Discussions are still being held on whether approvals should be given to hold religious activities at surau and mosques during the conditional movement control order (CMCO).

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religion) Datuk Seri Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri said a number of factors involving health and safety need to be considered before the government can introduce a standard operating procedure (SOP).

He explained that his office has already taken the initiative to discuss the matter with the Mufti and the National Council for Islamic Religious Affairs Malaysia (Majlis Kebangsaan Hal. Ehwal Agama Islam Malaysia, MKI).

The last meeting was on 30 April. The SOP was presented and is being further reviewed.

Meanwhile, according to Berita Harian, the ministry will release a more detailed announcement on this issue through a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) series on 4 May.
