No Liqour Please, We're PAS

The state government must make sure that liquor is not served at events sponsored by a beer company in conjunction with the visit of Chelsea Football Club to Malaysia.

Selangor Pas Youth chief Sallehin Mukhyi said the presence of Muslims, including state leaders, at the events should be taken into account.

"We have nothing against them coming but we do not want liquor to be served at functions attended by Muslims. This will not only involve Pakatan Rakyat leaders and Selangor residents, it will also be done on state premises."

He said Pas Youth hoped the state government would study the programmes planned for the English football club before allowing it to come for the friendly match. "We urge the state government to cancel several of the programmes, which are against the tenets of Islam."

Sallehin said Pas had no issue with the football match as the party looked at it as a healthy activity.

"Since the match is with an international club, this would establish a good relationship at an international level. However, we do not want events conducted prior to the match to have liquor."

He said since the PR government included Pas, it would not be appropriate for a function to include liquor. He said an event serving liquor was not only against the tenets of Islam but also Malay culture. Therefore, the state Pas Youth wing would not hesitate to send a memorandum of protest to the state government on the issue.

This is not the first time the wing has asked the state government to step in to change parts of a function deemed un-Islamic.

It had submitted a memorandum to the menteri besar's office to protest plans to have artistes Ella and Mas Idayu perform at the Sultan of Selangor Cup football match on July 6 and threatened to hold a demonstration if the event went ahead. However, the show featured both artistes and went on without a hitch.

The match between Chelsea and the Malaysian national team is set to take place at Shah Alam Stadium on July 29. (NST)

***** No liqour and no women artistes. Both are against Islam and the 'Malay culture'. However go to 4-D shops on draw days and see how many Malays throng these outlets. Go to girlie bars on any day/night and see how Malay culture and the religion has not discouraged so many of them from patronising these places.

Frankly there is only so much that a democratic government should do to discourage citizens from indulging in their likes and tastes. But then again those who dream of absolute theocratic states and caliphates are not bound by the inconvenient fundamentals of a functioning democracy. Voting PAS anyone?

Well we should be aware of the religious or race differences that we have in Malaysia. By doing so, we are respecting each others boundaries and limitations.

To police something as huge as the Chealsea football team coming here..they've just eliminated the very last strands of relevance that they might have with a modern society. though really, I dun think anybody is surprised here. BUT to expect these guys to work well with the others to form federal government...it's a no from me.

I dont think Chelsea should bother coming here....they are far too popular to bother coming to a hyocritical, racist and corrupt country!!

I would leave out religous argument for this comment as it would be too emotional, but would certainly support the ban of liqour in this function. I would not want my teenage boys to attend a function serving alcohol. In the same way that I would not allow my teenage boys to visit a casino.

This has nothing to do with being multi religion groups etc.

I wud also like to ask the same as ladyRP. Is beef excluded when there is the presence of people to whom beef is haram? ALL religions must be considered and treated with the same respect, please.

Like our Sultan said, Selangor is not PAS & Malays only. You have others here too. As long as it is within our laws, who care about these hardcore PAS.

I'll continue to vote PAS to supplement PR. But I won't vote PAS to power as in Kelantan or Kedah.

Muslims don't eat pork because Allah says so. If Allah says don't eat beef, muslims follow what Allah says.
