In the spirit of the celebration of Hijrah today, we pray for Fourth Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to have a paradigm shift for the betterment of Ummah in the nation, directly, and globally, indirectly.
His development into a demented Statesman is really shameful and in the final analysis, not doing good for the big picture.
Recently in his blog posting ‘Propaganda’, he attacked Datuk Rocky and us for being disloyal and insinuated that we sold out to be propaganda tool for Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak.
It is his words against us whether or not we became Dr Mahathir Disloyalist and were bought over to go after him instead. However, what is certain like his many allegations against Prime Minister Najib and his colleagues, there were no evidence presented by Tun Dr. Mahathir that we sold him out.
Former Attorney General Gani Patail also was deliberately attack for issuing a statement recently about his dismissal was in accordance with proper procedure.
We don’t have to retell the story about our last meeting 10 April 2015, Tun Dr. Mahathir was at all convincing enough about toppling Prime Minister Najib and irresponsible as he actually was, he just wanted the ousting without a full exit and succession plan for he nation.
What is glaring about Tun Dr. Mahathir, he expects every person who had served him before to be continuously loyal to him perpetually regardless all the contradictions he does, what position he takes and even the about turns and he lines he drew but eventually crosses.
This include all the manipulation, exaggeration, lies, slander and even seditious statements the prime minister of Malaysia for 22 years did to demonise as a strategy to topple Prime Minister Najib, openly for the past 18 months.
Disagreement opinion and position on any of these matters tantamount to disloyalty and damnation by him.
It is impossible Tun Dr. Mahathir is on the right side up, the past thirty five years since he became prime minister and tasted the power to rule and command.
Moreover, when the issues that he is bringing forward is lack of incriminating evidence instead of the mixture of facts and some unproven information. Like in the case of 1MDB and how Prime Minister Najib is in the scheme of workings to steal from the corporation. Furthermore, for his own personal gains.
Another good example is Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, who has been convicted guilty for the murder of Mongolian nation Altantuya Sharibuu in November 2006 and the conviction was upheld exhaustively at Federal Court.
The sooner the Fifth UMNO President, who was the leader which championed Malay nationalism for over 22 years realised that what he is doing is further causing the Malays to be fragmented further and weakened the Ummah, the better it is for Islam as a whole in the nation.
Malay Nationalism is about defining the Malays, which is as per the Federal Constitution are Muslim, and the party struggle is to defend the rights and provide betterment for the Malays.
Since taking over the helm of UMNO from Tun Hussein Onn in July 1981, under Tun Dr. Mahathir saw bitter infighting within UMNO several times, UMNO being split in half, UMNO deregistered, splinter parties arisen from disgruntled UMNO members (Semangat 46 and KeAdilan) and now Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.
In short, Tun Dr Mahathir’s hand is in every single move of disuniting and disintegration of the Malay-Muslim.
Like it or not, the Malays are today one of the global leaders of championing the Muslim cause. The Statesman is systematically weakening that.
Hijrah is a good moment to step away from all and come back to the path of righteousness. We offer peace and forgiveness, for this leap of emancipation from the systematic destruction of the Malay Ummah.
Salam Maal Hijrah 1438H.
