Today marks a special day for Muslim people in Bintulu ( and elsewhere around the world) when they congregate at the MasjidAssaykirrinto celebrate the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. I was part of the crowd that gathered here early to perform the special AidilFitri prayers followed by a sermon. Prayer time started at around 8.00 am Malaysian time. What was special today was the large number on non-Bintulu residents comprising of foreign workers from Indonesia and Bangladesh to partake in the congregation. There are easily about 20,000 or more foreign Indonesian and Bangladesh workers in Bintulu who are employed as contract workers in the oil palm plantations, plywood factories, construction sites and domestic households and service outlets like restaurants, petrol kiosks etc.,In Malaysia the government allocates two days of public holidays in celebration of the AidilFitri festivity.
