The Friday sermon called for a revival of community spirit and civic-mindedness in the maintenance of cleanliness at residential areas, mosques, cemeteries, recreational parks and public places.
“We must instil awareness and a responsible attitude. In preserving cleanliness, we do not need to rely on relevant agencies to keep the country clean and protect the natural environment,” Imams said during the sermon yesterday.
“Maintaining cleanliness should become our cultural value and a vital part of our daily life, so that we can eliminate illnesses such as cholera, diarrhoea and food poisoning.
“Nurturing cleanliness begins at home, and parents play a crucial role in guiding and teaching family members to uphold cleanliness.”
