Following weeks of turmoil over the issue of the socks with the word “Allah” written on it at a branch of the chain convenience store, KK Mart, it appears that things may be reaching its peak.

The founder and group executive chairman of the KK Group of Companies, Datuk Seri Dr Chai Kee Kan, has officially met with Yang di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA) Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, to apologise for the matter.

His Highness’s team took to the Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar Facebook page to further detail their meeting that took place earlier today (April 3).

They wrote, “The founder of KK Mart asks for the forgiveness and shared his apologies with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. His Royal Highness SPB Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Ibrahim agreed to accept an address with
Datuk Seri Dr Chai Kee Kan, Founder and Executive Chairman of the KK Supermart & Superstore Sdn Bhd Group.”

“The meeting with His Majesty lasted for 15 minutes at Istana Negara, today (April 3). During the face-to-face session, Dr Chai asked for forgiveness and apologised to His Majesty as well as all Muslims regarding the issue of selling socks with the word ‘Allah’ written on them in some branches of the convenience store.”


YDPA, in turn, ordered that all parties, including KK Mart, need to be more careful about the products being sold, especially should they be imported from overseas.

“All parties must be more responsible. Don’t let the banana fruit twice (don’t let the mistake happen again) and I hope this is the last time I have to insist on this.”

“Once again, I stress that no party should take advantage of this matter, including the provocation of the people. I don’t want this matter to drag on,” His Highness said.
