Dr M: 1MDB scandal even led Kit Siang to quote Quran

Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad last night expressed his amazement at how the 1MDB scandal had even prompted a DAP leader to quote the Quran.
The Pakatan Harapan chairperson said Lim Kit Siang, Gelang Patah MP, quoted verses from the holy book when attorney-attorney Mohamed Apandi Ali chided him (Mahathir) for criticising the latter’s inaction against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.
“I was shocked to hear Kit Siang quote the Quran after Apandi said he only feared God when discharging his duties,” Mahathir said during his 20-minute speech at Bersatu’s aidilfitri open house in Penang last night.
“This seems to be the best kind of dakwah (preaching) and we do not need to dakwah to Kit Siang. He has shown that just because of politics and Apandi ... he (Kit Siang) can read the Quran,” he said tongue-in-cheek, with much laughter from the 2,000 strong crowd who attended the dinner at the Long Say building, on Jalan Burma.
In attendance at full force were DAP and PKR leaders including Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, state PKR chairperson Mansor Othman, state Parti Amanah Negara chief Mujahid Yusof Rawa and state Bersatu chief Marzuki Yahaya.
On July 18, Apandi had chided Mahathir for being “childish” for daring him to swear on the Quran in a mosque if had truly found Najib to be free of wrong-doing related to the 1MDB fiasco.
This prompted Kit Siang to cite two verses from Surah al-Baqarah on what is right and wrong, while the other concerned the act of mischief on earth.
Apandi had dismissed Mahathir's accusation of concealing evidence of wrongdoing in the 1MDB scandal, adding "I don't fear Mahathir, and have nothing to hide".
Meanwhile, Mahathir ih his speech continued to challenge Apandi, saying: "He may only fear God, not human being but God knows he is lying”.
“The other one who knows he (Apandi) is lying is Bersatu’s president Muhyiddin Yassin,” Mahathir pointed to the man, clad in bright red baju Melayu sitting at the main table with Kit Siang and Guan Eng.
“Muhyiddin also knows Najib is lying as he was the former DPM. Since he was in the post, he was privy to a criminal report filed by the former attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail on Najib’s wrongdoing," Mahathir alleged.
“We can lie to people or to ourselves, but we cannot lie to God.” 
In January last year, Apandi exonerated Najib in the RM2.6 billion donation and SRC International issues.
He also dismissed claims by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) that 1MDB funds had been misappropriated.

While Apandi said the RM2.6 billion donation Najib received in his personal accounts came from a member of the Saudi royal family, the DOJ, however, disputed this.
The DOJ, in its civil forfeiture lawsuits involving 1MDB, claimed that the money had originated from 1MDB.
Najib has consistently denied misusing public funds for personal gain and said that such claims were attempts to topple the government. - Mkini
