KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak should not be seen as weak just because he seeks peace instead of war, said Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak.
Referring to the call by Najib, who is also UMNO president, to all feuding UMNO members to unite and strengthen the party when winding up debate the end of the UMNO General Assembly 2015 here yesterday, Salleh said it took a strong person to forgive those who trespassed against one.
He said in spite of the harsh words against him and the hurt he suffered, Najib extended a hand of friendship to his adversaries when he could have easily embarrassed them by turning his back on them.
“Najib has shown he can fight and he can also be magnanimous and a gentleman, which is his true nature. Najib is prepared to forgive and forget for the good of the party,” he said in his latest posting on his blog today.-BERNAMA
