Dr Mahathir dare to Nazri: Resign from ‘racist’ Umno!

KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has challenged Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz to resign from the ‘racist party’ Umno.

The former prime minister said Nazri “belongs to a party that is only meant for the Malays and no one else can join in.”

“He is a member of a racist party and he is anti-racist so he should just resign from Umno,” Dr Mahathir said after giving a keynote address at a seminar on Malaysia-Indonesia economic cooperation.

Dr Mahathir was responding to Nazri’s comment that he (Dr Mahathir) ‘is a racist for defending the National Civics Bureau (NCB training modules.’

“(He) must be right if he said so,” said Dr Mahathir.

“I must be a racist if Nazri says I am racist. Don’t ever say that I am not. He knows everything,” he added.

Dr Mahathir had previously said criticisms against the NCB modules were exaggerated.

The course, he said, should be retained as it taught valuable history lessons and instilled good values such as discipline and integrity. Nazri however reiterated his stance yesterday that the NCB should be revamped as patriotism was for all Malaysians regardless of race. He said the syllabus should not focus on patriotism for one community alone. -thestar
