In a statement, the Islamist party claimed that alcohol is not essential in facing the Covid-19 pandemic, and cause more harm than good.“PAS respects the right of non-Muslims to drink alcohol like our policies in Kelantan and Terengganu, but it does not count as needs while facing the critical situation of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“PAS through its Cabinet representatives will bring this issue up, so it will be reviewed and the decision reversed,” its information chief Kamaruzaman Mohamad said in a statement.The statement adds to criticism by PAS leaders of its allies in the Perikatan Nasional government over the decision to allow Heineken to remain operational. The Islamist party has long opposed the public consumption and sales of alcoholic beverages.
This comes as a letter by the ministry to Heineken went viral online, in which it agreed that the alcoholic drinks manufacturer is a food supply operator therefore allowed to operate during the MCO.The letter was signed by the ministry’s secretary-general Datuk Seri Hasnol Zam Zam Ahmad.
Datuk Alexander Nanta Linggi from Gabungan Parti Sarawak is the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry.Malaysiakinilater reported Heineken as confirming the letter to be authentic, with the company saying it will only operate with 10 per cent of its staff.
“To ensure full compliance with the government approval, only the essential workers whose names have been submitted and approved will carry the government approved letter and other company documentation to enable them to carry out their duties.“We have an obligation to ensure continuous supply of our products, maintain the employment of our people and to
contributepositively to the economic recovery of our nation,” Heineken was quoted saying by Malaysiakini.Under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures within Infected Local Areas) Regulations 2020, food manufacturer is one of the ten original industries in the list of essential services.
⬆️⬆️⬆️ LOOK UP ⬆️⬆️⬆️ Who's to blame? Narrow minded and irrelevant Hahaha Pastards There are other urgent matters that need your attention e g. econ, edu, lower crime rate, next gen workforce, safety & health re Covid19 etc. They are investing in the country and consuming is by choice, do u think the rakyat is not mature to do the right thing? Pathetic
WELL ITS BETTER TO CLOSE DOWN A BEER FACTORY THAN SUPPORTING LTTE TERRORISTS, DAP BITCHES PAS still think they are all holy and nice. God dammed. They are a bunch of religious locust. Group watsap tak da kot..menteri..he he he Hand sanitizer tu bukan alcohol kah. Bodoh bangang betul si liPAS ni. Tunggu nanti tengok kalo x pakai hand sanitizer alcohol mcm mana. Bodoh tahap tulen
Lordy I barely drink booze these days but I'd say it is one of those things that should be kept going even if only to annoy the puritans Just to cancel the permit? Thought you are supposed to shut all these factories down? The world can do without Heineken. I wish there's no alcoholic beverage factories in Malaysia to start with.
Just prove the point. Pas are idiots to the core. Never Forget.. WuhanVirus is The Real Name For Covid 19..we need to start calling it wuhanvirus not covid19 because some people tend to forget where this virus originated from.. Let us remind them back.. Its WUHAN VIRUS The only game play for dumno n Pas. One only steals and the other one gives a nice halal sticker to stealing. How many Muslims died from hospitals not having enough equipment thanks to the halal stealing.
Big salute if this can be achieved by lebai party. I'm waiting. stupid idea I guess there are no other pressing matters at hand...such as getting tabligh attendees to go come forward for testing.. Got to be amazed by PAS priority. The world is approaching recession due to coronavirus, and they are pressing on aurat and alcohol.
Pas you should spend your stupid time and effort on helping Malaysia to fight the Covid19 not Heineken! What's the priority now? Give an inch, want a yard. Stupid, if this is how they run the country then we r doom Suppose to be kerajaan kebajikan but i dont seems to see them championing it sincerely playing politics life long
No one is holding a gun to your head and making you drink it. Backward party from backward states stuck in 12th century. Cc syahredzan jgn meroyan k Still a lot of Tabligh attendees and their contacts have yet to come forward to be screened. If PAS really cares for the country, it is better they help the government to convince these people to come forward to be tested. Stop playing politics in this critical moment.
Thank you PAS So many more pressing issues during this time of emergency that need to be addressed and these lebais latch onto this? How politically bankrupt these fellas must be!
