A comment from Malaysia Kini on the legalization of sports betting in Malaysia:
Vincent Tan (the tycoon who obtained the sports betting license) was reported as asking why these Muslims groups are unhappy when the government has made it clear that Muslims are not allowed to bet.
No, Vincent Tan. It is not only the Muslims who are unhappy – most non-Muslims are unhappy, too. No sane non-Muslim will support your argument. We non-Muslims are with the Muslim groups asking the government to withdraw the betting licence.
A bit late here in Singapore as the sports betting is common, and the two casinos are already in operation, but relevant nonetheless.
