KUCHING: As the Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet, Muslims are advised to celebrate this year’s Hari Raya Aidiladha moderately.

The Congress of Union of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) Sarawak chairman Omar Bahrein Unin has urged the people to continue supporting the government’s effort in curbing the spread of Covid-19 by adhering to the standard operating procedures (SOPs).

“Please comply with the guidelines and do not do anything which is against the SOPs in order to protect your health, the health of your family, and the health of society as a whole.

The guidelines issued by the Sarawak Islamic Council stated that Muslims in Sarawak are not allowed to perform sacrificial rituals (korban) this year.

He advised the public to remain patient and follow the rules to prevent the virus from spreading further in the community.

“We have to be patient and continue to pray for an end to the Covid-19 pandemic as soon as possible and we must also follow closely to the government restrictions to prevent a spike in Covid-19 cases.

He concluded by wishing everyone in Sarawak a blessed Aidiladha.
