KOTA BARU: Nik Omar, the son of the late PAS spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, says that he respects his family's decision to stop outsiders from visiting his father's grave.
The Pakatan Harapan candidate for the Chempaka state seat said that he had no problem with the decision, adding that he respects the sensitivity of the issue and his family's wishes.
"…especially Nik Adli's wishes," he said, referring to his third brother.
Nok Omar told this to reporters during a meet-and-greet session with Pakatan chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on Sunday.
Nik Adli said that he made the decision to stop people from visiting his father's grave after a discussion with family members.
Dr Mahathir is in Kota Baru and was scheduled to visit Nik Abdul Aziz's grave.
On Saturday (May 5), Dr Mahathir visited the grave of former PAS president Datuk Fadzil Noor in Kedah.
In his speech, Nik Omar said any matters revolving around his family would be discussed after the GE14.
"At this point, I cannot even bring people to visit my father's grave," Nik Omar said.
Nik Abduh is the PAS candidate for the Bachok parliamentary seat and has expressed disappointment with his brother Nik Omar joining Parti Amanah Negara, which is contrary to their mother's advice not to join a rival party of PAS.
