Syariah-compliant dress code for private sector receives enthusiastic support

The government will prepare a syariah-compliant dress code for the private sector, Minister in the PM’s Department Mujahid Yusof Rawa was reported by Malaysiakini as saying. The set of guidelines is expected to be completed by the end of the year, announced Mujahid.

In this regard, Harapan Yang Berhormats have shown great leadership by example – demonstrating how even non-Muslim women are perfectly happy and willing to comply with Islamic tutup aurat requirements.

The syariah-compliant dress code guideline being prepared by the Harapan government is merely a case of putting into practice what their Harapan female Christian leadership have already been signaling to non-Muslim women through their own lived example.

Syariah-compliant dress code in private sector good idea


A tudung guideline for non-Muslim women is something most welcomed by Malaysians who heartily support the government they have elected.

Harapan cabinet minister Yeo Bee Yin (picture below) the way to modest, syariah-compliant dressing in her beige gold patterned tudung and blue baju kurung.

Also pictured in tudung and baju kurung – hers a matching lemon yellow colour – is deputy minister Teo Nie Ching (below) also of DAP.

Christian politicians embrace Islamic head scarf

This tudung-wearing leadership by example is not merely being displayed by non-Muslim Harapan YBs at the cabinet level but also by DAP elected representatives in the state assembly. Take for instance YB Michelle Ng the Subang Jaya Adun modeling a tudung in her wefie (below, left) with mentor Hannah Yeoh.

Not to be outdone in indicating the moral appropriateness of wearing tudung, PKR’s Elizabeth Wong – a former Selangor senior exco – proves DAP is not alone in this sartorial promotion. Elizabeth is even more demure looking in her pink tudung litup below. She, Hannah, Michelle and Nie Ching are, only coincidentally, all Christian.

Britain and Europe respecting syariah compliance too

There’s nothing unusual about top Christian women leaders wearing tudung, which is called hijab in the west. Below are two pictures of British Prime Minister Theresa May donning the hijab.

Beneath Theresa’s photos is journalist Lauren Booth – a sister-in-law of former British PM Tony Blair – who wears hijab as she is a Muslim convert (seated on the right in picture).

A non-Muslim woman putting on the head scarf as the circumstances demanded of her is Swedish Trade Minister Ann Linde, pictured in February 2017. (Trivia: Notice that the Ikea logo is in the colours of the Swedish flag.)

To sum up, if the Harapan government requires private sector employees to comply with syariah tutup aurat, there is no reason for non Muslims who voted for Hatapan’s Malaysia Baru to object to such a measure.

  1. Guideline? Meaning not binding and enforceable? Employers can choose not to obey the guideline and will not be sanctioned?

    1. Employers and employees can be persuaded and ‘guidelines’ are usually complied with, e.g. a chef will not incur penalty (fine) by gomen if he fails to wear a cap, or similarly kitchen staff wearing apron. But restaurant workers wear them all the same.

      A business in tourism or hospitality sector may have company rule on batik.

      I’m sure Mujahid will be able to reason with private sector bosses who want to curry favour with the new administration. And he can enlist his evangelista friends to show more leadership by example.

      1. I don’t see the point of having a non legally binding guideline. The guideline is merely persuasive. It will get lots of hype initially, but it will gradually fade with no employers obeying it.

        If an employee genuinely put his/her religious conviction above monetary reward, why not resign from his/her current employment (that prohibits syariah-compliant dress code) and look for job else where (that allows syariah-compliant dress code)? It is a personal choice. No one forces him to stay put.

        By staying at his current employment and complaining of being prohibited from syariah-compliant dress code, it seems like this person is putting monetary reward (i.e. salary etc) above his religious conviction.

  2. Penang is in the news. On the BBC.Penang lang boleh

    The director of the George Town Festival said he was “directed” to take the portraits out by the minister of Islamic affairs, Mujahid Yusof Rawa.

    Mr Mujahid said the promotion of LGBT culture was not supported in Malaysia.

    The exhibition features a series of portraits with different Malaysians posing with the country’s flag.

    The photos were taken last year to commemorate 60 years of Malaysian independence.

    Among them were Nisha Ayub, a transgender activist who has won several awards, including the US Secretary of State’s International Women of Courage Award in 2016 for her work on transgender rights.

  3. Helen, do you wear a tudung? Or were you jilted by Hannah? Your obsession is quite amazing. How fat are you these days by the way? Also, free speech is great..but it also attaches responsibility to it. One of these days one of the nutters who believe you crap is going to do something stupid. Rest assured that if that happens, the authorities will come knocking on your door…
