SHAH ALAM – Intan Maizura Othman, the wife of a male steward on board the ill-fated Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Flight MH370, held a prayer session for the wellbeing of her husband’s ‘soul’, last night.
She said all the next-of-kin and family members of the victim, Mohd Hazrin Mohamed Hasnan, should now calm down and accept this fact to move on with their lives.
“Before this, I had long been listening to news from various sources including MAS itself, saying that all passengers and crew members had become ‘souls’.
“So when they announced officially the fate of all those invloved, I decided to have this prayer ceremony,” she told reporters after the ceremony last night.
Around 100 family members, friends, and neighbours attended the prayer ceremony, which was held after the Maghrib prayers at Masjid Alam Impian, in Alam Impian near here.
On Thursday, the government had announced that the disappearance of flight MH370 was officially declared as an accident under international aviation regulations and all 239 passengers and crew members were presumed dead.
The Boeing 777 plane vanished from radar scanners during its journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, around an hour after taking off from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on March 8 last year.
It was scheduled to arrive at Beijing at 6.30am the same day. – BERNAMA
