Govt mulls opening dedicated cemeteries for Covid-19 casualties


The government will look into the need to open cemeteries to accommodate burials of Muslims who died due to Covid-19.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri said discussions will be held with the National Fatwa Council and the state muftis to get their views on the matter.

“The focus will be in the Federal Territories (especially Kuala Lumpur).

“This is to ensure that we can properly manage the remains of those who died from Covid-19,” he told reporters after presenting donations to 200 canteen operators and cleaning workers via drive-through, organised by Yayasan Dakwah Islamiah Malaysia (Yadim) in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan today.

Zulkifli said to date, Yadim has spent more than RM1 million to help the needy throughout the country, especially in facing the Covid-19 pandemic’s impact.

The donation drive was also conducted with the cooperation of various NGOs, he added.
