KUANTAN, April 29 — The Pahang Health Department stressed that the RM10,000 compound fine imposed on the management of the Sri Maulana Mosque, Pekan recently was in accordance with the existing guidelines and procedures.
Its director Datuk Dr Bahari Che Awang Ngah said the officer who issued the compound had also carried out his duties prudently and responsibly.
“Any attempt to downplay such action (issuing compound notices) can be interpreted as challenging the provisions of the gazetted law.
“The department has lodged a police report on messages circulating on social media related to the issue,” he said in a statement here today.
On April 20, Dr Bahari said the compound was issued after it was found that the mosque management did not provide the MySejahtera QR Code and congregation registration book as required.
