With God's will, the angels came to accompany my father's soul to meet his Maker at 9.40pm tonight. May he rest in peace next to Allah.

He is guidance to all Malaysian. He leads by example, and shows (as a politician), he was not there for wealth, fame and name. He was there to guide Malaysians.

With great sorrow knowing the passing of TG Nik Aziz. His good deeds to my father Karpal Singh will always be remembered.
Gobind Singh Deo, Puchong MP
His passing is definitely a loss to this country. I find him very intelligent. Beneath the soft image, he is a very sharp and intelligent man. Without him, definitely there will be challenges that we must face.
Liew Chin Tong, Kulai MP
It is a big loss to the country. He was a leader who was well liked and accepted by many. He was rarely attacked personally despite his views. He was also one of those individuals whom people found it difficult to disagree with it.
Wan Saiful Wan Jan, executive director of the Institute of Democracy and Economic Affairs (Ideas)
He ruled by example. His administration was based on the principle of his party, which is the true value of Islam and he respected all religions. Nik Aziz always looked at the bigger picture when talking about issues of public importance. He is a man of wisdom. We will miss his kindness, humour.
Tian Chua, PKR vice president
