Over the weekend, Malaysians have been debating non-stop about the Laundromat controversy. The self-service laundry store which is located in Muar, Johor sparked a huge discussion among Malaysians because of its sign that says “Muslims only”.

While it’s understood that the owner did so due to religious reasons, other Malaysians (including Muslims alike) couldn’t help but argue against it.

In cases like these, there’s no rights nor wrongs, but it really does pick at your brain – which is more right? We break down the two perspectives from fellow Malaysians for you.

Perspectives siding the laundromat

1. Being very cautious as cleanliness is very important for their prayers. Muslims can wash their clothes without fear and can perform their prayers knowing that their clothes are clean and pure.

2. The owner of the business has every right to do what he pleases.

3. It’s no big deal as there are other laundry shops non-muslims can go to.

4. Non-Muslims wanting to respect each other’s culture and religion, and tolerate this incident since it doesn’t harm nor affect non-Muslims.

 

Perspectives not siding the laundromat

1. This shows the need of segregating everything among races becoming stronger. It’ll affect Malaysia in the long run. Even a school once asked cups to be separated. What’s next? Where’s the unity?

2. What about the Ringgits and blood that are supposedly tainted? Why are those okay?

3. In Islamic jurisprudence, all are considered inherently clean and pure. Unless there’s a visible stain, all things are clean. There is no need to go overboard segregating everything.

There are many non-Muslims who are okay with the dobby doing as they pleased because it is ultimately still their business, whereas there are also Muslims who are not okay with this segregation. Personally? This is really a toughie. I’m not even sure where to stand. *scratches head*

What are your thoughts on this?
