KUALA LUMPUR: The President of Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan, Brig. General Datuk Mohd. Arshad Raji (Retired) urges the members of the public to gather and protect the former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad wherever he goes.
He said, this is very essential as he has been deprived of personal security and therefore exposed to threats and personal safety.
“Should anything untoward happen (God forbid) to the personal wellbeing of Tun Dr. Mahathir, the members of Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan will put full blame upon the national leadership and guardians of law and order and will demand an investigation to expose the failure of the government of the day,” he said in a statement today.
Mohd. Arshad also stressed that the association he leads has made a firm commitment to defend and protect Tun Mahathir and that no physical harm should befall upon him at anytime.
“We call upon all those who claim themselves to be patriots to make a similar commitment. One cannot be “patriot” of this nation if he or she becomes indifferent to the national leaders who had served the people, nation and the Rulers of Malaysia,” he said.
Mohd. Arshad regards the decision made upon Tun Dr. Mahthir as irresponsible and outright demeaning a former national leader who had led the nation for 22 years and had brought the economic and social achievements for the country.
The statement also alleged that besides the withdrawal of the personal security for Tun Dr. Mahathir, the personal maids were earlier withdrawn from his house. – Malaysia World News.
