TTF: 1n 1998, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, then premier, told a press conference that Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim was unfit to be in government or succeed him as Prime Minister. According to the man who destroyed UMNO a decade earlier, his deputy had gotten drivers to chauffeur women to wherever he (Anwar) was and had even masturbated other men.
“He was masturbating this man…” – Dr Mahathir Mohamad
The video clearly shows a very ‘disturbed’ Mahathir telling reporters that Anwar’s behaviour could never be condoned, that it would be difficult to tell the world the kind of stuff his deputy was up to. To impress upon newsmen that the evidence was overwhelming, Mahathir made it a point to note that he personally interviewed men his deputy had sodomised and women the latter had sex with.
Well, has Mahathir interviewed Mat Sabu?
Yesterday, two audio recordings waded their way into the cyber-sphere moments before a group claiming to be Amanah members held a press-conference. According to the group, the male sounding voice in those recordings was that of Mat Sabu, a man who claims to be more Islamic than PAS president Dato’ Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.
The clips were erotic, suggesting that the couple featured had performed zina at some point or the other. Question is, are we to expect yet another 1998-styled announcement anytime soon, or is Mahathir going to perform another U-Turn, this time, telling us that a man’s bedroom ventures should be of no concern to us?
In 1998, we were told that Anwar was morally unfit to lead the country. Does Mahathir feel any differently about Mat Sabu, who some quarters have since begun referring to as Mat G-String?
Let’s face it – the opposition pact is led by a dirty bunch of sex-addicts who’re habitual zina-offenders. Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was recently embroiled in a non-halal divorce dispute involving Nika Gee, the non-Muslim wife of a prominent Chinese lawyer. Mahathir himself has biennial romps all the way in the Argentines with busty South American babes his wife seems to know about.
And let us not forget Nurul Izzah Anwar and her romantic escapades with Mohamad Ezam Mohd Nor. Many a time, these lovebirds hole themselves up in some corner or other in Jakarta on the pretext of attending conferences. And if that still hasn’t gotten your eyes rolling, try the one about Lim Kit Siang and the trysts he’s rumoured to be having with Mummy Foo, his decade-old love interest.
Still feel that the Mahathir-led opposition-pact has the moral compass to lead Malaysia?
KUALA SELANGOR: The Muslim community must maintain good morals during the election period and carry out their responsibility to vote for leaders are knowledgeable, have integrity and have the ability to make the country prosper.
That was the gist of the last Friday sermon at all mosques across Selangor today, before the 14th General Election (GE14).
Imam Masjid Darussalam, Kampung Bukit Kuching, Jeram, Mohamad Saleh Siran while reading the sermon titled The Responsibility of Choosing the Leader said it was compulsory for the people to vote on May 9 to determine the future of the country for the next five years.
He said choosing a leader was an obligation in Islam which needed to be fulfilled and a responsibility entrusted by Allah.
“Therefore, we are responsible for choosing the best leaders who will bring good to the religion, the community, the country and Muslims as a whole,” he said.
Also present, were BN candidate for the Kuala Selangor parliamentary seat, who is also UMNO Supreme Council member, Datuk Seri Irmohizam Ibrahim, who performed Friday prayers with some 200 locals.
Mohamad Saleh said to find a good leader, one must first choose the leader.
“The Quran teaches us about the characteristics of good leaders including the one who can uphold the religion and is able to administer the world based on Islamic principles.
“A good leader must be knowledgeable, physically fit and must possess high integrity,” he said.
Islam strongly emphasises morality even against enemies in war, what more during competition in a democratic election.
“The democratic system was established so that people can compete in harmony, without the need to use their energy and weapons.
“They have the opportunity to argue and come up with their own manifesto,” he said.
Thus, people need to be courteous during campaigning and do not let ourselves be consumed by hate towards each other.
“Do not cheat or slander, make provocative remarks, use foul language, offend people during campaigning.
“This strategy is contradicts with characteristics of a leader. Do not take this lightly, the weight of sin is hard to bear,” he said.
