“Shut Up” – Sultan Of Johor Tells Mahathir Over “Bangsa Johor” Criticism

Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been told by Johor’s Sultan Ibrahim Iskandar to keep his opinions to himself instead of commenting on the ‘Bangsa Johor’ concept.

Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been told by Johor’s Sultan Ibrahim Iskandar to keep his opinions to himself instead of commenting on the ‘Bangsa Johor’ concept.

The statement comes after the former prime minister commented that Johor nationalism is unhealthy for Malaysia, warning that it will eventually lead to the collapse of the country.

“It is a figment of Dr Mahathir’s imagination. He is stirring the hornet’s nest and my advice to him is to keep his mouth shut.

“He is going around dividing the people, including the Malays, while I am uniting Malaysians of all races, including the Malays,” Sultan Ibrahim is quoted as saying by The Star today.

The sultan said Mahathir had no right to talk about unity, blaming him for the division between Malaysians and other problems the country has suffered.

“Mahathir is the root cause of the present problems in the country. He has no right to interfere in my state. I will not tolerate his antics.”

Sultan Ibrahim said the term ‘Bangsa Johor’ was coined by his great-grandfather in 1920 to unite all races in the state “for greater cooperation, harmony and peaceful existence”.

“No race or individual was marginalised. He (my great-grandfather) has been proven correct.”

    Peace in the country comes first.
    If there’s any grudges between the two, please leave them aside for the sake of the nation.
    Better for both sides to keep quite and leave each other alone, for whoever is right or wrong, the rakyats can differentiate.

    With the HSR scrapped, someone is going to lose his balls. Hope and pray that Malaysia will be a republic some day.
