Dr M claims students in UK told off by gov’t for meeting him
Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad claims Malaysian students in the UK were told off by government officials for meeting him during Hari Raya celebrations.
In the latest article on his blog, Mahathir – who was in London to be with family – said that he had performed Aidilfitri prayers at a mosque in Acton where there were many Malaysian students.
However, when he and his wife Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali met them after prayers, the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia chairperson felt something was amiss.
“I found that none of the students asked about the situation in Malaysia, especially on politics.
“They seemed afraid, although friendly.
“I was told later that they had been scolded by the Malaysian government (I wasn’t told by who) for being in the same place as me,” Mahathir claimed.
He said that the students were afraid their scholarships would be withdrawn.
Mahathir shares Hari Raya spirit with Najib, forgives critics
In the spirit of Aidilfitri, former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he has forgiven Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s supporters and media organisations aligned to him.
He said these people or organisation have been slandering him for a long time, but they are forgiven in the spirit of Aidilfitri.
However, Mahathir doesn’t state that he forgives Najib, but wishes him and his family well nonetheless.
“I wish Selamat Hari Raya to Najib and his family as well as their supporters.
“Without being asked, I forgive those who have slandered me all year long, especially TV3, Utusan Malaysia, New Straits Times, Salleh Said Keruak, Tunku (Abdul) Aziz (Tunku Ibrahim), Annuar Musa, and others,” Mahathir wrote on his blog today.
Salleh is the communications and multimedia minister, while Annuar is Umno information chief. Tunku Aziz is a former DAP leader and ardent critic of Mahathir’s.
It is customary among Malays to seek forgiveness during Aidilfitri.
