Open Letter to President, Armed Forces Veteran Association: Don’t Ampu Corrupt Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak
by Dato’ Mohd Arshad Raji
I received many responses to the short write-up I wrote regarding an announcement to gather more than 100,000 veterans to an assembly in July this year, allegedly made by you at a recently held Round table Conference attended by the various Armed Forces Veteran Associations in Kuala Lumpur.
Why don’t Army Veterans do this to Corrupt Najib Razak ?
I am not privy to the reason(s) for the assembly, and the number of veterans to be gathered is unusually large. I then begin to question myself as to the purpose of the mammoth assembly, and it soon strike me to a rumour that has been going around of a possible GE-14 to be held anytime before the end of this year.
I don’t think you made the announcement on your own accord, but I strongly believe the announcement was prompted by someone high in the nation’s political hierarchy, and in all probability with selfish political agendas. I can only think of this i.e. the assembly is to propagate and influence the minds of veterans to support the current political regime.
The ruling regime must understand what the Armed Forces Veterans had stood for, and many had lost their lives, and many others maimed for the rest of their lives in defence of the nation. The ruling regime today cannot question the loyalty of the veterans for they have proven themselves to have served the nation and King faithfully, that had brought about the prevailing peace and security of the nation today.

The issues affecting the nation today are startling and there is now a raising concern that the nation of which we defended with our lives will even lose it sovereignty to a foreign nation if the present regime remains ignorant to this three central issues i.e. firstly, the massive national debt that is simply ballooning; secondly, the selling off outright large tracts of land to a foreign company on the pretext of joint development and thirdly, the willingness to allow a foreign company to further develop the sea ports of Malacca and Kuantan on the pretext to facilitate and improve commercial shipping.
Now, just tell me who is actually financing all these massive projects when we know the national coffer couldn’t simply afford it. Are these loans taken from the foreign company that will only be paid many years later? Were all these projects thoroughly debated and approved by parliament? Who actually proposed and approved the projects bearing in mind the nation’s affordability to repay the loans? Now let me tell you this i.e. that all these projects will have a long-term security impact on the nation and I just wonder if the Armed Forces chiefs and leaders of our police force were ever consulted about these projects. If they were consulted and had approved it, then I say they are all foolish and are equally ignorant as their political masters as to the long-term security impact these projects will bear upon the nation. One only have to read what is happening to Sri Lanka today.

Now, going back to the proposed mass assembly of veterans, I demand the purpose of the assembly be reasoned out to us. If it has the slightest political connotation i.e. to boost the image of our political masters to meet their self-serving political agendas, then I demand most sincerely that the assembly be called off.
