Nazri Asks For Forgiveness From TMJ
On Thursday, 15 March, the official Facebook page for JOHOR Southern Tigers posted an update regarding an audience Dato' Seri Mohamed Nazri Bin Abdul Aziz, Minister of Tourism and Culture, was granted by both the Sultan of Johor and Crown Prince of Johor
The Facebook post, which at the time of writing this story has over 7.5K Reactions and more than 800 comments, the JOHOR Southern Tigers wrote that Nazri Aziz "came to seek HM Sultan of Johor's views and suggestions on national governance for the future"
JOHOR Southern Tigers' Facebook post, however, added that Nazri Aziz came "to ask forgiveness from HRH the Crown Prince of Johor"
The Facebook post didn't elaborate on the specifics of the forgiveness sought by Nazri, who in past indulged in a war of words against Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, the Crown Prince of Johor
Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, fondly known as TMJ, has often been vocal in regards to the political situation in Malaysia. The heir apparent, came into the spotlight back in June 2015 when he had criticised PM Najib Razak in a statement.
TMJ's criticism of Najib, however, did not sit well with Nazri, a staunch Najib defender, who had told TMJ to "stay out of politics".
"He should keep out of politics because otherwise, he will be subject to the same rule and we will whack him. Rulers and royal families are above the law. If you want to be a politician then say so, so we can hit you back for what you say," Nazri had said.
Furthermore, the Star Online had reported Nazri adding that the royalty should keep out of politics because "we are the ones protecting the royalty".
Reacting to the post in the comment sections, netizens, however, questioned Nazri intentions, calling it an act before the GE14
