The Kelantan government will be taking action against the civil servants who are found to dress in a way that do not cover up their privates, especially for the female employees.
The matter was brought up by Chairman of the Islamic Development, Da’wah, Information and Public Relations, Mohd Nassuruddin Daud and he said that there are existing dress codes for civil servants.
In addition, he said that there are civil servants who wore tight clothing and that the administration will advice them to refrain from doing so. He added that the state government may take action if required.
He said this during the 7th Kelantan Ummah Dialogue that took place on Sunday (10 October) in response to a question raised by the Meranti State Assemblyman (Adun) that asked about the dress code among civil servants in the state.
When being asked about the actions that state government’s role had taken in the education system to address the social problems in Kelantan, Nassuruddin said that parents should play their role in reducing social problems too.
He said that the education system in mosques and schools are running well.
“Actually, from the point of view of Islamic education in Kelantan, there are already teachers in mosques, suraus and madrasahs.”
“In schools, whether primary, national or religious schools, we also have a curriculum in terms of Islamic education.”
“It’s just that the parents should play their role in monitoring their children. We as parents sometimes should not only care about the child’s Islamic education, but learning Islamic morality is important as well.”
“As of now, social problems are getting more serious than ever.” he said.
He added that the state government should not be held accountable for the issue as it requires the cooperation from all parties to handle it.
He added that family institution needs to play their role in reducing social problems.
“The government has their responsibility of running the government agencies, so as parents having their responsibility as being a parent.” Nassuruddin said.
Nonetheless, he said that according to the state laws, indecent acts, including inappropriate dress codes, can carry a fine of RM1,000 or imprisonment for 6 months.
