PAS true color?

Kelantan Muslims segregated in the supermarket

As a non-Muslim, I let Muslim themselves to settle this religion related issue among themselves.

Azizan, why don’t you just advise Muslim couples only to be segregated? PAS leaders should stop imposing their religious value on non-Muslims.

Gender segregation was imposed in certain local public universities under the nose of BN, PAS is not the sole party to initiate this religion related regulation in Malaysia. UMNO under Anwar Ibrahim is the first one to start islamization in our schools.

What is the official stand from DAP and PKR about this “suggestion” from Kedah Menteri Besar.

Gender segregation bid at New Year do slammed


GEORGE TOWN: The Kedah government has come under fire for trying to impose gender segregation at its state-level New Year’s eve countdown celebration in Sungai Petani.

Kedah MCA chairman Datuk Chong Itt Chew said he received many complaints from revellers who were unhappy that men and women were “advised” to sit separately during the gathering near the clock tower at Jalan Ibrahim.

He said a large LED screen had displayed words advising couples not to sit together but to sit in the arrangement which segregated men and women.

“I feel gender segregation is not appropriate as it ignores the sensitivity of people from different religions and creed,” Chong said yesterday.

He said many people who ushered in the New Year with their families did not expect such “untraditional practice”.

“I don’t know what is the motive of the organisers. They should respect the sensitivity of non-Muslims,” he added.

Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak said there was nothing wrong with men and women sitting separately.

He said such a move could avoid problems such as pick-pocketing and indecent behaviour.

Azizan said the gender segregation was merely a suggestion and nobody was forced to comply with it.
