Effi Saharuddin said, “Tahfiz regulations are mandatory. How often must we let children be victims of fire? Till when? Islam allows incompetence?”

Netizens added, authorities should investigate the cause of fire and find solutions to ensure such an inferno does not happen again in the future.

Netizens also urged the authorities to provide emergency routes in order to better handle such fires.

Dean Mohammad said, “Tahfiz schools need to be reassessed. There have been many cases of tahfiz schools on fire. Investigate the cause of fire so it does not happen again in the future.”

“Escape routes, fire alarms, sufficient fire exercises are implemented in tahfiz schools? And if needed, fire drills must be conducted to prevent this disaster.”
