It seems countries in that part know little of their pre-medieval history. Anyway, I read this on Wikipedia, and would like some more details. It seems, the conversion to Islam was a slow affair with many smaller kings accepting first and that trend proceeding.

    Lol, if you only truly understood your presumption and the subject-matter (i.e. your question). Chola is 13th century (latest) and Malaysia is 20th century (earliest). What is your question, again? – J Asia May 16 '18 at 19:13

    Are you perhaps referring to Mudzaffar Shah I of Kedah? It will be tough to answer without more clues to the people and incidents to which you are referring. – T.E.D. May 16 '18 at 20:40
  • @J Asia Do you have any problem with describing a medieval maharaja or Sultan as an Indian king even though their realm was much smaller than India and the nation of India didn't exist at the time? Do you have any problem with describing King Sancho VI the Wise of Navarre as a Spanish king even thousgh his realm was much smaller than Spain and the nation of Spain didn't exist at the time? If you don't have problems with my examples you shouldn't complain about user2277550's somewhat careless phrasing which is exactly analogous. – MAGolding May 18 '18 at 18:00
