Govt should prohibit entertainment activities that are against Islamic laws, says Kuala Krai MP

KUALA LUMPUR: All forms of entertainment activities that are against Islamic laws should be prohibited by the Perikatan Nasional government, says Abdul Latiff Abdul Rahman (PN-Kuala Krai).

“I urge the prohibition of all entertainment events that are against Islamic laws, more so when Muslims are still celebrating the birth of the Prophet Muhammad, ” he said during his debate speech on Budget 2021 in Parliament on Monday (Nov 6).

Abdul Latiff also said such entertainment activities were inappropriate and outrageous, as most Malaysians are still reeling from the economic effects of Covid-19.

“The organisers did not take into account the sensitivity and the catastrophe which the nation is currently facing, ” he added.

Earlier in his speech, Abdul Latiff also praised the government for allocating RM1.4bil for Islamic affairs, which he said is an increase compared to its previous allocations.

“This shows how important Islamic development is, as it is given a strong emphasis by the government of the day, ” he added.
