PM donates 35 cows to 11 Felda regions for Aidiladha sacrificial rituals

ALOR GAJAH, June 11 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim donated 35 cows to 11 regions under the Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) for Hari Raya Aidiladha sacrificial rituals.

His senior political secretary Datuk Seri Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin said the sacrificial programme is one of Anwar’s initiatives to benefit the settlers.

“Each region received cows for the sacrificial programme, which is being conducted nationwide today, involving all Felda communities and the local populace.

“We can see the enthusiasm in today’s sacrificial programme with the participation of mosque officials, village leaders, and settlers… it’s evident that a spirit of camaraderie prevails,” he said.

Shamsul was speaking to the press at the Felda Madani sacrificial programme in Felda Tun Ghafar Hutan Percha today.

The event involved slaughtering eight cows and one goat, with three cows being donated by the Prime Minister.

Also present were the Prime Minister’s Department’s Felda Regulatory Division’s divisional secretary Datuk Azlan Johar, and Community Development deputy director-general Datuk Mohd Banuri Aris.

Shamsul said the Prime Minister hopes the settlers can draw lessons from the Haj pilgrimage to improve their lives.

He also emphasised the importance of cooperation and mutual respect among grassroots leaders in successfully carrying out the sacrificial programme.
