KOTA BARU: The eldest son of the late PAS icon, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, is barred from leading prayers at a mosque in Pulau Melaka here.

Nik Omar Nik Ab Aziz, who was shunned by his family for contesting as a Pakatan Ha­­ra­­pan candidate in GE14, confirmed he was barred from preaching and leading prayers at the mosque near his family home.

“My brother Nik Abduh told me that I am no longer allowed to be an imam here.

“He told me it is our family’s decision,” he said during a morning sermon at Wisma Tok Guru in Salor yesterday.

Nik Omar had earned the wrath of his fa­mily for contesting the Chempaka state seat against PAS, which he eventually lost.

“If this is the price I have to pay, so be it. I would not backtrack,” he said.
