Star Online August 20th 2011 reported that Perkasa Information Chief Ruslan Kassim has labelled Marina Mahathir as ‘mudah lupa’ merely for differing in views with that of her father Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed regarding the Bersih rally. While we are yet to hear a single statement from Tun Dr. Mahathir to labelled her daughter as ‘mudah lupa’, here we have Ruslan to drag Tun Dr. Mahathir to his rescue.
I have been told that Tun Dr. Mahathir is himself a controversial figure and has all along been a subject of criticism from his detractors. So if Marina Mahathir’s view is so different from that of her father, I see no contradiction, but rather an acceptable fact that her father could willingly accept. I think Marina Mahathir has been making a lot of differing statements all these years, if one cares to read her blog. But why has Ruslan to raise this issue now. Is he trying to place a wedge between Tun Dr. Mahathir and Marina Mahathir? This is typical of Perkasa when they have lost out over an issue, and the Bersih rally is one fine example of them having chicken out after some boisterous statements by their hero.
Not satisfied at having to drag Tun Dr. Mahathir to Perkasa’s cause, Ruslan now dared Marina Mahathir to declare her assets. My question to Ruslan is for what reason does he wants Marina Mahathir to declare her assets? I think Ruslan is just being stupid. Before Marina Mahathir declares her assets, Ruslan might want to ask all the cabinet ministers to declare their assets first, if he dares. It is not only the cabinet ministers but also to all the top BN leaders including him.
I dare you Ruslan and if you do not do it, will you just shut up and start thinking of how to improve the badly dented image of Perkasa.
