Meera Alyanna Mukhriz says she's sad to see the "good guys lose" but is sure Allah has a plan for them all.
PETALING JAYA: Taking a philosophical view of the recent turmoil in Kedah that saw her father Mukhriz Mahathir resign as menteri besar, Meera Alyanna took to Facebook to pay tribute to the “great man” in her life.
Describing her father as a man of “integrity, perseverance and strong will”, Meera said she was sure Allah had a plan for them all.
“It’s upsetting to see the good guys lose but as someone once said to me, Allah SWT has a plan for us all,” she said of the political crisis that has since been resolved with Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah appointed as the new menteri besar.
“I know that you are a great man,” she said of her father, adding that although she did not know much about politics, she knew being menteri besar had been a “great opportunity and experience” for him and one which he “honoured greatly.”
“You were dedicated and you poured your heart and soul into your job,” she said, remarking how this invariably meant she only had a few hours a week to spend with him.
Writing about her father’s deep love for the state of Kedah, she related how Mukhriz would always encourage her to “check out local Kedahan artists and new locally made clothes.”
Meera also commented on her father’s love for football and how he was always excited about each match the state team played.
“So I would like to take this opportunity to say, you did the best you could’ve and I’m so very proud to be raised by you (and mummy)!
“And to Kedah, even though I didn’t get to say my official goodbyes, thank you so much for welcoming us and thank you for being so wonderful!”
