KUALA LUMPUR: Traders selling paint brushes are given up to two months to put labels on the brushes to differentiate products that can be sold to Muslims and non-Muslims, says Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin.

He also ordered a stop to all operations to search and seize paint brushes made of pig bristles or dog hair following a Cabinet meeting on the matter.
