The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis) has issued a statement thanking the outgoing Minister for Muslim Affairs, and welcoming the incoming minister.
"Muis appreciates the guidance and direction of Dr Yaacob Ibrahim over the last 16 years, in our journey to build a Muslim community of excellence. In this time, we were able to achieve many significant milestones in the socioreligious life of the community, and to strengthen our beloved religious institutions. For example, many of our wakaf have been revitalised, and we have new mosques and rejuvenated our older ones. We have made great strides in building up the capabilities of our asatizah as well as our madrasah sector. Our community contributes strongly to the social fabric of Singapore and stands proud with our ethos of being a blessing to all.
We look forward to continuing the journey with Minister Masagos Zulkifli," the organisation said on Facebook.
