Here we go. Religious wallahs in Bolehland can’t help getting between people and their God. Dont they have anything else to do, like helping the nation overcome price hikes, solving murders where models’ bodies get blasted all over the place and getting to the bottom (euwwwww!) of sodomy allegations?
Malaysian state may compel Muslim civil servants to pray 5 times a day | The Jakarta Post: “Malaysian state may compel Muslim civil servants to pray 5 times a day

A Malaysian state governed by a conservative Islamic party plans to compel Muslim government
workers to pray five times a day as required by their religion, an official said Tuesday.
Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, the chief minister of northeastern Kelantan state, said Muslims who shirk their prayer obligations ‘are not fearful of Allah and are susceptible to committing bribery and other sins.’
Kelantan is planning to introduce a law to force Muslim government workers to pray five times a day, said the minister’s aide Anual Bakri Haron.
He said details on how to enforce the plan will be finalized later.
Kelantan has been ruled since 1990 by the conservative Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, which has implemented strict morality rules such as banning gambling, nightclubs and rock concerts.”
