It is either he had a change of heart or setting a proper send-off for Zakir Naik, but barely a week had passed since he was in support of deporting the fugitive preacher back to India...and now he is encouraging Malaysians to forgive and says "Let's Move On". Whaaaaat??
"No one in this world is free from mistakes. Zakir has apologised. I myself have made mistakes and accept it when called out on it," posts the Youth and Sports Minister on Instagram.
"There's no need to beat on our chests and make things worse. There is no need to insult and curse. Let's move on. The country needs healing."
(Well he isn't wrong there...)
As much as we approve of his initiative to bring peace, we kinda question his mental state of doing so...
It's like you pulled the trigger and shot someone, and shortly after...you say "he didn't deserve to get shot."
So can we say that Syed Saddiq still has a millennial mindset of "mouthing off" without thinking?
Still, his message to the many is pretty clear and we're applauding his "quick change of heart" to unite the people of Malaysia.
