KUALA LUMPUR: Those advocating for the boycott of non-Muslim products are "narrow-minded" as Malaysia also trades with non-Muslim countries, says Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad.

"This thinking is very narrow-minded and it does not think about the long-term effects of such actions towards national unity and the relationship between races," he said during a press conference at the Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan on Tuesday (Sept 3).
