BERSATU Youth chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman represented himself in extending an olive branch to controversial preacher Zakir Naik, said Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin. 

The youth and sports minister has come under heavy fire after sharing pictures of a dinner he hosted for the preacher after having earlier called for the Mumbai-born Zakir to be deported to India for playing up racial issues here.

  • Young man should see for himself now, he is not getting support from the party on this matter. What has he done wrong?

    Getting support from either the party or the people is essential to signify that one is politically correct. He is just slipping out of his path.

  • Not making peace, but for his political survival. He is hoping to gain Malay votes for GE15. He does not have the welfare of the rakyat at heart. Now we know what to do with him for GE15.
