MALAYSIAN GOVT BAN 24 HOUR STALL IN HOUSING AND RURAL AREAS?


KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's famous 24-hour Mamak Stalls and hawker in specific areas such as in housing and rural areas may soon be no more, if a proposal submitted to the government to clamp down on these late night eateries, apparently to curb social ills, is adopted.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Shahidan Kassim(photo) said the proposal to restrict operating hours to midnight followed complaints that such outlets were the reason for the rise in social ills nationwide.
A note and proposal paper will be submitted to the Deputy Prime Minister and National Social Council, he told reporters at Parliament lobby here yesterday.
According to Shahidan, It is not a blanket ban on all restaurants or eateries  and franchise outlets such as McDonald's and Kentucky Fried Chicken were not included in the ban.
However, Prime Minister Datuk Najib Abd Razak(photo), said today the shops could stay open.The prime minister has given the all-clear for 24-hour eating places to remain open all through the night.
His announcement ends several days of an outcry from customers and owners of mamak shops and food courts.
Earlier, Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) publicity bureau chairman Chai Kim Sen(photo) has urged The Malaysian government to rethink the proposal to ban eateries from operating beyond midnight. 
He said there was no clear link between restaurant operating hours 
and social ills.
