Back during the BN era, Zakir Naik had not felt emboldened to say what he very recently did. In fact, Zakir never received this highest level of establishment support during the Najib administration either.
Since race traitors DAP have clearly sold out Chinese interests for crumbs from Mahathir’s table, what are the Dapsters now to do?

Previously Mama Dapster had pleaded, “Don’t change your country, change your government!”
Today the government has been successfully regime changed. And DAP has become an obedient lapdog that sits, begs and rolls over on command.

“Accusations had also been made as to why the Zakir Naik issue was left to the two ‘Indian Ministers’, Gobind Singh and M. Kulasegaran [to raise in cabinet]”, Kit Siang today admitted.
The latest cabinet meeting was yesterday as the ministers meet weekly every Wednesday.
By way of explanation, Kit Siang noted, ”the Malaysiakini report on Zakir’s unsolicited attack on the Chinese Malaysians came out only after the cabinet meeting”.
[Well, if only the Malaysiakini report had come out B-E-F-O-R-E the cabinet meeting, then perhaps DAP’s Chinese ministers might have bleated a tiny protest.]
Kit Siang further said DAP ministers and deputy ministers “are in office to serve the people” — also see news report linked above. DAP is not in office happily eating dedak, oh no, never!
“DAP ministers and deputy ministers are in office not because of the perks and privileges but because it provides them with an opportunity to achieve the national goal of a New Malaysia.” — Lim Kit Siang on 15 Aug 2019
DAP has long left the Zakir Naik battle to be fought by its Indian deputies. Lately the most anti-Zakir DAP leaders too have been coopted to eventually fall in with their party’s ambition of achieving the national goal of a New Malaysia.
Even DAP’s Ramasamy – the Penang DCM II who for the last 11-½ years has failed to be promoted to DCM I (job vacancy reserved for Malay politician) – has had to toe the party line and make nice.

95% Chinese elected Harapan whose chairman is Mahathir
Then there is Marina Mahathir, the media darling most beloved of Chinese Bangsar Malaysians, right on cue with her trademark virtue signaling against Zakir Naik.
This time, however, some netizens have grown tired of Marina’s usual virtuous posturing and they rightly told her to speak first to Daddy (see Malaysiakini tweet below).
Sin Chew in an op-ed yesterday decried how “Mahathir said Dong Zong was a racist organization … [and yet] … Mahathir has never said Zakir is a racist”.
In the same editorial, the Chinese daily’s Tay Tian Yan wrote, “After becoming the seventh prime minister of Malaysia, Tun Mahathir has never once talked with Dong Zong, and has indeed not said a good thing about it”. The Chinese veteran newsman added, on the other hand “Mahathir met up with Zakir soon after taking his office, and agreed to grant the preacher permanent residence status”.
Mouthing a lot of self-righteousness that’s full of sound and fury but signifying nothing is the stock-in-trade of the Bangsa Malaysians. Sadly this appears to be the case too with influential Chinese media in the face of Zakir signaling the popular trope of pendatang Cina balik Tongsan.
Lelong Chinese rights: DAP betraying base on the cheap
After 15 months already of the DAP-driven ‘Malaysia Baru’ false hope, let’s now take stock. In Dunia Harapan, DAP running dogs are only good to grovel and to fetch for their Tuans.
How is it that a non-citizen Zakir feels able and entitled to roar at the “tetamu Cina” who tumpang here, asking them to leave the country?
Zakir can after all only attain his current prominence with the solid backing of powerful VVIPs.
The emperor’s bidding is the DAP eunuchs’ pleasure to serve.
