PRODDED BY THEIR PARTIES, MUSLIM HARDLINERS STIR UP NEW TROUBLE IN JOHOR: NOW, PAS WANTS BAN ON MUSLIM HOTEL STAFF SERVING ALCOHOL TO GUESTS

JOHOR BARU – Johor PAS has called on the Government to come up with guidelines to ensure Muslim staff at hotels are banned from serving alcohol to guests.

State information chief Shamsudin Jaafar said that there were no guidelines for staff when it comes to serving alcohol or events that involved alcohol at hotels nationwide.

“This means that any staff member could be tasked to serve alcoholic beverages to patrons at hotels,” said Shamsudin, who had been a hotelier for 14 years.

“Any kind of activity that involves alcohol is forbidden in Islam and as such, Muslims by right should not be given such task,” he added when speaking to reporters here on Tuesday

Much to their dismay, the hotel’s duty manager declined to accept the memorandum.
