Syed Saddiq Criticized For Wearing Sports Attire Showing Off Aurat

It has been a week since the full list of Malaysia Cabinet under the leadership of Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad has been announced and all ministers and deputies have sworn and accepted their respective appointments.

Among the new government, the focus is certainly on the youngest minister in Malaysia, the Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman. Being in his mid-20s, Saddiq is often underestimated by his first year-round involvement in the political arena.

Recently, Saddiq uploaded pictures on his Instagram account showing him jogging around Putrajaya along with other officials at the Ministry of Youth and Sports. Jogging for 5 km, Saddiq said that such a healthy activity should be done every day.

However, social media users have criticized the appearance of the young minister. They pointed out that Saddiq was jogging with shorts that were above his knees, showing off his aurat.

A Facebook user Muhtar Suhaili As-Sarawaki made a special entry addressed to Saddiq, advising the Minister of Youth and Sports to be a good example for the public.

He said Saddiq did not have to make a big change, just set a good example for the public. Muhtar also compared to the way the other officials dressed and said it was much more appropriate and polite.

Even worse, there are netizens who claim Saddiq had humiliated UIAM because he studied at the Islamic University but he’s not aware of his aurat. Many who insinuate and belittle Saddiq saying that he may still be unaware that he is now a public figure, so he wears whatever he thinks is okay.

As a leader, every movement and action is being viewed by the public, especially the younger ones. Hopefully, Syed Saddiq will be more careful next time.

    I taught Chemistry in the America Degree Program (ADP) at the then ITM now UiTM from Sept 1987 to Dec 1993. I played tennis regularly at the ITM tennis courts wearing my tennis shorts. No one, not a single person complained. I represented the Staff tennis team against other universities. We had lady players. I always, on my own initiative, would put on my track bottoms after I had done playing. Tq. Kuldip Singh s/o (son of) Durbara, PJ.

    Didn’t the previous Youth minister wore something more revealing (shorts and sleeveless) during Ironman Putrajaya event?
