More foreign workers turning budget hotels into vice dens in Johor
AN increasing number of foreign workers are being caught committing khalwat (close proximity) in budget hotels, said Johor Islamic Religious Department assistant director Mohd Hafiz Abdul Rahman.
He said most of the workers, who were from industrial areas, treated budget hotels as vice dens.
“Compared with the Islamic prohibition on gambling, drinking alcohol and fornication, the khalwat offence is the most common among foreigners,” he said today.
He said in a two-hour operation to combat vice activities at Permas Jaya and Seri Alam budget hotels last night, 12 men and 10 women, aged between 18 and 40, were nabbed for khalwat.

Belly dancers brought in to entertain Bangladeshis
These women are made to wear the saree and entertain Bangladeshi men at some entertainment outlets in Kuala Lumpur, says report.
PETALING JAYA: The latest craze among Bangladeshis in Malaysia, it appears, is watching belly dancing. And the women dancers are being brought in from Bangladesh.
Several entertainment joints in Kuala Lumpur have become the scene for belly dancing for Bangladeshis in the country, according to a report in Harian Metro.
The Malay daily reported that women from Bangladesh were being brought in to work as belly dancers at several entertainment outlets in the capital.
These women, aged 20 to 25, were reportedly made to wear the saree and entertain the Bangladeshi men.
Federal Territory Immigration deputy director Mohd Sharulnizam Ismail was quoted as saying:“The women would be paid based on the number of flower garlands they received.”
Last Thursday night, an enforcement team raided two such premises and detained 27 Bangladeshis, including 14 women.
Most of these women had abused their social visit passes or student permits, Sharulnizam told the daily.

Restive over migrant workers in Kuala Lumpur on festive holidays
“Some of them just spit on the roadside,” said Siti Sarah Abdul Rahman.
The employee of an outlet at Suria KLCC was referring to a few among the hordes of migrant workers who pack tourist attractions in the city during the festival holiday periods, year in and year out.
“I have grown immune to such scenes though I feel uncomfortable with some of their habits,” she told Bernama.
There were times when she had feared for her safety because “these people like to gather in groups”, their usual haunts being the KLCC, Bukit Bintang, Central Market and Kota Raya.
The large number of these foreigners sometimes makes Kuala Lumpur look very “foreign” as public transport caters mostly to them during such holidays.
However, taxi operators were not complaining. Festive holiday periods are goldmines to them.
They were more than willing to entertain the migrant workers, who are mainly from Bangladesh, Myanmar, Pakistan, Vietnam, Indonesia and Nepal.
Indeed queues of taxis are common at Kota Raya, KLCC and Bukit Bintang.
Saiful Razak, a soft drinks hawker at Jalan Ampang, said the large number of migrant workers on holiday in the city centre, was good for his business, carried out on a tri-motorcycle.
