Mohd Ali was asked to comment on whether the state had any intention of retracting the award following protest from several quarters including the issue being raised in Parliament.

“No, there is no intention of retracting the award. How can you give something to a person and later ask it back.

“That’s called being a buruk siku (a Malay idiom to describe one who has given something but later asks for its return),” he said.

He also defended the state’s decision to confer a Datukship on the actor, saying that he (Shah Rukh) had helped promote Malacca to an international audience through the film One 2 Ka 4 and the song Don on one of his CDs.

"If the state wanted to get this sort of publicity on CNN, it would have to pay millions" he said, adding that the move to confer the award on the actor would prompt him to shoot more films here.

I don't know why people are so brothered about SRK being a deserving awardee. Imagine one of us getting the title of "Sir" and we have nothing to do with UK but have contribution in some way or the other.

In short, congrats Datuk Shah Rukh Khan and good luck!

Think about all the hardwork other people put and never got anything for it in this country.
It took Nicol Davids like forever to get a Datuk-ship...

We both know the answer to this: corrupt government = no recognition to the right people.

I am with you with your statements but again it's none of our business anyway. It's done anyway so live with it.

Keep up the good spirit!

Dont say Nicol David. Even our forefathers who fought for the country's independence and against the communist and currently serving in the Armed Forces and Police Force are still considered pendatang.
No proper recognition and no proper rights and they still call us pendatang.
Besides what about entrapment, Alias, and all the documentaries on and about Malaysia, should everyone involved get a datukship?
Stupid political propaganda making the countrymen look like fools. I dont see England or Singapore doing something stupid like this!
Go figure I think Starship Troopers has the best ideology. "Service guarantees bumiputera-ship"

Amrit you are an idiot....but good save mate hahaha
