Nurin laid to rest 

Nurin’s father, Jazimin Abdul Jalil has finally accepted his daughter’s death and she was laid to rest at the Wangsa Maju Muslim cemetery on Friday.

Jazimin Abdul Jalil had twice denied his daughter at the mortuary. He had yearned for Nurin Jazlin to come home alive.

“How can I wish for my daughter to be dead? When I went to identify her twice, there was no DNA result given to me.”

“My heart would not allow me to accept the girl lying there, battered to death, as my Nurin – not without proof,” said Jazimin at his sparse two-bedroom flat in Wangsa Maju yesterday evening after Nurin was laid to rest at the Taman Ibu Kota Muslim cemetery.

But in the face of overwhelming media reports that police had released the DNA result, Jazimin and several family members including eldest brother Jasni sought confirmation from the police about 10pm on Thursday.

“We owe her justice. Find her killer and restore justice to my baby,” said Jazimin, Nurin’s father. “These psychos who should be put away in jail. They should be thrown out of the country. They are uncivilised,” he said.The family’s ordeal moved the nation, but there were some who only added to the family’s pain. Jasni said that hate mail was sent to the parents via SMS, blaming them for letting Nurin wander off to the night market on her own. The 44-year-old company secretary explained that the family quarters in Wangsa Maju lacked space so that was why the children would venture outdoors.

“Please tell everyone, the family thank them for the tremendous support,” said Jasni.

“They lost Nurin, but painful as it is for them, they are comforted by the knowledge that others share their grief,” he said.

Reactions:

  • Tears flowed freely as hundreds of people who turned up at the Taman Ibu Kota Muslim cemetery here to bid their final farewell to eight-year-old Nurin Jazlin Jazimin. Even the imam, Mohd Aziz Elias Zahari, who led the prayers cried. So heart wrenching was the death of Nurin, the victim of brutal murder and sexual abuse. She was buried at the cemetery at 2.25pm yesterday.
  • Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the Prime Minister, expressed sadness and anger yesterday over the brutal murder of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin. “Nurin Jazlin’s case is most touching. I’m sad and angry,” he told reporters after chairing a meeting of the Police Commission at the Internal Security Ministry in Putrajaya. Expressing his condolences to Nurin Jazlin’s family, the Prime Minister said police were tracking down the murderer.
  • A Sabah women’s group is repeating its call for the death penalty against those convicted of brutal rapes and sexually assaulting children as deterrent against these horrific crimes. Noting that the killing of Nurin Jazlin Jaziman was the latest in a seemingly “never ending” series of sexual offences against children, the Sabah Women’s Advisory Council said there was need for capital punishment for such offences.
  • Social Action Initiative Foundation executive deputy chairman Tan Sri Robert Phang is offering RM5,000 to anyone who can provide information on Nurin Jazlin Jazimin’s murderer. “I am offering this money to anyone who can provide information leading to the capture and charge of her murderer,” he told a press conference at the Malaysia Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) office here on Saturday. He also urged parents to always keep a watchful eye on their children at all times. Phang also said MCPF, together with Wangsa Maju MP Yew Teong Look, will be holding a Neighbourhood Outreach Programme which will kick off there on Oct 3.

    Hi Rosli…

    Great to hear that u support this cause just like we do. We are very much in grief over what had happened to this beautiful little girl. We hope and pray that the culprits will be caught and sentenced to imprisonment as soon as possible. We also hope that the family can continue to stay strong and calm.
