Jakarta Red Zones Barred from Holding Qurban Procession

23 July 2020 11:29 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The North Jakarta Administration announced on Thursday that qurban sacrificial tradition will be banned in locations that are under strict localized territorial restriction (WPK) to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Areas that are under strict COVID-19 measures will have to conduct the sacrifice in other areas that are considered to be safer. 

“Or they can immediately take the qurban to the closest slaughterhouses,” said Wawan Budi Rohman, the North Jakarta People’s Welfare and Administration assistant in a written statement on Thursday. 

The Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan previously said that there are 66 community units (RW) that are categorized as red zones amidst the transitional PSBB. There are now 30 RWs within Jakarta’s five areas that have imposed the WPK status. 

Wawan Budi Rohman continues to urge people to abide by existing health protocols on qurban animal sacrifices ahead of the Eid al-Adha celebration. The restrictions include the use of masks, face shields, and gloves for the qurban butchers, limiting the number of people gathering, and qurban officials must not come from areas that are quarantined.
