admiral

In a era before ketuanan, this Indian, K. Thanabalasingham served under Tunku, Tun Razak and Hussein Onn (through The Confrontation with Indonesia and May 13th) as the helmsman of the Malaysian Navy. He came out recently with other non-malay ex-servicemen to challenge the notion that non-malays (kaum Pendatang!) were somehow less loyal to the nation.
