Umno Youth wants Muslim flight stewardesses to 'cover up'

The Star/ANN | Wednesday, Aug 27, 2014

MALAYSIA - Responding to Khazanah Nasional Bhd's takeover and transformation of Malaysia Airlines (MAS), Umno Youth exco member Dazma Shah Daud has suggested to make it compulsory for Muslim flight stewardesses to wear the head scarve and uniform that cover their aurat. He said the move would help to improve the image and integrity of MAS.

His suggestion was well-received by the MAS Employees Union (Maseu).

Umno Youth's Religious Bureau chairman Azmir Yuzaimi Mohd Yunos had also suggested that the airline stop serving alcohol as it was against Islamic teachings. He said besides MAS, all other airlines operating in the country should stop serving alcohol.
