Miss Plus World Malaysia 2020 To Be Held Tonight With No Muslim Participants

Kuala Lumpur: The organisation of Miss Plus World Malaysia 2020 will be held in the capital Kuala Lumpur tonight, despite various objections. Yayasan Dakwah Islamiah Malaysia (YADIM) stressed that the organisers must abide by the promise as agreed.

The President of YADIM, Nasrudin Hassan said, the Islamic Religious Department (Jakim) had held a meeting with the organisers on 31 December, before reaching a consensus.

“Among the results reached is that the organisers will not involve Muslim participants (drop out of participation) in the event scheduled for tonight.
“No Muslim female contestant will be the winner and representative to the International Level at Miss Plus World USA.

Muslim participants will only be observers and sit at the VIP table (dignitaries),” he said in a statement.

Apart from that, Nasrudin said, Jakim only agreed to work with the organisers for a program in the form of raising the dignity of Muslim women in accordance with the demands of Islamic teachings.

“Therefore, YADIM, which also represents hundreds of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) of the Malaysian Islamic Charity Council (MAIM) and Muslims in Malaysia, has high hopes that the organizers are committed and keep their promises as agreed,” he said.
