    Hello, Dr.Mahathir

    I hope this Mail reaches you, and would consider it.

    Right now i know you are busy with Restructuring and Saving the Nation but i hope you could help some of the youths/adults in this nation to legalize a Sport called Airsoft. We have a huge community but right now, we are pretty scattered because there is no legality on the sport but would really love to see it come true.

    In case your wondering, Airsoft is a International Extreme Sport, quite popular all over the world like US, Taiwan,HongKong,Korea,Japan,Thailand, even Indonesia has already begun promoting the Sport.(Very similar to paintball)

    The Sport Uses Replica like firearms (Toy guns or BBs in Malaysia’s Point of View) and plastic biodegradable pellets, its pellets hurts no more than a flick of a finger and perfectly safe. (Again Very similar to paintball)

    As of now people would think why would we even would bother legalize this kind of stuff. To be honest in my view, when i see other countries have this kind of sport i awe in envy and wished Malaysia could do the same to promote it, Because it beats staying at home on a Saturday or Sunday playing computer games when we could go out and have social and recreational outdoor sport,Building Teamwork and Ties.

    Sure we have football, Badminton, Malaysia is crazy about those, but There are groups craving for some action and adrenaline.

    So lets say if we legalize the sport, Hurray!! How do we control the Airsoft so people dont abuse them.(Sadly eventually there will always be a person that will find some funny way to do it)

    So i was thinking, The Airsoft guns and Paintball Markers are currently set together under the firearms law, I would like to suggest we seperate it and create a specific law like how other countries do it. Because is a sports tool after all so maybe we could Example: Licenses or Membership cards holders and ID cards presented are only be able to purchase and will be recorded down under details,under membership records?

    Im sure we as Malaysians can find a common ground especially if the Association is working with the PDRM to enforce the rules and promote this sport to bring in Malaysia a sport where international communities could come and partake as well.

    Thank you for your time.

    Assalamualaikum Y.A.B Tun.

    Saya Syamir Marwan mendoakan Tun dan keluarga berada dalam keadaan sihat walafiat dan sentiasa dirahmati Allah S.W.T. Saya ingin menyampaikan rasa resah dan gulana saya tentang pembekuan pengambilan jawatan perkhidmatan awam. Saya telah dimaklumkan melalui telefon sebelum Pilihan Raya dan beberapa orang lagi akan ditawarkan Jawatan Penguasa Kastam (lantikan tetap). Khusus latihan sepatutnya dijangka bermula pada Jun atau July pada tahun ini. Berita ini amat mengembirakan saya dan keluarga kerana ia mengambarkan masa hadapan saya yang cerah, berita ini juga telah diketahui oleh beberapa orang kawan saya dan juga beberapa orang kampung yang telah memberi tahniah kepada saya. Oleh itu saya berharap pentadbiran dibawah Pakatan Harapan akan memberi sinar semula kepada saya dan tidak menghampakan harapan untuk berkhidmat didalam sektor kerajaan. Saya berharap pentadbiran dibawah PH dibawah kepimpinan Tun tidak menghampakan harapan saya dan orang-orang yang senasib dengan saya.

    Yang Benar

    Aduan/Cadangan :
    Assalamualaikum & Salam Sejahtera,

    Saya merupakan salah seorang anggota PKR yang berdaftar dengan pertubuhan ini. Saya amat tertarik dengan manifesto yang Tun M telah buat dimana akan melucutkan jawatan ketua jabatan yang mengamalkan penyalahgunaan kuasa. Terdapat beberapa cadangan yang ingin saya ketengahkan agar dipertimbangkan kerana cadangan ini saya ajukan beedasarkan pengalaman dan aduan yang mana pendapat ia sangat membazir Wang rakyat amnya.

    1) mohon pembubaran Suruhanjaya Integriti Agensi Penguatkuasaan (EAIC). Hal ini kerana, setiap agensi yang ditubuhkan termasuk kementerian telah diwujudkan unit Integriti sendiri dalam jabatan mereka. Tambahan pula, EAIC hanya menyiasat Integriti penjawat yang melakukan aktiviti salahguna Integriti seperti polis/jpj dan 20 agensi lain. Perkara ini hakikatnya boleh disiasat sendiri oleh unit Integriti sendiri. Selain itu, EAIC ini akan membelanjakan peruntukan rakyat yang banyak seperti pembayaran gaji kakitangan mereka&check in hotel mahal sekiranya mengadakan kerja luar.

    2) lucutkan jawatan ketua jabatan Majlis Sukan Wilayah Persekutuan (MSWP), nama didedahkan Datuk Mohd Razlan atas sebab penyalahgunaan kuasa Perbelanjaan atas tujuan politik semata-mata. Beliau adalah Ketua Pemuda Umno Wilayah Persekutuan bahagian Seputeh. Selain itu, peruntukan kerajaan disalurkan begitu banyak kepada agensi ini.

    Saya harap cadangan diambil tindakan oleh kerajaan pemerintahan PH Dan mohon pihak HQ tidak mendedahkan butir peribadi saya kerana ia sulit.

    Sekian, terima kasih.

    Assalamualaikum Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    Nama saya ialah Ramzan dan saya seorang pelajar di Taylor’s University. Saya sedang belajar dalam jurusan Software Engineering. Saya memohon kepada Tun tolong pertimbangkan untuk mansuhkan subjek-subjek berkaitan Mata Pelajaran Pengajian Umum (MPU) kepada pelajar-pelajar Malaysia yang menuntut di universiti kerana pada pendapat saya, ia umpama saya sedang belajar semula subjek-subjek yang pernah diajar di peringkat sekolah menengah. Malah, subjek-subjek berkaitan dengan MPU ini mengalihkan perhatian atau tidak membenarkan pelajar-pelajar memberi perhatian sepenuhnya untuk menyiapkan tugasan-tugasan dalam bidang yang dipelajari contohnya seperti bidang yang saya pelajari iaitu “Software Engineering” yang mana fokusnya sepatutnya lebih tertumpu untuk menyiapkan tugasan-tugasan yang berkaitan dengan bidang pembelajaran komputer.

    Sekian, terima kasih.

    Dear Tun,
    Firstly, let me introduce myself. My name is Sarikha, also known as Prema. I was delighted to hear that you would be assuming the role of the Education Minister. However, my happiness was short lived. I had no doubt in my mind that you will revitalise our ailing Education System. I am a single mother. I have enrolled my daughter in a non profit International School for Year 1 in 2020. When I heard the good news, I was so happy at the prospect that I could now possibly send her to a government school, as I was confident that it was going to be made great under yourself. Please dont get me wrong, I went to a government school myself and pride myself with being the only non malay student in my Kesusasteraan Melayu class then. People thought I was crazy giving up Science stream to do Sastera after getting Grade 1. So I am a strong believer that Bahasa Melayu should be the priority at all cost and that English is the language to move forward. However, the system is all wrong.

