Prioritise personal and family safety during Aidilfitri celebrations, advises Zahid

KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi called on Malaysians, especially Muslims gearing up for Hari Raya Aidilfitri, to prioritise personal and family safety, particularly during their travels back to their respective hometowns.

In a Facebook post on Saturday (April 6), Ahmad Zahid reminds the public of the importance of thorough preparations, including proper vehicle maintenance and meticulous travel planning, to ensure a safe and smooth journey for everyone.

"I hope that in everyone's excitement to reunite with parents and relatives, we do not forget our personal and family safety. Ensure that all necessary preparations, including vehicle maintenance and travel planning, have been thoroughly completed. Drive responsibly and cautiously, and take breaks when necessary," he emphasised.

Ahmad Zahid also expressed his hope that this year's Hari Raya Aidilfitri would be a joyous and happy celebration for all Muslims.

Previously, the Office of the Keeper of the Rulers' Seal announced that the Syawal moon sighting was scheduled for Tuesday evening (April 9) at 29 locations nationwide and that the Hari Raya Aidilfitri date would be declared the same night. – Bernama
