After being disgraced and put down for her decision to not wear her headscarf, she not only offered to help baby Ainul, the little 9-month-old girl with a rare germ cell tumour, but Dr Amalina Bakri also saved her life.
Taking to Instagram after a 5-hour-long surgery, she expressed the nerves she felt going into and throughout the risky operation, adding the relief she shared with Ainul’s parents when she brought them the good news that their daughter had made it through.

Alhamdulillah, Ainul, you’re strong baby girl! 😭 After about 5 hours of battling in theatre, the tumour (weighing 200g) was successfully removed. You could not imagine how anxious I was, whilst in theatre. Such a tiny baby, so delicate, so beautiful — “don’t worry baby, everyone is here to help you”. Because it was such a high risk operation, a lot of preparations needed to be done to ensure that baby Ainul would be safe. A lot of planning, a lot of scans, a lot of meetings and a lot of patience. The team included surgeons from various specialties (including craniofacial, plastics and head and neck consultants) led by Prof David Dunway and Mr Juling Ong (also Malaysian-born). They’re very experienced in their own respective field. I was very honoured to be part of the surgical team. Thank you to everyone who made this possible, it was a team effort! Ainul is currently being monitored post-operatively and she’s stable. When I stepped out from theatre and saw Ainul’s parents, I couldn’t control my emotions. It was a mixed feeling, such an emotional journey and an uplifting experience at the same time. Ainul, Wani and Safi are like my own family. Let’s pray for Ainul’s recovery. Thank you for all your prayers. 🙏🏽 (Consent was given by Ainul’s parents for this story to be on IG) @_nrlerwani @ahmadsafiudinn
Dr Nur Amalina Che Bakri, who holds the record for the most A1s for SPM and is currently a trainee surgeon at The Royal College of Surgeons of England, had earlier reached out to baby Ainul’s family offering to help.
She facilitated the arrangements for the baby’s surgery and was a participant in the surgical team that gave Ainul her life back.
“The team included surgeons from various specialities (including craniofacial, plastics and head and neck consultants) led by Prof David Dunway and Mr Juling Ong (also Malaysian-born),” she wrote in her Instagram posting.
“They’re very experienced in their own respective fields. I was very honoured to be part of the surgical team.”
Needless to say, Dr Amalina has set a courageous and generous example for all Malaysians to follow.
She’s not only paved the way for a helpless little baby girl to live a normal life but also actively speaks up for women’s rights and exposes suspicious medical practices on her social media pages in hopes of making the world a fairer and better place for others. (That’s more than I can say for most people.)
Dr Amalina’s Instagram posting has since garnered over 224,000 likes.
Remember, it’s not about how we dress, it’s about the good we give to the world. Thank you Dr. Amalina.
