The Malay Mail Online - Can sue RTD for refusing service over dressing, lawyers say
Former Sessions Court judge Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin said the RTD, which prohibits visitors from wearing skirt lengths above the knee, shorts or sleeveless shirts at its offices, has no business imposing the Islamic dress code on the public.
“It’s illegal and can be challenged in court,” Noor Farida told Malay Mail Online.
“They can only do so if it is provided for under their governing Act, which is the Road Transport Act.
“The JPJ should confine itself to undertaking its role and functions as mandated by the Road Transport Act and not arrogate to itself the function of moral policing,” added Noor Farida, who is also a member of G25, a group of Malay former high-ranking civil servants fighting for moderation.
This would be how it will start, with lil' Napoleons shafting Islamic requirements down the throats of non-Muslims bit by bit, and long before we know it, we'll all be dhimmis.
Dr M has a lot to answer for his 929 and 617 Declarations, when he announced Malaysia as being not a moderate Islamic state but a Islamic fundamentalist state.
By the way MCA and Gerakan did nothing to stop nor speak against them, thus they unlike DAP have been complicit in the proselytizing threat against our non-Muslim values and lifestyle, as Suzanna Tan had just found out to her distress.

Lim Guan Eng has been totally spot on in refusing, like my late Bhai, to countenance PAS' intention to implement hudud.
