An article about former prime minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, which is purported to have been written by me, is circulating on social media and WhatsApp.
I do not know the motives of the person, or people, behind this fake news article.
Please rest assured that I did not write the said contentious article.
The piece is littered with derogatory comments and insults. It was race baiting, amongst other things.
More importantly, the said article did not provide a link to my website.
The article is not dated.
Readers who support my work know that the contents are not representative of my work.
My objective is to foster trust between the various communities and build a better Malaysia based on collective responsibility and mutual trust.
The contentious article merely divides Malaysians further.
Please stop circulating and sharing the said contentious article.
