Malaysians call to allow alcohol to be serve in all shops
Malaysian urge the Kuala Lumpur City Hall to allow all shops to sell alcohol and neglect the discussion to ban all liquor in grocers, convenience stores, and Chinese medicine shops.
The ban was expected to come to effect yesterday (October 1) but has been now postponed to allow a study in relation to the control of liquor sales in Kuala Lumpur.
The municipal said, “The availability and accessibility of liquor have been the subject of complaints and protests as it can be detrimental to public order.”
But Malaysians are saying that any ban is unnecessary and stores should be able to sell when they have the license.
Adam Shoukat wants these stores to be left alone as it is a non-Muslim issue.
He added, “These facilities should be allowed and we can’t restrict them otherwise government will have fewer taxes and so forth.”
He also wanted the authorities to focus on other issues that need a higher priority.
Tick Cheu Lun saw no reason why the alcohol departments should be closed in any shop.
After all, the selling of such beverages is only for business survival especially when they are making less in the pandemic.
Christopher Chua replied to Tick that if the government really intends to curb public disorder due to accessibility to alcohol, they would have shut down breweries located in the nation.
