Malaysia– Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad turns 93: Happy Birthday, Sir

Imran Khan

@ImranKhanPTI

Corruption of Malaysian PM Najib Razak was the major reason Mahatir came out of a 15-year retirement to win elections despite attempts by Najib govt to manipulate the same. Congratulations to Mahatir & the people of Malaysia.

Malaysiakini was four-years-old when Dr Mahathir Mohamad had stepped down as Prime Minister in 2003 at the age of 78.

Never did Malaysiakini, which was born out of the flames of Reformasi in 1998, foresee that when the news portal turns 19 this November, Mahathir would be prime minister again.

The medical doctor from Kedah, who would celebrate his 93rd birthday on July 10 has proven that nothing is impossible in the art of politics and that age is not a barrier to accomplishments.

Thousands of wishes have been pouring in since this morning following a posting on social media regarding his birthday tomorrow.

Malaysiakini‘s wish for his birthday is that Mahathir, whom Malaysians have entrusted to lead the nation once again, would not disappoint their aspirations for change and betterment.

On that note, Malaysiakini would like to take this opportunity to wish Mahathir Happy Birthday and present him with a short account from our journalist Annabelle Lee, who had just returned from a vacation to Australia.

‘Imran Khan hopes to hit a sixer like Dr M’

“Mahathir Mohamad!” Shrieked the Pakistani cab driver in Melbourne when I replied that I was from Malaysia.

The driver, who introduced himself as Murtaza, then rattled on for several minutes about his admiration for the nonagenarian.

“Imran Khan always mentions Mahathir in his speeches as well,” he added in reference to the Pakistani cricket-hero-turned-politician.

Keeping a close tab on the political developments in Pakistan in the run-up to its July 25 general election, Murtaza revealed how Imran, who is the opposition leader, and Pakistanis, in general, have been inspired by Malaysia’s 14th General Election results.

Murtaza is hoping that Imran who would be able to emulate Mahathir and convince Pakistanis to vote for change in the coming polls. Another cab driver in Melbourne of Pakistani origin, whose name I cannot recall, had also sang praises of Mahathir at the mere mention of Malaysia.

On numerous accounts, Imran has labelled Mahathir as one of his role models.

In an interview with a local newspaper, Imran referenced Mahathir to justify the need for a clean leadership to sanitise a corruption-ridden political system.

“This is why I give the example of Mahathir Mohamad, who changed Malaysia with the same political class by giving them clean leadership,” he was quoted as saying.

After Pakatan Harapan’s victory in the May 9 polls, Imran took to Twitter to congratulate Mahathir for winning despite attempts to “manipulate” the election by ousted premier Najib Abdul Razak’s administration.

He also accorded Mahathir’s return to politics to “corruption” by Najib.

  1. At 93, the Tun is Malaysia’s political comeback kid. I wish you well, Sir. You inspired men and women of my generation, although some of us may not agree with your politics. But we recognise you did things your way.–Din Merican

  2. I am simply in awe of Dr Mahathir and the way he moved back into Putrajaya should be studied in depth and made mandatory for anyone going into politics. His comprehension of Malaysian politics and political manoeuvring has no comparison not just in Malaysia but in the world. At this time there is no doubts that the battle has only just began for Mahathir ( what a statement to make for a 93 year old man ) but that is the reality. One man who had great respect for Mahathir’s ingenuity was the late Australian author Barry Wain who wrote the ‘Malaysian Maverick’. In his closing remarks to Wain, Mahathir lamented that people would debunk many of the things he has done but as he approached 83, he would not be around to see that. Well, Mahathir did live long enough to see it and fortunately for all of us was also around to help put things back on track again.
    Happy birthday Dr Mahathir, and may you live long and the country prosper again.

  3. Happy Birthday, Sir. Thank you for helping concerned Malaysians to get rid of MO1, the worst Prime Minister we have ever had.
    We must not only achieve “developed nation” status (in terms of high GDP per capita, and a dynamic and competitive economy), but we must also be like the Scandinavian countries and be near the top in terms of world rankings of social indicators.

  4. Happy birthday to our beloved father of all Malaysia And Malaysians
    May god bless you with lots of everything
    A lots of things happened in Malaysia 🇲🇾 and super hero came and safed our beloved nation 😀🙏🏼🙏🏼

  5. A very blessed 93rd birthday to the superman of Malaysia. May he be blessed with good health always . The nation is blessed with an individual who looks way ahead where nobody can see, thinks of new and innovative ideas when nobody has even visualized it. You truly are God sent.

  6. Happy birthday at 93 , Tun.

    People will also remember every second of your productive, long and healthy life is credited to your intelligent, supportive and dedicated wife, and soul-mate.
    It is an envy of most who wish they are as fortunate.

    Congratulations !

  7. On bilateral treaties and agreements – like on water and railway land matters – Singapore has always come on top on account of their superior tactical negotiating skills. Always keep a step ahead of your rivals is Singapore’s mantra particularly in respect of Malaysia. Often when Mahathir traces back signed agreements with Singapore, he cries foul and complains Malaysia has been short-changed. He has to live with his angst and bias against Singapore. Even physically he cannot challenge Singapore as the latter can transplant itself on parts of Malaysia with its far superior air power and technology.

    It is best Mahathir sees reality and move on to learn to live in peace with Singapore. Honestly, Singapore is no threat to anybody. It bolsters its defence continuously to protect itself.
