Authorities urged to end Valet Doa's 'pay per prayer'
The Fatwa Council and the Islamic Development Department (Jakim) must issue guidelines to stop individuals from "commercialising religion", said the Muslim Consumers Association (PPIM).
PPIM chief Nadzim Johan said this after entrepreneur Nasrin Harin said he will not shut down his Valet Doa service where he charges a fee to read out doa (invocations) for customers at Muslim holy sites in Mecca.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
