Strange days for Malaysian politics

THE old narrative of Malaysian politics was that Red Shirts leader Datuk Seri Jamal Md Yunos was the villain of the piece in the Pakatan Harapan “Save Malaysia” rallies. The Pakatan crowd saw the Red Shirts and Jamal as the ugly face of Umno and its Malay rights struggle.

The new narrative is that Jamal is the villain of the piece in Perikatan Nasional’s “Save Malaysia” rally. He and his party are now with Pakatan and are against Perikatan, which claims to be the defender of 2R (race and religion) issues.
