PETALING JAYA: Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mujahid Yusof Rawa has apologised after his children parked his car in a bay reserved for the physically challenged, but said it was done for the convenience of his wheelchair-bound father-in-law.

In confirming that the Honda Accord in the picture was indeed his, the minister in charge of Islamic affairs explained that his children had taken their grandfather to a restaurant.

“They used the parking bay for the physically challenged as it would be convenient for their grandfather.

“On behalf of my children, I apologise for what happened and would like to thank those who have reprimanded me,” he wrote on Facebook.

He also shared a picture of him speaking to his wheelchair-bound father-in-law.

The Parit Buntar MP was responding to a picture posted on the social networking site which featured his car parked in the bay in front of a restaurant.

It is not known where the incident occurred.
