I am honoured to be mentioned by Tun Mahathir in his latest book entitled ‘Capturing Hope’.

I was educated from an early age to always respect all religions and people of different races.

My family and I have also made contributions to people of all races and religions, and will continue to assist in the welfare of all races.

But I am also a Malay and have not forgotten my duty to defend Islam. That is why I opposed the Rome Statute and ICERD.

With regard to the Rome Statute and ICERD issues, not only was Tun Mahathir dishonest to the Conference of Rulers, but Tun was also not completely honest to the people. Things done in a hurry at that time would’ve threatened the well-being of the people and affected the privileged rights of the Malays.

By attacking the royal institution, Tun will not be able to solve national problems that were created by Tun yourself, including racial divide and assimilation issues.

Another betrayal to the people was when the promises made to the people were not fulfilled.

Whatever it is, I pray Tun will live a long life, always respect all races in Malaysia and upholds the Federal Constitution. I will see you soon, Tun.
