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.
