MALAYSIA’S largest highway concessionaire, PLUS Malaysia Bhd (PLUS), has contributed over RM98 million in zakat to asnaf and other recipients the past seven years.

PLUS, in a statement today, said its business zakat contribution was in line with its corporate value of taking good care of the people.

The statement said PLUS chief operating officer Zakaria Ahmad Zabidi handed a business zakat contribution of over RM2.26 million to Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad yesterday.

Since 2013, PLUS has contributed business zakat of approximately RM20.5 million to the Johor state government, it added.

“This is what we are striving to achieve by embellishing the lives of our community as well as those whose livelihoods are also dependent on them,” the statement said.
