KOTA BARU: The Kelantan government will hold talks with the youth and sports ministry and the National Sports Council (NSC) over guidelines on shariah-compliant sports attire for the 2028 Malaysia Games (Sukma 2028).

State youth, sports and NGO committee chairman Zamakhshari Muhamad said the talks were crucial since Kelantan would be hosting Sukma 2028.

“There are some attire-sensitive events that need to be discussed, like aquatics and rhythmic gymnastics, so the state government will discuss this matter with the ministry,” he said.

Zamakhshari was replying to a supplementary question from Rodzi Ja’afar (PAS-Gaal) during the state assembly sitting at Kompleks Kota Darulnaim here today.

He said the state government had also asked Dr Hafidzah Mustakim (PH-Kota Lama) to help out during the talks as the matter involved women athletes.

On Oct 14, deputy prime minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the federal government hoped that the RM276 million allocation would benefit Kelantan when it hosts Sukma 2028.

Zamakhshari said the Kelantan government would fully utilise the allocation to build six sports facilities at the Bukit Merbau Sports Complex in Pasir Puteh, and an aquatic centre at Madinah Al-Salam Tunjong through an allocation of RM164.35 million for the cost of land acquisition, preliminary land works and the provision of infrastructure.
