Tunku Abdul Rahman first expelled Mahathir from UMNO for his biadap behaviour and the latter's letter accusing, among many things, Tunku of being too friendly with Chinese.
Tunku then subsequently (after he 'retired' from politics) left his party UMNO together with Hussein Onn, because he could not tolerate Mahathir for his bigoted attitude, policies, governance and where the then-PM was taking UMNO.
Today, Mahathir is in more or less the same boat as Tunku, the man he criticised and made an enemy of.
Is the spirit of Tunku punishing his tormentor?
As I've often heard from friends, "What goes around comes around", an allusion to what we call the consequences of 'karma', or in English, 'Reap what you sow'.
I wonder whether Karma will also give Mahathir what he gave Anwar?
A jail term and public humiliation, yes, to realise no one escapes the auto-consequences of karma. The RCI on the scandalous Forex loss of billions may provide that karma-ish triggering action.
And lest Buddhists are troubled by my post title, here's an extract from Quora to soothe them with the English meaning of that phrase, wakakaka:
Karma can be applied in both positive and negative sense.
The bitch part has nothing to do with the ideology of karma. It's just adding salt to wound or provoking one's deeds and making him understand that he deserved it because of what he has done in the past.
Blending all these together, the phrase "Karma is a bitch" means if you have done something wrong and think nothing's going to happen to you, then wait for it, it will hit you back someday.
