Witnessing the love of a father for his son can be an emotional and heartwarming sight.

At a press conference on Wednesday (March 15), local director Datuk Yusof Haslam opened up about wanting his son, Syamsul Yusof, to return home regardless of the controversies surrounding him.

"At the end of the day, he's still my son and I love him. I want him to return home and see his wife (Puteri Sarah Liyana) and his kids.

"I don't want this issue to drag on any longer. Whatever happens in life must go on, no matter how complicated it is.

"At this age, all I want is peace in the household, not unsettled conflict. I love my children-in-law and my kids," the 68-year-old told mStar The Star’s Malay language news portal.

Yusof reiterated that although he was disappointed Syamsul did not inform him about his second marriage to Ira Kazar in Thailand, he doesn't harbour any hatred towards him.

In fact, he revealed that he prays for his son's well-being daily.

"As a father, I always pray for the best for Syamsul. I don't feel revengeful because I know young people have their own conflicts.

"I just want him to clear things up with (Puteri Sarah) and his mum (Datin Patimah Ismail). She misses her son and wants to see him back home ... to fix the conflicts that are currently present," he said.

Earlier in January, Syamsul sparked controversy after revealing via Instagram that he married Ira without consulting his family or his first wife Puteri Sarah.

On Jan 16, Puteri Sarah decided to file for a divorce. Proceedings for her application took place on March 7 at the Syariah Lower Court in Kuala Lumpur.

Following the court case, the judge advised both parties to appoint a conciliatory committee (JPK) in their divorce case.
