Johor Sultan - Mahathir

Sultan Ibrahim Iskandar of Johor has fired a broadside at former Premier Mahathir Mohamad yesterday, calling on the people to ignore old persons, who appear to have lost their mind.

In apparent reference nonagenarian Mahathir over, the Sultan Johor said politicians outside of Johor were jealous of his Bangsa Johor concept by claiming that it could cause division among the people.

“Doesn’t the unification of all races under one race create unity? Is it not politics which leads to division?

“Let us not bother about old people who appear to have lost their mind,” said Sultan Ibrahim.

Mahathir courted the sultan’s wrath recently when he disapproved the sultan’s Bangsa Johor concept.

Sultan Ibrahim rebuked Mahathir, 92, to shut his mouth then.
