A true Prince indeed!

Since the 1970’s, I have admired many of Tengku Razaleigh’s qualities and this report HERE reinforces my perspective of this regal leader.

For a man of his stature, background and experience, he could certainly throw his weight around but he has not done so. Such a stance reflects the depth of his character and values. Despite being a prince, Tengku Razaleigh demonstrates much humility and sensibility in his words that are carefully weighed and executed wisely.

While some characters are very petty and have no qualms about taking legal action against others for a variety of reasons, here is one man who is different from the others because he does not intend to take legal action against Bayan Baru MP Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim’s revelation in Parliament where he listed eight Barisan Nasional (BN) lawmakers (including Tengku Razaleigh) who had wanted to jump to PKR in its Sept 16 Putrajaya takeover bid two years ago.

I admire Tengku Razaleigh for his sense of fairness and wisdom. He knows what is important and what are the issues that are worthy of a good fight and what are those that are mere petty issues that do no merit discussion.

When G. Manimaran asked him if he would take legal action against the former Penang PKR chief, Tengku Razaleigh asked: “For what?”

Personally, I do not see any sense in filing law suits over petty issues for the sake of nitpicking or mudslinging objectives. It is a waste of time and resources of the country’s legal system. Such a process is both destructive and should not be used so randomly. Law suits should be filed when the situation warrants such a move.
