Big gatherings vs faith and good judgment
[Image: frankie-dcruz-new-140620-1.jpg]

The huge Friday prayer congregation at a mosque in Seremban last week could and should have been avoided.

Understandably, it is not easy to maintain the sense of spiritual connection when one must change the way one worships.

But it doesn’t make one any less faithful to have both faith and good judgment.

The horror of seeing a video clip that went viral showing a massive crowd in the compound of the mosque in Kampung Sentosa reflects something deeply callous about collectively fighting a pandemic.

The lockdown is not going as planned, to put it mildly; leniency and arbitrary decisions have shredded Covid-19 safety guidance.

Blindness to the rules is what makes some people act selfishly while others are more responsible.

Yet the government seems to have given leeway to its public relations battle while at the same time imposing stringent measures to protect the community.

While this column respects Friday prayers at mosques, this is a pointed reminder that large assemblies of people at a single place means the virus will find its way into the community and cause much damage.

Large gatherings during the movement control order period are disallowed. No exceptions.
