KUALA LUMPUR: Fans of award-winning directors Erma Fatima and Shahili Abdan or Namron, have taken their hats off to them once again.
No, not because of their outstanding dramas of films, but their sensible and mature comments on the current political crisis that Malaysia is facing.
Yesterday, Tersasar Di Jalanmu director Erma uploaded a poignant message on Instagram which read "Semoga Allah berikan segala kebaikan untuk negara kita Malaysia".
Her message called on Malaysians to express their love for the country by praying for a quick and smooth solution to the political crisis, so that a new government could be formed.
And Namron of One Two Jaga fame uploaded a photo of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah smiling and wearing a brown T-shirt.
Namron's caption to the photo read: "Ampun Tuanku beribu-ribu ampun. Sembah patik harap diampun. Daulat Tuanku."
It indicated the rakyat's support for the King to guide Malaysia out of the impasse and restore stability and certainty to the country.
"Well said, Kak Erma. We're all praying hard with you," said Zaleha.
"Wise words, the most sensible take on the current crisis," said Hani.
"Yes, we must not take sides, we must get together and pray for a solution that will benefit us all," said Khadijah.
Maznah praised Namron's reminder on the importance of the King's role in running the country during times of crisis.
"Tuanku is the man of the hour. Well said Abang Namron," said Maznah.
"We are right behind you, Tuanku. God bless Tuanku," said Zakaria.
"Tabik Namron. Tuanku, you are the best," said Faiz.
The Pakatan Harapan (PH) government collapsed, following the resignation of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad after the pact lost its Parliamentary majority on Monday.
Following the resignation of Dr Mahathir as Prime Minister and Chairman of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu), the former PH component member with 26 federal lawmakers pulled out from PH.
This was further compounded by the resignation of nine Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Members of Parliament, as announced by former PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.
Mohamed Azmin and former PKR vice president Zuraida Kamaruddin were both sacked from the party.
Following the fallout from Bersatu and the PKR resignations, the pact currently has 92 seats comprising PKR (39 seats), the Democratic Action Party (DAP, 42 seats), and Amanah (11 seats).
Sultan Abdullah accepted Dr Mahathir's resignation and appointed him as Interim Prime Minister.
The King is currently interviewing all 222 Members of Parliament at Istana Negara to ascertain who they want as Prime Minister.
