Dress codes remain a controversy for some places in Malaysia. However, there are certain ethics and codes revolving around attire that we are all expected to adhere to. 

Yesterday (30 November), Abdul Latif Abdul Rahman, Member of Parliament (MP) for Kuala Krai, Kelantan brought up about dress codes among female Muslim hoteliers.

“There have been complaints from the female Muslim hotel workers who reportedly are not allowed to wear hijab and asked to wear short skirts,” he said while explaining that these attires do not represent what a Muslim woman wears.

In the meantime, he also addressed another issue revolving around Muslim workers in convenience stores whose job descriptions involve selling alcoholic beverages to customers.

“This clearly shows disrespect towards the rights of the Muslim workers,” he added.

The PAS MP also highlighted that in Islamic teachings, there are divine punishments that await people who are involved in the manufacturing and selling of alcohol products.

Thus, Muslim workers who sell alcoholic beverages in convenience stores are among the 10 categories of people who will face God’s punishments due to their involvement with alcohol.

Before taking his seat, Abdul Latif urged the Ministry to give attention to this issue as it violates the rights of the fellow Muslim workers in the country. You can watch the full video below.

While it is certain that everyone has to respect each other’s beliefs and culture, do you think this is the right issue to be raised at the moment? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