    You may wonder what I know about it. I have been giving tuition classes since my college days to date. I teach students from government school , private school as well as International school. I know the difference. I see the difference. I understand the issues. I understand the issues faced by the students from the lower income families. I understand why they become demotivated.

    I, for one want to see our nation great again. It shouldn’t end with just great results at the polls. Let this be your legacy Tun. Make education great again. I hope you will spearhead this effort or at the very least, put someone capable of this transformation. I would be very happy to help out voluntarily for the sake of my child and nation.

    I have done my part during the election as PACA in Lembah Pantai and yes we got every single Borang 14. I would now love to be part of another beautiful transformation.

    Thank you Tun for everything.
    God bless!

    Hi, Good day, Tun.

    If Tun is too tired or willing to hear a voice from Sarawak, Kindly click on the following link and open up Letter to PM. ^^

    Nonagenarian Tun Dr. Mahathir….. STILL a force to be reckoned

    Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad, born on 10 July 1925, 93 years young this year is a Doctor, a Politician, a Maverick and a Magician…… as the new Malaysia yearns him to be. His political career has spanned over seven decades beginning with a newly formed UMNO in 1946 and as the fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia from 1981 to 2003. The brainchild of Putrajaya, Galeria Sri Perdana and KLIA, he was also instrumental in changing the landscape of Kuala Lumpur by adding beautiful features like the Twin Towers and Menara KL. This ‘Tiger of Asia’ rightfully earned the sobriquet of ‘Bapa Pemodenan’ or Father of Modernization.

    ‘Mahathir’ in Sanskrit means Great Warrior. Between feelings of adulation and abhorrence, 31.9 million Malaysians just can’t be indifferent towards him. From being revered while he was in office, to being shunned during his retirement, and finally being mocked at by his critics when he decided to right all his wrongs, you can’t deny it takes a heart, mind and body of steel to do what Tun Mahathir has achieved at his age, proving that age is just a number and it is a case of mind over matter. As per WHO’s data published in 2015, life expectancy in Malaysia is 75 years, male being 72.7 and female 77.3. Living through five generations in his lifetime, Tun Mahathir has entered the club of nonagenarians with great fervour, energy and a nimbleness of both body and mind, all characteristics supposedly unprecedented for the ‘Oldest Old’ but definitely a privilege for a select few.

    Tun M’s critics scoffed and denounced his revitalized movement towards reformation of our beloved country. Many said that it was common sense that no country in the world would want a leader of such an advanced age to lead their administration. But this country has been born again. Its citizens first showed their discord as thousands either attended Tun’s ‘ceramahs’ on ground, braving the incessant rain, or a recorded 72000 people watch him live on Facebook to conceal their identities for fear of being reprimanded and possibly being penalized for doing so. Finally, the rakyat voted for the only face who could get the job done. Thank you Tun.

    How old is too old? Individuals are assessed on the bases of functionality of both their body and brain- their ability to move, perform all daily routines, thinking skills, memory and overall brain function. It has been claimed that as we reach the age of 90 our body won’t get any older. Michael Rose, Professor of Evolutionary Biology, says that “if you are lucky enough to live that long, you stop ageing.” We cannot deny that Tun Mahathir has not only defied all expectations of frailty by his opposition but has promoted a long and healthy life for himself and his wife Tun Siti Hazmah. Tun has managed to keep himself in peak condition, with little hiccups here and there. His successful inning can be owed to splendid genes, loving relationships with his family and friends, and a productive lifestyle.

    It is a dream for the majority of mankind to live forever. The good news is that you may well live longer than you expect. What is unclear is the state of our being. Scientists forecast life expectancy in the coming decades to exceed 90 years as a norm. Reaching the ripe old age of 90 was considered no mean feat at one time. Will we be able to reach this exclusive 90+ club? Will we be able to walk in Tun’s shoes literally? Will we be quick witted in mind and spirit and will our hearing and sight be sharp enough to pick right from wrong? Will we be bothered enough to fight for change for ourselves and others to be happier? Will we be horse riding with friends for recreation, or will we be reduced to a wheelchair in the corner of a dingy room in an old folks home, would we be capable of driving our soulmate to a romantic dinner and movie date, or lay still in our hospital beds craving for any kind of human contact, whether we could make our own decisions and deliver exhilarating speeches to hungry crowds or stare blankly at colourless walls with neither recollection of our past or hope for any future. A blessing or a curse, as we inch towards the ‘90+’ crowd with hope and dread, we must aim to be fit and healthy like Tun M, a perfect example of 90+ being the new 70.

    Dr Mahathir

    Please read my article on Tribute To An Intellect Thinker

    I fully support and encourage that you will be the right person for the post of Human Resource Minister. I dont think people are no uneducated … people have forgotten to think. We have stopped reading and with AI and digital technology reading has taken a back seat.

    I have been presented presentation to Ministry of Human Resource that their current syllabus on High Order Thinking is wrong… it got nothing to do with critical thinking, problem solving …. we need to teach the basic fundamental how to think and that comes when we learn to appreciate Courage- Respect – Trust. Once the children embrace that they will learn to ASK … ASK without intimidation or being ridiculed. Only by asking with inquisitive mind one start develop how to think. But to think with intellect not with intellect.

    An intelligent person lets you make up the bullshit but an Intellect lets you see through the bullshit!

    The current The World Economic Forum (WEF), ASEAN 4.0, Singapore’s Smart Nation 4.0, Malaysian National Industry 4.0 and Malaysian Human Capital 4.0 shares WHAT Industrial Revolution 4.0 is but none tells you WHY and HOW to prepare your workforce. There is major flaw… I have shared with MITI and even HRDF they just ignored me.

    They just mention re-skill, up-skill and multi-skill. There is no such thing. We need to develop new talent skills and children need to be though new learning. Please re-visit STEM … its a failure in America and in the UK. We call it STEM-C APPLE.

    “If we are doing what we have doing all this while and expecting a different results that’s insanity” – Albert Einstein.

    Allow me an hour of your time and will share the flaws and what’s need to be done to make this nation great or even greater. Its in the hands of children and human capital. Thank you.

    Dearest Tun M, Congratulations on being the PM for the second time in Malaysia as our prayers are answered. I wish to propose that the new Govt to eradicate any parties o persons to lead or be the voice of Malays, Chinese or Indians. E.g. In the past MIC and MCA in particular never actually represented the people but only benefited for themselves. We have to uphold as Malaysians and all works, contracts, positions shall be to the deserving ones based on merits. There shall been favours for Malays or Chinese or Indians etc. Only qualified people shall be in the Ministry. All policies shall be on the grounds of legal, fair and within the rule of law and constitutional rights.

