By FARIK ZOLKEPLI
JOHOR BARU: Slain terrorist Noordin Md Top’s wife was calm when she heard that he had been killed by Indonesian police.
Her father, Rusdi Hamid, 67, said: “We were always prepared for such an outcome especially after the last time when he was suspected to have been killed.
“We will live our lives normally as it has been a long time since he has lived with us.”
He said yesterday that it was his daughter’s wish for her husband’s body to be returned home to be buried.
When met at his home in Kampung Sg Tiram here yesterday, Rusdi, a trader, said his daughter and Noordin’s three children, a boy, aged 10, and daughters aged nine and eight, had lost contact with Noordin for about eight years.
“Even after eight years, my daughter still wished for him to be buried here now that it is confirmed that he was killed.
“My daughter and grandchildren had to live without him but thankfully they are used to the situation,” he said.
Rusdi hoped that the media and other parties would leave his family alone now that it has been confirmed that Noordin was killed.
“As I said before, Noordin left his wife and three children suddenly eight years ago.
“We will carry on without him,” he said.
Rusdi added that he had to support his daughter and grandchildren who are living with him.
