‘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.

    Yes, I have noticed that when muslims behead kneeling prisoners. the victims are always wearing clean orange outfits.

  • Spatchcocked

    Subtext is that non Muslims are dirty.

      Precisely. Yet they never invented indoor plumbing or the flush toilet.

        or toilet paper, just the left hand, that is why criminals in islam have their right hand removed, they eat shit the rest of their days

    I actually don’t have a problem if a business wants to cater to a particular type of customer, and exclude others, with two codicils; there does need to be some limits. For example: a local utilities service providing natural gas or hydro shouldn’t discriminate, but a local bakery can. And it is universal – a buddist laundrymat should be able to refuse service to muslims, if they want to. Just imagine those bathroom hand towels…

    Oh’ yes: And they wipe their asses with their bare left hands. Do they stop to sniff?

  • Bigotry is alright when SOME people do it.

    Good to know. Why would I want to go to a laundromat where some muzzie might decide to get sudden jihad syndrome?

  • DMB

    I have no doubt that gay couples will insist that they be able to use a Muslim only laundromat. Oh sorry wrong religion!

    No need to go all the way to Malaysia to see “community cohesion”. There are plenty of “muslim only” appartment rental ads in Toronto.
