Subdued session: Lawmakers observing a minute of silence in Parliament.

KUALA LUMPUR: The Dewan Negara yesterday observed a minute’s silence and expressed its condolences to family members of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim, who passed away on Monday night due to severe injuries after being attacked during a riot at the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in USJ25, Subang Jaya, on Nov 27.

Senate president Tan Sri S. Vigneswaran represented the upper House in expressing sadness over the passing of Muh­ammad Adib.

“The fireman sacrificed his life for the nation.

“He was a true hero, a national hero. The sacrifice of this noble being for the nation truly makes the country proud.

“May the incident be a lesson for all Mal­aysians,” he added.

Vigneswaran also said he hoped that Muhammad Adib’s family members and staff of the fire department would be strong in facing the situation.

All members of the Senate then rose from their seats to observe a minute-long silence, while Muslim senators recited Al-Fati­hah. — Bernama
