AWFUL SMELL: Johor Baru Council urged to relocate rubbish collection point
Worshippers at the Masjid India here are complaining about the stench coming from a rubbish collection point in front of the mosque.
Syafie Ramli, 42, said food traders and hawkers in the area would throw rubbish there at night.
"Packs of stray dogs would come to look for food. It gets worse when it rains because the stench would reach the mosque," he said.
Another worshipper, Suhaimi Abu Bakar, 38, said the location should not be used as a rubbish collection point because it was near the mosque's entrance.
He said the mosque and its surroundings should be kept clean because they reflected the image of Islam.
"The city council should relocate the rubbish dump to another place."
