MUIB Department comes under His Majesty’s scrutiny

The efficiency of the Brunei Islamic Religious Council (MUIB) Department was called into question by His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, during an unscheduled visit yesterday to the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA).

“MUIB Department bears the responsibility of managing Baitulmal, together with the management, collection and distribution of Zakat affairs, and so on. However, the role of the department is perceived as not proactive enough in carrying out duties in assisting the underprivileged community,” said His Majesty in a titah delivered at the ministry.
