DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang said he is now being more attacked by the Chinese media than the Malay Media.
He said the extremist Malay politicians accuse him of being anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Royalty, while the extremist Chinese politicians on the other accuse him of having betrayed the Malaysian Chinese rights.
“At present, I am probably more attacked on the Chinese social and mass media in Malaysia of having sold out the rights, position and future of the Malaysian Chinese than in the Malay social and mass media for being anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Royalty,” he said in his blog today.
Lim denies all these allegations, saying that he rejected offers to become a Cabinet Minister when he was young, and he was detained twice under the Internal Security Act, only for the Malaysian Dream.
” If I want to betray my principles for justice, freedom, integrity and the Malaysian Dream, I should have done it fifty years ago in the 1970s when I could become a Cabinet Minister in my late twenties or early thirties and not wait until I am eighty years old! And there is no need for me to be detained twice and to go through so many hardships in my 55 years in Malaysian politics,” he added.
