PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar should be able to compare with wisdom on treatments to Anwar Ibrahim as the opposition at the time of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak with the era of Mahathir Mohamad.The difference is indeed noteworthy.In those eras when Anwar was against Mahathir, he was never seen visited Anwar when his father was hospitalized instead what Nurul Izza and her siblings witnessed was a bruised left eye.
Today, not only Anwar is no longer bleeding when bruised and hospitalized for treatment, he received a visit from Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor. In fact, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and his wife also visited Anwar in Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL). Both even called upon Malaysians to pray for his speedy recovery.
Anwar is not a political detainee as the opposition claimed. Far different from what Mahathir has ever done to his political enemies during Ops Lalang who abuses the Internal Security Act or better known as ISA to detain them without any trial.
Even until today, when Mahathir is in cahoots with the opposition, not once did he apologize for removing Anwar and put him behind bars. Worse still when Mahathir still leverages Anwar’s immoral issues as his ultimate reason not to replace him. This had occurred during his recent interview with a foreign media.
Evidently, Anwar was given a fair ample of time that it reached to Malaysia record as the longest court trial ever. The court verdicts Anwar as guilty was due to his sodomy case against his former aide and neither was it political nor seditious issues.
Hence, to Anwar’s children, it is best to open their eyes and keep a clear mind to see the difference between Najib and Mahathir. Have they not assimilate enough to witness Datuk Seri Najib’s willingness to brave the floods in Penang despite the voters are mostly supporting DAP?
Expectantly, Nurul Izzah could be well aware of his father’s real political enemy is even though she is now determined to work together for political power and survival.
As it is, each time whenever there is a public forum such as the ‘Nothing to Hide’ program organized by PPBM and the latest the townhall discourse hosted by DAP, to question Mahathir’s stance on Anwar’s immoral issue kept on repeating yet they are always a favourite topic, but Mahathir never failed to ignore it too.
Do all that made Nurul Izzah and her siblings failed to think discerningly? Is it true that Mahathir honestly wants to help his father or merely another of his crafty political plot?
Even the people are not convinced with Mahathir’s honesty, why should he be given any space of trust?
