He said in an Instagram post accompanied with the news report of the laundry that had created a huge hype over the internet recently. Tunku Idris Sultan Ibrahim was surprised by the discrimination himself.

He wrote in his post,

“Is this for real? This is too extreme. I’m appalled. I’m not as worried for the owner of the shop than I am for the people that actually praised it. A scary sign to where we are heading.”

Many netizens praised him for his thoughts regarding the issue. He also added,

“Islam has taught me about tolerance and respecting people of other faith. Not about supremacy over others.”

Meanwhile, there are other religious authorities that disagreed whether this was a discrimination.

News reports also reported that Johor Islamic Council adviser Nooh Gadut, had said that Muslims and non-Muslims should ensure that their laundry are not mixed together with “najis mughallazah”, or faeces of pigs and dogs.

However, as for Perlis mufti, Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin he said that such ‘narrow-mindedness’could lead to extremism and it will be impossible for Malaysia to be a multi-racial society.

As for the owner of the laundry, he said that he was only doing his duty as a Muslim.

Are you in support of this? What do you think?

    The owner should make it free of charge for muslims to use his machines instead.
    Lol non-muslims will not be offended with such a naive or idiotic act, in the name of religion.
    The owner and pathetic, along with those fanatics who supported are even miserable.
