Malays who still believe Dr Mahathir
Dr M’s Malay struggle sways with his needs, says Ku Li

PETALING JAYA: Veteran politician Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has sounded a reminder that Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s struggles for the Malays have swayed according to political necessity.

He acknowledged that Mahathir cares for the Malays and often brings up the issue in their meetings, but there are times his actions are not in line with his rhetoric.

“He always speaks about the Malays, all the time, but there are times he takes a turn, when there is political necessity or suitability,” Razaleigh told FMT on Saturday at the Umno general assembly, when asked to comment on Mahathir’s Malay Proclamation.

Mahathir’s initiative to unite Malay politicians across all parties has received support from a few opposition leaders including PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang who was once the target of Mahathir’s criticisms.

WHILE some netizens have praised Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for his eye-opening revelation of the fact that Malays no longer own much land in the country, others have chastised him for insinuating that the Malays had sold their land at low prices to foreign immigrants (i.e., the Chinese and Indians).

“In (the then) Malaya, there are no restrictions on anyone in land ownership. After becoming rich, a lot of land was bought by the immigrant tribes and their descendants,” penned the two-time former premier in his latest Facebook post.

“Selling land is a source of income for Malays. Land, if not sold will remain forever. But if sold, the money found does not last. Money will run out when spent. So when the land is sold and the money found is spent, the seller of the land will be poorer. Then there is nothing else to be sold apart from the body strength.”
