KUALA LUMPUR: Pas pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Ab­dul Hadi Awang, who is re­cov­er­ing at the Na­tional Heart In­sti­tute (IJN) from a heart valve re­place­ment surgery on Mon­day, had a spe­cial vis­i­tor yes­ter­day.

It was none other than Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak.

“Man­aged to visit Tuan Guru Haji Hadi at IJN this morn­ing,” the prime min­is­ter said in a Face­book post yes­ter­day.

Na­jib spent 15 min­utes at IJN, and met the Pas pres­i­dent’s fam­ily mem­bers as well as the doc­tors who were treat­ing him.

“Al­ham­dulil­lah, the surgery went smoothly. He is now re­cov­er­ing,” he said.

Na­jib also called on the peo­ple to pray for Hadi’s quick re­cov­ery and for Al­lah’s pro­tec­tion.

Hadi un­der­went a three-hour heart surgery per­formed by a panel of doc­tors led by IJN chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer and se­nior con­sul­tant car­dio­tho­racic sur­geon Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Azhari Yakub, car­dio­tho­racic surgery head Datuk Seri Dr Jef­frey Jeswant Dil­lon and anaes­the­si­ol­ogy depart­ment deputy head Datuk Dr Suhaini Kadi­man.

IJN, in a state­ment on Tues­day, said Hadi had been hav­ing in­creas­ing symp­toms due to a leak­ing heart valve that had af­fected his daily ac­tiv­i­ties and was ad­vised to un­dergo the surgery.
