Special committee to study if Mak Yong art form is syariah-compliant

KOTA BHARU, Kelantan has set up a special committee to study whether every aspect of the ‘Mak Yong’ art form is syariah-compliant, said a state executive councillor (exco).

We will try (to permit Mak Yong performances). The special committee will check to see if the Mak Yong shows comply with syariah requirements, said State Unity, Culture, Heritage and Tourism Committee chairman Major (Rtd) Datuk Md Anizam Abdul Rahman.

We will then decide whether to allow the Mak Yong shows. At the moment, no Mak Yong performance is allowed in the state but the committee is in the final stages of assessing the matter. Wayang Kulit has long been allowed (to be performed in Kelantan), he told reporters after attending the state executive council meeting, at the Kota Darul Naim Complex here, today.
