Muhyiddin’s ‘mother of all lies’ irks DAP

G Vinod | November 30, 2011

Party veteran Lim Kit Siang lashes out at the Umno number two for accusing DAP of being anti-Malay and wanting to turn Malaysia into a republic.

PETALING JAYA: Umno deputy president Muhyiddin Yassin’s speech at the party’s annual general assembly yesterday was outright irresponsible and despicable, said DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang.

In a statement today, he also described the speech as the “mother of all lies, filled with falsehoods and racism.”

Muhyiddin, who is also deputy prime minister, had accused DAP of being anti-Malay and anti-Islam, adding that the Chinese-based party wanted to turn Malaysia into a republic.

“DAP does not respect our royal institution, insults civil servants who are predominantly Malays and makes a fool out of our community for the sake of power.

“If not, would they dare suggest that the prime minister be selected solely based on elections without being chosen by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong? What is the meaning of this?” he had said.

Lim, who is also the Ipoh Timur MP, challenged Muhyiddin to substantiate his claims that DAP intented to turn Malaysia into a republic.

“For the record, we never proposed the prime minister’s position be selected based on elections alone and without the consent of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. DAP always supports our constitutional monarchy and we have not questioned the sovereignty of our rulers,” he said.

Being a multiracial party, Lim said DAP is committed to the betterment of all Malaysians irrespective of race and religion.

“By making such racist and baseless allegations, Muhyiddin is going against Umno president, Najib Tun Razak’s 1Malaysia concept,” he added.
