SUBANG: Fasting will not prevent Muslim members of the Special Malaysian Search and Rescue Team (Smart) from carrying out their task of helping the earthquake victims in Pakistan. 

Smart Commander Acting Deputy Supt Ahmad Zailani Yaacob said his team hoped that they would not meet obstacles in carrying out their task. 

He said this after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi sent the team off to Pakistan at the Royal Malaysian Air Force Base yesterday. 

Fifty Smart members from various agencies and non-governmental bodies left for Pakistan to assist in the search and rescue operations.  

Twenty-two of the 25 members of Smart are Muslims. – Bernama
