KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 20 — Barbershops have opened in some parts of Malaysia in an attempt to curb illegal hunting and the trafficking of guns.
Key points:The Barberskills of Sabah and Sarawak will open their doors to the public on FridayThe Barber Shop of Sabak, which has been open since December, has been the target of several legal cases in the pastTwo shops opened in Malaysia’s south, and one in Penang and another in Johor BahruThis is a first for Malaysia, and comes as authorities try to curb the illegal market in firearmsThe government of Malaysia is now encouraging businesses to open their barbershops in the country, and is now offering discounts to locals.
The Barbskills, Sabak and Sarak bars have been open for three months, and will open to the community on Friday.
Sabah’s Barbers and Beauty Salon owner Khairatul Islam said that the barbershop in the city of Sultan Murad had been open a few months back.
“There are about three or four shops in the area, and the Barbers’ Shop in Sabah is the one with the most customers.
The others are in Penangs and Johor Borneo,” he said.
He said the barber shops were the only ones in Sabak with any permits.
Mr Islam said his shop opened in January this year.
“We started the business last year and the first year it only had around 30 customers, but we started having more customers last year,” he told News24.
It is unclear how many people will be allowed to shop at the BarbsKills in Sabachan.
In January, the Sultan Muradh government banned all hunting of firearms, except for the hunting of deer.
But Mr Islam said the government did not want to lose any business in the region.
We wanted to take a step by taking away all the hunting and hunting activities, he said, adding that he wanted to open up as many shops as possible to cater to the needs of the community.
Last month, the government also made the Barber’s Shop of Johor Penang open to residents.
Since the last ban on hunting, there have been two cases of illegal hunting in Peninsular Malaysia.
This is the first time the Sultan Masjid has opened its doors to a large number of locals in Malaysia, he added.
The Barbies are part of a wider campaign to bring back the traditional way of life for Malaysians, as they are also part of the national anthem, said the owner of the Barbies, Abdullah Hamza.
Many of the barbies have been closed due to legal issues.
They are located in the main commercial centre in Sabang, a shopping district on the south coast of Penang.
A BarbersShop is usually a place where people buy clothes, shoes and other items.
However, they are not permitted to sell firearms and knives in the shops, and their shops are only open to Malaysians.
Keen to keep their traditions alive, Mr Islam is also encouraging the locals to visit the Barbys in their shops.
I am doing my best to keep the traditions alive and keep people happy, he told Malaysiakini.
My intention is to keep Sabah, and Penang, as a good place for people to come and shop.
But many Malaysians feel the Barriers are too close to their homes.
When Mr Islam opened his Barbers shop in Sabag, he had to turn away many customers because they were not Malaysian.
Recently, there was another complaint of illegal huntings in Saban.
The government has promised to crack down on illegal hunting.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak last month promised to introduce laws that would make it a crime to kill, injure or trap wildlife.
Malaysia has been a haven for wildlife since it was established in 1908 as a British colony.
The country has a long history of wildlife conservation.
More than 200 species of birds have been protected by the country’s Wildlife Protection Act.
The Sultan Murah is a natural harbour for migrating birds and other marine life, as well as a gateway for travellers from all over Asia and the world.
