I read with great sadness in my heart this poignant article in the New Straits Times yesterday which I am reproducing in full here,
BY SATIMAN JAMIN - 17 JUNE 2014
Satiman Jamin is the outgoing NST bureau chief of Terengganu.
He had just resigned from his post a few days ago for the reason he stated in that article.
He is indeed a truly filial son.
My heart goes out to him as his full story is actually really heart breaking. It was however not for me to tell it here.
I had actually first read Satiman's articles when he was a JB-based NST journalist.
They were very good, particularly the features and human interest stories.
You can just google his name to read his past articles.
I am wishing Satiman all the best and hopefully he will continue to write, one way or another.
May Allah bless him and his family.
On another note, it's unfortunate that the one and only pro-establishment English newspaper in the country lost another good writer as its circulation slides further down to below 100,000 copies per day.
Hopefully, the bosses of NST will soon find a way to revive its fortune.
