PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Jamil Khir Baharom will seek an audience with the Malay Rulers to discuss the implementation of uniformed Islamic laws in all states.
The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in charge of religious affairs will also meet state religious councils on the same issue from next month.
Jamil Khir said they would discuss Islamic laws which had been endorsed and approved by the Rulers Council.
“I am looking forward to the meeting and fruitful discussions with the Sultans and also with the state religious council officials,” he told reporters after chairing the Islamic Consultative Council meeting yesterday,
He said they have also agreed to the setting up of a co-operative for mosques to further strengthen the mosque institution.
“It will be implemented once we have the module from the National Cooperatives Organisation of Malaysia (Angkasa) which is helping us,” Jamil Khir said.
He said the cooperative’s revenue would be channelled to the mosques’ management committees.
