Terengganu to seal restaurants during fasting hours

Ghazali-Taib-terengganu-closed-kedai-makanAJIL: The Terengganu state government will seal food premises operating outside the hours specified to avoid immoral activities, said Ghazali Taib, who is state exco for communications, multimedia and special functions.

He said that like last year, the state government had issued a directive to the religious department in every district to monitor entrepreneurs at the Ramadan bazaars or restaurants so that they complied with the regulations specified during the fasting month.

“We only allow the entrepreneurs to be at the business premises at 2.30pm, especially at the Ramadan bazaars because they come to prepare the business sites and the earliest that these premises can start their operations is 3pm,” he said.

Ghazali was approached by reporters when visiting and giving away his personal contributions to victims whose houses were razed in a fire at Felda Bukit Bading, Ajil here yesterday.
