Dr. Mahathir slams TMJ as ‘stupid’ as escalating Johor-Putrajaya spat

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today used his strongest language yet on Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, calling the vocal Johor crown prince who is better known as TMJ as “stupid”, threatening to escalate a public spat between them.

“This TMJ is a little boy. He is stupid because he doesn’t know what is happening. So don’t talklah, when you don’t know what is happening,” the prime minister said during a special interview with the media at his office here.

“I don’t want to comment on the Sultan, because if I say anything, that is not good. It is not nice because he is the sultan,” he added.

Mahathir was responding to a question relating to Tunku Ismail’s claim that many deeds by his father, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, have not been publicised.
