KUCHING, July 30: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg reminds Muslim celebrants in Sarawak to stay vigilant and abide by the standard operating procedure (SOP) during tomorrow’s Hari Raya Aidiladha celebration.
In his message to celebrants on the Sarawakku Facebook page, he said measures and protocols taken to curb the Covid-19 pandemic had brought inconveniences to the people’s daily lives but he called on devotees not to take the SOP which has been imposed by the authorities lightly, especially now that Kuching has been declared a red zone once again.
“Restrictions and protocols imposed to curb the spread of the Coronavirus has brought many difficulties to our daily lives. Do not take lightly the SOPs that are enforced because we have to sacrifice all the comforts of life that we normally enjoy to ensure all of our safety against Covid-19.”
Abang Johari, who is also Finance and Economic Planning Minister, said that for public safety and health, the people need to make some sacrifices in their living in order to curb the Covid-19 in the state.
He also hoped and prayed that those living in the green zone will continue to abide and obey the protocols which were set by the authorities.
Those include practicing social distancing and wearing face masks to ensure that the green zone will remain as such.
Hence, Abang Johari called on Muslims to celebrate Hari Raya Aidiladha with thanksgiving, faithfulness besides fostering greater relationships among the people.—DayakDaily
