SHAH ALAM: Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari said 14 tahfiz (Quran memorising schools) have yet to be registered in the state, including one which was closed last year.
He said they risked being shut down following the state government’s effort, through the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS), to register 200 tahfiz.
“’The one that was closed down had 25 students and two teachers, while the 14 unregistered tahfiz face being shut down as they have been given adequate time,’’ he said when winding up the debate on the Address of the Sultan of Selangor at the state assembly here yesterday.
In another development, Speaker Ng Suee Lim has drawn up a detailed dress code for the Selangor state assembly members to avoid confusion when attending sittings.
He said male representatives must wear black lounge suits, while the women must wear a neat dress or baju kurung with a black blazer to avoid misunderstanding.
“The more detailed dress code is important to ensure the elected representatives comply with the rules,” he said. — Bernama
