Tun Mahathir Mohamed is apparently remorseful that he used the ‘K’ (keling) word.

Indian roots nothing to be ashamed of
“I am very proud of being a daughter of Indian parents,” declared Nikki Haley, the United States ambassador to the United Nations.
Haley’s ambassadorial position carries member-of-cabinet status, and some fans go as far as considering her to be presidential material. Previously Ms Nimrata (her full name) was governor of South Carolina – video below.
A child of a Punjabi immigrant couple, Haley asserts that she would never disown her Indian roots. She is proud to tell everyone how her father wore the turban and her mother the sari even after the family had settled in America.
Haley herself had two wedding ceremonies – one Sikh and one Christian.
Say it proud — Kerala
Quite unlike someone at home who still persists with the convoluted spin on his genealogical origin…
Tun Mahathir is the best person to desensitize the ‘P’ (pendatang) word through forthrightly taking the bull by its horns but rather than rising to the challenge, he prefers denial instead.
His grandfather was Iskandar Kutty who immigrated here from the state of Kerala in India. And it shows – the grandson obviously has the stereotypical ‘subcontinental’ nose”, no?
Today Tun M is leading a coalition where its biggest and strongest party DAP preaches non stop on how they have so righteously risen above just looking at the colour of a person’s skin.
If anti racism and “colour blindness” is the purported creed of Pakatan Harapan, then what is the big deal about acknowledging one’s Indian heritage?
All that lofty posturing by Pakatan simply does not square with the forked tongue behaviour that they display daily.
