Dr M slams TMJ as ‘stupid’ as spat escalates

(FMT) – Dr Mahathir Mohamad today used his strongest language yet on Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, calling the vocal Johor crown prince who is better known as TMJ as “stupid”, threatening to escalate a public spat between them.

“This TMJ is a little boy. He is stupid because he doesn’t know what is happening. So don’t talklah, when you don’t know what is happening,” the prime minister said during a special interview with the media at his office here.

“I don’t want to comment on the Sultan, because if I say anything, that is not good. It is not nice because he is the sultan,” he added.

Mahathir was posed a question relating to Tunku Ismail’s claim that many deeds by his father, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, have not been publicised.

TMJ had said that the Johor royal family has been a victim of character assassination and unfairly criticised over the Rapid Transit System (RTS) project.
