Dr Mahathir's Aidilfitri loyalty test

Bernama reported:

Tycoons, politicians and ordinary Malaysians, young and old, made a bee-line to greet former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at his Aidilfitri open house at his residence here [Seri Kembangan] Wednesday.

Neither the morning heat nor the afternoon rain deterred the visitors who made it a point to stop by his villa at Country Heights.

Among those who visited Dr Mahathir and his wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohamed Ali were Culture, Arts and Heritage Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim and Rural Development Minister Datuk Seri Abdul Aziz Shamsudin.

Corporate captains Ananda Krishnan, Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin Amin and Tan Sri Lee Kim Yew also joined the crowds to tuck in the big spread of traditional Raya cuisine.

Former MCA president Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik and former Selangor menteri besar Datuk Seri Abu Hassan Omar were also there.

Well, at least these blokes have stood out to be counted. I now have a bit more respect for Rais Yatim and Abdul Aziz Shamsudin. Where was once-No-1-supporter Humpty Dumpty? I wonder whether I should hammer Raja Bodek of Pulau Pinang, but my sense of fair play tells me to hold fire until I may be sure he was a former ardent sycophant like Humpty Dumpty?


  1. At best this encourages Dr. M to renew his attack after the hollidays. UMNO general assembly will be interesting. Wonder if he is allowed to speak? If he is not allowed he will call for press conference at the site. Won't be surprise if he rents a hall next door and speak..

  2. Best remembered you did coined up 'Raja Bodek' from Penang. lolx

  3. Is this Raja Bodek refers to KTK ?

    Appreciate confirmation , thanks.

  4. Tun Dr Mahathir is currently being criticised, disgrace, and discredited for voicing the people’s unhappiness and the country’s sovereignty. Yet, the issue raised has not been answered satisfactorily by the Prime Minister.

    In facing this “onslaught”, Tun has written an open letter to all Malaysians dated 27th October, 2006 to explain why he is questioning the Government. Those wishing to read the letter and other open letters from Tun and his office can download from the following address:

    Since the mainstream media have stopped giving Tun opportunity to response, we hope you could help spread this letter to the people. The least would be to spread the web address to enable the people to download and read it.

    Thank you.
