A recent Facebook posting by YB Dato’ Sri Alexander Nanta Linggi has left plenty of netizens in tears! The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affair (KPDNHEP) Minister uploaded a series of photos showing an elderly man rushing to come to his nephew’s aid. It’s understood that the latter had suddenly collapsed during the KPDNHEP enforcers parade ceremony which was held at Maktab Penjara Kajang recently.
As seen in the pics, the elderly man, Abdul Aziz Ya’acob’s slippers had come undone as he rushed towards his nephew, Nik Mohd Adhar, who passed out among marching officers at the ministry’s enforcers day celebration. He even helped the enforcement officer staying upright by standing right behind him. The Facebook post has garnered a whopping 8.7k shares at the time of writing (Friday, 22nd July).
Speaking in an interview with Sinar Harian, Nik Mohd Adhar revealed that the old man who helped him during the incident was actually his uncle. According to reports, he was raised by Abdul Aziz and his wife ever since he was a child. He said, “I’m an orphan. My mom passed away when I was only three months old, while my dad passed away when I was seven.” He further added that both his uncle and his aunt have treated him like their own son, and referred to them as Abah and Emak.
During the chat, Nik Mohd. Adhar also spoke in detail about the incident. As revealed by the 22-year-old himself, he had been feeling under the weather for the past couple of days. “Actually, during the time Abah rushed to me, that was the second time I collapsed. I managed to get up during the first time. But during the moment I passed out for the second time, Abah came down to check on me,” Nik Mohd. Adhar told the news outlet.
The posting has been flooded with plenty of remarks left by local netizens. Most of them were deeply moved by Abdul Aziz’s effort in coming to his nephew’s aid. One commentator told Nik Adhar, “Keep hold to this memory forever, Adik (Nik). Even though he’s only your uncle, he’s still like a father to you. Please take a good care of him.” Here are some of the comments that we found online:
