When the current government reacts childishly on Tun --- by removing and hiding his name, pictures, achievements and contributions from public --- I could not help myself from feeling despised over the move.
All major modern and traditional medias --- most probably owned by the ruling party --- are campaigning against Tun and demonising his legacy and past premiership. Almost all ministers in Najib's cabinet give bad and stink remarks on him like he was a monster.
With 49% or less support from the people in past election, I believe, they will suffer even more than Tun in next GE. How would they dare to have a thought that Najib's popularity is greater than Tun?
Wherever I go, people blame Najib for his bad leadership, his scandals, his performance, his poor management and even scold him for the economic meltdown. People dislike him. They don't trust him.
He has been becoming the most unpopular Prime Minister of all --- the fact that he seems to ignore.
Unlike Najib, Tun is different. He is pure class. Even he is not in power anymore, he stands still in people's heart, mind and blood. He is like our unforgettable first love --- bitter and sweet memories that last for the rest of life.
The greatest thing Tun has ever done to the people is, he makes us feel great. He makes us proud to be who we are. He makes us believe in ourselves.
''I am Malaysian,'' we would say confidently whenever we are in foreign lands. We scream ''Malaysia Boleh!'' wholeheartedly in every occassion involving our country no matter what skin.
He trusts the people, he puts trust in his country. He builds a great Malaysia.
When he stepped down, the love for the country started to fade. People felt betrayed by the government. People didn't trust them even in good things they do. Barisan Nasional turned out to be a rotten and rotten brand.
It worsen day by day.
The resentment becomes hatred now. Patriotism is no longer something valuable. Nationalism suddenly has to be reminded. Racism rises up. People are crying out there --- demanding for a new leader who can unite them all instead of being evolved in the state of polarization.
I might be wrong. It just my point of view about my beloved country. I have my right to write my mind.
Well, this is my land, our land. We were born here, live here and most probably will die here too. Our future generation will inherit every mishap from the past, from ignorant us.
Yes, I will sacrifice myself to defend this soil but not, not to this kleptocratic leader who believes cash is king.
It is heart-breaking to even think about it.
