The Mufti of Perlis explained that the owner was advised that such segregation was not right and does not follow the teachings of Islam.

However, he said that it was not wrong for the owner to operate a launderette with an Islamic concept, that is equipped with a surau and has versus from the Quran being played over the system.

In a report in Berita Harian, a Malay language daily in Malaysia, the owner said he was using the Islamic concept idea for marketing strategy purposes and had no intent on causing racial disturbances.
