JOHOR BARU: Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar expressed his regrets over not being able to hold an open house during Hari Raya Aidilfitri this year.
Johor Council of the Royal Court president Datuk Abdul Rahim Ramli in a statement said this was because the Sultan and the royal family were still mourning the death of Tuanku’s mother Enche' Besar Hajah Khalsom Abdullah on June 1.
“Sultan Ibrahim wishes ‘Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri’ to all Johoreans.”
Abdul Rahim said this in a statement uploaded on the Facebook of Sultan Ibrahim.
According to Abdul Rahim, it is a tradition of the Sultan of Johor and the royal family to meet the people during the Hari Raya open house.
“Hopefully, Tuanku said the gathering would be held in the years to come.
“Tuanku hopes the people will understand,” he said.
