Tun Dr Mahathir has also let me down as my mentor


Malaysiakini letter by M Raken | Aug 7, 08

Comment: I agree 100% with Mr M Raken. I always hope and pray that if Dr M and DSAI had never clash  or could work together, our country (please forgive me for using the word ‘our’) would be in a better or at the best possible place.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has stooped from the level of a statesman when he passed a personal verdict on Anwar Ibrahim that he (Anwar) is guilty of the sodomy charges without any substantial evidence.

It is so embarrassing to see a man so revered and at the pinnacle as a leader and the father of modern Malaysia stoop so low.

A true Muslim will never succumb to the temptation of passing unsubstantiated false judgments on another fellow brother even if it may mean the gain of the whole world.


It is the designated court, whatever it may be, that will pass judgment on the accused. Tun Dr Mahathir has failed to impress me that he is a true Muslim. As a non-Muslim, I am truly ashamed of Tun Dr Mahathir.

Be logical whenever you say something Tun. Your followers, admirers and the people at large are intelligent to a certain extent. Why do you make yourself so cheap by casting aspersions on somebody like Anwar just by hearsay?

Do you think the people will believe such fabricated stories? It is none of your business to make illogical conclusion and pass verdicts on another person. The court will do that job.

God is mightier than Mahathir. I believe age, experience and time would have made Mahathir realise the power of the Unseen Hands that rule the world. Life is like a wheel of fortune.

The suppressed will rise as it is the law of nature. At the end of the day, those who reap shall harvest the effect of the sowed deeds irrespective of their nature. So Tun, why not allow God’s will to prevail?

Tun, you are wonderful person. Allow your magnanimity and your generosity and the divinity in you to prevail over your illusionary fears and predicaments and succumb to the will of God and accept Shakespeare’s advice that ‘Readiness is all’.

Till your last moment of your life, be true to your conscience and the commands of God to think good, to say good and to do good. Time will remember you, Tun.
