Women, you have to be careful with what you wear out in public when you are in Kelantan otherwise you may just find yourself being penalised! On Sunday (April 15), an operation was carried out to stop women from exposing their aurat in Kelantan and to enforce the syariah rules.

According to NST, several agencies had come together to carry out the operation, which was known as ‘Ops Sopan’, in Kota Bharu. They managed to find 25 women who were caught in indecent clothing and subsequently punished them. Kota Bharu Municipal Council (MPKB), Kelantan Islamic Religious Affairs Department and National Anti-drug Agency went to various hypermarkets, hotels and resort areas to find women who were wearing tight clothes.

A MPKB spokesman said that there were 90 officers involved in the operation, which started at 5pm and ended at 8pm. He said, “Among the locations were AEON, KB Mall, Parkson, Giant, Tesco, Pantai Cahaya Bulan and a few other locations. The enforcement agencies managed to issue 21 notices and four summonses to local women who wore tight clothes.”

The 21 women were given notices that required them to attend counselling sessions as a result of their tight clothing while the other four women were slapped with court summonses for the same indecency. In addition, the officers also took the opportunity to educate the public about covering their aurat and had handed out more than 1,000 flyers in a bid to encourage them to dress decently.

However, it has been said that this law only affects Muslim women and that non-Muslims would not be affected, The Star had previously reported. Muslim women found guilty of dressing up in tight or sexy clothing in public places would be punished under Section 5 of the Kelantan Syariah Criminal Enactment Code 1985. They are liable to be fined up to RM1,000, get a jail sentence of up to six months, or both, upon conviction.

You know what to wear when in Kelantan, everyone!
