KUALA NERUS: The food court operators and night market traders in Terengganu will be required to halt businesses for 15 minutes during Maghrib prayers beginning next year, says a state exco member.

State Entrepreneurship, Micro-Industry and Hawkers’ Affairs Com­mittee chairman Mohd Nurkhuzaini A Rahman said the move would be implemented in stages and only after the food courts and the night markets were equipped with facilities such as surau, toilets and place to perform ablution.

“This requires cooperation with local authorities and Air Terengganu Sdn Bhd to provide the facilities at the site.” — Bernama
