The brief history of Lokman Adam

Dato’ Lokman Noor Bin Adam was born on January 1st, 1973, making him 46 years old as of now. Lokman was mostly seen as the controversial UMNO member with unfazed criticism towards the PH (Pakatan Harapan) government.


He was educated in Universiti Tun Abdul Razak with a Master’s in Management, and a Diploma in Islamic Laws and Leadership from Institut Pengajian Ilmu-ilmu Islam. Lokman was interested in politics at the age of 15. Since then, he worked his way up to be the UMNO youth chief.


After disagreeing with and criticising current Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in 1998, he left UMNO to join PKR during the Reformasi era. He was also locked up 8 times while fighting for the release of Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim.


In 1999, he was appointed as the very first Keadilan Johor Youth Chief. Unfortunately, he was sacked in 2004 for reprimanding Ezam Md Nor, the then leader of Keadilan Youth.


He returned to UMNO in 2006 and is currently one of UMNO’s supreme council member.


Lokman’s latest political run as a BN candidate was last August during the by-election in Sg Kandis.  He fought for issues surrounding Islamic institution, Malaysian Royalty, and the Malay community. Unfortunately, he was defeated by PKR candidate Zawawi Ahmad Mughni.


Known for creating heated debates, Lokman Adam is no stranger to controversial issues and he often traded cyber punches.


Last year, Lokman had a heated debate with Khairy Jamairuddin over GST and claimed the latter was unfit to be president, while Khairy said Lokman had the IQ of a carrot.


In October, Lokman alleged that Anwar had yet again sodomised another person, this time an Indonesian student from Singapore. Meanwhile, another old news from 2013 circled around saying Anwar hid millions in an off-shore account.


In the temple riot incident, Lokman made a live video stating the PH government protected the murderer of Muhammad Adib, the fire-fighter who died during the riot.


His most recent outburst involved a protest by UM students when former Prime Minister Najib Razak was giving a speech. He felt outraged by the ‘Najib Clown’ sign, snatched it, and shredded it with his bare hands.
