A popular beauty center is making waves on Twitter after an individual exposed an incident of alleged discrimination, reported Beautiful Nara.
In a Twitter post, a woman claimed that the said a beauty center at Jaya One refused to serve her, citing that they only cater for Muslim customers.
On July 31 at 2.22pm, the woman reached out to the beauty center to inquire about their facial packages. During the conversation, the representative confirmed that their facial treatment was priced at RM70 and for Muslims only.
“Apparently for Muslims only. What’s the difference between a Muslim person’s skin and mine? I am genuinely asking.”
“The beauty center indirectly clarified in their Facebook reel that ‘aurat’ isn’t the issue (since they don’t discriminate), which means they follow Malaysian fatwa – also great.
From the same FB post, it’s clear that the fault is not with the company entirely but instead that particular branch. And since there is no ‘aurat’ issue, did the Jaya One branch practice discrimination?” the woman questioned in her tweet.
One netizen suggested reaching out to the active-on-social-media founder for clarity. This user expressed an interest in understanding any potential reasoning beyond the ‘aurat’ consideration, which they felt should apply to all, regardless of gender.
Another netizen speculated that it could be a case of disparity in business conduct across its various branches, where she mentioned frequenting the outlet in the Northern region and had encountered numerous Chinese and Indian customers.
Speaking to WeirdKaya, the woman said the outlet has not responded or addressed the concerns she had aired on Twitter.
Efforts were also made to contact the beauty center to comment on the matter but no reply was given at the time of publishing this article.
