May 18th, 2009 · 11 Comments

Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad when attending the Bloggers United Malaysia (BUM) dialogue in Subang Jaya on May 16 told that his original domain name (and most of other popular top-level-domain extension) were “kidnapped” by other and he was not in the mood of making payment to redeem it. As such, he has no choice but to resort to as his blog’s new domain name (though the same doesn’t sound nice).

Tun Dr Mahathir has also revealed that there are more than 19 millions hits on his blog since the 1st day he started his blog on 1 May 2008 till 1 May 2009. This has created the most visited blog in Malaysia within a short period of time.

He further said that he turm to blogging was because his voice was shut down by the government.

Recetly Mahathir’s blog accepts advertisement opportunity. The advertising fees can go as high as RM25,000.

    Mahathir now blames the government for censoring his speeches so he has to turn to blogging to get his views across. Under his regime people got the feeling that if they talk to much they might be carcerated under some draconian law. Look what happened to Irene Fernandez when she spoke up for the poor and defenceless. She was hauled up and her life made misery. It only shows that there are unjust laws as there are unjust men. Let God be the judge for all the atrocities done. Any amount of weeping and grinding of teeth on this earth can never be enough for the perpetrators of such gigantic injustices. They will have to look at their Creator straight in the face and answer for the injustices done. It is not like facing some earthly tribunal where by mere nuances and body language you may be able to escape. Woe to the man when that day arrives.

    John. Pls read vernacular newspapers during his time before comment. As for Irene Fernandez, the she did it was wrong.

    I am currently a student at UPM doing my masters from Sierra Leone. I do heard about Mahathir when i was home but after watching his biography today i really admired him and hope we have such a great leader like him in Africa. I believe my current head of state is in the same direction, only if he could seek Dr’s idea will be great for Sierra Leone.

    Faizal, Rosleyn and Mohamed Sahr E. Juanah, all I can say is you hardly know the man you greatly admire. Any PM with such power and resources would have done as much if not better. Physical development is easy but developing a highly civilised society that respects rule of law, has high work ethics, believes in accountability and transparency, respects basic human rights, freedom of expression, you name it, were all lacking during the last 2 decade. If you care to remember, we were ranked the lowest in these areas, placed amongst the 3rd world countries. Admire by all means if you think that was a great achievement.

    Well …I’ve a lot of respects for TDM, not only for his far-visions making M’sia ahead of other developing nations…. but his humble approach… a good example of a true Muslim leader. The west may not like him but the world will one day realize the contributions that he made in shaping Malaysia a country role model to the entire world. May God(Allah) bless him……
