The loss of his eldest son Emmeril Khan Mumtadz was a heavy blow to Ridwan Kamil’s family, including his wife Atalia Praratya. Eril’s mother also shared her sadness through the Mata Najwa YouTube channel which was uploaded on Wednesday (6/7/2022) night.
While shedding tears, Atalia Praratya revealed that he had taken care of the administration of his son’s death, but he did not accept that his son’s name had suddenly disappeared on the family card.
“When we took care of Eril’s death certificate, we got the certificate. Then the officer said, ‘This is her family card.’
“I said, ‘Why did you delete (Eril’s name), just leave it alone.’ That’s what I weigh there,” Atalia continued.
Ridwan Kamil himself admitted that he did not know that the names of people who had died could not be written on the family card. But while joking, the negligent who is usually called Kang Emil quipped that the officer should have given a family card a year later.
“We don’t know the rule as simple as that. But maybe the officer will give it next year, hehehe. Moment of mourning, suddenly his name is gone. It’s not a problem, it’s just emotional flowers,” said Ridwan Kamil.
