Mahathir's lineage of Yemeni origin?

Now the Mahathir patronymic saga has expanded.

It seems that Iskandar Kutti was not Mahathir's dad but rather his granddad, one generation above.

From a Facebook posting by the Mukhriz Fan Club (Mukhriz is the 3rd son of Mahathir), granddad Iskandar married Siti Hawa from Johor and subsequently dad Mohamad married Wan Tempawan Bt Wan Hanafi.

Thus Mahathir is not half Malayalam but rather quarter Malayalam, making him closer to being a Melayu tulen.

my matey maniam told me in malaysia, malayalam hotties are the sweetest, with skin like the hue of ripe mangoes 

But the Mukhriz Fan Club said 'balderdash' to that conclusion. The Facebook posting had claimed that those from Kerala are not native to India but of Yemeni lineage.

Wow, I didn't know that, though I have read and even posted in 2012 on Mufti Harussani claiming that Malays are ‘special’ because they are related to Islam, unlike the Arabs, some of whom are Christians, wakakaka.

And then in 2006 there was Dr Syed Ali Tawfik Al-Attas telling us:

“The Melayu is defined as first being a Muslim and because he’s a Muslim, he follows the customs and traditions of the Malays which are derived from Islam, followed by the language of the Malays which (also) derives from Islam.”

Malay language was derived from Islam? What about the words 'bumiputera', 'agama', 'raja', 'bangsa' and 'negara'?

Yes brothers and sisters, there has been this incessant desire by some Malays or Muslims in Malaysia to claim lineage from Arabia or the Quran or both. As one of my visitors remarked, the Malay Muslims in our country seem to lack confidence in their ethnic pedigree. 

Anyway, back to the Mukhriz Fan Club's Facebook page claiming those from Kerala are not native to India but of Yemeni lineage - if correct this would mean Mahathir's granddad was a Yemeni Arab and not a Malayalam. Wow and double wow, what a pedigree, but my apologies to Malayalam.

Who knows, granddad might even have a connection, no matter how tenuous, to Prophet Mohamad (pbuh)?

But whatever, thank Allah swt that at least that Facebook posting has gotten rid from Mahathir of the despicable Indian connections, again my apologies to Malayalam and other Indians.

But best of all, Mahathir is now 3/4 Arab (from Yemen) and only one quarter Melayu. Fantastic, what a magnificent marvellous mix of a Malay Muslim.

As an aside, I wonder whether those from Tamilnadu are also NOT native to India but of Omani lineage, or perhaps of Saudi origin?

hot looking Yemeni sweeties

malayalam hotties are no fight to these babes, wakakaka

Just one last query, did Mahathir's original name have an "a/l" (anak lelaki kepada) abbreviation?

Or was it (as the Mukhriz Fan Club might argue for) an "ibn" instead, like Mahathir ibn Mohamad ibn Iskandar Kutti?


  1. Since there are so many rumours floating around....I might as well add another one (which is apparently quite possibly true...)

    Once upon a time....the young student Mahathir had the hots for a Chinese girl in Singapore....
    He ended up being humiliated....and that episode quite likely had a subsequent impact on the entire history of Malaysia...

    1. sh*t you beat me to that rumour-story. Yes, that saga turned him into a Chinese-hating bloke

  2. kt obsession with race r on par or worst than umno. he can be a buddy to hadi, another racist.

    1. Ktemoc is not so much a racist as such, but he is prepared to stoop to use racist arguments, or distribute other's racist arguments in order to attack people he dislikes intensely e.g. Mahathir, Anwar etc.

    2. why Monsterball that's the sweetest thing you've said about me, wakakaka, and ta

  3. In the bad old days of slavery and racism in the American South and Caribbean, there was an obsession on the "racial purity" of a person. With those who had mixed white-black ancestry, there was a pecking order related to how much (how little) black ancestry a person had.

    If you read old novels from the 18th or 19th century, there were common terms such as Quadroons (one quarter black) and Octoroon (one eight black).

    Such hateful terms have disappeared from modern writings, but looks like such racism is very much alive in Malaysia.

    1. racism exists within our collective subconscious because of our primordial fear of the strange and unknown (or unfamiliar). in malaysia in particular, because of years of racial indoctrination, firstly by deliberate government policy especially during the mahathir days and thus through official indoctrination via agencies such as btn, this primordially-nurtured 'fear' is emphasised. in reaction to official racism the non-malays also practise and engender racism of their own. it's a lose-lose situation
