On behalf of those who feel the same way........!

First and foremost let me humbly apologise for "re-printing" an article from Din Marican's blogsite on the subject of former prime minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad incessant attacks on the country's serving prime minister, Najib Razak.
I have always respected Din Marican's civilise write ups on many subjects which I considered as more intellectual rather than infantile in style.
In this particular open letter to Mahathir he is not praising Najib, but rather criticising the former prime minister's incessant attacks on the country's working, working very hard, prime minister.
Din is saying to Mahathir something akin to an adage: those who live in glass house shouldn't throw stones, and it basically means: You should not criticise other people for having the same faults that you yourself have.
This famous blogger dubbed a DJ Blogger, wrote something that many of us want to say or write but dare not for whatever reasons.
So here goes nothing:-

OPEN LETTER to Tun Dr. Mahathir Bin Mohamad

As someone who admires you over many years, it pains me to read about your political tussle with the incumbent Prime Minister, Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak, concerning his administration. It is also sad to note that our Prime Minister has not responded satisfactorily to issues you raised with regard to 1MDB financial affairs, the brutal murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu, the Mongolian model, and the management of the Malaysian economy.
Most of us agree that the Najib administration is incompetent, inept and corrupt. But there are some differences of opinion about whether he should resign or stay in office. Apparently, UMNO, of which Dato’ Seri Najib is President, is solidly behind him. Key leaders of the party including his predecessor, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the Youth Wing, and your critics in UMNO have pledged their support.
Najib is confident he can hold his own against your incessant attacks and those of pro-Mahathir bloggers like Dato Kadir Jasin  and  Syed Outside the Box, among others, that he can ignore you and allow his supporters to launch  a series of counter-attacks against you and your associates. You have been checkmated by a much younger leaders........Read further here!
