A mosque in Pekan near Kuantan in Pahang was yesterday slapped with a RM10,000 compound for failing to comply with Covid-19 SOPs.
State health director Bahari Che Awang Ngah said officers from the Pekan district health office issued the compound after finding that the mosque management had not registered the names of congregants as required.
“The compound was issued so that other mosques can learn from it. Payment has been made by the mosque with a 50% discount given,” he said in a brief message to the media on WhatsApp today.
Today, news went viral on social media that the chairman of the Sri Maulana Mosque Committee in Pekan was issued a compound fine of RM10,000 for allegedly failing to provide the MySejahtera QR Code and congregation registration book when health officers made an inspection of the mosque at 11am yesterday.
The fine was to be settled within 14 days.
