Dato' Ismail Hashim was born in Jerlun, Kedah, in 1933. He passed away in 1996 due to a heart attack. With all due respect to Dato' Ismail Hashim, the naming of the road after him begs the question why the honour went to someone so remotely related to Penang - is there no local personality worthy of that honour? The only other call to fame is Dewan Dato' Ismail Hashim, the school hall at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Sungai Ara. The school is located along Jalan Dato' Ismail Hashim.
