KUCHING: The proposal to upgrade the Darulhana Patingan Mosque in Satok will be submitted to Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.
Satok assemblyman Datuk Ibrahim Baki said although the premier was aware of the proposal, further discussions including the cost had to be studied and approval obtained from him.
The upgraded project would serve as a landmark in Satok area once it’s completed.
“As the people’s representative in this area, I am proud because it will make Masjid Darulhana Patingan one of the most sophisticated mosques as it is equipped with various facilities.
“After watching the video of the proposed upgrade project, I was excited to see the fully equipped facilities including apartments, multi-purpose halls, libraries and cafes,” he said during the Ihsan Ramadan Programme at Masjid Darulhana Patingan, here on Monday (April 11).
At the ceremony, Ibrahim also presented donations to 15 asnaf groups, Masjid Darulhana Patingan and Tahfiz Pondok Hidayatul Mubtadiien Wa Tahfizul Quran, Kampung No. 6.
On the donations, Ibrahim said they would ease the burden of the needy to celebrate Eid and the month of fasting.
He thanked the villagers for their support and cooperation to develop Satok.
Also present were Masjid Darulhana Patingan chairman Zamhari Hashim, Penghulu Kampung Patingan Mustapha Wahap and the villagers.
Zamhari said the mosque was also equipped with a digital library, elevator for customers, electronic printing board, and information technology (IT) resource box – all for the convenience of the surrounding residents.
