Also deliberated on was the issue of Muslim Cemeteries Management raised by Yang Berhormat Awang Haji Umarali bin Esung. The Minister of Religious Affairs explained that the ministry has offered termed contracts to several companies in the form of daily and weekly termed contracts for certain cemeteries.
Some termed contracts are only for daily garbage disposal, and are given to local companies. The objectives are for the clean-up and maintenance of cemeteries including old cemeteries which can be re-used, as land at a number of existing cemeteries are said to be fully utilised. The Ministry of Religious Affairs will continue the maintenance of old cemeteries which can still be used.
