'Thai Hot Guy' event not appropriate during Ramadan, says Home Minister

PUTRAJAYA: There must be mutual respect among Malaysians especially during the holy month of Ramadan, says Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.

The Home Minister said an event such as the publicised "grand opening" of the Privacy Club Tun Razak bar should not go on as it could cause anxiety especially among Muslims who will be observing Ramadan.

"We will find out where they got their approval from (and also contact) the local authorities on this matter," he told reporters after attending the ministry's monthly assembly here on Wednesday (March 22).

Several images circulated on social media on Tuesday (March 21) showing muscular men dressed in lingerie, billed as "Thai Hot Guys", to promote the opening of the bar on March 30.

Several political parties have since called for action to be taken against the event organiser.
