The Terengganu government is the first to announce what the PAS is set to achieve under its rule in a bid to satisfy its electorate. That is to enforce its shariah-compliant dress code, especially for Muslim tourists. Terengganu exco Razali Idris says among others, this will involve working with tourism players. That also means Muslim tourists will be advised on what to wear and possibly on the fact that alcohol, in particular, is not acceptable for Muslims to drink.

The decision to address the dress code for tourists apparently comes after Lalang assemblyman Zuraida Md Noor expressed frustration at seeing some Muslim tourists disregarding the state’s guidelines. Thus, Terengganu will also put more signboards on the ‘Islamic’ dress code at all the entry points into the state. The issue of dress codes and what to eat or drink started in the Parliament when Tourism Minister Tiong King Sing queried the Langkawi MP Mohd Suhaimi Abdullah on alleged incidents in which tourists were asked not to wear shorts in public.
