Kartika Dewi Shukarno will be the first Muslim in Malaysia prosecuted for drinking a glass of beer and PAS Youth today proposing today ban of liquor in Muslim majority areas.

PAS Youth is preparing a paper proposing guidelines on the sale of liquor in Pakatan Rakyat states, its deputy chief Azman Shapawi Ab Rani said.

However, the paper to be ready by the year end, would not propose a total ban on liquor sale as non-Muslims had a right to drink it.

“We may propose that the sale of liquor be banned in certain areas where Muslims make up a large majority,” he told a press conference here Saturday.

Azman said other than Kedah, Kelantan, Selangor and Penang, the proposal would also include Perak as PAS still considered the state to be under Pakatan Rakyat.

On the Bagan Pinang by-election, he said PAS Youth would ask the Election Commission (EC) to allow the party to campaign to the 5,000 postal voters.

“We hope EC will meet our request. If others can enter the place, then I am sure the candidate can meet voters to explain the party manifesto,” he added.
