PUTRAJAYA: The "Thai Hot Guy" event, to be held in conjunction with the opening ceremony of a nightclub in Kuala Lumpur planned for March 30, should not take place as it coincides with the holy month of Ramadan.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said such an event would cause unrest among Muslims, who are set to observe the fasting month starting tomorrow.

"It is too early for me to comment on the matter, but such activities could cause unrest and there is a need to have mutual respect in this multiracial country, in which every race has its own sensitivities.

"As a minister, I believe that it is everyone's duty to respect the arrival of this holy month and take the opportunity to strengthen the elements of mutual understanding and not enter any 'territory' where sensitivities can be triggered," he told reporters after attending his ministry's monthly assembly.

Saifuddin gave his assurances that the authorities will investigate the matter, including the event organiser.

Earlier today, Pas called on the authorities, especially Kuala Lumpur City Hall, to act against the event, which was insensitive as it was to be held during Ramadan, as well as the fact that it is contrary to local culture.

In a statement, Pas secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan said the event promotes hedonism, pornography and free sex, and also does not support the nation's aspiration to create a society of morals with a noble character that contributes to the common well-being.

New Umno Youth chief Dr Muhamad Akmal Saleh had also said that the wing's representatives are planning to lodge a police report on the event.

According to a Facebook post, the event is scheduled to be held on March 30 from 6pm, and is limited to 250 visitors.

The event would feature a performance by a group of burly male waiters from Thailand dressed in women, the group being known as Thai Hot Guy, as its main attraction for the grand opening.
