KUALA LUMPUR (April 21): The government “will look into the possibility of deferring” the Hari Raya Aidilfitri public holidays in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Star reported today.
It has been reported that Indonesia has decided to postpone its Hari Raya Aidilfitri holidays to Dec 28 to 31 to prevent the mass movement people to their hometowns and villages.
Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob was asked by the media yesterday if Putrajaya would “take the same approach as Indonesia”, he said “the minister concerned would give his views and proposal on this”.
“It will not just be about Hari Raya but also on other matters such as the terawih prayers (special prayers performed during the nights of Ramadan) that the minister will discuss and propose.
“So, let’s wait for what he has to say. Let us start fasting first,” the daily reported Ismail Sabri saying.
