Politik Anak Bapa (2004 – 2020)

After Lat, New Straits Times, 11 April 2009 re-presented in Shannon’s blog.

2008 – Mukhriz won the Jerlun Parliament Seat

2013 – Mukhriz won the Kedah State Assembly seat of Ayer Hitam and was appoint Chief Minister of Kedah for the 1st time.

 2018 – Mukhriz was appointed Chief Minister of Kedah for the second time when Pakatan Harapan, led by his father, won the general elections.

Pantun Keling Kedah!

Keling Kedah

Berpatah mengikut peradaban negerinya,
katanama ‘keling’ harus diterima!

Tetapi mengikut sekalangan warganya,
panggilan itu memaki rasanya.

Dalam kandang mengembek bermakna,
diluar, nadanya mengganggu sahaja!

While I am completely behind Tun Dr. Mahathir in terms the benign, even honourable, etymology of the term Keling, I have personally experienced its use in a derogatory fashion. There is no question that it is uttered and understood as a racial slur in the contemporary lexicon. Indeed, it is important to note that, in the context of the then fast-approaching GE 14, Tun backtracked from his contextual defense (the lexicon of his youth) and apologized for his insensitive use of the term.

Orang Kedah, India Muslem depa pangge Kelin, kat tempat laen depa pangge Mamak! Diantara orang yang dipanggil Keling, ada juga mereka yang dikenali sebagai Keling Pelikat dan diantara mereka yang bernama Melayu, kononnya, ada yang dipanggil Keling dahulu!
