Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri said the full SOP for the activities was issued as a guideline for Muslims to follow during the recovery movement control order (MCO).
“We have also cooperated with the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry to look at the best practices that can be implemented while performing the korban activities.
“As a result, we have ordered eight slaughter cages and to demonstrate to us how it could be done in the best manner.
“Perhaps it could be introduced to other places if it is found suitable,” he told Wan Hassan Mohd Ramli (PAS-Dungun) during Question Time.
Wan Hassan was asking the government to reveal any new and innovative technique for the korban activities that adhere to the SOP set by the National Security Council (NSC).
Muslims in the country will observe Hari Raya Aidiladha next Friday.
Zulkifli said the special muzakarah committee meeting of the National Council for Islamic Religious Affairs was held seven times throughout the MCO period to discuss issues regarding the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Among the issues that were discussed included the procedures for Friday prayers at mosques and surau, virtual akad nikah (marriage solemnisation) and the payment of zakat (tithe) as well as korban activities with viewpoints from the Health Ministry, NSC and other related agencies.
