Home minister tells KL club to cancel ‘Thai Hot Guy’ show out of respect for Ramadan

·2-min read

Home minister Saifuddin Nasution Ismail today advised event planners and venues to avoid holding performances that are considered offensive and indecent, particularly during the holy month of Ramadan, which begins tomorrow.

The Privacy Club on Jalan Tun Razak will open on Mar. 30 with ‘Thai Hot Guy’, a live show featuring Thai men in lingerie performing – but of course, this was opposed by Saifuddin..

“It is best for such events not to be continued because it could create certain uneasiness. This is because Muslims worldwide will be welcoming Ramadan (tomorrow).

“There must be mutual respect from everyone living in a multicultural society. They need to be aware of the certain sensitivities of respective communities,” he told a press conference after the ministry’s monthly gathering.

According to Saifuddin, his employees had to ascertain the truth regarding the event in question, its planners, and the regional body in charge of giving the occasion approval.

The male performers will take part in the Privacy Club launch event, per online event ads and a Facebook post by Malaysia Pub.

Online advertisements for the debut feature hulking men in lingerie and scanty waitress attire.

Azman Abidin, the political secretary to the prime minister, stated earlier today that Kuala Lumpur City Hall is ready to take enforcement action if the law is broken.

The location, which is licensed as a restaurant to Beijing 9 Sdn Bhd, was discovered to be running without a valid restaurant license as of February 4, 2021, and without a valid entertainment license for the upcoming launch event.
