Hanif Omar was one of Tun Razak's two wonder boys, the other being Tun Ghazalie Shafie. Both were fast tracked to leadership positions, where Hanif leapfrogged over many more senior to him to become the first Malaysian IGP with a university degree, while Ghazalie Shafie went on to assume the complementary political policing position as Home Minister.
Tun Razak was mightily impressed by a then young dapper and very erudite Hanif Omar during sessions of the powerful NOC which was set up immediately after May 13, 1969 to rule a divided nation and naturally earmarked what he saw as an extremely bright young man for the police highest post.
I have a lot of respect, or to put it more correctly, I USED to have a lot of respect for Hanif Omar. He stunned me when he made one of the most stupid allegations in Malaysian history, and more lamentable coming from such a respected personality, that communists were involved in the Bersih 3.0 rally.
I kid you not, I was totally gob-smacked by his ridiculous accusation. Had he accused Anwar Ibrahim and PKR of attempting a coup d'état a la the Arab Spring movement, he would have found more willing or sympathetic ears wakakaka, and I'm not joking in this respect.
Tan Sri, if you want to see a real communist, such a creature no longer exists behind every Malaysian
Either Tan Sri has become nyanyuk (senile) or has taken up spinning, to type at the former but very badly at the latter.
