PETALING JAYA – Datuk Seri Nazir Razak says the “Muslim only” policy adopted by a self-service launderette in Muar, Johor is “a misinterpretation of Islamic teaching”.
“This is very troubling. We have to curb such extremism if we are to build a peaceful and progressive multicultural Malaysia,” said the CIMB Group chairman on Monday.
Posting a screenshot of The Star’s report on the launderette’s “Muslim only” policy on his Instagram page, Nazir said that the launderette must be practicing “a misinterpretation of Islamic teaching”.
A launderette is limiting its clientele to Muslim customers only.
