TWO-YEAR-OLD Boy Denied treatment at government Hospital because Mother’s pants were to short

The Islamization program since the 1980s has produced more incidents of imposition of  Islamic values on non-Muslims in the government bureaucracy. We read earlier of citizens who were denied entry into government offices on grounds of ‘inappropriate’ dressing. Imposition of Islamic cultural values on non-Muslims reminds us of the injustice suffered by ‘dhimmis’ (non-Muslim minorities) under Islam in its early history. The recent incident of denying medical treatment to a wounded boy takes ‘dhimminization’ of non-Muslims to a whole new level.


A TWO-YEAR-OLD boy was allegedly denied treatment at two government clinics and a hospital because the pants his mother and aunt were wearing were too short.
China Press reported that the boy cut his finger last Saturday at about noon and was rushed to a Klinik 1Malaysia in Saleng, Johor Baru, for treatment. However, his mother was told that her pants were too short and that she had to cover up with a sarong. His aunt, who was also wearing a pair of short pants, was denied entry into the clinic. The mother claimed that they waited for about two hours and the boy did not get any proper treatment for his injuries.

They then brought the boy to another Klinik 1Malaysia in Bandar Indahpura, Kulai, where the mother and aunt also claimed that they were denied entry due to the length of their pants.
At the Kulai Hospital later, the mother and aunt were again allegedly denied entry for the same reason, forcing them to rush the boy to a private clinic nearby, where the boy was finally given treatment. The boy’s father, Wong Xiang Lan, said his wife was allowed entry into the clinic in Saleng after putting on a sarong.
“My son was crying aloud at that time, so a nurse gave my wife a sarong and let her in,” he said.