    I also urge to remove the use of word “1 Malaysia and its shops, projects etc” as the word has no bearing but just a lip service in the past. As Malaysians, we need not have to just rely on a word o utter and we shall practice the values of being a Malaysians by respecting all races, religion and culture.

    السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته …

    Salam Ramadhan
    YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Bin Mohamad Perdana Malaysia yang ke 7 dan Pengerusi Pakatan Harapan.

    YAB Tun,

    Kami rakyat Malaysia rasa sangat berbangga dan berterima-kasih kepada YAB Tun di atas kenyataan Akhbar pada 16 Mei 2018, yang mana YAB Tun dengan tegas menyatakan Pakatan Harapan tidak akan menerima Ahli Parlimen dan Adun dari pihak lawan untuk menyertai Pakatan Harapan. Ini akan memperkukuhkan lagi Pakatan Harapan kerana parti lawan yang ingin melompat ada agenda tersendiri untuk menyertai Pakatan Harapan.

    Tahniah juga kepada YAB Tun yang mana telah mengotakan 3 Janji (10 Janji 100 Hari ) dalam masa 8 hari pentadbiran YAB Tun.

    1- GST pada kadar 0% mulai jun 2018
    2- Pengekalan Harga Petrol,Diesel dan pemberian kembali Subsidi petrol jika diperlukan.
    3- Memulakan siasatan keatas 1MDB dan isu-isu rasuah yang melibatkan Agensi Kerajaan terdahulu yang lain.

    Rakyat Malaysia sangat berbangga dengan kepimpinan YAB Tun.

    Yang terakhir, permintaan dari Rakyat Terengganu dan Kelantan supaya Pentadbiran YAB Tun yang baru bersama Pakatan Harapan dapat mengembalikan secara terus Royalti Petroleum kepada Kerajaan Negeri Terengganu dan juga Kerajaan Negeri Kelantan dan bukan melalui Jabatan dari Kerajaan Pusat sepertimana yang telah terjadi Pada Tahun 1999, yang mana YAB Tun adalah YAB PM ke 4 Malaysia ketika itu, telah menafikan hak royalti petroleum kepada Kerajaan Negeri Terengganu yang ditadbir PAS.

    Oleh yang demikian, kami rakyat sangat berharap YAB Tun dapat mempertimbangkan permintaan kami Negeri Terengganu dan Kelantan serta supaya Rakyat di kedua-dua negeri ini dapat menghargai dan mengingati budi baik YAB Tun.

    Semoga Allah mencucuri Rahmat dan Keberkatan dalam kepimpinan YAB Tun bersama Pakatan Harapan.

    Sekian, Terima Kasih

    Salam Tun Dr Mahathir,
    Imbas kembali tahun 80an dibawah pimpinan Tun, Malaysia berkembang dalam pelbagai sektor yang membangunkan ekonomi negara ke satu tahap yang amat membangakan . Salah satu sektor yang berkembang pesat iaitu perindustrian elektronik dari pelabur asing. Waktu itu negara Asia lain masih jauh di belakangan dari segi perkembangan ekonomi dan pembangunan.

    Saya ingin memohon Tun dan pasukan kerajaan baru yang amat bermotivasi tinggi agar dapat membangunkan semula sektor perindustrian bukan hanya dari pelaburan asing tetapi menbimbing dan melahirkan bakat bakat anak muda untuk mencipta produk Malaysia tersendiri yang bertaraf dunia melalui Progam Transformasi (R&D) Penyelidikan dan Pembangunan.

    Terima Kasih

  14. Ericdynx May 15,2018 11:54 AM


    Y.A.B TUN,

    Tahniah kepada Tun kerana dengan izinNya telah mendapat mandat dalam menerajui pemerintahan negara. Diharap YAB Tun dapat mengembalikan dan memperbaiki keadaan negara dan rakyat seperti yang telah di janjikan didalam menifesto Pakatan Harapan. 10 perkara dalam 100 hari dan 5 dasar utama yang telah di janjikan.

    Tujuan utama surat terbuka ini adalah untuk minta YAB Tun Tidak menerima atau membuat tapisan yang ketat untuk mana-mana Ahli Parlimen atau ADUN dari Barisan Nasional melompat kedalam gabungan Pakatan Harapan. Kerana selama ini merekalah antara yang memecah belahkan Parti UMNO dan tidak mungkin juga berhasrat akan memecah belah Pakatan Harapan terutamanya Ahli Parlimen dan Adun dari negeri Terengganu.

    Untuk pengetahuan YAB Tun, UMNO Terengganu adalah antara paling teruk pergolakan sehingga sanggup mengenepikan dasar parti kerana kepentingan sendiri dan bukan kerana rakyat. Sikap cantas- mencantas ini akan menular ke dalam Pakatan Harapan jika YAB Tun menerima mereka semua sebagai ahli gabungan. Biar la mereka merasa apa yang telah di buat kepada pembangkang sebelum ini.

    Oleh yang demikian, Saya sangat berharap YAB Tun dapat memberi perhatian dan siasatan terhadap surat terbuka ini.

    Dear Tun Dr Mahathir,

    My congratulations to you for making Malaysia a better place for everyone. However, as good as all these things are, they pale into insignificance when you compare it to one thing. Your health. Please look after your health. At 93 years young, I think you have the right to be a ‘bit’ selfish.

    This is all I ask.

We are proud of you and entire PH team to save our country and restore back democracy.Me and My family will take this opportunity to congrats personally to all of you. By the way, I have some suggestion to TUN how we can lift up our Government sector. Hope to get an audience with TUN to discuss on this, Hope to hear soon from TUN. Take care TUN and God Bless.

    I always felt that year by year I’m ageing, my time on earth is running out, I’m getting old, oh what am I going to do in life, have I achieved anything, or do I have any more time to achieve anything more, am I not getting old to start anything fresh? All this would dwell in my mind.
    But, today while driving in the beautiful morning to work, I felt a new freshness in the air (the car air-condition was not on, the shutters were thrown open). I was breathing in the fresh morning air which I always feel so good and I could feel the freshness of the new government of Malaysia, I was feeling the serenity, and I was hoping there will be a big change in many things which will make all the people here feel more comfortable and enjoy more living in this beautiful country that we love.
    So, back to the battle of my mind, at this age of 92, the charismatic leader of Malaysia, the inspiration of the nation who is back to office to make changes has changed my whole perception of life and age! Today I truly realised ‘Age is just the number’.


  21. JadenW May 11,2018 3:38 AM

    Tun, underatand many urgent matters u need your kind attention. Hope u can find out the truth about MH370… We need the truth uncovered. U are our hope now to find the plane so we can have a closure

  22. Chin May 10,2018 3:27 PM

    Dear Che Det,

    Tahniah Tun! Semoga Allah membantu anda untuk memenuhi impian Tun “Malaysia ke arah Wawasan 2020″.

