Tun Dr. Mahathir wrote to Karpal Singh...
3 April 2008,
YB Mr Karpal Singh
Member of Parliament, Bukit Gelugor
Thank you for your letter.
You and my other detractors will never believe me whatever I may say. You are moved by pure hatred and I cannot respond to people who can never accept reality.
My conscience is clear. I have done what was my duty and I owe nobody any apology. I am sure you will make use of this letter to dirty my name further. That is your right. I think you are the most contemptible of politicians and individuals.
Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad
Many years ago there was one Kiai Mahaguru (don't really remember his full name) who lived in Selayang, Selangor. He was so mad with Karpal Singh and was telling everbody that he would slap Karpal Singh. Can't really remember whether the Kiai did manage to do so?
