A prominent political commentator today has taken Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari to task for claiming to be a Malay when he was born to Chinese parents.
Azizi Safar questioned on whether Zairil was ashamed to admit that he was a Chinese or whether the DAP politician was a confused lad not knowing whether he was a Chinese or a Malay.
“Zairil himself does not even know whether he is a Chinese or a Malay?
“If you say Zairil is a Malay, then Ridhuan Tee is also a Malay. Pity Zairil, he is one very confused bloke.
“Another question to Zairil. Are you ashamed being born a Chinese? Not proud of your own roots?” asked Azizi.
Mohd Ridhuan Tee Abdullah is a lecturer in a public university, a Muslim preacher and writer and was born as Tee Chuan Seng.
Azizi revealed that it was an open secret that Zairil was originally born as Christopher Ross Lim and both his biological father and mother were Chinese.
He disclosed that the late Khir Johari adopted Christopher Ross Lim as his son after he married Christopher’s mother Christine Lim in 1996, and changed his name to Zairil Khir Johari.
“Christopher Lim was 13 at the time. And his name has no ‘Bin’,” said Azizi.

Gerakan offers to help Zairil, Dyana lodge report over photos
GEORGE TOWN, April 20 — Penang Gerakan offered today to help Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari and DAP member Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud to lodge police reports over the distribution of intimate photographs that purportedly resembled them.
Penang Gerakan publicity bureau chief Ooi Zhi Yi said the duo should lodge police reports if the photos were really fake.
“If they feel they have been framed, we would like to urge them to lodge police reports to stop the people doing this and if you don’t stop them, they will keep doing this,” Ooi said in a press conference at Penang Gerakan headquarters today.
He pointed out this was the third time such images and video purportedly of Zairil and Dyana were distributed, but no police reports have been lodged until now.
“If they have problems lodging police report, Penang Gerakan would like to offer to help them lodge police reports,” he said.
Ooi also condemned those behind the distribution of the photos on social media.
“We are against any form of personal attacks and gutter politics. I believe that such political culture should not be encouraged or take place in our community.
“We want our politics to grow in matured manner and not the other way around,” he said.
Ooi said Gerakan members themselves would be condemned if they were found to have distributed such photos.
“We do not condone gutter politics. It is their private lives. Whoever is in the photos, such behaviors should be left alone and not publicised,” he said.
DAP steers clear of ‘Zairil-Dyana’ photo scandal
GEORGE TOWN: DAP is steering clear of the ongoing photo scandal involving Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari and Socialist Youth executive committee member Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud.
State DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow said that Zairil had requested that he be allowed to solve the purported fake photo issue himself, as it was seen as a personal attack involving him.
“He appeared before Secretary General Lim Guan Eng on Tuesday afternoon and he said he will handle the matters by himself.
“This statement was issued to keep the public informed,” he said in a statement today.
DAP allows Zairil to settle ‘fake’ photo issue himself http://dlvr.it/Nx6Yr4
GEORGE TOWN, April 19 — Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari today denied he is the man shown hugging a woman resembling a DAP youth leader, after such pictures emerged online yesterday.
This is the first time he is directly addressing the matter, having previously declined comment about the emergence of another set of photographs and a video of the two dancing.
“No, it’s not me. It is clearly another attempt to malign me with personal attacks. They are fake, and that’s all I have to say,” he said in a message to Malay Mail Online today.
“Clearly, some conductor behind the orchestra,” he added.
Yesterday, DAP Socialist Youth executive committee member Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud similarly rejected the photographs as a politically-motivated attack.
She also said she would not entertain such attacks.
DAP in particular Dyana sofya have to come out and clean it up or else……?
Fifth picture emerges of Opposition couple
PETALING JAYA: A fifth photo of a man and a woman said to resemble two DAP leaders in close proximity has emerged.
This time, the couple is seen looking at a mobile phone with the light from the screen reflected on their faces.
On Tuesday, four pictures of the couple, said to resemble DAP Bukit Bendera MP Zairil Khir Johari and DAP Youth committee member Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud were widely circulated on social media.
Zairil, however, denied that he was the man in the photo and insisted that the photos were “fake”.
“No, it’s not me. It is clearly another attempt to malign me with personal attacks.
“They are fake and that’s all I have to say,” he said in a WhatsApp message on Wednesday.
In the previous four undated photographs, the couple were seated at a table in a restaurant with at least two other people.

Are these really Dyana Sofya and Zairil Khir?
Zairil’s wife is reported to have said that the man with Dyana is her husband!
If they are not, how did they find two people who resemble them so closely? Or is it due to a magnificent piece of photoshopping?

Who are they? Photos of ‘DAP members’ being intimate go viral
GEORGE TOWN: Several photos and a video clip of a couple — the man resembling a DAP member of parliament while the woman bearing a striking likeness to a party member — made its rounds on social media this afternoon.
The man resembles Bukit Bendera member of parliament Zairil Khir Johari while the woman bears an uncanny resemblance to Dyana Sofya, DAP’s candidate in the Teluk Intan by-election in 2014.
One of the four photos show the couple kissing while the other depicting the woman drinking what appeared to be a glass of wine.
It is not known when and where the photos were taken.
This is the third time photos of the two have gone viral.
Zairil did not reply to phone calls and WhatsApp messages sent to him by the New Straits Times.
Dyana, in a Facebook posting this evening, said this was the third personal attack within two months.
“I assume the general elections must be near.
In October 2014, Zairil made headlines when photos of a man, resembling him, being affectionate with a woman, went viral. The woman was said to have resembled Dyana.
Early last month, two video clips emerged, one of a a man being embraced by a woman in a club and the other showing them hugging.

Zairil Khir nafi menari, peluk wanita dalam video
GEORGETOWN, 9 Mac ― Ahli Parlimen Bukit Bendera Zairil Khir Johari menyifatkan dakwaan dirinya menari dengan seorang wanita sebagai mengarut.
Beliau menjawab video 15 saat memaparkan seorang lelaki berkaca mata menari dengan seorang wanita tersebar di media sosial.
“Bukan saya dan ia mengarut, setiap hari pasti ada cerita tentang saya. Tidak pernah berhenti,”” katanya seperti dilaporkan mStar Online.
Dipercayai dalam sebuah kelab malam, lelaki didakwa mirip Zairil dilihat berpelukan.
Video itu juga menunjukkan lelaki berkenaan tidak menolak wanita tersebut apabila dipeluk dan diajak menari.
Bagaimanapun, tiada siasatan akan dilakukan polis kerana ia merupakan video biasa.
“Ia hanya sebuah video yang menunjukkan seseorang menari dengan seorang wanita,” kata Ketua Polis Daerah Georgetown Asisten Komisioner Mior Faridlatrash Wahid memetik laporan sama.
DAP MP Zairil fends off clubbing videos accusation
GEORGE TOWN, March 9 — Amid the uproar against him as the president of Football Association of Penang, DAP’s Zairil Khir Johari is in the limelight again after two video clips allegedly of him dancing with a girl was spread in social media.
The Bukit Bendera MP, who was criticised by football fans for being a poor “leader” for the state’s football team, has denied he was the man shown in the short video clips.
“It’s not me, it’s really nonsense. There are stories about me every day. It’s never ending,” he reportedly told The Star yesterday.
The video clips, both lasting less than 15 seconds each, showed a young man dancing with a woman in a night club.
The first grainy video, taken in a dimly lit night club, showed the back of a long-haired woman in a short dress dancing closely with the bespectacled man.
The second video showed a side view of the couple dancing closely with the woman hugging the man.
The man in the videos was said to resemble Zairil.
