Hishammuddin: Nurul Izzah bad mouthed country abroad

By The Malaysian Insider 

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 24 — Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said Lembah Pantai Member of Parliament from Parti Keadilan Rakyat, Nurul Izzah Anwar’s criticism of Malaysia abroad proved that their struggles were not accepted in this country.

Hishammuddin, who is also an Umno vice-president, said that after being given the chance to administer several states, the opposition pact clearly failed to win the hearts of the people to the extent that it had to go abroad to explain their struggles pertaining to national issues.

“If there are actually problems in this country, why the need to exaggerate them on foreign soil…what is the purpose?

“Does it mean that their struggles in their own country have failed to the extent that they have to go abroad to criticise their own country?” he said when approached by reporters at a breaking of the fast and handing over of aid to single mothers and orphans, here last night.

He was asked to comment on the action by Nurul Izzah, who is alleged to have issued a statement that affected the country’s image and integrity in an interview with an Indonesian newspaper recently.

In the interview, Nurul Izzah is alleged to have spread false information on the new economic policy and to belittle the capability of the country’s submarines.
