Origin of name

The name Baling can be traced to a series of events detailed in the story of Raja Bersiong (The Fanged King), a popular legend of Kedah, recorded in the Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa. Raja Bersiong was a ruthless vampire-like king with a taste for human blood who preyed on his subjects. His subjects finally rose against him and burned down the palace. When the fanged king fled his palace at the Old Kedah capital in Lembah Bujang, he fled to a place named Merbau and began removing his fangs by twisting them by hand. As a result of the twisting act, Merbau was renamed as Merbau Pulas where pulas in Malay means twisting.

After the king had successfully removed both his fangs, he threw them away to a faraway place. The place where he stand when he throw his fang is known as Baling which mean throw and the place believed to be the site where the fangs landed was named as Siong, which means fang in Malay, one of the village in Baling district.

History

Baling was also the site where the leaders of the Malay Races Liberation Army, the newly formed Malayan Government, and the British met in 1955 to try to end the Malayan Emergency. Tunku Abdul Rahman, a leader of the Malayan government, implored the Communists to give up their arms peacefully by promising that no retaliatory action would be taken against them. The MRLA leader Chin Peng expressed skepticism of a pardon promised by the leader of a nation that had yet to gain its independence (Malaya's independence was gained in two years later in 1957). Chin Peng insisted that the Malayan government and the British endorse the MRLA as a legal Communist Party so that it could run in the forthcoming elections. This was denied, however, and thus no agreement was reached.

The towns that Baling has are Kuala Ketil, Parit Panjang, Tawar, Kuala Pegang, Kupang, Baling and Kota Baling Jaya Batu 42.

One of the small towns in Baling is Parit Panjang. Parit Panjang is situated at the junction of four main roads. The roads are from Kuala Ketil (i.e. from Kulim and Sungai Petani), from Batu Lima, (i.e. from Gurun and Alor Setar),and from Baling Town via Asam Jawa and from Baling via Kuala Pegang. Parit Panjang situated 13 km from Kuala Ketil and 25 km from Sungai Petani. There are six villages in Parit Panjang. The villages are Kg Banggol Berangan, Kg Sungai Tembak, Kg Carok Bakap, Kg Bukit Endoi, Kg Tandop Pisang and Kg Lanai.

In Kampung Pisang, Kupang, there is a religious Islamic school, Sekolah Menengah Agama Yayasan Khairiah. Yayasan Khairiah is one of the biggest religious school in Baling. Now it has about 1 700 students coming from all over Malaysia.

Kuala Ketil akan muncul sebagai bandar baharu

KUALA KETIL, 1 Feb: Dengan terbinanya Kolej Universiti Insaniah (KUIN) kampus Kuala Ketil yang menelan perbelanjaan sekitar RM330 juta pada 2013 nanti, Kuala Ketil mampu untuk muncul sebagai salah sebuah bandar baharu di Kedah tidak lama lagi. Mengulas mengenai perkembangan pembinaan KUIN, Menteri Besar Kedah, Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak berkata, kerja-kerja pembinaan kampus ini mengikut jadual yang telah ditetapkan. Ia juga telah mencapai tahap 10 peratus kemajuan sehingga hari ini. Menurut beliau, dengan terbinanya KUIN nanti, Kuala Ketil akan muncul sebagai sebuah bandar baharu setanding dengan Bangi di Selangor yang mempunyai Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia dan juga seganding dengan Sintok yang mempunyai Universiti Utara Malaysia. Katanya lagi Kerajaan Negeri sentiasa berusaha untuk memberi yang terbaik kepada rakyat negeri Kedah terutamanya dalam bidang pendidikan dan pengetahuan sepertimana yang dilakukan terhadap pembinaan kampus induk KUIN ini.

