It is one thing to go and claim that the people are totally rallying behind the current PM but being realistic and going the extra step further in gauging the actual situation behind all this wishy washy proclamations of enjoying full support from the Malaysian citizens is another!
People in position and power often go into a delusional state of mind and usually choose to beguile themselves that all is well in the grassroots only to find the truth to be totally opposite to what state of mind that they chose to believe in themselves when put to a referendum!
The overwhelming landslide victory of three years ago for the incumbent would be a thing of the past if a referendum is carried out today.
Believing that one is indispensable and that without one's being in power and position, all things would come to a halt and the world would come to an end is an act of insanity and contrary to the reality of life itself.
When the Greatest Messenger of Allah, God Almighty passed away, the early Muslims were distraught and couldn't accept that Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam was gone and not alive anymore to guide them!
Saiyidina Umar Al Khattab, one of the closest Companions to the Prophet Muhammad SAW couldn't bear to believe that the Final Messenger of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala had died and he was distraught with grief and threatened all those who dared say that Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam had died and that the Muslims had lost their Prophet!
It was the Prophet's anointed successor and the first Caliph of the Muslims, Saiyidina Abu Bakar As Siddiq, who brought the Muslims together into being rational and accept that the Prophet Muhammad, God's Greatest and Final Messenger had died and his soul returned to the Creator!
His famous words to the Muslims present were :
'If any of you have worshipped Muhammad, then know that Muhammad is dead and alive no more! Those of you who worship Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, know that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala lives eternally and He is Forever!'
With that wise announcement, Saiyidina Abu Bakar As Siddiq quelled the confused souls and brought about a sense of acceptance to the masses.
Our present day, rulers and ministers tend to go into a delusional state of mind by claiming that without them, everything will stop working and that the nation will stop functioning!
Our present day 'Ulul 'Amri do forget that life is a series of adjustments and that if Allah SWT so wills that they were to drop dead just like that, there will be others who will step in and take over from their positions and that those persons too when they die in turn, will be replaced by others after them and so will the cycle of life go on till come Doomsday!
I am sure you all do remember a Minister saying ' If I quit, who's gonna take care of the Oil Palm Industry? ' Hehehehehehe... I know that many of you are grinning while reading this!
Well, same scenario here but with a different twist! Rulers do tend to think that they are getting a 100% support from all the people based on self delusions and also false information by those who have a hidden agenda in misleading the Commander in Chief and # 1 Leader of Malaysia Incorporated.
It might as well be that the delusion is so well perforated with all the latest travesties of justice being exposed yet denied and attempts to sweep it all under the official carpet of the ruling party's mismanagement are still being made!
History has a habit of repeating itself. Whether it be here in Malaysia or in any other country on Earth, the reality of natural justice will come home to roost in one way or another!
To the one in question, either keep dreaming or try to wake up to the real deal! Insya Allah!