  23. JoeM May 10,2018 9:57 AM

    Dear Tun,

    Firstly, congratulations on this ‘impossible to believe victory’ that only the Almighty could have wrought through you on behalf of the the people of Malaysia. Now is the time for nurturing a freshly reborn Malaysia and I hope you will hear me out as every true Malaysian looks to you and Team Harapan in the days to come.
    There is so much hard work that needs to be done and it is my hope that you will be magnanimous in victory and begin with healing the wounds and restoring the rule of law in order to unite the people before the road to recovery can be started
    I was a young student in UM when I attended my first political rally to hear Saudara Anwar speak in 1974. Of course my generation was deeply wounded when the Universities Act was imposed to curb us for the national good at that time. I never expected that 44 years later Tun and Saudara Anwar will hold the keys to setting right the many laws that were introduced to transfer power to the Executive from the Judiciary, the Civil Service and from Parliament itself. I hope the transformation to reintroduce the checks and balances will begin with a deep sense of repentance and forgiveness on all our parts so that the new Malaysia will be a home where each Malaysian can live to his or her fullest potential.
    My late father-in-law (who passed away 2 years ago at 96 y.o.) was your good friend and had always believed in you although his younger generation were rather cautious about the legacy of freedom that you left behind for us. Now we thank you for responding to the call of this beloved nation of ours. Indeed the Almighty Himself has led you for such a time as this and we are truly grateful.
    Our hope and prayer is to see you reset the foundations for this new Malaysia, our Mysia, as the family prefers to say. Just as you came out of retirement to serve again, be assured that many of us senior citizens are equally excited to be a part of the new Malaysia’s re-emergence as our children take over soon. If nothing else, be assured of our continuous and unceasing prayers for you and your family as well as Team Harapan in the strenuous days ahead.

    May Allah bless you with energy and strength at this time.

  24. ashleypang May 10,2018 9:34 AM

    Dear Tun

    Heartiest Congratulations to TUN, Pakatan Harapan and all Malaysians who have voted and supported the GE14! This is the dream comes true for all Malaysians and now the “Capsule” has brought Tun back into our government! As a Malaysian who grew up during your era, I am indeed truly proud and truly grateful to Tun.

    I do have some wish lists that I hope Tun and your successor could take into considerations to implement them for the great benefits of our country and our people in stages.

    1. Abolish the race column in all our official forms. WE ARE ALL BANGSA MALAYSIA. MALAYSIAN FIRST!We need to instill this BANGSA MALAYSIA SPIRIT in all Malaysians. We need to teach our children to be COLOUR BLIND!TOGETHER WE WILL BUILD MALAYSIA AS A GREAT NATION.I grew up as a colour bind child until I went into university where reality set in. I do like race based policy!Lets build a colour blind nation Tun!

    2. REFORM OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM. Bring back the English medium in our education system so we can be competitive in the world stage like how we used to be. I believe we have many qualified educators, be in in service or retired & professionals who will be glad to be part of this reformation to rebuild or education system. We do have many NGO, such as TEACH FOR MALAYSIA and more who are doing great jobs to to rebuild our nation through education.
    Let educator leads the Ministry of Education. No more politicians! This is the most important Ministry Tun! This ministry will determine how far we will be as a nation!
    Reform our education system from pre-school all the way to university. Provide sufficient education funds and allow true independence of each higher learning education institute that is managed by calibre educators not corporate figure or politically incline administrator. I am one of the recipient of The Ministry of Science and Technology’s National Science Fellowship during your tenure as our PM. I am forever grateful Tun! Allow retired educators to continue to service our higher learning education institutes rather than chasing them off after retirement age. Retain talents in our local universities! I am a graduate of University of Malaya just like Tun and I am very proud of it!

    3 Gazette all green lungs and forest reserved for the future! We need more parks for our children and theirs. This beautiful motherland is not own by us, but loan to use by our children. we have to ensure this motherland is well taken care of so that they can pass it down to their children and more.


    5 ACKNOWLEDGE UNIFIED EXAMINATION CERTIFICATE! Thousands of our talents are leaving Malaysia to Singapore and other countries each year because Malaysia do not recognize this certificate as an entrance certificate for local university.

    6 Have good control of foreigners esp the illegals in our country! When I was in Sandakan Sabah, I felt being in an alien nation surrounded by foreigners who speaks and behave differently! We must clean up this mess across Malaysia. I support Malaysia for Malaysians only policy!I cannot deny the contributions of the foreigners esp migrant workers, but we need better control of their entrance in Malaysia.

    7 We need to look into the welfare of our servicemen, like our PDRM, BOMBA, ARMY, NAVY etc. Very often their welfare are not well taken care of. They have given so much to this nation. Provide quality education and continuous trainings, better housing, better pay and other benefits. These are our unsung heros of the nation.

    8 As we are advancing into an ageing population by 2030. We need to plan and support our golden age population. We need better planning to ensure our senior citizens who were once upon a time the nation buidlers, our servicemen are being well taken care of. BUDAYA PENYANYANG TUN!
    We shall have one new Ministry called Ministry of Senior Citizen who look after the welfare of the the golden age group.

    9 We need bigger budgets for the Ministry of Health to continue its great effort to look after the health and provide quality healthcare services to all Malaysians esp the senior citizens. As a former medical supplier, I have great opportunity to work with many of the KKM hospitals. Our KKM have great staffs and good services but at times lack of funding that sets the limits their services or upgrading. Private healthcare is very expensive nowadays, I hope our KKM services can reach out to more of our Malaysians in the outskirts too. Probably having a mobile clinic into rural area or the urban poor esp for the senior citizens.Provide free health check for the seniors citizens and urban poor.

    10 Strengthen our currency. Tun did it once in the 90s. We shall be able to do it again and better this time

    11 Having a unified and truly dedicated Ministry of welfare for all OKU or special needs. We need to give opportunity to this group of citizen for early intervention education, training and continuous training and employment opportunity. I speak from my own experience as a mother of a special needs child Tun. Not much has been done to the OKU residents of Malaysia

    12 Grant citizenship to all stateless qualified MALAYSIANS. Some were born out of wedlock, some lost their documents and some born overseas but raised and breed in Malaysia.

    13 Cut down bureaucracy and create a new, lean and transparent government that is RAKYAT FRIENDLY.

    14 Provide more traininng and education opportunities for the forgotten communities, ie early drop out, urband or rural poor, single mom, etc
    Empower the marginalised community with education



    17 INVOLVE MALAYSIANS IN POLICY & DECISION MAKING. We can emulate how the Swiss are doing! I am married to a Swiss and could see how efficient the country is run when the citizens are involved directly in policy making.

