KUALA LUMPUR – The Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) had prepared the standard operating procedures (SOP) for korban practices in all mosques and surau under the Federal Territories which can be used as a reference for other states in the country.

The capacity of the people on duty is limited to not more than 30 people for each cattle.
With that, the organisers must ensure that the number of cattle matches the capacity of the people on duty.
The process of slaughter, cutting and distribution of the meat must be done at a suitable venue which is spacious.
According to Ismail Sabri, besides the mosques, surau and areas which obtained approval from the state religious authorities and the local authorities, 28 Veterinary Services Slaughter Centres and 31 Private Ruminant Slaughter Centres have also been licenced to carry out the slaughter.
To contain the spread of Covid-19, SOP such as the screening of body temperature, hand sanitisation, taking record of attendance at the entrance will be required.
The people on duty must be health, do not show symptoms and do not have chronic diseases and must not be children below the age of 12.
