Mydin Hypermarket

Probe into claims of selective sugar-selling - New Straits Times, 4th Oct 2006
  • A probe has been launched into complaints against Mydin Hypermarket for allegedly refusing to sell sugar to non-Malays.
  • Among the complaints include a letter to the New Straits Times alleging that the hypermarket only sold sugar to Malay customers but told others that they had run out.
  • Other residents here also complained that the outlet was racially biased against non-Malays.
  • The state enforcement unit chief Fahmi Kasim said a team conducted spot checks at the Mydin Hypermarket in Bandar Baru Uda here. Without disclosing any details, he said the management had been advised not to practise discrimination.
  • He also said the management had earlier explained that it was trying to restrict customers from buying too much sugar at the expense of those who would be celebrating the festivities.

You can restrict people from over-stocking sugar but you shouldn't stop those that are really in need, irregardless of race. Let's boycott Mydin Hypermarket if this is true. Whether you are Bumi or non-Bumi, we should act together and condemn this discrimitory act for the sake of racial harmony. "The management has been advised"? We need more action for this issue, this is simply unacceptable. I think we should probe into the enforcement unit's decision, while they are probing the hypermarket.
