According to the latest SOP that was announced by the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, house visits and grave cleaning during Hari Raya is prohibited.

M V Sri Kumar added that anyone found violating the SOP will be issued compounds. However, he assured that actions taken by the police are not meant to pressure the public but to enforce existing rules and regulations.

Even though this festive season may not be as crowded as the previous years, it will be much merrier in the future, if we all comply to the SOPs and get rid of Covid-19.
