Nooryana Najwa Najib, the 30-year-old daughter of Malaysia’s former prime minister Najib Tun Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor, took to Instagram to express her feelings over her mother’s arrest that occurred that same day. Nooryana wrote:

“I can accept taking action on a man who was in power but putting the women in his life in harm’s way is going too far. Two weeks ago you raided his mother’s house and today you remand his wife and plan on charging her the same day her husband is due in court.

“I suppose tomorrow makes for a great picture and media circus…. The dreaded call came in at 4am. Too sad to cry, too angry to scream, I just got up, took wuduk and prayed tahjud for Mummy. 

“I pray that Mummy remains calm and composed because knowing her she’s probably worried about everyone at home. I know she’s wondering – “How’s Gina taking it? I hope she still goes to class today. Is Adam ok?”

“Mummy, even if you can’t hear me, please know that I am fine. I will get out of bed and go to class and Adam will be patiently waiting for you on FaceTime. Please try to eat and get some rest tonight. 

“No matter how hard the circumstances are, I will always stand by the woman who gave birth to me, wiped my tears away when I was down, slept with me when I was sick and taught me how to stand on my own two feet. 

“In your words this morning mummy, inshallah, we will persevere.

Nooryana showed her dismay and deep sadness at the actions of the authorities who had arrested her mother. She also expressed wishes that her mother would remain at peace in this troubled time.

On Thursday, Rosmah was charged with 17 counts relating to money laundering, which involves RM 7 million (US $1.69 million) at the Kuala Lumpur Courts Complex. She pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Judge ordered Rosmah to surrender her passport and set bail for RM 2 million.

Meanwhile, Nooryana’s post has received almost 4000 likes. While several netizens slammed Rosmah, some commenters expressed support for both mother and daughter:
