Hang Tuah - Malay or Chinese Warrior?

A blog reader sent in this:-
Why was Hang Tuah taken off the history text books since 1999??

Way back in 1987, a Malay (from the old school) told me of his suspicion that Hang Tuah was Chinese. Notice that Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat and Hang Lekiu carry the same surname, Hang? Malays don't have surnames. Hang Tuah is the eldest so 'tuah' which means big or elder in some Chinese dialects, e.g. Hokkien. Further, Hang Tuah brought a Chinese princess to marry the Sultan of Malacca. Her name? Hang Li Po. One inaccuracy in the evidence cited below. The relevant Chinese emperor is from the Ming Dynasty not Qing (or Ching). Even today, the Agong wears yellow and has a yellow umbrella on ceremonial occasion. They were bestowed by the Ming Emperor.

Study about HANG TUAH is MISSING ?????
"The Truth Reveal (with evidence)"
Local research project to compliment the history studies that we undertaken in our secondary school. In June 1998, the government of Malaysia had hired a team of experts The objective of the research is simply:-
1. To find prove and evident that show the Malays are the origins of Malaysia and they are the first race and religion that lands their foot in Malaysia .
2. To further strengthen their claims, first they need to find the grave yard of the Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat, Hang Lekiu and show the existant of their pioneer.
3. The Batu Bersurat in Terengganu, reveals that the islamic religion has landed in Malaysia for a hundred years ago which further strengthen their claims! That is why, we are taught with (history of Malaysia )!!!!

BEWARE & OPEN YOUR EYES!!! go ask your brother, sister, niece, newphew and etc. etc, since the year 1999 (if i'm not mistaken) or year 2000, do they study about HANG TUAH anymore???????? Why is that popular subject GONE????? Missing in action??????? Or Evidence reveals something different that causes the government to stop the syllabus and HIDE the TRUTH????????

Here are the Evidences of the findings by the team of scientists, archaeologist, historian and other technical staff from the United State, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Yemen & Russia.

The evidence are they finally found the grave yard of Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat and etc..., their skeleton had been analise and samples of DNA had been taken with the results show Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat, Hang Lekiu and mates, they are not Malay!!!!!! They are CHINESE! (islamic) from China!!! and why are they here in Malacca????? Because they are in a misison to protect the MALAY from the potential attack of SIAM ( Thailand )!!! So Hang Tuah is not malay hero!!! they are the protector of the useless and ungrateful Parameswara (who is from INDONESIA ) landed in Malacca and claim the land belongs to him!! The Hang Tuah bunch of people are all from China, they are being assign to Malacca because Parameswara request the Ching Dynasty Emporer for protection!!! This is why the Hang Tuah series of history is MISSING from the SEJARAH!!!!

If you want the black and white evidence of the truth reveals please write to: The Federal Association of Arc & Research of Michigan, USA


Can anyone verify/clarify on the part where it has been taken off the history textbooks? The above statements could be totally or factually wrong. Any historians out there?

Best part is it mentioned that they found Hang Tuah's grave .... I don't think it was that hard as I found it too together with many other tourists while having an excursion in Malacca there ...... means to say I'm part of history too...haha!

Reading: Hang Tuah's Origin - Danielctw (good assessment/study of the same topic)
Reading: Hang Tuah Bukan Berbangsa Melayu - UMNO Reform
Reading: Parameswara didn't convert, Hang Tuah not Chinese - Malaysiakini

I won't deny you have a point. But you missed the fact that Hang Li Po was given the title of 'Hang' AFTER she arrived in Malacca. So Hang Tuah & co. may have got the title after saving Tun Perak. When the facts were recorded, the still inserted the 'Hang' just like we use Baginda for the sultans even before they became a sultan.

Hi dear Johnny, thank you for bringing this up. Hang Tuah IS OBVIOUSLY a Chinese. MALAYS should learn how to accept the truth. Hang Tuah is a Muslim but a CHINESE. My father told me that when he was in highschool back in those old days, THE HISTORY TEXTBOOK MENTIONED that HANG TUAH is a CHINESE. Of course this is a sensitive issue. THE MAIN HERO is a Chinese but not a Malay. Then the authority REMOVED him from the text book. End of the story. They simply do not want the Malays look like weaklings. Pity them. So pathetic.

