Malaysia: Self-service launderette bans non-Muslims

(Muar)  The owner of a self-service launderette in  Malaysia has banned Non-Muslims from using it by claiming that he was worried that there might be "unclean" elements such as dog fur on the clothes non-Muslims brought to his launderette. and that non-Muslims could visit other nearby launderettes.

When the owner was interviewed by the media, He said he was just carrying out his duty as a Muslim.

local Mullah Datuk Mohd Tahrir Samsudin has defended this ban by saying that the launderette's move was commendable as cleanliness is a priority for Muslims.
"This should not be turned into an issue as it only encourages negative perception from non-Muslims towards Muslims.I think it is a good move as Muslims will no longer be doubtful when using the self-service launderette"
