A SUPERMARKET chain’s newly opened outlet in Puncak Alam, Selangor has stopped selling alcoholic drinks following protest from a state assemblyman.

Jeram representative Mohd Shaid Rosli also posted on Facebook that Puncak Alam “is Malay territory”.

He also earlier sent a memorandum to the management of the Jaya Grocer outlet in Eco Grandeur, Puncak Alam, to protest the sale of alcohol there.

Following this, the supermarket complied and boarded up the entrance to its non-halal section, the photos of which were shared by Mohd Shaid.

Mohd Shaid, previously from Bersatu and now a supporter of Pejuang, said he had received many complaints from nearby residents of alcohol-related crimes and strained family relations.

He added that Puncak Alam had 90 per cent Muslim population.

“This is Puncak Alam. This is Malay territory,” he posted on Facebook.
