Ahmad Zahid was born on 4 January 1953 in Bagan Datoh, the eldest son of nine children (seven sons and two daughters) in the family. His father, Raden Hamidi Abdul Fatah, was a Javanese native of Kulon Progo Regency, Yogyakarta, while his maternal grandfather came from Ponorogo in East Java and married his Malay grandmother.His father died on 8 August 2014 at the Armed Forces Hospital in Wangsa Maju Kuala Lumpur.
On 1 October 2011, his mother, Tuminah Abdul Jalil, also a native to Kulon Progo, Yogyakarta died of a stroke and heart complication in her hometown Sungai Nipah Darat, Bagan Datoh.
In 2013, on the occasion of the Republic’s Independence Day, Zahid caused a minor sensation when he proclaimed to Indonesian reporters that “over half of Malaysian ministers are of Indonesian descent” (as reported by national news agency Antara). That is an exceptional statistic.
Perhaps he wasn’t fated to become UMNO president from the beginning. It’s jinxed ever since Najib’s wife Rosmah Mansor engaged black magic to grab the throne and forcefully cling to power. Perhaps the arrogant Zahid should not have had mocked and insulted Mahathir Mohamad of his Indian ancestry – calling him the son of Iskandar “Kutty”. Karma is a bitch.
In a ‘Mahathir is not truly Malay’ campaign, the Malaysian deputy Prime Minister is said to have gone so low in claiming that former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad is of Indian origin.
Zahid accused Mahathir of using the Malays and Umno all this while on the “pretence” of championing the Malay agenda.
He brought up Mahathir’s Indian ancestry, saying that the man who had been prime minister for 22 years has a ‘blue IC’ that states that his name is Mahathir anak lelaki (son of) Iskandar Kutty. His IC number is 2232519.
“The National Registration Department (NRD) chief gave me this information,” said Zahid.
Little did Zahid know that the social media will be abuzz with his claim, with some blasting him off for the ‘racial’ attack.
The video below shows Zahid speaking in Malay, attacking Mahathir on his alleged Indian origin and making a point that people who have ‘anak lelaki’ or ‘son of’ in their identity cards are not Malays.
Others said since Zahid is of ‘Javanese’ origin – and saying that he praised his Javanese origin on Indonesian television recently – should ask Mahathir and the Indian Muslims for forgiveness.
“If you fail to ask forgiveness, lets all of us join forces and vote against the BN-Umno regime,” says one WhatsApp message circulating in Malaysia.
Ahmad Zahid Hamidi
1953 – Tahun lahir (lahir di Jawa, Indonesia / beliau & ibubapanya berasal dari Jawa).
1957 – Persekutuan Tanah Melayu merdeka.
1963 – Pembentukan Malaysia (Semenanjung Tanah Melayu, Sabah & Sarawak)

Ini bermakna Zahid Hamidi masuk ke Malaysia bukan sahaja selepas negara mencapai kemerdekaan malah selepas 2 tahun penubuhan Malaysia.
1. Adakah kemasukkan mereka ke Malaysia melalui saluran sah (Imigresen) atau adakah kemasukkan mereka melalui jalan-jalan haram seperti PATI Indonesia yang lain?
2. Jika mereka.masuk melalui Imigresen, apakah buktinya?
3. Bilakah tarikh kedua ibubapanya dan beliau sendiri diberi kerakyatan Malaysia?
