PETALING JAYA: An MCA leader has urged Putrajaya to draft a federal law to stop local authorities from acting as moral police after a fine was imposed on the owner of a Kelantan hair salon.

On July 9, the Kota Bharu Municipal Council (MPKB) fined a hair salon owner RM100 for allowing a female worker to cut the hair of a Muslim male customer.

MCA vice-president Ti Lian Ker acknowledged that state governments and local councils had the right to draft their own by-laws to govern traders. However, he said, these by-laws should not contravene federal laws, particularly the Federal Constitution.
