Recently, KK Mart has been the subject of boycott and scrutiny by the Malaysian public recently after the convenience store was found to have sold socks with the word ‘Allah’ on it, something that is considered gravely offensive by Muslims.

KK Mart has since issued a public apology over the incident but calls for a boycott and investigation by the police persist.

Today, as reported by Sinar Harian, KK Super Mart & Superstore Sdn Bhd founder and CEO Datuk Seri Dr Chai Kee Kan and his wife Datin Seri Loh Siew Mui were charged in the Shah Alam Sessions Court for their link to the distribution and sale of the offensive socks. 

They were both charged under Section 298 of the Penal Code for intentionally wounding the religious feelings of others.

Remember, 2 wrongs don’t make a right and never take the law into your own hands.
