Thuraisingham (28 August 1898- 30 March 1979) was the first local Member (Minister) for Education in the Communities Liaison Committee formed to build communal fraternity in British-ruled Malaya, from 1951-1955. He is also the first Asian chairman of the Selangor Turf Club. Better known by his last two names, Clough Thuraisingham's passion to do the best for Malaya was matched only by his love of horse racing and his large American car, a red Chevrolet Impala. He was also popularly known in the horse racing fraternity as "The Dato." His dream was to see a united Malaya and stood for racial equality. Thuraisingham of Sri Lankan Tamil origin, was born in Taiping (Perak) on 28 August 1898. He was the second son and child among five children of Kasinathar and Meenachi Clough. After graduating on 19 December 1922 with a BA degree in Law & Political Economy at Cambridge University, and in order to practice law, Thuraisingham studied and did his pupillage at Middle Temple in the Inns of Court in London and became a Barrister-at-Law in 1924.
