Day Two into our Movement Control Order, Malaysians have been banned from joining any form of mass gathering that constitutes more than 50 people – which includes our beloved pasar malams as well. For the Muslims, Ramadhan is set to begin on the 24th of April, and will go on for a month and end with Hari Raya. Malaysians, keeping their priorities straight as usual, enquired what will happen to the institution of the bazaar Ramadan. Well, it seems like Singapore has their answer to this.

The Geylang Serai Ramadan bazaar which is organised by the People’s Association (PA) will not be held this year. The Star reported that this is due to the Covid-19 outbreak and a bazaar isn’t the best place to practice social distancing. A spokesman for PA added that all other Hari Raya festives and bazaars will also be cancelled.

“As the festive bazaars contribute to the festive mood, we understand that some residents may be disappointed. However, as our bazaars attract large crowds, we have taken the difficult decision not to proceed with these activities.”

The Singapore government announced on the 13th of March that ticketed cultural, sports and entertainment events with 250 participants or more are to be postponed or cancelled.

Although it may seem like a drastic move for some, it’s probably the best decision in terms of the greater good. Will the Malaysian government also follow in the steps of Singapore? We shall just wait and see.
