Keywords:Lembaga Malaya, Raja Muda , Selangor Resident, Newspaper, Malaya
This article focused on the succession of Raja Muda Selangor from the perspective of Lembaga Malaya, a media outlet that appears outspoken and aware of the current situation at the turn of the 20th century. This issue is closely related to the British intervention policy of appointing Residents in all Malayan states, including Selangor. Regarding this matter, Lembaga Malaya was urged to alert the Malay community, particularly its leaders, to fight for the rights of the Malay people, which were violated by the British, who lacked knowledge of Malay customs, particularly in terms of royal appointment customs. The appointment of Raja Muda Selangor will be discussed in chronological order, along with the article in Lembaga Malaya newspapers that voiced opposition to the appointment. Documents and secondary sources were also utilised in order to provide support for the arguments. These issues will be discussed using a chronological approach for the early 20th century in Selangor. This paper will also provide a brief overview of Lembaga Malaya in order to demonstrate the precise connection between Lembaga Malaya and the Raja Muda Selangor successions. This article will conclude with a narrative history and analysis based on the perspective expressed in Lembaga Malaya.
