P. Gunasegaram wrote “let it operate like how a lot of other businesses are allowed to” in his Malaysiakini column yesterday, referring to the Heineken and Carlsberg factories work freeze during the present movement control order (MCO) period.
R. Nadeswaran meanwhile griped about leaders who, for the sake of their own political survival, remained silent in the face of unrelenting encroachment by (non beer-drinking) religious zealots. In his Malaysiakini column yesterday, Nades had been similarly exercised by the beer brewing issue.
M. Thayaparan also complained about the government revoking the operating rights of the two beer brewers during this MCO, characterizing the sudden revocation as an application of brute force sanctioned by the state to curtail the rights of religious minorities. His views are aired in his Malaysiakini column today.
