#PKPB #COVID-19 KERATAN AKHBAR PILIHAN: KEEPING THE PEACE ON RAYA


Hari Raya Aidilfitri this year will be one for the books for most Muslims, with "balik kampung" prohibited and house visits among relatives and friends highly discouraged in light of COVID-19.

And to keep peace and order under the conditional movement control order (MCO), many Muslim police personnel will celebrate Raya while on duty.

For Corporal Nur Amalina Ishak, 35, not a day goes by when she does not worry for the safety of her husband, Ady Hafizal Ahmad Hashim, who is also a police corporal.

"My husband is regularly called to duty for midnight raids on premises that conduct illicit activities, such as massage parlours and karaoke centres.

"During the MCO, he reports for duty if there is any report received on such premises operating," she said, adding that her husband was also regularly tasked with manning roadblocks.

"I worry about irresponsible drivers on the road because there have been several cases of police getting injured in accidents at roadblocks," she added.

The mother-of-three who works in the crime prevention unit at the Sri Petaling police station, is grateful she can be on leave on the first day of Raya.

"I have served in the force for the past 16 years and this will be the first time I get to spend the first day of Raya with my children.

"In the past, I had to bring my children with me to the station during Raya as both my husband and I had to work," she said, adding that although she would be on leave, she could still be called in if there was shortage of manpower at the station.

Corporal Nur Amalina and her husband would usually take turns every year to go back to their respective hometown of Kota Bharu (Kelantan) and Simpang Empat (Perlis).

"This year, we were supposed to return to his hometown. But since interstate travel is prohibited, we have told my mother-in-law that we cannot make it.

"We will celebrate at home. I will cook for my family," she said.
