last two days around 7.15 pm when i was about to perform maghrib prayer, i was told by my father that the deputy education minister, Dato’ Razali Ismail has juz passed away. i was kinda shocked for i was juz planning to surf about the progress of MPPD (as written in my previous post), and, it was his idea.
it was told that he died while playing badminton at the aminuddin baki institute (IAB) in genting highlands on 28th of november. great condolence to the whole family…
basically, he had previously served as the director of institut perguruan kuala terengganu (IPKT),terengganu education director and the director of the ministry’s teacher education division (BPG). he was also previously the chairman of PTPTN.
well the death is a big loss i shud say. i didnt know him very well yet i highly admire him personally. he was a committed individual who was passionate about education and he had inspired over million people from all walks of life – of how education brings impact to the entire world. he tried so hard to bring education profession into the eyes of the world. wut matters more,i do admire every single word came up from him, too, how his sayings hve instantly instilled a spirit of being an educator in me.
i’d like to quote this from his speech, when he last spoke at wisma darul iman 13 days ago.
“ bila adanya sesuatu kematian, ramai yg kata kematian itu satu kehilangan yang besar. namun sebenarnya kehilangan yg besar bukanlah satu kematian, tp kegagalan seorg guru utk mencungkil potensi yg ada dlm diri setiap individu tersebut..’
still, he’s a big loss i must say.. an anchor who’s literally exhilarated by his job, his profession..and it cant be denied that a true educator has juz gone..
may Allah bless him. ALFATIHAH….
