Syed Saddiq: Those Who Debated Over TIMAH Issue Was Quiet When Najib Given RM100mil Land & Bungalowjessie tan
Over these few months, the debate over the local whiskey brand, TIMAH and the ban on liquor sales, as well as the ban on gaming outlets in Kedah have sparked controversy among the people.
Syed Saddiq has labelled these events as a “hypocrisy to divide Malaysia“.
The co-founder of MUDA explained that the same people who debated over TIMAH issue did not say anything at all when former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak was allegedly given a piece of land and bungalow costing RM100 million by the government.
During an open discussion with Critical Conversations yesterday (14 December), Syed Saddiq expressed his take on the “creeping Islamisation” as a reply to questions posed by former diplomat, Dennis Ignatius.
“Don’t blame the Muslims, or Islam. Blame those who masquerade as Islam’s defenders for their own personal interest, purpose and have been wanting to divide Malaysia forever.”
He also mentioned his take on unfairness when it comes to banning the sales of liquor in smaller stores such as convenience stores and Chinese medical halls in Kuala Lumpur.
“How is this logic and consistent when pubs and bars are still allowed to sell liquor at night? The big guys are always protected but the small guys are not,” he emphasised.
Saddiq also mentioned that he has always reminded MUDA and the other parties to not be afraid and fight for what is right.
“Don’t be apologetic. We fight based on data and science. They are the ones who hurt Malaysia. Confront them with facts and figures.”
You can watch the full discussion below, with the conversation on this matter can be heard on the 32:00 mark until 38:07.
Do you think Syed Saddiq has what it takes to be a possible future leader of our country?
