Hang Jebat was the champion of justice who died a tragic death.
Hang Jebat was unceremoniously killed by Hang Tuah in a duel of
honour that lasted 3 days and 3 nights. He ran amuck after suffering
a fatal wound from Hang Tuah's dagger 'Keris Taming Sari.' In the
name of justice to avenge the Sultan's hasty punishment against
Hang Tuah for a crime he didn't commit. Hang Jebat was accused by
Hang Tuah of 'derhaka' (contumacy). The duel between two of Malacca's
most prominent knights has left apermanent question as to the moral
behind Hang Jebat's aberrant reaction against authority and the
conventions by which Hang Tuah exercised his conduct as a loyal
subject of the Sultan.
