This year, fasting month minus Ramadan bazaars in Selangor

Several states have announced there will be no Ramadan bazaars during the coming fasting month.

SHAH ALAM: Selangor will not allow Ramadan bazaars, following three other states which banned the month-long outdoor market due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari said the ban could be lifted but subject to the health ministry’s approval.

“I believe there will be online Ramadan bazaars as there are delivery services.”

Earlier, Melaka, Terengganu and Negeri Sembilan cancelled the bazaars, traditionally held in Malaysia throughout the fasting month.

Penang has frozen stall licences for the bazaars, while other states have yet to decide.
