Together with many others, I watched the live proceedings of the Dewan Rakyat on 13th July, 2020 to witness the debate of the motion presented by Muhyiddin to have Ariff removed as speaker.

I am going to disregard the legal arguments that went back and forth, and go directly to what I felt was the heart of the matter.

Anwar, in my view, accurately described Ariff’s tenure as speaker as nothing short of exemplary.

In all the speeches, and in all the shouting and name calling, no one disputed this.

Khalid Samad then put it pointedly when he asked that those supporting the motion point to one fault of Ariff that warranted his removal.

This, in my view, had to be made known.

For what wrongdoing was this man to be removed from office?

Takiyuddin then laid bare Ariff’s sin.
