“M for Malaysia” is a must-see film for every Malaysian as it’s a powerful antidote to the recent barrage of fake news and hate speech to create racial and religious conflagration on the baseless premise that the Malays have lost political power as the May 9, 2018 historic change was a Chinese conspiracy to grab power from the Malays.

Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was the pedlar-in-chief of fake news and hate speech during the 14th General Election, utterly reckless of their divisive, provocative and polarizing character to tear asunder a fragile plural society comprising of diverse races, religions, languages and cultures!

Who will forget what Najib said on the eve of the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 when he said that there were no Malays at Pakatan Harapan ceramahs and that the tens of thousands who gathered to hear Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in the various parts in the country were DAP supporters “bussed in” by DAP, when the Special Branch and the various intelligence agencies of the government should know that in its 52-year history, DAP had never bussed anyone to any DAP or Pakatan Harapan function!

Malaysians would be reminded from the film “M for Malaysia” that the crowds at the ceramahs for Mahathir and Pakatan Harapan in the 14th General Election campaign were very spontaneous and representative of the Malays, Chinese and Indians in Peninsular Malaysia, exposing the lies and falsehoods – escalated in the recent barrage of fake news and hate speech in the last few months – that the change of government on May 9, 2018 was Chinese grabbing Malay political power.

Spreading lies, falsehoods, fake news and hate speech to create racial and religious tension and conflagration is now regarded as the only way for the thieves, kleptocrats and liars to recapture power in Malaysia.

Just as there were lies and fake news in the last two Parliamentary meetings that lurking in the shadows were “no confidence” motions against the Prime Minster, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, the coming budget parliamentary meeting starting on Oct. 7 would be no exception.

I expect soon to read juicy reports about non-existent conspiracies involving Pakatan Harapan Members of Parliament plotting to move a “no confidence” motion against Mahathir when the forthcoming parliamentary budget meeting nears.

In fact, the political opportunists and desperados are getting so desperate that they are predicting racial riots in the country at the end of the year. They hope that the “hothouse” atmosphere in the social media over race and religious polarisation would spread from the Internet to real-life Malaysia.

Every Malaysian should watch the “M – for Malaysia” film for this would be the most effective way to prove wrong the political opportunists and desperados who expect racial riots at the end of the year, for the film is an antidote to the lie and falsehood that the Malays have lost power to the Chinese in Malaysia.
