A Twitter user @luqmanlong posted a clip where Muar MP Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman is seen being mocked and name-called by members of the Dewan Rakyat which went viral on social media earlier today (Monday, 13th July).
The clip in question was reportedly taken from a parliamentary session held recently, with former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad also in attendance. It did not take long before Luqman’s tweet garnered over 20,000 retweets, and counting!
Kau tengok lah bila orang muda nak berbahas betul-betul. @SyedSaddiq kena ejek, buat lawak bodo, kena perli dengan orang-orang tua yang jadi ahli Dewan.
Apa masalah orang-orang tua ni tak boleh bahas betul-betul ni? Gaji mahal rakyat bayar ni.
Bagi orang muda jaga negara la. pic.twitter.com/lAv8NDqf1P

According to Luqman, “When younger people Syed Saddiq want to debate for real, everyone ridiculed and made stupid jokes about him. He kept getting teased by the elder Dewan members. What’s the problem with these old men? They can’t even have a proper discussion over the matter. Your salaries are huge thanks to the people who paid for it.”
Scrolling through the replies, a lot of people seem to agree with Luqman. In this case, most of them slammed this particular group of MPs for their immature remarks towards the young politician. Others also praised Syed Saddiq for being professional throughout the session.
As a result, Syed Saddiq and parliament have become trending topics on social media, following massive buzz from internet users across the nation. For those interested, check out some of the tweets left by netizens below:
