Last week, the Religious Affairs Minister made it clear that the annual beer festival, Oktoberfest should not be held in Malaysia as a form of respect for the official religion in Malaysia, Islam.

Just today (August 3), Dewan Muslimat PAS Malaysia took to their Facebook account and expressed their support for the ban of Oktoberfest in Malaysia.

‘Oktoberfest is a promotion that is done publicly (for) alcohol which may lead to more social issues.’

YB Senator Ustazah Nuridah, the head of Dewan Muslimat PAS Malaysia said that alcohol does not only damage the health of the consumer but has been proven to bring more harm to the family and society. For instance, domestic abuse and accidents involving drunk people have been on the rise since 2018. 

She also said that despite being associated with a German festival that had nothing to do with alcohol, Oktoberfest is now mostly all about alcohol and funfair, and it has been that way since 1910.

‘It’s a beer festival where alcohol companies will sponsor booze for the festival, and attracts around 5 to 6 million tourists to Germany every year.’

Ustazah Nuridah then reiterated that the beer festival is strictly opposing the eastern values that Malaysians have, not to mention how it opens more doorways to unhealthy lifestyles. However, she clarified that they are not stopping non-Muslims from consuming alcohol.

‘Therefore, we strongly believe that the Oktoberfest should be banned in our country and shouldn’t be a tradition here.’

Should Oktoberfest be banned, do you think it will work in lowering the number of social issues involving drunk people? Do you agree with what the head of Dewan Muslimat PAS Malaysia had to say?
