Malaysian Furious That Nurulhidayah Uses Her Daughter To Defend Zahid – Why Is She Teaching Her Daughter To Hate, Revenge And Spite?

Parents were furious that Nurulhidayah would use her daughter to defend Zahid, who had been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and charged with criminal breach of trust, corruption and money laundering in a total of 45 charges. Nurulhidayah’s defence of her father was commendable, but her use of her daughter is indefensible. She should have shielded her daughter from the public eye instead of making her the target of stalkers on the internet. Little Sofee, sitting without a seatbelt in the backseat of the car, leans forward and records a threat to the public. In almost perfect English – something which her grandfather was apparently unable to master – she said: “I will make your life unpeaceful, I will make you regret your life.” No child issues threats like that, so it is probably safe to assume that her mother schooled her on how to warn the public. After all, the clip ended up on Nurulhidayah’s Instagram account. Why is she teaching her daughter to be full of hate, revenge and spite? It is also curious that the message was delivered in English. Which section of the community was the intended target? Or does Zahid’s granddaughter have a poor grasp of Malay? What will Nurulhidayah tell her daughter if the charges against granddad are proven in court? One can only imagine the child’s devastation. Has her mother thought about the reaction from other children at school or in the neighbourhood? Nurulhidayah accused the main players in the Reformasi movement of failing to defend her father. She asked why Anwar Ibrahim, Hishamuddin Rais and Nurul Izzah Anwar did not come to Zahid’s defence. Is she aware that Reformasi is about bringing justice to the people and righting the wrongs committed by Umno? Moreover, Zahid abandoned the movement and hopped onto the bandwagon of former prime minister Najib Razak, who himself has been slapped with criminal charges in court. She may also recall that a few years ago, her father as the deputy prime minister prevented Anwar’s family from visiting him in jail during Hari Raya. Why would Nurul Izzah feel any compassion for her? Little Sofee’s message ends with: “I will make you regret your life. Remember – I am only nine years old, and I am my country’s future.” These are the words of a bully. Are these her own words or those of her mother? Is Nurulhidayah using her child to fight her political battles? There is a history of children being “weaponised” for use in various political battles or to court sympathy from members of the public. The Nazis used children in their Aryan propaganda, dressing them in the uniforms of Hitler’s Youth. In the Middle East, they are dressed in mock suicide bomber outfits to sell their parents’ warped ideology to the world. Politicians use their children in photo shoots to drive home a particular message, and then get upset when members of the public turn on them for exploiting minors. Former British prime minister Tony Blair was hounded by opposition politicians and the public for using his children in photo shoots to advance a particular cause. In 2014, Najib used the four children of the jailed Malaysian tourism director to Sweden to gain political mileage at home. The director, together with his wife, had been jailed for beating their children. After months in foster care in Sweden, the children returned to live with an aunt in Kelantan, but Najib subjected them to an endless circus of photo opportunities as soon as they landed at the airport. Nurulhidayah has ruffled a few feathers herself. In 2016, she angered Malaysia Airlines cabin crew when she complained that they were “old”. The National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia issued a press statement saying she was rude and that her remarks were a reflection of her upbringing. The episode also brought negative publicity to her father. In the past, it was easy for Nurulhidayah to act like the lady of the manor. Her father was the deputy prime minister. But today she will have to try and behave with more decorum. It is the new Malaysia where rule of law is the order of the day. Source : FMT

Cyberbullies told to lay off Zahid’s 9-year-old granddaughter over Instagram post

Stop the verbal harassment against a nine-year-old girl who didn’t know better – that’s the message from politicians and activists after Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s granddaughter became a target of cyberbullying over a viral video of her defending him. The video recording of the girl “warning” those responsible for her grandfather’s arrest was first posted on her mother’s Instagram page on Saturday (Oct 21). It quickly went viral over several social media platforms, irking Malaysians who started hurling insulting comments directed at the girl. In the comments section of one news portal that featured the video, readers made disparaging remarks against the nine-year-old. “I ask that we stop sharing the child’s video. She is too young to understand what is going on and it is normal for kids to be attached to grandparents,” Yeoh said. “Adults should know better and not manipulate her emotions. The child is innocent,” Yeoh said on Twitter Sunday (Oct 21). Sharing Yeoh’s sentiment, Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar said: “by the same token, we each have to do our bit to reject bullying in any form whatsoever”. “Leave the child alone. Best to keep your nasties to yourself,” she wrote on Twitter. Selangor Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari said such negative comments against the girl, which was a form of cyberbullying, must be halted immediately. Child rights activist Dr Hartini Zainudin also weighed in on the issue, and criticised those who justified attacking the girl just because they do not agree with her family’s politics. “You can’t have it both ways — be outraged when cyberbullying happens to one child and say it’s OK to do so because you don’t like her family’s politics! Lay off her! You have no right,” she said.

    Very good, old man did the right thing. A good father protects his family. Put me in his position, I would have done the same.
