Yes, Tun Dr. Mahathir, you are absolutely right in saying, “Muslims in the country should be concerned about the plight of those in need of assistance to avoid the possibility of a deviation in their faith. If no one looks after them and they are in difficulty, they may become attracted to those who offer them aid.”
Although Tun just mean the Malays but Tun should notice that successive Malaysian Governments have ignored the plights ofBurmese Muslims and Rohingyas in Malaysia.
I am sad to see that some of the MyanmarPhD, MSc holders and Medical doctors have been accepted easily as citizens in Canada and Australia etc. Some Burmese Muslim andRohingya refugees were also accepted byWestern Christians. George Soros, American Jew and Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu ChiFoundation from Taiwan were actively helping them.

I am afraid that what Tun said about Muslims in the country should be concerned about the plight of those in need of assistance to avoid the possibility of a deviation in their faith. If Malaysian Government just show some mercy and accept all of them by giving ID Cards like the ones given to 30,000 Acehnese or thousands of Bosnians or IMM 13 as given in East Malaysia, will be enough for them. No need to consider giving refugee status or citizenship but just let them legally stay and study here.
Please read TDM’s concern for the danger of needy Muslims’ deviation in their faith at Malaysiakini’s, “Don’t be hasty to act over apostasy, says Mahathir.”
Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the government should not be hasty in taking action on the alleged attempt to convert Muslims in the country into other faiths.
“It has to be studied first… at times the allegation is true, sometimes (it is) not true.
“If we are hasty in our investigation, then when (the action is) wrong, people will no longer believe us.
“Wait until correct information is obtained,” he told reporters after attending a breaking of the fast at Masjid Al-Ehsan, Batu 3, Kodiang, near Jerlun last night.
Also present were his wife Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali and son Mukhriz, who is also the deputy international trade and industry minister and member of parliament for Jerlun.
Dr Mahathir said Muslims in the country should be concerned about the plight of those in need of assistance to avoid the possibility of a deviation in their faith.
“If no one looks after them and they are in difficulty, they may become attracted to those who offer them aid,” he said.
Meanwhile, Dr Mahathir said the people in this country must choose the right leader if they wished to see Malaysia continue to remain ahead in terms of development compared to most of the neighbouring countries.
“If we choose the wrong leader, they (the other neighbouring countries) will overtake us.
“Don’t choose people who only want to become the prime minister but do not want to do anything,” he added.
