A ‘crook’ as defined in the Oxford Advance Learner’s Dictionary, is ‘a person who is habitually dishonest’. That was what the Minister in the PM’s Department Nazri Abdul Aziz described Suhakam Chairman Tan Sri Abu Talib Othman, former IGP Tun Hanif Omar and former PM Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed. And for whatever be the reason for Nazri to use such a description of the three persons mentioned, it is unacceptable, disrespectful, silly and rude.
Nazri does not seem to realize that the three persons are personalities that have contributed so much for the nation, and have been duly honoured with honorific titles by the King for their tireless and loyal contribution. Nazri’s standing on the other hand is nothing near to either of the three persons, and the least that I can say of Nazri is that he is merely UMNO’s cheer leader in parliament.
Let me say this to Nazri that Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamed, Tun Hanif Omar and Tan Sri Abu Talib Osman are no crooks, and it is you who should take a peek at the mirror to recognized who the bigger crook is, and you will see that it is non other than you…… Nazri. I am quite sure you do not like to be described a bigger crook…..do you?
I too am a retired government servant, but if you say to me to just nod at everything the government does; be they good or bad, and to shut my mouth, you are totally mistaken. If anything that is wrong with UMNO/BN today, the blame is on you.
