Zaid: Malays' fear of DAP is like being afraid of ghosts
Former minister Zaid Ibrahim has likened the fear of DAP among the Malays to being afraid of ghosts.
Zaid said he shared this with a Malay audience after being invited by DAP's Raub MP Mohamad Ariff Sabri Abdul Aziz to a session with the party's leadership.
"There were 40 or so Malays in a coffee shop, with DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang and several DAP officials present.
"I told the gathering that Malays were generally afraid of hantu (ghosts) but there was no real scientific basis for the fear, other than what has been told to them by their elders," Zaid said in a blog posting today.
Similarly, he said, what Malays knew about DAP were what Umno and former DAP vice-chairperson Tunku Abdul Aziz Ibrahim, who had a fallout with the party, told them.