    18 Clean up our electorate and EC! All Malaysians above 21 years old should be a voter AUTOMATICALLY! Make voting hassle free for Malaysians overseas or postal voters!

    19 Introduce elections for local city council or municipal! This will ensure all our cities or towns are better managed!

    Thanks for reading Tun.
    Thanks for being a great loving father to all MALAYSIANS
    Please rest well and do not overwork as you are now 93 TUN!

    We all love you very much and will be working together with TUN to rebuild this beautiful nation, our beloved MALAYSIA

    best regards

    Malaysia has more than sufficient universities. The issue at hand is the curriculum, the passion and ability to educate, and students prepared to be educated. The first three are obviously missing.

    Our country needs a structural change in the education system. Therein lies the opportunities to achieve competitiveness to drive economic development. But such change cannot occur until the leadership recognizes that in building human resource capacity, success comes only with learning, and not by altering the results to show achievement for certain race.

    NEP and Ketuanan Melayu simply destroyed the technical and administrative advantages the British imparted from their colonization – just compare the standings of UM before NEP came into play.

    NEP did bring benefits for many but it wrecked havoc to the structural competitiveness of the country. If there is true passion for progress, NEP must now be focused on the poor, not on race and the civil service needs to be enhanced by attracting capable administrators rather than just ensuring places for bumiputras.

    With the benefit of hindsight of where Malaysia has failed, surely Tun has an incredible opportunity to place in an unforgettable legacy for our children. That lies the hope of many.

    MP can form a government not based on party. MP that won majority votes should be selected to represent the government for minister post. Remember all MP is selected by rakyat. Ruling country based on party is unfair and biased. Not the wining party form the government because this cause non performers also become ministers due to monopoly that is not Democratic. Priority should be given for MP that won majority vote to form the government. I have done working paper how to simulate Malaysia economy growth. Need to submit to Dr. M but not sure how to meet him. Hope I can contact him and submit the working paper.

    In order to win the election Dr Mahatahir should talk on how he will transform Malaysia to developed country. He should just mention that he has several strategy to develop our nation maybe by 2020 or 2030. In 2020 maybe cannot achieve due to damage done by Najib. Dr. Mahathir should be PM just for one term to fine tune and put back all the policy in track including education system and monetary policy. Dr Mahathir should come out with new policy. Not the winning party to form a government but all the MP can be selected to form a government. This mean all party has responsibility. I think Mahathir should talk about new strategy that he will lead including non Malays for Mentri Besar and his plan to develop economic growth stop stalking about UMNO or BN or Najib it all useless start working on your government and explain to rakyat your plan. Dr. M can do, very capable man. From Economist

    Dear Tun

    I am trying to get in touch with you for an interview session. It is regarding a research paper I am working on, on Malaysia’s involvement in Antarctica, which began with your intervention at the UNGA in the 1980s. If you could oblige me with some of your time for this, I will be very grateful. Thank you.

    Jews, Christians, and Muslims are Abrahamic religions, all come from the same root.

    Fighting among one another of the same family tree or even the encouragement of fighting itself is act of terror.

    We Malaysian are not allowed to visit Israel, I know ZERO about Israel, and I thought Muslims in Israel are badly suppressed like the Rohingya in Myanmar.

    How many Muslims do you think are there is Israel? My best guess was ZERO.
    How many mosques do you think are there is Israel? My best guess was ZERO.

    I was wrong! 17.4% of Israel population is Muslims. And there are 19 major mosques in Israel.

    I search Youtube for Muslims in Israel and saw video of Muslims living in harmony with the Jews.

    My perceptions about Israel were wrong, I was brainwashed; I was propagandized.

    Not anymore.

    May peace be upon our earth.

  34. Mr Norse Viking Apr 25,2017 6:47 PM

    I was seeing a video where you really spelled out the truth about the jews.

    I think this is very admirable and I think it is time for all Christians and Muslims to instead of fighting each other fight together against the real enemy. The jew.

    Anyway, i think a guy like you should get the (((noble prize))) but unfortunally that will never happen unless we change the world to a better place.

    Use your power Wisely!

    Best to all of you!

    Dear Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad,

    As-Salaamu ‘Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu.

    I am one of many admirers of the noble and courageous career, voice, benevolence and life-mission that you have so gracefully dedicated to the noblest cause of Universal Justice and Human Rights. You are one of the last remaining True Leaders that the world — especially the Muslim world — can look up to, especially when no avenues of Justice remain open in our current world.

    I write to you today to bring your kind attention to the very serious and unique case of a real life righteous man whom the system has been oppressing and suppressing till date — Mr. Brendon O’Connell. His unique case has unprecedented global repercussions, with regards to the sheer horror humanity will face if the Ummah fails to do anything in support of his case.

    Brendon is the only gentleman on the planet to have been unjustly imprisoned and tortured in his own country [Australia] by the Israeli/ Talmudic mafia that claims to rule virtually the whole world by now. He was compelled to flee Western Australia, and is now [temporarily] in Malaysia, trying to fight his case and win his life back.

    I appeal to you, in utmost humility and the highest humanitarian plea, to [please] grant your strongest and kindest support to Brendon and his case [in every way that you deem possible] through your gracious and most influential capacity, to ensure the justice as well as [mass-] attention and support he rightly needs and deserves.

    For years, he has been suppressed and isolated in every manner imaginable. And the outcome of your kind intervention/ help could easily lead to no less than a monumental and historic victory for humanity over [centuries of] injustice.

    Brendon had, in effect, taken an exemplary stand for Muslims, against the oppressing Jews. It is most unfortunate that no Muslim has done anything for him when he faced the torturous consequences of such a noble stance and action — except the one Muslim brother called Mustafa Atieh whose life and family got destroyed thereafter, and who kept getting dragged to court (and again on this Friday, 24 February 2017).

    Sir, you are the only exemplary person on the globe, in our time, that one could think of appealing to under such oppressive/ tyrannical circumstances, since you are the only person who had officially and legally prosecuted the oppressive regime of [Anglo-Judeo-Imperial] Israel, in front of this whole world full of compromised, expedient, corrupt and timid psyches. We thus request you to kindly intervene — similarly masterfully — in this particular case (which will have extensive and multifaceted global, political and humanitarian outcomes).

    Brendon represents those very best of human souls who have been subjected to the most inhumane overt and Covert abuse and torture by the Satanic Supranational System of [self-proclaimed-Jewish] usurpers and criminals that claim to rule our world, today! Countless Muslims have died drowning in their solitary pains and tears since 9/11. And all those [of us] souls that Brendon represents will be Eternally grateful to you for your kind, courageous and gracious help.

