An Open Letter To Anwar Ibrahim [Part 2]

In case if you have missed the first part , kindly click here . Here is the second letter sent to him . Have a read.

Dear Dato Seri,

Yes I am writing an open letter for the second time. As you know, it is my way of venting frustration of wasting my 13 years of my life idolising you. To be honest, I am not surprised you have not replied to me as I know that you would ignore any criticism levelled at you since I am sure you strongly believe you are a messiah. To me personally, you are just a mess.


I tried refraining from calling you a chameleon many times but your latest statement in the Sydney Harrold makes me change my stand on this issue. How can you go for a rally, shamelessly cry that Lynas wont be given a licence to operare and then flip flop your stand. Why is it that it is hard for you to have a consistent stand? You are bringing the term “ Do what the Romans do in Rome to a whole new level ”.

You seemingly are an Indian warrior when you are with the Indian community, a Malay imam scholar when you are engaging them and a Chinese economist when discussing with the community. I can state various instances where you have exhibited chameleon like qualities but I do not intend to dedicate much time to it as I feel the rakyat themselves can rewind to themselves to such instances.

Con Artist

I do not care what was given to the Indian community in Buah Pala. What did you promise them? Video evidence suggests that you said that if Pakatan Rakyat wins, you will not evacuate the village. Unless I have been in a coma, I am sure that Pakatan Rakyat rules the Penang Government and Kampung Buah Pala is no more. Even if compensation were given, doesn’t it prove the point that you would do anything to realise your dream in becoming a PM?

Your famed back problem is another one. You seemingly seem to be in a lot of pain during Court trials and I personally can vouch for that. However, when you are in a ceramah, you can hop around and dance around without an ounce of pain. How is that even possible? Dr Hoogland used his magical wand on you?

Freedom of Media

You are such a hypocrite. How can you demand for freedom of media now when you were the one who actually constructed steps to ensure it is privatised. Remember NST Dato Seri? The time you were taking on Ghafar Baba for the DPM post? I got to remind you all this because apparently you have such a short memory. You did not complain or make efforts for the independence of media back then. You know why? The media was praising you and hailing you. But since now they are crticising you, media freedom is suddenly such a big agenda in you cards. I mean how hypocrite is that. Just like how u spinned the PTPTN abolishment tale though it was your brainchild.

Debate with the PM

You see Dato Seri. The reason I adored you once upon a time is because of your oratory skills. I will be the first to admit that your skills are amazing and engaging. I admire them even to today.

But, for you to call the PM for a debate? It does not make sense. You were in UMNO. You became an UMNO Youth Chief defeating a certain Suhaimi by a mere 10 votes though you were just new to UMNO itself. I don’t remember reading you debating him or using any sort of democratic process to win the election. You won because you were Mahathir’s blue eyed boy. Period.

You want to debate the PM because it is what you are good at. Why don’t you challenge the PM in something which he is good at like fulfilling promises and having various economic reforms. I am even willing to write a petition to the Selangor Government now to get you a pay rise for you to think about economic reforms and not merely ceramahs. I am sure RM 1 is not at all sufficient for me to dedicate my time and effort for a job.

The conclusion here is Dato Seri, I pray no one becomes me. I adored you only to be shattered, disappointed and upset to have known the real you. You are a good politician, no denying that. But to some people like me, you were a hero. And you conveniently crushed it.

And before I bid farewell to you this time around, please stop acting like you are a reformist. A Mandela like figure. You were sacked from you post as DPM. You did not resign in protest or whatsoever like what a true reformist would have done. A true reformist would have resigned if whatever you claim about UMNO and BN is true now.
