TASEK GELUGOR, Feb 18 (Bernama) — For the first time ever, Masjid Jamek Tasek Gelugor here has taken an initiative to organise a Chinese New Year celebration in its compound. Chairman of the mosque, Khairul Anuar Musa said the event was organised, among others, to make the public aware that the mosque was not only a place for Muslims, but also to people of other faiths.
“We have been planning the event since last month and last Feb 11, the mosque committee started to send invitation to the Chinese community living around the mosque. We also received a positive feedback (from the Chinese), some of them even wanted to contribute for the event. “Alhamdulillah (praise be to Allah), the Chinese community came with the spirit of goodwill,” he said after the event which was held after the Asar prayer at the mosque compound today.-STAR
