Dress code: Another setback for unity


IS there a new dress code for female government servants?

While the baju kurung is allowed to be worn by female government staff, irrespective of race, the attire identified with other races is to be donned only by the staff of those communities concerned. This was disclosed during two separate seminars held recently.

This latest development is indeed disheartening and runs against the spirit of Malaysian unity.

I hope this is not the stand of the government and just the misplaced over-zealousness of a few officers down the line.

As long as an employee is appropriately dressed, why should the origin of the attire matter?
