KUALA KANGSAR: Barisan Nasional candidate Datin Mastura Mohd Yazid has forgiven former Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin for his remarks that the Kuala Kangsar by-election was divine retribution for Barisan Nasional’s toppling of the Opposition-led Perak government in 2009.

“As a normal human being, just like you all, those words hurt me and my family but I forgive Datuk Seri Nizar because I believe Allah will show the truth to us,” she told reporters at her in-laws residence in Bukit Chandan on Thursday.

The Kuala Kangsar parliamentary seat fell vacant following the death of her husband Datuk Wan Mohammad Khai-ril Anuar Wan Ahmad, who was also the Malaysian Palm Oil Board chairman.

He was among six killed in the helicopter crash on May 5 after departing Betong for Kuching.

Nizar, who is Perak Amanah deputy chairman, reportedly said during a recent ceramah here that the by-election called in Kuala Kangsar was an opportunity to punish Barisan leaders for toppling the Perak government in 2009.

Amanah has since defended Nizar’s remarks, with its candidate Dr Ahmad Termizi Ramli saying that the former’s remarks had been taken out of context.
