Neelofa’s Family In The Spotlight Again For Breaching SOPs, Sister Shares Video Of 1st Day Of Syawal

today18 May 2021


Ah yes, again.


Popular celebrity Neelofa has once again sparked controversy when she allegedly breached MCO SOPs for Hari Raya by celebrating the occasion with more than 10 of her family members in a residence in Ampang on the 13th of May. The controversy sparked when Neelofa’s sister, Noor Nabila posted a video on Instagram, which was then shared on Twitter by user @TheZollonist.


The 27-second clip captioned, “1 Syawal yang penuh mulia” (A glorious 1st Syawal) it could be seen that her family got together during that morning and were greeting each other through handshakes.



Prior to this, the Defence Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob released a statement saying that visitation during Hari Raya would not be allowed for as long as the MCO is implemented. This decision also resulted in the wife of a police officer – on duty at a roadblock in Putrajaya – being fined RM2,000 because she was sending food to him in the same area.


As you all are probably aware by now, this is not the first time Neelofa found herself in the midst of controversy. She previously breached SOPs by travelling interstate to Langkawi Island in Kedah, and Nilai, Negeri Sembilan with her husband Haris Ismail.

Following this recent incident chief police officer of the Ampang Jaya district, Mohamad Farouk Eshak stated that the event was suspected to occur in a residence in Hulu Kelang, Ampang.


Netizens expressed their frustration seeing these events, as most were not able to see their families during the Raya period.


This user said: “So much fun celebrating Raya…others can’t even see their parents.”

Nothing less from this user who said: “I’m exhausted seeing the same thing from the same family. Is their family just problematic?”


To the rest of Malaysians, despite all of the controversy, we’d like to advise you to continue adhering to the SOPs set by the government. It’s crucial that you protect yourself and everyone around you. Together, we can break the chain.
