22 JAN 2010 - Sultan Mahmud Iskandar Al-Haj ibni Ismail Al-Khalidi mangkat

ISKANDAR OF JOHOR
-
Sultan Mahmud Iskandar Al-Haj ibni Ismail Al-Khalidi (8 April 1932 - 22 January 2010) was the eighth Yang di-Pertuan Agong (roughly equivalent to King) of Malaysia, from 26 April 1984 to 25 April 1989. He succeeded his father, Sultan Ismail, to become the 24th Sultan of Johor upon the former's demise in 1981.
-
Like his grandfather Sultan Ibrahim, Sultan Iskandar's independent mindset has resulted in strained relations with the Malaysian federal government on numerous occasions. This was more so during his days as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, whereby a number of notable public incidences involved Sultan Iskandar. Nevertheless, Sultan Iskandar was reputed to show great concern to his subjects, and was held in high esteem by many of his subjects–particularly the Malays and Orang Aslis.
-
Sultan Iskandar is reputed for being a staunch disciplinarian and willingness to occasionally voice out personal opinions in governmental issues. On the personal side, subjects who have personally approached the Sultan in recent years have described him as a person with a warm and generous personality. However, past critics had also argued that Sultan Iskandar was a person with a turbulent temper. These claims were made by citing records of past notorious incidents, which includes an experience of being disinherited from being the Tunku Mahkota (or Crown Prince in English) by his father, in 1961, as well as a series of alleged criminal acts occurring between the 1970s and the 1990s which were published in the press and provoked widespread moral outrage within the Malaysian public.
-
During his younger days as a prince, Tunku Iskandar was commonly known by his first name, "Mahmud" or his full name "Mahmud Iskandar". He has since largely discontinued the use of his first name after he became Sultan in 1981, although some people still refer to him by his full name on an occasional basis.
