Kuala Lumpur, Feb 13 (ANI): Sikh temples will be allowed to send their religious teachers to National Service training camps which have 15 Sikh trainees or more, said NS Department director-general Abdul Hadi Awang Kechil.

He said the decision was made after a meeting with the Malaysian Gurdwara Council here yesterday.

The mechanism would be ironed out before its implementation on May 1, The Star reports.

Abdul Hadi said the NS Department would not bear the cost of such initiatives if there were less than 15 Sikh trainees in the camp.

“Under such circumstances, if parents want to bear the cost of sending a religious teacher, we will not object,” he said. (ANI)
