Rocky, quoting the Star newspaper said:
“According to The Star, someone people in the DAP’s central executive committee want the party’s assemblymen in Johor NOT to wear the Songkok at the opening of the state’s legislative assembly on June 19. The Sultan of Johor is expected to be there.
If the news is true, it’s strange for the DAP to want to do that. It’s mischievous, even, especially given the Johor Sultan’s passion for the songkok .
Sure, the songkok is a Malay headgear. It is also a Malaysian headgear. No?”
The Star’s Chun Wai also thinks the Songkok is a Malay headgear.
Curiously, if you search for “songkok” in Wikipedia you are redirected to the “peci” entry as below:
So, is the songkok.peci Indonesian or Malaysian, or if you want to cut it finer, is it Indonesian muslim or Malay?
