THE Pakatan Harapan (PH) government was brought down by those who wanted political power for their own personal gain, said former government adviser Daim Zainuddin.

These personalities used race and religion as justification for their actions, said Daim, who headed an advisory council for the PH administration.

  • You should have advised TDM 40 years ago..its too late now. He started the race and religion game and divided the people. Divide and rule was his political strategy to survive.

  • You are right Daim but unfortunately the PM at the time,TDM, not only did not take steps to solve the issue, but in many ways encouraged them to continue until breaking point. It broke the PH govt when it spiraled out of control. The 3Rs issue is a very dangerous approach to nation building and should be banned altogether. It is explosive and divisive and downright dangerous to the security of the nation. Selfish and empty politicians who are bankrupt of real ideas to propound to the rakyat play up these emotional but untrue issues to achieve their selfish aims. But they run the risk of emotional crowds running out of control. But of course when that happens it is not their problem. It is the problem of the unprotected, already highly discriminated minorities. Thats why the only way out now if to advised TDM to support DSAI as the PM candidate and everyone unite to support this. Then I believe there is a chance for a new dawn for Malaysia

  • Both of you Daim nullified the odds. Both were corrupted during your helming the government, so better keep your mouth shut. Were fedup of you both and you go to hell.
