When our Tunku Abdul Rahman was critical of Dr Mahathir Mohamad government especially with regard to the latter's autocratic style of governance, Mahathir used to ignore the Tunku's comments.
This was because he (Mahathir) was is in charge of the government and not the Tunku and rightly so. Today the karma is repeated. Having gone through the mill for so many years, he (Mahathir ) should take good lessons from his past experiences.
What good you did not do unto others then, don't try to do it now when you are not in power! Just as he ignored and ridiculed the Tunku, Pak Lah, too, can do the same. But Pak Lah being a very fair and spiritual man, remains largely silent to Mahathir's very crude and critical comments on his (Mahathir's) pet crooked bridge project.
Mahathir should keep to his confinement of elder statesman and advise in private if needed by Pak Lah. And Mahathir should be the last person on earth to speak on freedom of press. We all know what was press freedom during his regime.
And there are enough political and professional advisors both locally and from abroad to advise Pak Lah in terms of the economical development of this country and keeping its political stability intact.
Please leave Pak Lah alone. People of all races and religions have given him their best mandate ever in the last election..Therefore, let him run the country the best he can and he will certainly do it so for the benefit of all the people.
