Alfatihah. A. Kadir Jasin, who runs the blog The Scribe, lost his dad just before midnight yesterday due to old age.
AKJ, who helmed the NSTP for more than a decade, has been in his hometown Alor Setar for the past week to spend time with his dad. At the end of his latest posting around noon yesterday (Tuesday), Kadir left a footnote about his dying father:Footnote: I thank sincerely the many debaters who offered their prayers and best wishes for my father’s speedy recovery. But he’s an old man. He’s 85 and there’ so much modern medicine can do for him. But thank you nevertheless for your kind thoughts and prayers.
