Malaysian-made whisky sparks calls for ban



A Malaysian-made whisky has sparked controversy, with some calling for sales of the liquor to be banned.
Some see the name and design of the award-winning spirit as insulting to Islam, the country’s main religion, and calls have gone up for sales of the whiskey to be banned.
However, some say this furore is largely political, pointing out that political parties have in the past portrayed themselves as defenders of a faith or a race as a tactic to gain votes.

  1. they have made the brand more popular nationwide and worldwide. thanks to them. sales have gone up and can you imagine, the malays ho drink will opt for this brand instead. and those who dont drink, will opt to try it. thanks to this silly morons.

  2. As a Malay Muslim, I can said this issued just being raised by dumbass politicians to avoid them being targeted by bigger issues such as Pandora papers, najib and corruptions.

  3. Malay sia is only good at small issues…….Big issues they are totally blank!. It is only the Minorities in Malaysia that make Malaysia name great. Period.
