THE news about a few restaurants that were told by Syariah Enforcement personnel to take down Christmas decorations came as a surprise to a few businessmen including me.
A few days later the Ministry of Religious Affairs clarified in your newspaper what it was all about. I wish the clarification was issued as a statement to us in the first place, which would have cleared the air.
The next big event is the Chinese New Year. So much is being spread on social media we do not know what to believe.
Instead of us following the usual practice only to be told that certain things may have to be removed, we businessmen wish the ministry issues guidelines, which will be easier to follow.
We respect the country’s stance. Help us by informing in advance.
