GEORGE TOWN, Nov 13 — Muslim women working in Penang hotels are not barred from wearing the “tudung” (headscarf), the Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH) said today.
MAH Penang Chapter president Khoo Boo Lim stressed that there were no such policies barring tudung-clad women from working in hotels in Penang.
“There are no hotels in Penang that practises such a ruling barring their female hotel staff from wearing the tudung,” he told a press conference today.
He said Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has expressed his concern over a statement made by MAH president Cheah Swee Hee, who reportedly said prohibiting female front-line workers like receptionists and wait staff from wearing headscarves was international practice.
“We share the chief minister’s concerns that Muslim women should be allowed to wear the ‘tudung’ and should be judged strictly on their performance,” he said.
F**k you Tantawi, wakakaka, and stop messing around with nons' celebrations and events. It's none of your bloody business.
