The passing of Nik Aziz Nik Mat, the late Spiritual Leader of the Pan-Malasian Islamic Party PAS, has left an enormous void in the party and the political landscape of Malaysia. Though his religious educational background was traditional and conservative, he was one of the more pragmatic and realistic leaders of the party, who transformed PAS into what it is today.
