KUALA LUMPUR: Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz described the action of hotel chains prohibiting female employees from wearing hijab, if its true, as “kurang ajar” (rude) and irresponsible. He said, hotel chains, especially international hotel companies should respect local custom and laws when they enter the country. Why did they come here and then set rules that women can't wear hijab? What's the problem (with wearing hijab)? Nazri said this on reports about the policy held by hotel chains prohibiting women employees from wearing headscarves if they are working as frontliners or those who interact directly with guests.
