I Remember When... 'We went to jail for Hamid Tuah'
Her father was the legendary Hamid Tuah, the revolutionary who opened up land for poor peasants in many parts of the country.
I HAVE many memories of my father even though he was away most of the time when I was a child.
He was in and out of jail between 1961 and 1969, imprisoned for what he believed in, and our family suffered a great deal.
But his cause inspired the whole nation, from the student movement to civil society.

Mungkin tidak ramai generasi hari ini yang tahu siapakah Hamid Tuah. Beiau adalah pelopor peneroka tanah untuk mereka yang tidak bertanah. Ikutilah kisah beliau dalam NST 1/11/2009
Yes I remember parts of the story. Hamid Tuah was a much mentioned personality in the 60s.ReplyDelete
His daughter maybe elder sister to the informer of this story if I am not mistaken, her name was Fatimah Sham may have grown up to be a Prof. somewhere. She may have some important part of the story never yet disclosed about Anuar Ibrahim. If only somebody can get in touch with her, that interesting part of the story may be discovered.
Waiting for the book by Siti Noor. Will try to get few copies for distribution.ReplyDelete

Don't cast aspersions on Anwar Ibrahim. You are trying to play safe by insinuating something horrid about Anwar. If you're certain about it, be brave and tell it to us pointblank. Don't be like Nallakaruppan or Lokman Adam, or Ezzam. At least Anwar was brave to insinuate that Najib is involved in Altantuya's murder. But you are hiding behing the sarong of Hamid Tuah's daughter. How pathetic!
Waht exactly are you afraid of? That what you are insinuating is a lie? Anwar cannot go after you. he doesn't control the Police, the Courts or the AG. So no reason for you to fear.
A quite good story..ReplyDelete
