HRH Tunku Mahkota Johor Speaks his Mind
As my humble advice for the Government, the first step in trying to improve the system is by removing the few ministers who are considered a joke. Our country needs intelligent ministers who can serve the people, not to serve their own pockets. I pray that our political situation in this country and the education system will improve for the benefit of the people…Do not let ourselves fall into the political games that will divide us and influence our minds.–HRH Tunku Mahkota Johor
Good afternoon to my fellow Johoreans, JDT fans and Malaysian football fans.I believe that yesterday JOHOR Southern Tigers posted a video of me saying ‘The smarter you get, the less you speak’. That particular video is my way of replying to some of my competitors and a few negative groups.
I would like to take this opportunity today to highlight some matters on politics, FAM and football in general.
When I voice out about politics, you have to understand that it is never about me. It is never personal. It is always for the people. I cannot deny the fact that I’m extremely concerned about the political situation in this country. The people have to get involved to make this country a better place for our future generations.
I care for the welfare of my people in Johor as well as the rest of Malaysia. There are some parties that are trying their best to keep me quiet. But being in my position, it is my responsibility to voice out my genuine opinions for the betterment of my beloved state and the nation.
When I voice out my opinions, it is not to create tension with the Federal Government but it is with the intention to work together to make this country a better place. I am not a politician and I do not need votes. I am just a prince who loves his people and whatever I say or do, is for everyone’s well-being.
As my humble advice for the Government, the first step in trying to improve the system is by removing the few ministers who are considered a joke. Our country needs intelligent ministers who can serve the people, not to serve their own pockets. I pray that our political situation in this country and the education system will improve for the benefit of the people…
I vow that I will speak up for the people not to create unnecessary tension but to work together and improve certain areas of weakness, because it is my duty and responsibility as the Crown Prince to serve the people of Johor…
Football should unite the people, not divide them. When you are divided and argue with each other on the social media, you not only let certain individuals run away from issues larger than the country, but also show the weaknesses of the Malay race. It is as if we prefer to kill each other than work together for a common cause. I need to remind all social media pages including those from Johor to respect each other. Do not let ourselves fall into the political games that will divide us and influence our minds.
To all football supporters of Johor and other teams, you must always respect each other and not focus on provocations aimed to divide the people. As someone who loves football, I wish all the best to all the teams in the country. Last but not least, to all my respected and beloved JDT supporters, the difference between me and some of my rivals is that I’m not here for popularity, I’m here to achieve success.–HRH Brigadier General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Crown Prince of Johor
