Tombstone of Dol Said in Naning.

Dol Said or in full Dato' Abdul Said was a 19th-century Malay leader of an area called Naning, which was then part of Malacca on the Malay Peninsula. He opposed taxation by the British's taxation policy in the area and refused to pay it. This was a direct cause of a conflict known as the Naning War.

Dol Said's defiance led the British to send 150 soldiers led by Captain Wyllie to capture Naning in early August 1831. Naning however successfully defended itself-guerrilla style- with aid from other Malay allies, which includes Seri Menanti, Rembau, Sungai Ujong, Johol and Muar. The British realised that Naning could not be easily attacked and requested reinforcement from the Yamtuan Muda Raja Ali in Rembau. Raja Ali agreed to send 600 troops to assist British on the attack of Naning.Later in March 1832, British sent a larger force, consisted of 1200 troops, to defeat Dol Said's force. Colonel Herbert led in this assault against Naning. In the second attack, Naning failed to receive military aids from its neighbours. Such failure along with the presence of a huge British expedition forced Dol Said to retreat to Sri Menanti before surrendering himself, effectively ending the war. British then combined Malacca and Naning. Dol Said was given a home in Malacca. Till today, Dol Said is still known as a hero in Malaysia.[1]

The story about the Naning Wars has not been glorified although the Malays had won the First Naning War and the British were the de facto World Power then.The present leader is called DATO' NANING.[2]
