Wah ka ka ka! I actually mulled over it but decided not to blog about Dr. M’s latest
selectively amnesiac ranting learned opinion.
Dr M did not practise what he is preaching
HOW very refreshing to read the call by former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for Malay students to enrol in institutions of higher learning with equal racial breakdown if they want to gain a competitive edge.
How right he is that if Malay students wish to attain superlative academic achievements, they must compete with others.
I wish Dr Mahathir had preached and practised this principle when he was Education Minister and then Prime Minister for 22 years.
I remember how I was chided for being “politically incorrect” and “acting against national interest” when I had used the same argument in advocating that a mere 10% of non-Malay students be admitted into my university’s Matriculation programme in the late 70s.
DATUK SHAROM AHMAT,
Don’t act surprised, Datuk Sharom Ahmat!
Dr. M is a renowned hypocrite on plenty of things.
But you can probably get away with blasting him in the media due to your status, ke ke ke!
PS. Meanwhile, another reader complains about the price of imported cars… Another poke in Mahathir’s eye!
