Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj ibniAlmarhum Sultan Abdul Hamid Halim Shah
CH(February 8,1903– December 6, 1990) usually known as "the Tunku" (a princely title in Malaysia), and also called
 Bapa Kemerdekaan
(Father of Independence) or 
(Father of Malaysia), wasChief Minister  of theFederation of Malaya from 1955, and the country's firstPrime Minister from independence in1957. He remained Prime Minister after Sabah,Sarawak , andSingaporejoined in1963 to formMalaysia.
Born in Istana Pelamin, Alor Star ,Kedah, Abdul Rahman was the fourteenth son and twentieth child of Sultan Abdul Hamid Halim Shah,the twenty-fourthSultan of Kedah. His mother,Cik Menjalara,was the Sultan's sixth wife and the daughter of Siamese nobleman,Luang Naraborirak (Kleb), a Thai district officer during the reign of KingRama Vof  Thailand. Of all the Prime Ministers, Tunku had the most interesting story of birth. In 1902, theKeeper of the Rulers Seal was exposed as a man who had misused the trust placed inhim and had sold state land for his own gain. Punishment lay with the Sultan, whoordered death for the Keeper, and decreed that the right thumb of the Keeper’s wife aswell as those of his children should be chopped off as a taint they would carry on for therest of their lives.The Keeper’s wife rushed to Menjalara, then known to be the Sultan’s favourite andimplored her intervention. Menjalara, following her maternal instincts, agreed tointercede. She had an audience with her husband, the Sultan and told him that she was pregnant again, but feared her child might be seriously affected if the punishment on theKeeper and his family were to be carried out.Menjalara was a subtly a clever woman. There is a Malay superstition that a husbandshould do nothing evil during the period of his wife’s pregnancy, otherwise a dark spiritwould enter the child in the womb.Sultan Abdul Hamidwas so elated at the news that his favourite wife was presenting himwith another child, and so anxious that nothing unfortunate should happen that he orderedthe Keeper to prison instead and cancelled the punishment on his family.The truth, however, was that Menjalara was not pregnant at that time. But she conceivedsoon afterwards, and the child born was Abdul Rahman who delights to say when he wasalive that he was “born under a lie”.
