Nurul Izzah's wedding

Over the weekend, "Anwar Ibrahim's":http://www.freeanwar.com/ eldest daughter, Nurul Izzah, 23, married Raja Ahmad Shahril Iskandar Raja Salim, 27, a member of the Johor royal family. They've known each other "since 1999 when they met in the UK":http://straitstimes.asia1.com.sg/asia/story/0,4386,188226,00.html. Considering the political nature of Nurul's family, i can imagine that this marriage will not be easy; i'm sure the groom knows that and i applaud his courage. I wish the newlyweds well.

I also congratulate the government's decision to "allow Anwar Ibrahim to give his daughter away":http://e.sinchew-i.com/content.phtml?sec=2&artid=200305100000, as is his paternal right. Certainly, as a convicted criminal still serving time, this was a privilege that the prison officials or the home ministry did not have to grant. But "they did anyway":http://www.tuscaloosanews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20030510/API/305100565&cachetime=5, and i'm pleased that common sense prevailed. Politics is one thing, but basic human decency is another altogether: don't let one cloud the other.