to say that chinese first landed in Malaysia is scientifically wrong. DNA studies has shown since the 90s that the Malays are an ancient race before the chinese race as we know it even existed, the Malays are also known as austronesians or sumerians. Please refer to the findings of Dr. Stephen Oppenheimer from his thesis book 'Eden in the East' or the malay civilization book published under the malay history association, a collective research efforts done by university of hawaii, oppenheimer and many others. the sumerians / austronesians / malays were the people of the sea that was once an advanced civilization and brought the technology of rice domestication, copper weilding, animal domestication as well as water irrigation to the civilizations of ancient egyptian and babylonians post 3rd great flood due to the melting of ice caps. this is the race that is known today as malays, indonesians, philipinos,hawaiians, madagascans, polynesians etc... and the sundaland where these people are from encompasses from taiwan to the fiji island before the continent drowned, hence the aboroginies of taiwan are also malays. so it is not that the malays are not the original people of malaysia, it is that malaysia/indonesia was part of a malay civilization that was once known as the (drowned) continent of sunda (sundaland)and malaysia / indonesia are only divided politically some 57-60 years ago, which before that the people are free to move from one island to another island without using passports or visa as like today. please google stephen oppenheimer or eden in the east that theorizes the drowned city of atlantis could be in this region, and please support your writing with more factual (actual) details than just rumours on the research done by univ. of michigan when the staffs have not even heard of such research (the university of michigan in Ann Arbor MI where i once lived). oppenheimer thesis also proved that rice cultivation was done in what is now known as malaysia some 6,000 years ago, 1,000 years before the carbon dna samples of artifacts founded in china. there are various researchers are studying this topic now from all around the globe, so before you get your facts wrong about the malays are not the original malaysians, please find out who the champa malays are, as they are one of the oldest malays in this land. stop twisting the facts. Hang Tuah's subject is dropped because of the sensitivities of the chinese with malay history and the racial sentiments it created, and the sensitivities of the keris. now the chinese even claim that batik is a chinese art as it is founded in south of china, when scientists today proven that those original people of the south of china / taiwan are infact the austronesians of race (malays). but then again, in chinese history of china, it is written all the neighboring countries are not as advanced as them as they were all barbarics, and only the chinese founded or glorified everything in their records, when these are the neighbors that brought the technology to them in the first place, thanks to the high and mighty kings of the dynasties who were demi-gods at that time. thank you.

Have you not heard of 4 greatest invention by the chinese. It has been recognize by the world. Perhaps you are blind or refuse to accept facts. Refer to this

The aborigines you mentioned, are not MALAY. Malay is a term for your race. If you tell the thais or phlippinos that they are malay, you would be ended on the street. If you are not aware how great the chinese is, take a trip to China NOW, you will see how backwards Malaysia. Visit the Guang Zhou Trade fair, you be amaze the size of it is 10 times your pathetic KLIA.

who cares about who the first to land, i mean does the native american rules america or the abroginies rules australia.
even columbus is really not the first one who had found the newland.
there are ancient writings about the 'newfoundland' which is now america. and yet the oldest mummy founded in china is not chinese directly..

Well what I can say is if this world only have 1 race, same face, same height, no religion. This world is a peaceful world. Think of what makes this world fighting?
Plus if god forgets to create human with feeling of jealous, envy and greedy we will be living happily and peacefully.

Let's us sing this song:
Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

This is so funny. Why bother fighting over dead people. Who care what race they are? Our prime minister came up with a very intelligent idea which is everybody is off the same race. Satu Malaysia maa

Ladies and gentlemen.. the history is, who first... which race strongest.. whoes research... What happen and on going in Malaysia is the crony sucking bleed out from Malaysian resources and not that's all. Dividing Malaysian by protecting the majority by getting their votes.
If cronies people cannot see the lights and connectivities of all things around, well all they see is money,shares.. and maybe glamour and power in hand.
Everywhere i go in Malaysia.. there is a lot of white elehants sitting gigantically useless and I found no use of it to anyone except the "contracts" issuance to somebody of building it. By the way, that somebody will subcontract it out somebody else to build it. All it left is 50% of the original budget for the projects.
Imagining it by converting the "contracts' resources into building LRT/high speed train to most of cities and town. And! not to mention Sarawak and Sabah. What it would be wonderful to see that happening. People are connected. All malaysian are connected. What it would be wonderful if TM can do a better job by get people connected if not by transport infrastructure. That dream! to crony is a nightmare.
Vote is in your hand. Vote wisely for the betterment of the country not your pocket.

Menurut Andaya (2002), Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat dan Hang Kasturi adalah pemimpin ulung kaum Orang Asli. Kekuasaan Orang Asli dalam pemerintahan Melaka serta kerajaan-kerajaan melayu yang lain mengalami kemerosotan dengan kematian ketiga-tiga tokoh ini. Pendapat ini dipetik dari Pagan Races of the Malay Peninsula, Macmillan, London 1906 karangan Skeat, W.William and C.O. Blagden.

Andaya juga memetik pendapat Juli Edo, seorang ahli antropologi dari etnik Semai yang mengatakan bahawa Hang Tuah dan Hang Jebat adalah Orang Asli. Hang Tuah dan keluarganya berpindah ke Hulu Perak selepas kematian Hang Jebat.

Menurut Yayan Indriatmoko (2003), Hang Tuah berketurunan Orang Laut. Orang Asli melibatkan diri secara aktif dalam sosioekonomi Tanah Melayu pada zaman dulu.

Let's not fight over who Hang Tuah really was. We would focus on current issue and make Malaysia a better place for all to live in. I'm bugis, Javanese, Chinese, Malay n Arabic mixed but the best of all is that I am a Malaysian.