    Helpless souls eagerly look forward to your kindest consideration and grace, thereto.

    Warmest Regards and Salaam,

    Yours Sincerely,

    Thank you for being there for us. I pray for Tun’s soul and Tun Siti Hasmah’s soul, that you both live to save this nation with Anuar and family who he unfortunately is tied up. It pains it my heart though I know you started it.

    You Tun put food on every Malay and Malaysians table. I have to admit that. I praise you.

    Govt of today is a family of thieves. Nazir Razak is one, a hidden thief and so is the whole family. Its difficult to catch one that pretends.

    I saw Muhiyddin’s speech. He could bring the change. But he has to go with Mukhriz to the rural people and talk to them. Bersih 5 has done their bit.

    Najib is stupid, all thieves will be caught. Precedent has been set. GOD is GREAT. Example of today is the US. The evil Hillary Clinton lost. Hillary killed 1.2 million Arabs for Bush, Bill and Obama’s glory. She wont’ hurt you if you paid protection money.

    Why kill Gadaffi?
    Why kill Sadam?

    Hurt Crimea?, hurt Ukraine?
    Hurt Yemen?, Hurt Syria?

    The rest paid money…S Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Emirates, Morocco, Oman
    and more.

    Malaysia has got 3 powerful races with each having their own expertise.
    Unfortunately UMNO killed it.

    Tun. The US as needs us. Make contact with Trump and explain to him the situation we are in. Tun only you can do it. Take Mukhriz along.

    Assalamualaikum Tun Mahathir, I read your book Malay Dilemma when I was a teenager…after 36 year from the day I read your book, what you have expressed your worries and concerns are now become a reality…I remembered joining UMNO and attended a training session at camp Ghafar Baba in Ulu Klang in 1988…After the gruelling team building and ala commando trainning session, at that time, Dato Najib, gave a closing talk to boost the Malay spirit and what UMNO desired to be in the near future. Everything unfold after Dato Sri Najib become PM and both Dato Sri Najib and Tun Mahathir vision and mission for the Malay is at a across road..the clash of the titans..because I was so engrossed with both of your idealism till I was carried away seeing both of you in my dream…as a Muslim, bad dream we are advised not to reveal but spit on our left side 3 times and ask ALLAH’s protection from satan’s bad intention…there is still hope to save Malaysia from becoming a state of anarchy or worst like Philipine during Marcos and Imelda time…Bersatu is a life boat for Malaysia and let other BN components except UMNO to quickly get on board the Bersatu life boat to sail away from the disaster island of terror and lawless state UMNO current leaders have created. Any UMNO members who have weak hearts and love the tyranny and corrupted mindset leadership; leave them behind as hyprocrites are a dangerous breed to associate with. Tun Mahathir political will to bury the hatchet with Dato Sri Anwar is lauded and emotionally motivated to others and this is a spritual Islamic mindset to give and forget the past to save Malaysia for Malaysian…lets hold hands and work together in harmony with all races in our way back to to place Malaysia in the world map and wipe out the bad name Malaysia is suffering from and we as Malaysian should strive harder and smarter to make Malaysia a country we are a proud to be a Malaysian…InshaAllah…Happy celebration Eid Adha to Tun Mahathir and family members…Azman Bin Abd Wahab

    1.Kerajaan ada menyatakan satu kajian telah dijalankan mengenai impak Perjanjian Perkongsian Trans Pasifik (TPPA) kepada ekonomi Negara. Kajian tersebut bersifat “hypothetical”. Kita semua maklum penemuan apa jua kajian amat bergantung kepada andaian-andaian yang digunakan. Apakah andaian-andaian yang telah digunakan? Adakah andaian-andaian berkenaan realistik dan menggambarkan keadaan-keadaan yang akan berlaku apabila TPPA dilaksanakan?

    2.Kalau kita hendak penemuan yang positif atau berpihak kepada kita, kita gunakan andaian-andaian longgar atau tidak berpaksikan kepada realiti sebenar. Begitu juga sebaliknya. Kalau kita hendak penemuan yang realistik, kita gunakan andaian-andaian yang ketat yang akan menggambarkan keadaan-keadaan yang akan dihadapi apabila TPPA dilaksanakan. Di sini kita ingin tahu apakah andaian-andaian yang telah digunakan dalam kajian mengenai kesan TPPA. Kita perlu bahaskan andaian-andaian tersebut satu persatu. Adakah kajian telah mengambilkira semua keadaan yang berkemungkinan berlaku? Persoalan pokok – adakah syarikat-syarikat tempatan dalam pelbagai skala operasi daripada yang kecil, sederhana dan besar dapat bersaing dengan syarikat-syarikat gergasi multi-nasional yang dijangka akan membanjiri ekonomi negara apabila segala sekatan perdagangan di mansuhkan melalui TPPA.

    3.Dua scenario boleh berlaku apabila TPPA dilaksanakan – bergantung kepada tahap kesediaaan dan keupayaan syarikat-syarikat tempatan bersaing dalam pasaran terbuka dengan syarikat-syarikat multi-nasional asing.
    Senario Pertama – kebanyakan syarikat tempatan bersedia dan berupaya bersaing dengan syarikat multi-nasional. Kebaikan yang terkandung di dalam TPPA dapat diraih dan dinikmati oleh syarikat-syarikat tempatan secara khusus dan ekonomi Negara secara Am.

    Senario Kedua – menggambarkan keadaan yang sebaliknya. Kebanyakan syarikat tempatan tidak bersedia dan berupaya bersaing dengan syarikat multi-nasionak asing di pasaran bebas dan terbuka.

    Penguasaaan pra-TPPA ke atas syarikat-syarikat tempatan di dalam industri-industri tertentu akan terhakis secara berterusan. Kebaikan yang dihajatkan melalui TPPA tidak menjadi realiti. Syarikat-syarikat tempatan tidak dapat bertahan apabila syarikat gergasi dunia yang serba berpengalaman, berkebolehan dan berkeupayaan masuk beroperasi dan dengan cepat menguasai sektor demi sektor ekonomi negara. Penjajahan perdagangan dan ekonomi akan berlaku. Di mana syarikat-syarikat tempatan yang serba kekurangan dapat bernafas dan “survive”? Sebilangan kecil mungkin boleh bersaing. Tetapi kebanyakan syarikat tempatan akan menghadapi keadaan yang getir dan berkemungkinnan terpaksa menggulung tikar.

    Sekiranya senario kedua berlaku, apakah opsyen yang boleh digunakan di bawah TPPA? Di sini mungkin pendukung TPPA mengatakan ada. Sekiranya ada, kita perlu kaji dan teliti peruntukan TPPA yang membolehkan TPPA di gantung perlaksanaannya oleh negara peserta. Apakah keadaan-keadaan tersebut? Opsyen penggantungan TPPA perlu mengambilkira kepentingan negara – khususnya berkaitan dengan impak negatif kepada syarikat-syarikat tempatan.

