Ms Hazel Poa: To ask the Minister for Home Affairs when will the amendments to the Maintenance of Religious Harmony Act passed in 2019 come into operation.
1. Since the passing of the amendments to the Maintenance of Religious Harmony Act (MRHA) in October 2019, MHA has been working on developing the systems and processes that will facilitate the required disclosures and reporting by religious groups. We have also been conducting user testing on the new systems. We are working towards operationalising the amendments to the MRHA by early 2022.
