EVEN NAZIR SAYS IT’S EXTREMISM BUT NAJIB DOES NOTHING: ‘MUSLIMS ONLY’ LAUNDERETTE MISREPRESENTS ISLAM, SAYS PM’S BROTHER

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.

 The matter first came to light when a photo, believed to have been taken at the launderette, showing an ‘Only For Muslims’ sign went viral on social media.
