Interstate Travel MIGHT Be Allowed For Hari Raya Aidilfitri Celebrations
With the Raya holidays coming up soon, many of us are hoping that we can head back to our hometowns to see our loved ones and perhaps provide them with some much needed TLC and as it appears, we might actually get to do so.
The government is now conducting a thorough and detailed study on the risks of reopening the inter-state borders as well as allowing visits this holiday season.
According to Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yasin, since mosques has been allowed to conduct and hold the tarawih prayers for Ramadan, he might also allow the Aidilfitri prayers to be conducted along with the takbir raya.
Muhyiddin also added saying “it will take some time and added care for the studies to be conducted properly. As of right now, I can’t promise anything but Insya Allah, it will be announced at an appropriate time.”
In the mean time, Muhyiddin has urged fellow Malaysians to continue adhering to the SOP’s which are in place to ensure that the cases don’t spike up again. As it stands, the current COVID-19 cases in Malaysia, while although still high, has dropped significantly over the past few months, largely in part to the MCO 2.0.
I don’t know about the rest of you guys, but for me personally, I can’t wait to head back to my hometown, but I hope that the inter-state travel ban remains in effect… at least until an RMCO is announced.
