Asri showers praises for Nik Aziz for Kelantan’s success
|Harakahdaily – TS,||02 October 2013|
Oct 2: It was a touching moment to see the two of the most renowned Islamic scholars in Malaysia sharing the same table last Saturday, both showing appreciation to each other.
Recounting the rare opportunity during an event to celebrate celebrities in Kelantan, former Perlis Mufti Dr Asri Zainul Abidin described PAS Murshidul Am Tuan Guru Nik Aziz Nik Mat as a great teacher for Malaysian.
“He is also a political legend in the country. No one can erase his glory in our nation’s history. Despite being pressured, discriminated, oppressed and being accused with all sorts of allegations, his government stays for so long, and no allegation that can implicate Nik Aziz in court,” wrote Asri on his Facebook.
Under PAS, Asri said Kelantan has become a public open university in uplifting the people’s maturity in knowledge and politics.
Nik Aziz stepped down as Kelantan Menteri Besar after 13th general election following his success in retaining the state for the sixth consecutive time since 1990, citing old age.
Asri said Nik Aziz’s decision to step down at his peak moment was precise and timely.
“I am happy that he let go his position in glory… I felt lucky to be with him yesterday, may Allah bless him with longevity and great health,” he added.
