- Much like Thailand’s bomb blast yesterday, Malaysia too is facing an economic sabotage
Much like Thailand’s bomb blast yesterday, Malaysia too is facing an economic sabotage, said Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak.
According to Salleh, economic sabotage is a powerful weapon in bringing down governments, even more potent than military action and Malaysia is facing its own form of economic sabotage done by those undermining the credibility of the government.
“The latest reports from Thailand say that the bomb blast in Bangkok yesterday was meant to sabotage Thailand’s economy.
“That was why the bombers targeted one of the busiest districts in Bangkok that would normally be packed with tourists and shoppers.
“In Malaysia’s case, they are going all out to undermine the credibility of the government,” said Salleh in a blog posting today where he also referred to attacks by foreign media.
He said that the foreign media have been engaged to spin stories in foreign publications and blogs about corrupt acts allegedly committed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, as well as claims of Malaysia being on the verge of bankruptcy.
“And to strengthen this allegation there are even efforts to attack the ringgit to ‘prove’ that the world has totally lost confidence in Malaysia.
“The picture being presented is that a lower ringgit means that Malaysia is headed for doom. They even say that Malaysia is amongst those regarded as ‘failed states’,” he added calling the act as treasonous.
He said that the act of economic sabotage is an act of treason and hence, the “traitors” should be exposed and face legal consequences.
Calling for an end to the treason, the newly appointed minister said that the country should no longer be allowed to suffer in the hands of those whose sole purpose is to satisfy their political ambitions by “ousting the government and grab power through unconstitutional means.”
