Above are three images of ‘the new Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’ after he left UMNO, the party that once made him the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
The first image was taken at the High Court of Kuala Lumpur on September 5, 2015, when he made a surprise court visit in support of Anwar Ibrahim, during Anwar’s NSC suit.
It was Dr Mahathir who sacked Anwar Ibrahim from the Deputy Prime Minister post before Anwar was sent to jail.
The second image was taken on November 19, 2016, during the illegal Bersih 5 demonstration in Kuala Lumpur.
In the photo, Mahathir, wearing a Bersih 5 t-shirt was seen shouting like a mad demonstrator, when during his days as the Prime Minister, he was against demonstrations and looked down at demonstrators.
The third image shows Dr Mahathir proudly wears a ‘Free Anwar Now’ badge, another odd situation after what he did and said about Anwar when he was still in power.
What is happening to Dr Mahathir?
Dr Mahathir was once a statesman and condemned Bersih demonstrators as wanting to topple a legally elected government.
But now he eagerly took part in the illegal Bersih demonstration which was led by the party that he once hates.
Like Bersih leaders, he too wants and trying hard to bring down the legally elected government; an action which he used to condemn.
He had changed from a statesman to a street demonstrator, taking part in an illegal demonstration to topple a legal government.
Dr Maharhir had changed from a great and smart leader to a person easily used by his enemy turns ally, as claimed by “DAP’s Superman” Hew Kuan Yau.
According to Hew Kuan Yau, DAP is only using Mahathir to bring down Najib.
