It seems that the Puteri UMNO youth wing has a bone to pick with the party’s leadership.
In a video that’s making waves online, Puteri UMNO Chief Datuk Zahida Zarik Khan made a ballsy speech calling for the Prime Minister and UMNO Vice President Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob to dissolve parliament to make way for the next general election (GE15).
The 26-second clip had the chief addressing a hall full of Puteri UMNO members who appeared to have their spirits erected by her fiery sermon before an awkward silence ensued at the end.
Ketua Puteri UMNO legit just said Puteri is more manly than man and I quote verbatim— Ahmad Naquiddin (@naque1may) March 17, 2022
“Our balls is bigger than yours”.
Is this what it has come to 🤣🤣🤣 I skek pic.twitter.com/BRsopPzskW
Fresh off the party’s victory during the Johor state election, Zahida or “Kak Ida” as she calls herself, explained that if they can regain their strength and position there then they can do the same across the nation.
Which is why, before this tonic’s potency goes limp, I answer the call made by (our) deputy president (Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan) in his inaugural address yesterday for the government led by our vice president, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, in taking steps to expedite the dissolution of the parliament to enable GE15 to be held.Puteri Umno Chief Datuk Zahida Zarik Khan via Umno Online
In her speech, Kak Ida said that they were ready to accelerate to the finish, achieve absolute victory and redeem the dignity they lost during GE14.
Don’t dampen or spirits, we want to continue sprinting. Don’t say that we are young women, weak princesses. In fact, we can be more masculine than some males. Our balls can be bigger than yours.Puteri Umno Chief Datuk Zahida Zarik Khan via Umno Online
She also shared that a friend had told her that, if there were those within the party who are afraid to face their opposition, then it was best to just remove their manhoods.
A friend said if anyone is scared to face other parties that insult us this time, it’s better to just cut their manhood and toss it away into the crocodile park in Johor.Puteri Umno Chief Datuk Zahida Zarik Khan via Umno Online

Very crude. Not very nice. And yes, men can experience sexual harassment too. https://t.co/TibqBgzaUf— Hannah Yeoh (@hannahyeoh) March 17, 2022
However, there were those who stepped up to say that there was nothing wrong with women being brazen.
No idea what she was referencing, but the QTs and replies saying that women should be feminine, demure, and "lemah lembut" are nonsense.— Boo Su-Lyn (@boosulyn) March 18, 2022
This is 2022.
Women can say whatever they want. Men don't get policed for their speech.
And what she said isn't sexual harassment either. https://t.co/2ZkmOTlkpb
Meanwhile, some took the opportunity to just make jokes about the thing instead.

If one ball is much bigger than the other, please see a doctor. https://t.co/ErZexPIfM5
