“News broke that Najib Razak was arrested by MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission).
“I am among those who has critiqued him, but I pray that he is treated well as a former prime minister, his dignity and personal honour upheld.
“That is the struggle for reforms,” he wrote.

Saya antara orang yg banyak kritik beliau. Ttp saya berdoa beliau dilayan baik sbg seorg bekas PM, dijaga maruah dan air muka.
Saya berdoa beliau dan keluarga diberi keadilan sebaik-baiknya.
Itulah perjuangan reformasi.
