The word 'keling' in Kamus Dewan is permissible, the High Court ruled today.
It accordingly dismissed an appeal by the
Selangor and Federal Territory Angkatan Pelopor Islam Muslim (Apim)
against the decision made by Senior Assistant Registrar Nik Isfahanie
Tasnim Wan Abdul Rahman on Dec 29, 2003 which struck out a civil suit
over the use of the word.

One can only sympathise with playwright Mr. Vadi PVSS that the reaction to his forthcoming play titled "Shanmugam - The Keling Kia Trilogy" has, at this preliminary stage, been hostile -- even though it is confined to a very small section."

Recently there has been a lot of brou-ha-ha over the inclusion of the word "keling" in the Kamus Dewan, published by the Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka (DBP). The Angkatan Pelopor Indian Muslim Selangor dan Wilayah Perseketuan (Apim) is taking legal action against the DBP for publishing the said word in its latest edition of the Kamus Dewan. The group's main reason for doing so is because the particular word concerned is derogatory to Malaysians of Indian origin. They therefore want the word to be struck off from the dictionary."

Medan, North Sumatra, is known for its sharp racial distinctions between native Batak, Chinese, Indian and Malay ethnic groups.

IN polite terms, it was deja vu. In reality, it was pure racist slur.
It was a case of “oops, he did it again” when Jerai MP Datuk Badruddin Amiruddin referred to the Malaysian Indians as keling last Tuesday.
Records showed that he uttered the derogatory word in the same august house on April 21, 1998. "
