KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak described the late Tunku Laksamana Johor Tunku Abdul Jalil Sultan Ibrahim as a humble, friendly and approachable person.
“Innalillahiwainnailaihirajiun. It is with a heavy heart and sadness that I share his passing with Johoreans. The late Tunku Jalil was full of humility and ever friendly with people,” he said in his Facebook entry yesterday.
He said Tunku Jalil’s passing at such a young age was a great loss to not only the people of Johor, but the nation at large.
“To Allah We Belong and To Him We Will Return.”
“I was in Johor a short while ago to attend the funeral of the late prince. Let us continue to recite the Al-Fatihah and offer its rewards to him. May Allah bless his soul,” he wrote.
Tunku Abdul Jalil, 25, died at 7.11 pm yesterday at the Sultanah Aminah Hospital, here.
The prince was the fourth of six siblings and son of the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar and Permaisuri Johor, Raja Zarith Sofia Sultan Idris Shah. – BERNAMA
