Ramadan bazaars, tarawih prayers allowed with strict SOPS — Ismail Sabri

KUALA LUMPUR, March 16 — The government has given the green light for Ramadan and Aidilfitri bazaars to operate during the fasting month this year.

In sharing the good news, Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the government also agreed to allow congregational tarawih prayers at mosques and surau across the country.

“After discussing with the Health Ministry (MOH), we decided to allow these three activities to be held in strict compliance with the standard operating procedures (SOPs),” he said in a news conference on the movement control order (MCO) development here, today.

On the Ramadan and Aidilfitri bazaars’ SOPs, Ismail Sabri said they include ensuring gaps between stalls, having different entrances and exits, taking body temperature and registering via the MySejahtera application.

The SOPs would be issued by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall and the local governments in states, he said.
