pasti ramai yang sudah sedia maklum dengan isu yang sedang hangat diperkatakan sekarang ini di mana ianya berkaitan dengan kebebasan rakyat untuk bersuara disekat semasa di bawah pemerintahan pemimpin terdahulu.
Ramai selebriti yang meluahkan rasa syukur kerana akhirnya mereka dapat bersuara tanpa rasa takut periuk nasi mereka disekat seperti sebelum ini.
Baru-baru ini, Ketua Pemuda Bersatu yang juga ahli Parlimen baharu Muar, Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman menerusi akaun Instagramnya ada memuat naik satu perkongsian berkaitan Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO) AirAsia Group Tan Sri Tony Fernandes berkenaan dirinya terpaksa memberi sokongan kepada pemimpin sebelum ini dan Syed Saddiq meminta untuk semua rakyat tidak melabel Tony Fernandes sebagai pengkhianat.
Unspoken hero- Tony Fernandes. . . I’d like to share with you something i have been keeping to myself for a while now. I couldn’t share it before because we were imprisoned by the politics of fear. Activist, politicians and businessmen who were not in line with the ruling party’s ideology were threatened and pushed to a corner. . . I must share this now as i can’t stand witnessing a hero get wrongfully accused. . . This is a story that many don’t know. I had to keep it a secret, but in this new era, an era where your right to speak is being uphold, it is time for change. . . This is about Tan Sri Tony Fernandes. . . He was among the first persons that came to the aid of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin when Tan Sri was punished for speaking truth to power. . . He was once again a hero when AirAsia offered discounted flights and added flights during the election period. This infuriated some people in DS Najib’s circle. It became worse when DS Shafie’s (WARISAN) team uploaded a poster thanking this move as it meant that more WARISAN supporters can fly back home to vote. . . It didn’t stop there. He refused to fire Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz after she spoke openly against Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak despite being pressured to do so. . . He remained vigilant. . . Those actions came with a cost and he has to pay for it. . . He was pushed to a corner where he had to openly declare his support for the then ruling government. He had to take a video and his staffs had to change their uniforms. Pictures of the whole event were taken without the right context. . . Please Malaysia, don’t label him as a pengkhianat. . . This story is based on my own personal knowledge. TS Tony has helped us from the start, but can’t disclose it to the public due to the fear of repression. I leave it to the Malaysian people to judge. . . But what I can promise you is this.. the start of this new era will ensure that your right to openly criticise the government will be guaranteed. You can openly endorse opposition parties without the fear of being persecuted. . . We want a strong opposition. So businessmen, feel free to support any side. We are now living in a new Malaysia.
Kesimpulan terhadap cerita yang dikongsi oleh Syed Saddiq ini adalah dia menyatakan bahawa selepas ini di era pemerintahan baru, rakyat tidak perlu lagi takut untuk bersuara atau mengkritik kerajaan kerana setiap mereka yang memberi kritikan tidak akan menjadi mangsa penganiayaan.
Nampaknya posting daripada Syed Saddiq tentang kisah Tony Fernandes ini mendapat perhatian ramai dan salah seorangnya adalah anak tiri kepada penyanyi nombor satu negara, Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza iaitu Asyraf Khalid.
Asyraf telah meninggalkan komen pada posting Ketua Pemuda Bersatu ini dengan mengucapkan terima kasih kerana bersikap terbuka untuk mendengar suara rakyat.
Dalam pada itu, Asyraf juga turut mendedahkan bahawa dirinya pernah diugut hanya kerana dia memuat naik gambar bersama Syed Saddiq di media sosial.
Congratulation to Pakatan Harapan & Tun Dr Mahathir for winning the General Election! Tun has always been my idol since i was a kid, and i almost can’t believe he actually pulled this off, eventho i know, if anyone could do it, it would be him. I must admit, I have UMNO close to my heart, i was born with UMNO, and raised with UMNO, but things have change, and in order for our country to progress, maybe we needed a change. Congratulation to Malaysian, because you made your voice heard. I hope that Pakatan Harapan will bring us a new hope, and our country will prosper and become the ‘Asian tiger’ it was previously known as. I’m excited to see what will happen in the next 5 years. As a Kedahan, i am extra proud, because before, we had a King that became Agong twice, now we have a PM that became PM twice. Congratulation Tun. May you continue to have a good health to govern our country. Picture was taken a few months ago when we visited Tun. @chedetofficial @syedsaddiq. Swipe left to see @arifjiwaasyraf with Tun.
Katanya lagi, dia diberi amaran untuk tidak menunjukkan sokongan secara terbuka kepada Syed Saddiq kerana jika tidak sesuatu yang buruk akan berlaku.
