Jaim Enforcement Division principal assistant director Rahimin Bani said the operation to dispose of the sacrilegious mats by burying them at a special disposal site in Sungai Udang, Malacca, was carried out on Thursday.
He said the operation, which was completed in two hours, involved 30 personnel, including representatives from the Malacca Historic City Council, SWM Environment Sdn Bhd, the Home Ministry, the Malacca Mufti Department and the Jaim research Department.
"The floor mats were seized from a warehouse belonging to a trader in Krubong, and were taken to the disposal site using two lorries," Rahimin told Bernama.
On Dec 1 last year, Jaim seized over 500 floor mats in a raid on a supplier warehouse in Krubong after complaints from the public.
Images of the floor mats, which were stuffed with papers with Quranic verses on them, went viral on social media. With the disposal of five tons of the floor mats, Rahimin said the case is considered solved.
