Farewell, Haris Ibrahim: Malaysia loses a towering hero

“Lawyer, activist and political blogger Haris Ibrahim – a true Malaysian in the best sense of the word – is one of the finest political activists the country has produced. Fearless and selfless, he has sacrificed much in pursuit of a better Malaysia for all” – thus wrote one commenter on a news portal last year.

There could be no better words to recall this legend, Haris Ibrahim, who passed away today.

May his soul rest in peace and may the mercy of God be upon him.

Those who knew this ‘soldier of moderate Malaysia’ will never forget him. Those who came across his piercing statements and moving articles will forever remain indebted to him.

Through his selfless sacrifices, pain and struggles, he put some sense into the country’s crumbling political landscape.

In a country that is being constantly punctured with divisive racial and religious rhetoric, the late Haris stood tall in giving us hope for a better Malaysia.

Such gifts of true nationhood may never be acknowledged by politicians – for people like Haris truly fought for unity and patriotism without greed in their hearts.

His passing must fire our hearts with renewed passion to keep fighting for the good of the nation. We need to prise our beloved country from the greedy, grabbing, plotting hands of corrupt power.

On a personal note: Haris, I will always treasure the encouragement you gave me to keep writing for the love of our country and its people.
