Netizens beg Tun M “Enough is enough; please give Anwar 5 years to prove himself”

INNOCENT-SOUNDING Ashley Pang has pleaded on behalf of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim with two-time former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who is seemingly so relentless not to “let go” but rather to “fight on”.

“I always have high respect for you. Till today. But please let PM Anwar proof himself,” she begged in her comment to a recent Facebook post by Malaysia’s longest-serving PM of “22 years plus 22 months”.

“Let him have the liberty to build back Malaysia together with us rakyat. Give him a fair chance to carry out his duty. He deserve a fair chance without intervention. Please TUN.”

Interestingly, Pang found a supporter in Norazizah Abdullah who chipped in with some words of wisdom: “Agree. Give Anwar five years to proof (himself). Please give him the opportunity as you’re already old.”

In echoing Norazizah’s view, Pang added: “Exactly. We must be fair to him (Anwar). He is a human after all. Just like us. We must be fair to him.”

Whether Pang’s plea will be heeded or merely fall on deaf ears in the ocean of comments which has reached 1,300 barely two hours since Dr Mahathir penned his post entitled “I AM SCARED”, the plea would surely resonate with the wishes of majority of Malaysians who have started to see their respect for the nonagenarian statesman thinning by the day.

For context, below is Dr Mahathir’s latest rant (originally in Malay) presented poetically which a tinge of sarcasm that has been his trademark since time immemorial:


  1. What has happened (in recent times) …
  2. Makes me scared.
  3. Because in my homeland, in Malaysia, in Tanah Melayu (Malaya), I cannot talk about the problems of the Malays.
  4. Cannot even meet up. There is no place. All rejected (me). Got rejected four times “by the order of the higher-ups”.
  5. Wanting to launch the Malay proclamation without touching other races was deemed as sedition. I am scared.
  6. Can I use this social media???
  7. Will I be charged for sedition?
  8. My apologies if these allegations are false.
  9. If I’m wrong to complain about the fate of the Malays, that’s fine. I will no longer complain.
  10. The Malays remain poor as the country has been sold.
  11. It’s Okay. The poor don’t need a country.
  12. No need to do anything.
  13. That’s sedition. – March 30, 2023
