De facto Islamic affairs minister Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri has proposed that all activities at mosques and surau, including Friday prayers, be deferred until the end of the movement control order period (MCO).

This is after Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said the MCO would be extended to April 14 in effort to combat the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
