Just a few days back, Malaysians were shocked at the news of Syed Saddiq being found guilty of corruption and money laundering. On the same day, the founder of MUDA vacated his position at the political party given his circumstances to avoid tarnishing the image of MUDA.

The matter was recently a topic of discussion in Khairy Jamaluddin’s podcats Keluar Sekejap, where the former Minister of Health praised Saddiq for having the guts to follow the court’s decision and vacate his position as the President of MUDA.

“He has balls,” KJ said.

KJ explained that as long as Saddiq is still in the midst of his appeal process, he still holds the right to be the President of MUDA. However, that’s not what happened.

“He doesn’t want his court case to pull MUDA down and tarnish the party. To me, that shows a man of principle,” KJ said.

Some Malaysians can be “violent”

The podcast’s co-host and former politician, Shahril Hamdan also weighed in on the matter by expressing sympathy to Saddiq’s fate. He then highlighted the response on social media to Saddiq’s charges, to which both KJ and Shahril said they were sad to see some of the responses.

“Some of them can be really ‘violent’ on social media. One of the Wakil Rakyat even commented and said, ‘Just whip him!’ He’s a Wakil Rakyat.”

KJ, however, did not mention the name or the party of the said politician.

“What has happened to our politics today, Shahril?” a baffled KJ rhetorically asked Shahril.

In the meantime, KJ and Shahril both agreed that this is not the end of the road for Saddiq because the founder of MUDA can always rejoin politics after he has served his prison sentence.

Earlier this week, KL High Court sentenced Syed Saddiq to 7 years of prison with a fine of RM10 million and 2 strokes of the cane.

KJ also said that it’s fine to dislike some people but not to the extent that you’re insulting them during their tough times. You can watch the podcast below.

The court’s order has to be respected at all times. What do you think of Saddiq’s journey ahead?
