Biography


Notes

Facebook post condemning Timah name on local Whiskey brand

“Siti Fatimah, Fatimah, Sarimah, Partimah, Kak Timah, Mek Timah, Timah – these are Malay names that are linked to Islam.

Naming the whiskey Timah is a provocation that will cause anger, especially among Malay Muslims.

Authorities, please take appropriate action. These wine producers have to understand the sensitivities of other races.

Don’t wait for people to get angry.”