Sebelum ini pelajar kampus Alor Setar telah menzahirkan rasa tidak puas hati mereka terhadap pihak pengurusan kerana masalah kemudahan asas yang tidak mencukupi bagi menampung pertambahan pelajar di kampus tersebut. KUIN Kuala Ketil juga dijangka akan dapat menyelesaikan pelbagai masalah yang sedang dihadapi oleh pelajar KUIN sepertimana yang disuarakan oleh mereka melalui demonstrasi aman di kampus Alor Setar sebelum ini. Tambah Azizan lagi, para pelajar di kampus baru KUIN tidak akan menghadapi masalah kekurangan sepertimana yang dialami di kampus Alor Setar, kerana kampus induk di Kuala Ketil akan menyediakan segala kelengkapan bagi memenuhi kehendak pelajar.

Kampus Insaniah dibangunkan mengikut jadual
Khamis, 05 Mei 2011 12:27 | Ditulis oleh WADIASSOFI JAAFAR

KUALA KETIL, 5 Mei – Kampus tetap Kolej Universiti Insaniah (KUIN) di Kampung Pantai Chicar, di sini dalam Daerah Baling kini giat dibangunkan mengikut jadual.

Menteri Besar, YAB. Dato’ Seri Ustaz Azizan Abdul Razak berkata, tapak kampus berkenaan berkeluasan 832 ekar dan kawasan kampus yang dibangunkan ialah seluas 360 ekar membabitkan pembinaan bangunan pentadbiran termasuk dewan-dewan kuliah.

“Asrama pula akan didirikan di zon dua dan tiga dalam fasa pertama yang boleh memuatkan kapasiti penuntut seramai sehingga 7,000 orang kerana penggunaan tanah secara berhemat,” ujarnya.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita sempena lawatan ke tapak pembinaan kampus tetap KUIN di sini.

Menurutnya, pembinaan kampus tetap ini dijangka siap sepenuhnya pada tahun 2013 dan mampu menampung seramai 10,000 penuntut.

“Kita turut menerima permintaan seramai lebih 6,000 orang untuk memasuki KUIN dalam pelbagai bidang walaupun kampus tetap di sini belum lagi siap sepenuhnya,” jelasnya.

Menteri Besar memberitahu, Kerajaan Negeri akan memastikan Bina Darulaman Berhad (BDB) membina rumah terlebih dahulu sebelum membina kampus dan asrama KUIN bagi memberi kemudahan kepada penuntut KUIN.

“KUIN juga turut menyediakan fakulti perubatan dan dengan adanya fakulti ini akan dapat melahirkan pakar dalam bidang perubatan,” katanya.

Beliau menjelaskan, Yayasan Islam Negeri Kedah (YINK) diberi tanggungjawab bagi meningkatkan pencapaian penuntut yang menyambung pengajian di Maahad Tahfiz yang melibatkan Bahasa Arab, Usuluddin dan Al-Quran.

“Bagi jurusan hafalan ini, tempat yang bersesuaian serta pensyarah turut disediakan di samping ditanggung sepenuhnya oleh Kerajaan Negeri,” ujarnya.

Tambahnya, KUIN merupakan satu-satunya Institusi Pengajian Tinggi Islam di negeri ini yang menjalankan program Pengajian Islam secara berkembar dengan Universiti Al-Azhar, Mesir.

“Kini, KUIN terus menaikkan imej Kedah dengan menjadi pusat pengajian Islam yang terulung di rantau ini apabila dianggap oleh Universiti Al-Azhar sebagai cawangannya di Asia Tenggara,” katanya.

Hal ini, jelasnya, menarik lebih ramai penuntut asing untuk menyambung pengajian di sini seperti dari Thailand, Indonesia, Singapura, Brunei, Republik Rakyat China, Kemboja dan Iraq.

Turut hadir ialah Ahli-Ahli Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri, Ahli-Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri, Pengerusi Bina Darulaman Berhad, Dato’ Paduka Haji Mohd Saad Endut, Rektor KUIN, Profesor Dato’ Wira Dr. Jamil Osman dan Pegawai Daerah Baling, Tuan Haji Ahmad Fisol Haji Md Nor.
