‘Muslims-only’ laundromat sparks controversy on social media

Laundrette operator: I’m not racist, I just want cleanliness

PETALING JAYA: The operator of a Muslim-only self-service laundrette in Muar says he is not racist as some have claimed but only wants to ensure that cleanliness can be maintained at all times.

Speaking to FMT today, he stressed on the issue of cleanliness, explaining that 95% of the customers at his laundrette were Muslims.

“If we look at the issue from an Islamic perspective, cleanliness is very important to us and something we must strive for at all times.

“There are other laundrettes available nearby. So, it wouldn’t be a problem for non-Muslims if they needed to find another place to wash their clothes,” said the laundrette operator, who did not wish to be named.
