who migrated from Kerala) and a Malay mother, while Mahathir's own mother, Wan Tampawan, was Malay.
During World War II, he sold pisang goreng (banana fritters) and other snacks to supplement his family income during the Japanese occupation of Malaya. Mahathir attended a Malay vernacular school before continuing his education at the Sultan Abdul Hamid College in Alor Star. Mahathir then attended the King Edward VII Medical College (the predecessor of present-day National University of Singapore) in Singapore, where he edited a medical student magazine called The Cauldron; he also contributed to the The Straits Times newspaper pseudonymously under the nickname "Che Det". Mahathir was also President of the Muslim Society in the college. Upon graduation in 1953, Mahathir joined the then Malayan government service as a medical officer. He married Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali—a fellow doctor and former classmate in college—on 5 August 1956, and left government service in 1957 to set up his own private practice in Alor Star. Mahathir thrived in private practice, and allowed him to own by 1959 a Pontiac Catalina and employ an ethnic Chinese chauffeur (at the time, almost all chauffeurs in Malaysia were Malays, owing to the economic dominance of the ethnic Chinese). Some critics have suggested this foreshadowed a later hallmark of Mahathir's politics, which focused on the "cultivation of such emblems of power".
From his marriage with Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah binti Haji Mohamad Ali, they have seven children, four sons and three daughters: Marina Mahathir, Mirzan Mahathir, Melinda Mahathir, Mokhzani Mahathir, Mukhriz Mahathir, Maizura Mahathir and Mazhar Mahathir. Both Mukhriz and Mokhzani are involved in business as well as in politics while their eldest daughter Marina is a prominent local writer and AIDS activist.
He successfully underwent a heart bypass operation in 1989 at age 63.
Other controversies
Malaysia Airlines chief executive officer, Tajudin Ramli claimed that he (Tajudin) was "forced" to buy out the shares of Malaysia Airlines by Mahathir during a period when the national carrier suffered financial difficulties. However, Mahathir denied this claim and said that he only asked if Tajudin was interested in the shares.
In 2006 he had a 2-hour talk with James W. Walter and William Rodriguez with regards to the US Government involvement in the 9/11 attacks. He urged the world's 1.3 billion Muslims to boycott Dutch products following the release of the anti-Islam movie Fitna by the Dutch politician Geert Wilders, it was reported on 30 March 2008.
On 17 January 2008, Mahathir was brought before a Royal Commission that is looking into alleged manipulation of top judicial appointments during his administration, a scandal that has cast doubts about the independence of Malaysia's judiciary. He was made to testify before a government inquiry into a secretly recorded video clip that showed a man believed to be a prominent lawyer, V.K. Lingam, boasting that he could get key judicial appointments made with Mahathir's help. Throughout the inquiry Mahathir feign ignorance and forgot key timelines.[63] The Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Lingam video clip finally found that it was former Chief Justice Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim who was talking to prominent lawyer Datuk V.K. Lingam on the telephone. Sources said the five-man panel also found that the video clip was authentic and that the conversation was true in substance. They said the commission also found that it was lawyer Loh Mui Fah who Lingam was speaking to after his telephone conversation with Fairuz. Commission chairman Tan Sri Haidar Mohamed Noor presented a two-volume report on the findings to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin at the Istana Negara here yesterday. The Cabinet has ordered the attorney-general to immediately direct agencies to investigate on allegations levelled against six prominent individuals identified in the Lingam video clip. The six are former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, retired chief justices Tun Mohd Eusoff Chin and Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim, former minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, tycoon Tan Sri Vincent Tan and prominent lawyer Datuk V.K. Lingam.
Justice Datuk Ian Chin revealed that he received threats from a former prime minister in two cases he presided in Sibu in 1997. One being a libel suit and the other on an election petition matter. One was a judgment on a libel case involving MGG Pillai and Tan Sri Vincent Tan where he refused to give what he considered to be an astronomical award. The other judgment was in an election petition on Bukit Bangunan in the Sri Aman Division that he ruled in favour of Independent candidate Donald Lawan against Barisan Nasional candidate Mong Dagang. He also claimed that he and selected judges were sent to a boot camp to ensure they got the message. However, Mahathir has sinced rebuked Justice Ian Chin's allegations in his blog.
A retired Federal Court judge, Tan Sri Azmi Kamaruddin has alleged that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had wanted to amend Article 121 of the Federal Constitution because he wanted the judiciary to be under his control. He mentioned that Dr Mahathir’s agenda was tied to the Umno 11 case involving then Umno vice-president Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah whose supporters had challenged his post as Umno president

  1. Malay is a rojak race, who ever marries a Malay Muslim their offsprings become Malay.This is the same as in Sabah, whoveer has any proven native blood becomes a bumiputera.That is why in Sabah some Chinese are Bumiputeras and to verify their status they are issued with a surat anak negeri.