    Sekiranya TPPA ingin dilaksanakan, dalam TPPA perlu ada peruntukan yang menyatakan dalam tempoh awal perlaksanaan, misalnya 10 tahun pertama, negara peserta boleh pada bila-bila masa dan tanpa memberikan sebab dan tanpa penalti dalam apa jua bentuk, berundur daripada menjadi peserta TPPA dan mengenakan semula sekatan dan melaksanakan bantuan atau program sokongan yang terpaksa dimansuhkan apabila menyertai TPPA. Peruntukan penyelamat (“Escape Clause”) ini PENTING. Sekiranya tidak, Negara dan syarikat-syarikat tempatan akan selama-lamanya terjerat dan tidak dapat melepaskan diri daripada terjerat dengan perjanjian yang tidak mendatangkan kebaikan yang diharapkan.

    Dalam menghadapi impak TPPA, samada positif atau negatif, Kerajaan perlu mengambil pendekatan yang pro-aktif. Antara langkah yang boleh diambil ialah :

    I.Mempastikan TPPA mengandungi peruntukan penyelamat yang jelas dan tanpa syarat.
    II.Dalam tempoh perlaksanaan awal TPPA (sekurang-kurangnya 10 tahun) perlu ditubuhkan satu Jawatankuasa Tertinggi khas di bawah Jabatan Perdana Menteri, satu unit yang dilengkapkan dengan sumber kepakaran bagi memantau perlaksanaan TPPA, terutamanya dari segi impak ke atas syarikat-syarikat tempatan di pelbagai skala dan menyediakan laporan berkala. Laporan ini perlu dihebahkan kepada umum. Laporan yang disediakan amat penting. Ia akan menjadi asas kepada perbincangan jawatankuasa dan keputusan mengenai beberapa perkara tertentu, termasuk:
    Jumlah Syarikat tempatan yang menikmati faedah daripada TPPA dan nilai tambahan perniagaan di setiap industri.
    Jumlah syarikat tempatan yang terjejas berikutan pelaksanaan TPPA dan nilai perniagaan yang terjejas di setiap industri.
    Menetapkan 3 tahap impak TPPA – Hijau, Kuning dan Merah (seperti lampu i
    syarat trafik). Hijau – TPPA boleh terus dilaksanakan. Kuning – Perhatian dan tindakan susulan perlu diambil bagi syarikat-syarikat tempatan yang terjejas. Merah – kesan negatif yang teruk.
    Tahap impak TPPA (samada hijau, kuning atau merah) di setiap industri.
    Menerus atau menamatkan TPPA bagi setiap Industri.

    Apa jua keadaan yang boleh berlaku, kita perlukan pengukuran impak. Dua set indikator pengukuran impak diperlukan – satu di peringkat makro, iaitu kesan secara keseluruhan kepada ekonomi negara dan satu lagi, di peringkat mikro –berkaitan dengan syarikat-syarikat tempatan di pelbagai skala operasi perniagaan – kecil, sederhana dan besar dan di pelbagai industri. Ini amat penting. Kita perlu beralih daripada hujjah berbentuk retorik yang mengatakan TPPA bagus untuk perdagangan dan ekonomi Negara. Itu semua teori. Kita tidak pertikaikan kebaikan. Kita hendak ukur secara terperinci kesan TPPA – samada positif atau negatif kepada syarikat-syarikat tempatan. Kita juga perlu peruntukan penyelamat dalam TPPA bagi menghadapi situasi kesan negatif yang teruk kepada syarikat tempatan dan ekonomi Negara, sekiranya berlaku.

    You are absolutely right to remind the new Bloggers and some LKY sympathisers that it is only proper and right to comment on your topics on this distinguished Blog and not to attack personally those they disagree with, like me.

    Take the case of my defence of the Prime Ministers.

    ” I still say that the closest aides were responsible for all the scandals which were allegedly blamed on our beloved Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and our Distinguished and Honourable Dato Seri Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak.” This is the truth because no person should be judged guilty until proven in the Courts of Law.

    And I could produce 3 real pieces of evidence how the closest aides abused the trust and goodwill which the Prime Ministers had in them.

    And also, one and only huge scandal which did not happen, because it was aborted before it reached the point of no return unlike all the others.

    With the apparent new dimension in Malaysian Politics, your distinguished Blog is now flooded by Opposition hard-core members or Singaporean spies who collectively attacked me personally eg. The aka TWOG, isayso, wajaperak, ilioni, faridini, balance – The Magnificent Seven. Vide. The New Straits Times Streets Central Supplement Page 8. March 8, 2014. Singaporean spies in technicolour.

    Tun, of course you know that these Opposition hard-core members are only wasting their time and show their vulgarity by attacking me.

    But this new form of Opposition tactic will fail because of their exclusivity in using their attacking powers like a shotgun which shoots at nothing or the wrong target like me.

    And their ultimate aim is to pretend they suppport you to break up UMNO. We were not born yesterday.

  51. Ibrahim Albahar Aug 30,2015 10:57 AM

    Yes, good idea jamiek. Better to get somebody influential to launch the National Police Reporting Day so that the entire nation who are concern about the well-being of Malaysia could all go to any police station and make a police report. If the response is overwhelming, it could be a first step to save Malaysia.


  52. Ibrahim Albahar Aug 29,2015 4:58 PM

    Vital Evidence 1– For years Najib had been keeping the large amount of money in his account without telling even the former DPM. Had it not been for the leakage of this top secret, he would obviously continue to keep the money as his personal because it is in his personal account. I believe UMNO MT was not even aware of this for years. This is extremely bad which raised suspicion of personal interest over national interest.

    Vital Evidence 2– Investigation is unnecessary. Najib knows every thing but purposely remain secretive for a long time indicating strong possibility of foul play and cover up.

    Vital Evidence 3– Nobody will ever be honest to declare to the bank extremely huge amount of money transaction to a personal account as illegal money. To convince the bank appropriate word will have to be carefully selected to make it acceptable to the bank. Until today, the nature of this suspicious banking transaction remain a top level secret.

    It is extremely vital for the nation that National interest has to be far above personal interest. If this is not the case, Malaysia will be in serious trouble. Something great need to be immediately done to save Malaysia

  53. Ibrahim Albahar Aug 26,2015 9:27 PM


    Tun, may I suggest that you start a nation-wide singature champange using various methods (electronic and others) in every state to remove Najib from office. If the response is overhelming which I believe so will generate a greater effort and effective force to compel him to step down. The masses can be very effective.

    KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 5 — Datuk Zaid Ibrahim suggested today that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and the opposition join forces to hold a mammoth rally with at least 100,000 participants to protest against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak amid the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) controversy.

    The former de facto law minister said former prime minister Dr Mahathir and Muhyiddin, who was recently removed as deputy prime minister, together with PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Selangor Mentri Besar Azmin Ali and Harapan Baru chief Mohamad Sabu, should stand together at the rally to declare that, despite their political differences, they will unite to “save” Malaysia.

    “Nothing is more urgent than the ‘rakyat’ showing the courage to assemble the way Philippine people power brought Ferdinand Marcos to book and how everyday Indonesians rallied against Suharto,” Zaid wrote on his blog, referring to the former Philippine and Indonesian presidents who were overthrown over their dictatorial rule.

    “These leaders should not allow those who steal and plunder the nation’s wealth to get away,” he added, referring to Dr Mahathir, Muhyiddin and opposition leaders.

    “They must show the people the power of solidarity against corruption and the abuse of power. They must restore our faith in our police and our Attorney-General’s Chambers,” said Zaid.

    Amid the controversy over corruption allegations involving 1MDB, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) came out Tuesday to say that the RM2.6 billion in Najib’s personal bank account did not come from the state-owned fund, but was a donation instead. The identities of the donors were not specified.

    Najib also dropped his deputy Muhyiddin and Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal from Cabinet last week, both of whom had been publicly critical of the government’s handling of the 1MDB controversy.

    Tan Sri Gani Patail, who had been leading an inter-agency task force investigating 1MDB, was also suddenly dropped as Attorney-General, while four BN members of the parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC) were appointed to the Cabinet, causing its own 1MDB probe to be suspended and interviews with 1MDB executives delayed.

    “Now, it seems that Bank Negara Governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz and her officers might be next on the hit list,” said Zaid.

    “Malaysia has become a basket case managed by ministers and civil servants who seem completely uninterested in defending the institutions of government. They appear to be interested only in ‘cover-ups’ and have redefined everything from corruption to ‘activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy’ to suit themselves. They are only loyal to Najib,” he said.

    Several protesters at a rally last weekend calling for Najib’s resignation were arrested under Section 124B of the Penal Code over their alleged involvement in activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy, an offence punishable with a 20-year jail term.

    “Let’s show the ‘rakyat’ that we, the politicians, can unite across party lines to save the country – even if it’s for just a day. This can be the historic moment that, finally, sparks the movement for true unity in our land,” said Zaid.

    Bersih 2.0 is also planning to stage a two-day rally in the city this August 29.

    Dear Tun,

    As UMNO member, I am wondering if the money just a “Donation” why should Tan Seri Muhyiddin and AG fired?

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Bolehkah Tun Mahathir menerangkan dengan lebih lanjut mengenai TPPA dan apakah implikasinya kepada negara kita?

    Terima kasih Tun Mahathir.

    Assalamualaikum Tun,
    You did a great contribution to this nation and continue doing it. But it looks like your contributions are being destroyed by government of your beloved party? Do you think it is still relevant to hold on to your love for the party- which the people and system of it doing less good and more bad to the nation? Do you have any hope still that Vision 2020 is achievable?

    Yang amat berhormat TUn Dr.Mahathir,
    Selamat hari lahir. Saya yakin Malaysia akan bangkit semula dan menjadi sebuah negara yang lebih kuat, makmur dan bersatu setelah mengharungi the challenges pada masa sekarang. The roots of Malaysia’s foundation are strong..Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Rajak, Tun Hussein Onn….and yourself, TUn Tan Cheng Lock, Tun Sambathanathan and many more to mention. There are leaders and many patriots of such calibre. I am and always be proud to say I am Malaysian, always was, is and always will be.

  64. VBUDDHA Jul 13,2015 5:42 PM

    Dear Tun
    I dont believe all of Malaysia’s problems are caused by yourself as often accused of. However you have to bear responsibility for being the chief architect of the system you created that has now created a breed of extremely mediocre politicians that are called our leaders !!! They are doing a good job leading us to oblivion. Your pain in the poem is palpable and your desire to see a change for the better is shared by all. But in seeking to perpetuate the rule through another useless mediocre leader in BN , your selfish interest in self-preservation is all too naked to be seen.
    The best of the minds and brains are no longer in UMNO/BN. PLEASE do your part to safe this country but not with the rotten to the core BN . PLEASE be magnanimous and rope in the brightest of the young this country has. PLEASE stop the race and religion based politics that is tearing this country apart as the looters go about their job.
    A hopeful Doctor

    Hi Tun, I am Paul, a very normal citizen in Malaysia. If I am allowed and find favor in your eyes, please allow me to have a 5-10 minutes face-to-face conversation with you. I don’t mind having your securities around. Just a few words with you.

    Please do let me know, regards.

  70. janicelbf Jul 7,2015 12:09 PM

    Hi Tun,

    Will the scandal on 1MDB affect the economy in Malaysia? If so please help to save Malaysia. Reading this at I am not sure who is the liar now.

    Just that I want to have a better Malaysia.

    Thanks Tun and hope you can make Malaysia a better to live.

  71. yogee Jul 6,2015 4:58 PM

    Assallam Tun,

    Merujuk kepada laporan WSJ tempoh hari, apakah tindakan Gebenor Bank Negara boleh lakukan.

    Adakah Gebenor Bank Negara mempunyai kuasa untuk menyiasat dan mengambil tindakan yang sewajarnya ke atas akaun yang dipaparkan oleh pihak WSJ sekiranya dakwaan mereka benar.

    Adakah benar Tun adalah individu disebalik laporan yang dikeluarkan oleh WSJ sepertimana yang didakwa oleh DS Najib.

    Mohon komen Tun.

    Terima kasih.

  72. Nusantara Jul 6,2015 2:35 PM

    We hope Tun can comments on the recent WSJ report on Najib alleged of keeping USD $700 million of the rakyat money in his AM Bank account. Thank you Tun.

  73. alex7877 Jun 18,2015 6:02 PM

    Yeah.. Jamiek your concern are true! I just made a comment and hope I will not get into trouble too. As Malaysian, I feel its time for us to stand up.
    Looks like worst than the old Macau in the 70s going to happen..

  74. jamiek Jun 12,2015 12:22 PM


    Can I file a police report based on Tun Mahathir’s blog on 1MDB and request the police and MACC to conduct an investigation into possible abuse of power by the PM and be also not afraid of censure?
    Can the Government guarantee our safety? Can the voice of the Rakyat be heard without fear? I do not hope to be crucified or killed la Teo Beng Hock style…
    I am sure that many citizens want to help Tun Mahathir and the only logical step is to have as many people turning up at the police stations to make a police report for the possible abuse of power by the PM over the matter of 1MDB..
