KOTA BHARU, Oct 8 -- The Malaysian Government Pensioners Association (PPKM) in Kelantan, today called on the state government to review guidelines on the issuance of licences to companies owned by non-Muslims.
State PPKM head Datuk Abdul Halim Hamad said this was because the association had found that such companies were conducting business by using Islamic and Malay names or symbols which could confuse the Muslim community.
"It's not that we want to boycott non-Muslims but the Muslim community must be clear on 'halal' and 'haram' matters," he told reporters during a press conference here, while adding that race relations in Kelantan was in a very good state.
Abdul Halim added, it was clear that there were many shops or companies which appeared to be owned by Muslims but in reality, were owned by non-Muslims.
He also said that PPKM supported the 'Buy Muslim-made First' campaign because it pertained to the future of Muslims in the country.
