Who Is Ahmad Zahid?

He was introduced as Najib Razak’s successor when he gave a speech at the United Nations. He is bold, brash, and supposedly popular with the Malay grassroots, but presents himself as a far cry from the polished blueblood that is his (present) boss.

Local Malaysian media outlets, as well as reports from social media, have indicated that current Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia and possibly future leader of the country, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, had previously beaten a man half to death. The man was believed to be dating his daughter, Nurulhidayah, at the time.

On the 4th of July, 2007,  a businessman by the name of Amir Bazli Abdullah, aged 40, filed a report against Ahmad Zahid.

The reason? He claims that he had been punched in the face repeatedly by the Deputy Minister (at the time).

His daughter had moved in with him in September of 2005.

On the night of January 16, 2006 however, around 10 PM, Amir was filling up his car at a station next to a university in Bangi, Selangor, Malaysia. He was accosted by several men who threatened him and forced him to come with them to a “leisure club” in Country Heights, a neighborhood in Kuala Lumpur, the capital.

When he had arrived, Amir recognized the Minister with his son-in-law, the man who was married to the woman who had moved in with him.

It didn’t take long before Zahid’s men beat him to a bloody pulp, with Zahid joining in the fray. According to Amir’s account, Zahid had punched him square on the nose and broken it instantly.

His left eye, as the result of the brutal beatings, would not open. They took turns thrashing him. Bossman himself of course, chimed in, supervillain style, allegedly saying that Amir would “be buried” and threatened to kill him. Once they had thoroughly kicked his ass, Amir was then locked up at Zahid’s residence in Country Heights, on Jalan Batu Nyaman. He was released the following morning (the 17th of January, 2006).

Knowing this, are we ready for Ahmad Zahid Hamidi  to take the reins as Prime Minister of Malaysia?
