We are all Rafizis
By:Prof Dr. Mohd Tajuddin Mohd Rasdi

In this article I wish to impress that good Malaysians are all behind the idealism, the courage and the will of Rafizi Ramli from the recent PKR win.

This article is not about bodekism of a particular personality. Too many academics have indulged in personality bodekism that have won them titles of professorship as well as a cushy post as the PM personal assistant as an ‘expert’.

This article is too send a clear message to two groups of people that we Malaysians are behind the likes of Rafizi, Syed Sadiq, Nurul Izzah, Howard Lee and all the young politicians that will hopefully help usher in a New Malaysia of dignity for all, justice for all, compassion for all and prosperity for all.

Recently, Zahid called for the return of the Original Malaysia because he said the New Malaysia of Pakatan Harapan was a failure.

Well, sorry-lah Zahid, my first question is to which Original Malaysia are you referring to? The corrupt Najib-Zahid one or the cleaner Tunku-Tun Razak one?

If it was for the latter, I setujulah, but if it was for Bossku or any of that nonsense, well, quoting Tun M, poodah!

Let me illuminate for you Zahid what our New Malaysia that is alongside the ideals of the new crop of politicians spearheaded by Rafizi and company.

For the enemies of Rafizi outside or inside of PKR and PH, we the people want to send a clear message that we will not vote in anyone who opposes these new visions.

Firstly, the Original Najib-Zahid Malaysia is full of floods and hunger that have destroyed the Malaysian Dream for many.

The New Malaysia will ensure that all families can feed their children by using both the religious and secular financial resources of the country to them.

The New Malaysia will not sponsor million ringgit GLC personalities, will not sponsor huge architectural nonsense for race or religion, will not pay salaries of useless PM assistants or Special Emissaries that violate the Prophet Muhammad’s principle of non-wastefulness, egocentric attitudes or pecah amanah for the poor and the orphans.

BN has violated the three sins that the Prophet outlined, and we do not want that Original Malaysia!

We Malaysians will vote for hope and idealism, not the party. That must be clear.

In the Original Malaysia of Tunku and Tun Razak, the Masjid Negara was built on the donation of all faiths and good Malaysians.

Religion is about compassion, acceptance of others and according dignity to all.

In the Zahid-Najib Original Malaysia, religion was used to threaten others, to steal from Muslim poor and to insult the dignity of all Malaysians under the pretense of ‘moral ugama dan bangsa’.

The leadership of BN was steeped in the filth of corruption and sins of creating social and religious unrest under their watch.

Rafizi’s New Malaysia, which we the people support, contains the spirit of Original Malaysia of Tunku and Tun Razak.

We the people would also like to give a gentle reminder to Anwar and the Saifuddin group that we will watch very closely if the renewal of hope that Rafizi is bringing is in line with the majority of the PKR leadership.

Any shenanigans on the part of the PKR and PH leadership to hinder, obstruct or side step the new idealism brought in with the recent election, the people will not support those candidates of the Old PKR.

This means ‘ANY’ leadership personality.

Malaysians will no longer vote blindly for a party like PKR but will watch carefully the personality that represents the party.

We Malaysians will vote for hope and idealism, not the party. That must be clear.

In the run-up to the election, we the people will scrutinize every leader, including Anwar.

PKR now no longer stands for the original Reformasi ideals but is filled with opportunist ideals looking to grab political power.

Make no mistake, we the people will vote some PKR leaders out if they are not in sync with the new idealism and hope that Rafizi has brought in.

With the Sapura suit against Rafizi, the game of killing political opponents through the police, MACC and the judiciary has begun.

We the people will support Rafizi and his companions with prayers, money and media to send one single message: to sue Rafizi, is to sue ALL Malaysians.

So, I say, bring it on. The more the suit the more the popularity and the wave of sympathy that will overwhelm the enemies of New Malaysia.

Ayuh…let’s have the GE15 as soon as possible!
