His thoughts on lowering the voting age to 18 are:

He thinks by doing so Malaysian millennials cannot be sidelined in the Malaysian political scene anymore, this also means the youth voter block becomes bigger and stronger. Which will help youngster's to choose a better government and a voice which can be heard.

If you met me five years ago, I'm like a totally different person. I could speak English but my English wasn't good. I never got As for my English papers and English papers in Malaysia are not difficult. My knowledge was shit. I thought Africa was a country, Egypt was a continent. I still remember pronouncing recipe as "reh-sip."

I am not proud of my past. I was a racist. I was an Islamic radical because I would actually say if you do not pray, you would go to hell and burn in hell. Like I'll only mingle with Muslims. People always say oh no, this person is racist or a radical and cannot be changed. No, no, no, I was exactly that and I have changed.
