My friend, a Kelantanese, was shocked after watching a snippet of Tengku’s speech on TV1 10.30 evening news last Saturday. Tengku Faris read the text in front of him word for word. Malaysiakini reported it faithfully.
Raja Petra said that the speech Tengku Faris read out wasn’t his. That it’s just a case of the text being shoved to him. Let’s say that’s true. Didn’t Tengku realise what he was reading even as he was reading it out loud? If he was forced to read it, what does this say of him? Why did this Cambridge grad mouth the words?
Should we just ignore and sleep over it… This Tengku could one day be our king!
Nik Aziz has also come out and said that an Islamic state is inevitable. Ong Ka Ting was vilified and accused of ‘insulting’ Islam when he asked PAS to clarify if Islamic State agenda is really dropped or submerged for purposes of 12GE.
PR voiced their reservation (if not outright objection) directed at the individual making these statements. But that was just not enough to guarantee security of my rights.
Damage was done and my heart is broken.
