Mahathir thinks everyone is like him
Salleh Said Keruak
Today, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak is going to arrest the opposition leaders. That is the most ridiculous thing Mahathir has said so far and there is no basis for saying it.
From 1998 to 2001 Mahathir detained many of those who opposed him. And he used the detention without trial law to detain those he could not charge in court.
The Human Rights Watch said in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, etc., that Malaysia under Mahathir is a police state while Mahathir is a dictator. Mahathir replied that Malaysia cannot practice western-style democracy because of the danger of racial problems like what happened in 1969.
Mahathir is making unfounded allegations against Prime Minister Najib because he has nothing left to say. Maybe Mahathir is worried about the RCI on the US$10 billion forex losses.
