PETALING JAYA, May 8 — It won’t be easy to implement ‘hudud’ in this country where Muslims and non-Muslims are living together, said former MCA President Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.
“Of course certain quarters advocating the implementation of ‘hudud’ laws will argue that this is only applicable for Muslims but at the end of the day, the implementation is certainly going to affect everybody’s life and is not only for Muslims.”
“Our country has been using secular policies. It doesn’t mean that we tend to turn a blind eye to the reality that Malaysia is a Muslim majority country,” he told reporters after a press conference on “Advocating For Guide Dogs’ Right To Be Allowed To Be At Public Facilities” here today.
Meanwhile, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Dialogue in The Dark Sdn Bhd (DID), Stevens Chan Kum Fai, said the Malaysia Glaucoma Society (MGS) with the aid of Safe One’s Side Mission Bhd has been advocating the Dog for Sight Campaign since 2012.
“The campaign is to educate the public on the need to give visually impaired citizens a chance to regain their lives, dignity and mobility with the assistance of a guide dog,” he said while introducing his guide dog, Lashawn Chan. — Bernama
