The mother of Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate for Pengkalan Kubor by-election Mat Razi Mat Ail is upset with the opposition parties for hurling baseless accusations at her son

Habsah Ismail, 65, said such an action was uncalled for, especially by a political party which claimed to be more Islamic than others.
“I do feel upset when people hurled accusations and made personal attacks at him. He is a good person. I know my son.
“He is the backbone of the family, an obedient person and is interested in Islamic studies,” she told reporters when met at her house in Kampung Simpangan here today.
Prior to this, Mat Razi’s contender, PAS candidate Wan Rosdi Wan Ibrahim, 56, had questioned the title “ustaz” (religious teacher) given to the BN candidate, saying that Mat Razi, a former Tumpat district deputy education officer, did not deserve it because he used to be a civil servant.
There was also a blog,, believed to be owned by an opposition party, which claimed that Mat Razi had an affair with a former student.
“He came to ask for my opinion first after knowing that he was chosen as the BN candidate, and I told him, if elected, he should not neglect the responsibility and mandate given by the people, and to never forget his religious commitment,” she added.
She said her late husband was also active in politics before he died four years ago, although only at the village level.
“Our family has always supported BN,” she added.
The Pengkalan Kubor by-election is called following the death of three-term assemblyman Datuk Noor Zahidi Omar from liver cancer last Aug 20 .
The by-election is a three-cornered contest among Mat Razi, Wan Rosdi and independent candidate Izat Bukhary Ismail Bukhary. 
Noor Zahidi had retained the seat in the general election held last year with a majority of 1,736 votes, beating Saharun Ibrahim of PKR and Izat Bukhary.
