Hannah Yeoh claimed today that wearing tudung does not change her race or faith.
What a confusing statement emanating from a confused mind — see Malaysiakini top story headline below.
But to begin with, what is her race actually?
We remember that she had wanted to register her newborn child as bangsa “Anak Malaysia”.
Nonetheless, when the National Registration Department did not allow her to do that, Hannah reluctantly agreed that her (elder) daughter is “Cina” — see below photo of Hannah’s birth cert application for her child.
The race of Hannah’s younger daughter is Indian.
Imagine, two siblings in the Yeoh family – both having the same parents – yet they’re registered with the NRD one as Chinese, the other as Indian.
This kind of diversity confusion can only come from DAP leaders.
Hannah’s claim that wearing hijab “doesn’t change my race or my faith” is hardly original. It mirrors something Lim Kit Siang said not too long ago.
The elder Lim had declared learning Jawi “doesn’t make me any less of a Chinese” — see FMT report above.
Another a confusing statement emanating from another confused mind. It’s easy to see how Kit Siang is Hannah’s mentor.
Their fellow DAP Yang Berhormat Zairil Khir Johari is in turn a protege of Lim Guan Eng.
While Guan Eng had famously proclaimed himself as “not a Chinese”, DAP had been equally insistent to proclaim that Zairil is a Melayu.
And just as Hijabi Hannah is the female face of
religious secular DAP, Zairil is the party’s go-to muka Melayu (below).
Well, it has been said that Zairil was born to Chinese parents and later adopted by a prominent Malay figure Tan Sri Khir Johari.
So it’s like this.
Hannah: Wearing hijab “doesn’t change my race or my faith”
Kit Siang: Learning Jawi “doesn’t make me any less of a Chinese”
DAP: Getting adopted changed Zairil’s race from Chinese to Malay!
And Zairil is reported to have telegraphed the most ‘confusing’ (being polite here) message to Najib on the topic of race — see Malaysian Insider BM’s tweet back in 2015, below.
Hannah can out-tudung Wanita Umno and Zairil is capable of out-Melayuing the Umno scions.
