Covid-19: Pekan mosque compounded RM10,000 for not complying with SOPs

KUANTAN (Bernama): The RM10,000 compound fine imposed on a mosque in Pekan near here on Tuesday (April 20) should be a lesson to the management of other mosques in Pahang to comply with Covid-19 prevention standard operating procedures (SOPs), says Datuk Dr Bahari Che Awang Ngah (pic).

The Pahang Health director said Pekan district health officers issued the compound after finding that the mosque management did not register the names of the congregation as required.

"The compound was issued so that other mosques can learn from it. Payment has been made by the mosque with a 50% discount given," he said in a brief message to the media via WhatsApp here Wednesday (April 21).

Earlier Wednesday, news that the chairman of the Sri Maulana Mosque Committee in Pekan was issued a compound fine of RM10,000 for allegedly not providing the MySejahtera QR Code and congregation registration book when the Pekan Health Office officers made an inspection at the mosque at 11am Tuesday had gone viral on social media. - Bernama
