Tahfiz, madrasah allowed to resume operations


ALL registered tahfiz schools and centres (madrasah) have been allowed to resume operations on the date of the re-openng of schools which will be announced by the Education Ministry (KPM) soon.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said all these schools must abide by the standard operating procedure set by the KPM while madrasah with hostels must also observe the standard operating procedure (SOP) for residential schools.

“So tahfiz schools do not need to have their own SOP but should just refer to and use the SOP set by the KPM.

“In the case of religious schools which are not registered, they must first be registered with the state religious authorities,” he said in a press conference after chairing the Special Ministerial Meeting on the Imposition of the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) here today.
