Don’t use mosques, suraus for political activities, reminds Jais


Jais director Shahzihan Ahmad said action would be taken against mosque and surau officials who failed to abide by the directive.

SHAH ALAM: The Selangor Islamic religious department (Jais) has reminded its officials to adhere to the directive which prohibits mosques and suraus from being used for political activities.

The directive covers mosque and surau officials as well as marriage registrars, Jais director Shahzihan Ahmad said.

He stressed that this prohibition, as decreed by sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah previously, was still in effect, and would also apply to the ongoing Kuala Kubu Baharu (KKB) by-election campaign.

“Mosque officials, surau administrators, and head teachers are responsible for the premises under their control and must fulfil this duty honestly and sincerely without being influenced by any political sentiment,” he said in a statement.

Shahzihan said failure to comply may result in action being taken in accordance with the law. - FMT
