SHAH ALAM (Bernama): Several mosques and surau in Selangor were found to have violated the movement control order, says state Islamic Religious Department (Jais) director Datuk Mohd Shahzihan Ahmad.

He said the violations included exceeding the permitted number of people allowed at one time, individuals not wearing face masks and failing to observe the physical distancing rule.

"At this stage, Jais will only give advice or friendly reminders. However stern action will be taken if people ignore our warnings or these SOP breaches are continued," he said in a statement on Sunday (May 16).

He also urged Muslims in Selangor not to compare the measures taken by Jais with those taken in other states because the Covid-19 situation and levels of transmission vary from state to state.

It is hoped that everyone will act responsibly and maintain vigilance when participating in mosque congregational prayers, he added.- Bernama
