Visits to non-Muslim places of worship: See MAIPk
LENGGONG: Any program that includes invitations for Muslims to attend non-Muslim places of worship in Perak should be referred to the Perak Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIPk) Committee.
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad (pix) said this is because MAIPk is directly involved in setting the policy for the matter.
“As part of this committee, there will be discussions between the MAIPk Chair, Menteri Besar, Secretary of State, Mufti, Syariah and Civil Law Advisers, former Supreme Court Justices and several other parties.
“All the decisions and circulars issued by this committee should be obeyed because they are made by Islamic scholars and experts,” he told reporters after attending the Lenggong Umno Division Delegates Assembly at the Kolej Kemahiran Tinggi MARA here today .
He was asked to comment on whether Perak would follow Selangor’s move to ban any program involving Muslims in non-Muslim places of worship in the state.
In a further development, Saarani, who is also the leader of Perak Umno, said party wing elections in all departments of the state went smoothly.
“Everything is going well, although it took some time in some departments because the number of members who attended the assembly and the number of candidates who participated in the competitions was quite large,” he said.
He also stressed that while there have been changes in some departments, this has not affected the harmony among members and instead shows that the practice of democracy in party leadership continues to thrive. -Bernama
