TMJ reacts to Mukhriz's 'royal snub'

A video of Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir purportedly refusing to greet Johor ruler Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar and Crown Prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim has gone viral on social media. The clip has also appeared on Tunku Ismail's Twitter account. The crown prince responded with the clasped hands emoticon in response to Friends of Johor's tweet, which accused Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad's son of being arrogant. "The difference between two men, @HRHJohorII (Tunku Ismail) shook Tun M's hand but Mukhriz was too arrogant to shake SOJ's (Sultan of Johor's) hand at Istana Abu Bakar (in Pekan, Pahang)," read the tweet from the @FriendOfJohor twitter handle. In the 14-second clip, Mukhriz, who arrived at Istana Abu Bakar to pay his last respects to the late Sultan of Pahang Sultan Ahmad Shah Al-Musta'in Billah yesterday, is seen walking past members of the Johor royal household. Apart from Sultan Ibrahim and Tunku Ismail, others present were Permaisuri of Johor Raja Zarith Sofia and Tunku Temenggong of Johor Tunku Idris Sultan Ibrahim. Malaysiakini has contacted Mukhriz, who is also Bersatu deputy president, for comment.
