Hudud for All, says Mahathir

Mahathir Mohamad (left) is nothing more than an empty vessel. I also suspect this same receptacle is ruptured. Anyway, this delinquent persists in making loud noises about anything and everything, much like a tiny tot who hollers, cries and screams just to get attention.

On Sunday, the former prime minister said hudud law must apply to non-Muslims out of fairness, in accordance with the tenets of Islam.

Of course, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang knows his stuff – he shot down Mahathir over this demand – saying that “there is a distinction between fairness for all and rights for all”. But I don’t think Mahathir understands any of this and so proving that he is not as intelligent as he thinks he is. Besides, the anti-hudud campaigner, MCA’s Chua Soi Lek will not dare to rebuke the senile evildoer.

I challenge Mahathir. If this brain-dead octogenarian really subscribes to ‘fairness”, then he should command Najib Razak to let Malaysians have equal citizenship, equal opportunities and equal rewards. I am sure Najib will balk at this. Najib knows too well that the word ‘fairness’ did not exist in Mahathir’s vocabulary during his 22-year reign as prime minister. He was too preoccupied with learning these synonyms, i.e. cheat, embezzle, defraud, fleece, loot, pilfer, pillage, plunder, rob, scam, steal and swindle.

This is the same Mahathir who had once said on a BBC program on capital punishment that: "We couldn't abolish the death penalty because that wouldn't be fair to all the people we've executed." This is an example of Mahathir's twisted thinking!

Chua is very fearful of Mahathir. That’s why there is no whimper from the politican-turned-porn star. I know Chua will not tell Mahathir off. But I am hoping Chua is able to summon a little courage to tell Mahathir that ‘fairness’ means sharing all his ill-gotten wealth with Malaysians! Then again, that is our money to begin with!

I have a dream. A dream when PR comes to power and the rakyat can finally put crooked politicians like Mahathir on trial and after that, throw them into jail for a long, long time.
