A man of indomitable courage says this to a woman of the same (theedgedaily.com). She is simply “Kak Wan” to many, and doesn’t seem to mind if you don’t call her YB. With all that is happening around her, I can’t imagine how she manages to remain calm. In fact, if you stand before her, you also seem to calm down.
This is what Penang CM Lim Guan Eng says about her today regarding the conferring of titles on the 70th birthday of Governor Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas:
“Wan Azizah (Wan Ismail) was personally recommended by me as it is an appropriate honour for a woman of distinction who has served her husband, family, people and country dutifully and faithfully, always God-fearing and never wavering from her obligations to the principles of truth, justice, freedom and democracy.
“Her indomitable courage under extreme pressure from the entire machinery of the Barisan Nasional during her husband’s (Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim) imprisonment and her perseverance and tireless dedication to fight for justice for her husband and the downtrodden has lent faith and courage to countless Malaysians,” said Penang chief minister, Lim Guan Eng.
Her dignity in the face of repeated attempts at humiliating her husband and shaming her family’s honour has brought many Malaysians of disparate beliefs and backgrounds together, Lim said.
No, I don’t hate everything about Malaysia.
